Kim Kardashian was the best kind of SNL host. I wish more were like her.

There are four types of Saturday Night Live hosts. And the type of host you are will typically have everything to do with how good the episode is.

The first type is the comedians/repeat hosts/returning cast members/fan favorite. The John Mulaneys, Dave Chappelles, Kristin Wiigs, Alec Baldwins, and Justin Timberlakes of the world. These episodes are usually really good because the host gets it. They know what needs to be done to make good comedy.

The second is the performer there to promote something. This is the most common kind of host, obviously. An actor with a new movie or popular TV show, or a singer with a new album out. These episodes can be hit or miss, and honestly they mostly run together after a while.

The third kind of host is the person who is getting a lot of bad press and needs to improve their public persona. It’s these episodes when you have a teenage Justin Bieber breaking the fourth wall during a sketch to apologize for smoking weed. Or you have a president-who-shall-not-be-named who hosts in the middle of his campaign because everyone incorrectly assumed the campaign was a joke. Now we’re not only stuck with a very unfunny four years of history, but we’re also stuck with an incredibly bad SNL episode.

These hosts pretty much are always terrible because these hosts always either A) Clearly do not want to be there and make it very apparent they’re only doing this because their publicist said they needed to or B) They go the Elon Musk route and try wayyyyy too hard to say, “I’m not a bad person! I’m quirky and weird and fun!” and it’s incredibly annoying and disingenuous.

The fourth kind of SNL is the best kind. These are the hosts who go all in on the job. They are not comedy people, sometimes not even actors or entertainers in any way. But they clearly came in the first day and said, “I will do whatever,” with the enthusiasm of a golden retriever. They have nothing to lose and nothing to gain. They just go for it and have fun.

I always think of Ryan Gosling as this kind of host. When Ryan Gosling hosted SNL in 2015, he was known at the time as a very private person and a smoldering dramatic actor who probably doesn’t even know he’s a hugely popular meme on the internet.

There were no expectations for Ryan Gosling other than being hot and yet he attacked every sketch with the joy of a high school sophomore who received his first part in the school play. He was a joy to watch the entire night. (Watch him break in this Close Encounters sketch. I love him infinitely.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfPdYYsEfAE)

These “go for it” hosts are the best because the success of an episode completely hinges on the energy and enthusiasm of the host. A bad energy host can ruin a greatly written episode, but a great energy host can completely change a poorly written episode.

When I heard Kim Kardashian (West (apparently still)) was hosting SNL, my first thought was actually shock that they waited this long. How did they not invite her to host five years ago? I mean, her show ended several months ago, and, if we’re being honest, Kim has been greatly outshined by her two youngest siblings recently.

But you know what? If she would have hosted SNL five years ago it would have been one of those terrible need-to-get-some-good-press hosting jobs. KKW was a different person then. Now, she has nothing to lose. The Kardashians have made billions of dollars off of knowing how to bounce back from bad press in their own way, and frankly they do a better job on their own than any SNL hosting gig would do.

KKW now? She made for a great SNL host because she’s now in on all the jokes. She doesn’t care the show wrote an entire monologue filled with OJ Simpson jokes and jabs at her mom. It was clear from that monologue the writers wrote a roast of Kim thinking she wouldn’t take the bite, and yet, she did and came across as much more down to earth than any Instagram post or episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians ever could.

There were several signals that the SNL writers and producers didn’t expect much from Kim. There are actually a couple tell-tale signs that behind the scenes they’re worried about a particular host. For one, they’ll bring in a musical guest who has successfully hosted before. That way, if it gets late in the week and things seem to be going south, they know they can bring in the musical guest for a sketch or two to act as a de facto host and help out. It’s why Miley Cyrus was the musical guest when Elon Musk hosted last year. It’s also probably a big reason why Halsey was the musical guest this week, because she hosted in 2019 (And was also the fourth kind of host. She was so fun and I think about this sketch in particular all the time – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-Oprhoyfio)

The other sign writers are nervous about a host is when they bring in a lot of outside cameos. Think about any episode where during goodbyes the host ran down a huge list of celebrities who appeared that night. Nine times out of 10 they’re not good episodes.

This week, there was a sketch spoofing The Bachelorette that had the most random collection of cameos I’ve ever seen on SNL. Chace Crawford? (side note: I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Chace Crawford in one thing since Gossip Girl ended, like, a decade ago, and I’m also pretty sure he was wearing a toupee Saturday night). Tyler Cameron? I mean, I guess, since it’s a Bachelorette spoof, but wow. Jesse Williams, John Cena, and Chris Rock? It’s like somehow these were the only celebrities left in New York last weekend. Also, the one sketch that featured a ton of celebrity cameos was very much the weakest sketch of the night last week. The point of having Kyle Mooney be the weird guy of the group took too long to become apparent, and it was just poorly written. It easily could have been cut for something else.

And even with these signs there wasn’t much confidence in Kim, she proved them wrong. She was really great in two pre-recorded sketches, poking fun at her age (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94D4DzLS93E) and Instagram videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gd1XV9oohLY). And while her live acting was a bit stilted, again it was made up for by the fact she seemed to be genuinely enjoying the job.

The Kardashians have built a brand, and frankly changed American pop culture, off of proving people wrong at every turn, and when Kim couldn’t have had expectations any lower on Saturday night, she again proved people wrong, and was honestly the best kind of SNL host.

And, for the record, I have much lower expectations for this week’s host, Rami Malek, so here’s hoping he takes a page out of the Kardashian book and goes all in as well.

Newsflash: Fall weather is the worst

Listen, I’m gonna be honest with you.

Fall weather is the worst weather.

Unpopular opinion? Don’t care. Fall weather sucks which makes fall suck. And you know I’m right.

Here is how every fall day goes down.

You wake up in the morning. You check your little weather app on your phone. “Ohhh, 56 degrees outside. I’m going to wear a jacket!”

You put on that jacket for the first time since last fall. You might even find a crisp $5 bill hiding in the pocket. You think, “This is going to be a good day!”

You put on your jeans. You loveeee jeans. You put on shoes AND socks. You put on a long-sleeved shirt, because you can’t wear a short-sleeved shirt with a jacket. You’re not a moron. And you put on your jacket and you strut out that door feeling like Kaia Gerber at New York Fashion Week.

And when you step out of your house at 8:29 a.m. that fall air hits your face and you’re all, “Wow, this is nice.”

And then 8:30 a.m. happens. When 8:30 a.m. happens you’re now outside of your home in jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, shoes AND socks, and a jacket and it. Is. So. Hot.

For a brief moment you think “It’s O.K., this is fine,” because you so desperately want it to be fine. I get it. Because summer sucks, too. The only season worse than fall is summer. No one enjoys wearing shorts. And if you do enjoy wearing shorts I promise I do not trust you as a person. Any temperature above 90 degrees should be illegal.

So you get to September 21 and it is fall and you’re SO ready to have those bleak summer months behind you. You want to go to a pumpkin patch, you want to step on crunchy leaves, and, gosh-dern-it, you just want to wear a jacket!

But you get to midday in fall and you’ve long ditched that jacket but you’re still in long sleeves because YOU CAN’T WEAR SHORT SLEEVES WITH A JACKETS and you’re sweaty. You’re so sweaty. You’re sweating like a high school freshman in 2004 who insisted on wearing a tank top under two Polo shirts because for some reason in 2004 Abercrombie told us we all had to wear layers on layers on layers and we were miserable but we didn’t know why.

And at this point you’re basically crying because it’s so hot and fall is that guy who tells you “I’m different from other seasons!” and you trusted him and he let you down.

So now you’re stuck carrying around that stupid jacket all day and you can’t let it out of your sight because when you were in third grade your mom said, “Cara Marie, if you lose one more jacket you’re not getting anything for Christmas!” And then you think about Christmas, and Santa, and how nice it must be to be in the North Pole where jackets are not just a cute fashion accessory but actually necessary. And you start to long for Christmas and winter and hot cocoa that would actually warm you up and not just basically feel like a refreshing cool drink at this point. Do you know how hot it is?!

So you finally go outside (oh, by the way, you were hot inside, too, because every place on earth has already turned its AC off). So you finally go outside. You’re dragging that stupid jacket behind you like Linus’s blanket. You make it home and immediately change into shorts and a t-shirt and your sweaty legs stick to every surface they come in contact with. But it’s your own doing because you have also already turned your AC off because, “I just love how it feels to have the windows open!”

But with the windows open it is somehow hotter inside your home than it is outside which seems impossible because it is approximately 200 degrees outside and global warming will end all of us very soon.

But windows open, AC, it honestly doesn’t matter because it gets so cold at night that either way you’re going to be sleeping with four blankets on and spend the whole night debating if doing permanent damage to your bladder is a better option than getting up to pee and risking hypothermia.

And then, the next morning, you’ll wake up and do it all over again.

Stupid jackets.

Fall is the worst.

Except candy corn. Candy corn is awesome.

Thank you.

What you should be watching, reading, and listening to this week

I watch a lot of TV. I listen to a lot of music, and I read… a lot of things that don’t matter, if we’re being honest.

So I’ve decided to share some of that with you.

Here’s my weekly look at things you should be watching, reading, and listening to right now.

You should be watching Only Murders In The Building

Hulu’s new whodunit series, Only Murders In The Building, feels like a classic 60s detective show, but much brighter and modernized for the 21st century. It’s honestly like nothing else I’ve seen on TV today.

In a semi-swanky New York City apartment building, two older men, played by Steve Martin and Martin Short, and a young woman, played by Selena Gomez, find they have one thing in common with each other and about 50 million other people in America – they’re obsessed with true crime podcasts.

So when a true crime hits their building, they go from listeners to detectives, trying to piece together clues for the culprit behind the crime.

The show is really well written, but it’s made great because of the cast. Martin and Short of course have a great report, but Gomez slides in perfectly in the trio.

I’ve always really thought Gomez was a great comedic actress, ever since her days on Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place. Not that I don’t enjoy her music, but I’ve preferred her acting, and I’m really happy to see her back in this role, specifically. Her character, Mabel, honestly feels like her WOWP character, Alex Russo, all grown up. She plays the resident millennial among boomers perfectly, with a mix of attitude and reverence to her elders, bringing charm to what could be a stereotypical “rough around the edges” New Yorker.

Hulu has released the first three episodes of OMITB, with new episodes every Tuesday. It’s Knives Out with Steve Martin’s quirkiness and Martin Short’s endless energy. And the twist at the end of the first episode is more than enough to keep you coming back every week.

You should be reading DeuxMoi

Oh my gosh, do not read DeuxMoi. But, read DeuxMoi.

Do I sound super uneducated for suggesting you read an Instagram account rather than a real book? One hundred percent, but honestly, in this short life would you rather slog through another novel or know all the restaurants in this country where celebrities were spotted this week? Anyone who knows me knows which I’m choosing.

DeuxMoi is real life Gossip Girl. It’s an Instagram account that allows people to send in tips, pics, and blind items about the rich and famous. Every Sunday they have “Sunday Spotted,” on their stories, running down all the messages they received about people seeing famous people out in the real world.

Do I need to hear from the friend of Jennifer Aniston’s makeup artist what’s her go-to moisturizer? Yes. Do I need to know what restaurant the cast of Riverdale ate at together last week? Probably not. And there’s a very good chance it wasn’t even them since “Statements made on this account have not been independently confirmed” But it’s still fun, real or not. And it was from DeuxMoi that I learned Channing Tatum is dating Zoe Kravitz, Harry Styles is dating Olivia Wilde, and there is a famous rapper (name redacted) who would cry HARD every time he went to this tipster’s tattoo parlor. It’s a huge time suck but, honestly, I love it.

I also learned on DeuxMoi about a month ago a certain rising A-list popstar would be collabing on a song with this music icon. Anon pls.

You should be listening to Cold Heart (PNAU Remix), by Dua Lipa and Elton John

What rising A-list popstar is collabing with this music icon? Dua Lipa and Elton John (Thanks DeuxMoi!).

Elton John announced this week he will be releasing a new album, The Lockdown Sessions, a 16 song album of all collaborations with legends like Stevie Nicks, Stevie Wonder, and Eddie Vedder, as well as new artists Charlie Puth, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, and Dua Lipa.

The first song, with Ms. Lipa herself, was released last month and it’s just a great summer pop song.

Cold Heart samples Rocket Man as well as three other John songs, with Lipa’s voice fitting perfectly in the new mix. The only thing is, I knew it was Elton John the first time I listened to it, but if I didn’t know that I would not have guessed it’s him. Weirdly, he sounds like Jimmy Fallon putting on a British accent.

But, that doesn’t diminish how cool the song is. Whenever music legends from the 70s and 80s put out new music in their later years it’s typically… not good. That’s mean. It’s good, it’s fine, but it’s just not radio ready or up to the standards of what we expect from those legends. This Elton John song, though, fits perfectly in 2021, and sounds like something you’d hear on any Top 40 station or club today, even if it does sample a 50 year old song.

It also makes me very excited to hear the rest of Elton’s new album. He’s embracing modern electronic music while sticking to what he’s known for. It’s what makes him such a legend.

Olympics Schedule: I’m going to watch everything!

I was supposed to go to the Olympics. I did not go to the Olympics. I won’t bore you, so we’ll just say life and COVID got in the way and that’s that. If I’m being honest I’m still pretty sad and don’t want to talk about it.

But, I’m going to pretend I did go to the Olympics. I’ll be covering the Games from home and posting stories right here. My biggest goal while in Tokyo was to go watch every single sport at least once, so instead I’m going to watch every sport at least once from home, and blog about what I learned about the more obscure sports I’ve rarely or never watched before.

As we get get started on the greatest 17 days of the last five years, I thought I’d plan out what sports happen when so I can make sure I don’t miss any of them, and since the schedule took forever and a day to put together I figured I’d share it here.

There are 41 Olympic sports this year. Watching them all won’t be easy, but it’ll be fun! And, if we’re being honest, it’ll be a lot easier to accomplish from my couch than from Japan.

There are two schedules listed below: one by day, and one by sport. The events listed for each sport are either medal events, big events, or games with USA team sports playing.

The Bachelorette Week 1 Live Blog: We love Greg With The Good Hair

I’ll admit something. I love The Bachelor.

And The Bachelorette. And if we’re being honest, Bachelor In Paradise is my favorite.

For the longest time I only liked watching the Bachelor/ette finales and making snap judgements on the couples in the final episode. But, I would always see people live-tweeting The Bachelor/ette/paradise and wanted to watch. That’s when I saw Peter Weber would be the bachelor last January. I decided to have Peter be my intro into the franchise because… well he’s hot.

But it also took me about half an episode to see that while Pilot Pete was hot, Pilot Pete was also incredibly dumb. Like, dumb dumb. And it was really fun to watch all the women on his season exploit how dumb he was. Like, I thought the lead was supposed to be the one in control but this felt like a total role reversal. From there I was hooked.

I now listen to a couple Bachelor podcasts every week. I found two seasons of BIP to watch over the winter, as well as Kaitlyn Bristow and Ben Higgins’ seasons. It’s a sport to me.

And I was very excited for the start of Katie Thurston’s Bachelorette season this week.

The thing is, though, literally no one else in my life likes The Bachelor franchise. If we’re being honest, everyone in my life either A) thinks the Bachelor is stupid and a waste of time to watch or B) gets very angry at the thought that the show even exists.

So for that reason, since I’m usually always having to share a TV on Monday nights, I’m not able to watch the show as it airs because someone will always say “turn this crap off!” So I much prefer to watch alone without anyone’s judgement.

This kind of stink though because watching alone a day or so after the airing sets me up for spoilers (Every other season I’ve read the spoilers early but I want to watch this one without knowing what happens so DON’T TELL ME ANYTHING!). And it also makes it hard to live tweet. Live tweeting things on TV is my favorite pastime, but it’s kind of pointless if no one else is watching at the same time.

So, I’ve decided this season I will keep a live blog of each Bachelorette episode, running down all the things I would have tweeted if the people I share a TV with didn’t suck.

Here. We. Go.

– Katie starts with the classic “I’ve never dated this many guys at once” line that every lead is probably contractually obligated to say. And my question is, why? If you’re in the real world and you have dated 30 people at once I need to know what special “free time” pill you take because that sounds exhausting and like do you not have a job?

– Also, if you’re a normie who has dated 30 people at once, I feel like you’re not going to go on a TV show that prides itself in ending in an engagement. Could be wrong.

– What color is Katie’s dress? Everyone says it’s red but to me it looks coral as heck.

– This is a quarantine season again with everything taking place at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. One may says of the resort: “It’s just a place that fosters love.” Yep, cause when I think of the most romantic places on earth, the first one that comes to mind is within an hour’s drive of Area 51.

– I’m sorry, is this man kissing his grandma who is sitting on a Chicago Cubs blanket??? With a poster of Wrigley Field in the background??? SHUT IT DOWN! We have winner! He’s my favorite.

– stoppppppp it! Look at that hair! Greg! Greg With The Good Hair!

I mean, who among us didn’t make a pillow person to keep us company during quarantine last year?

– This season is so much more lighthearted and fun with Tayshia and Kaitlyn as hosts. I didn’t understand Chris Harrison. Maybe it’s because I started watching late, but he was too old and he didn’t seem like he enjoyed being there at all. Just a grumpy old man who came out every once in a while to collect his checks. I’m very glad he’s gone.

– Also, my favorite thing so far is T&K are watching from the window, and Katie will periodically turn to give them a thumbs up or a smile. It’s like when seniors give a freshman a makeover and watch as she tries to talk to football players in the cafeteria. It’s just the cutest thing.

– Sir…who dressed you? Did you shrink your pants and were unable to get a new pair during quarantine because that’s the only excuse for this.

– This man gave Katie a watch and said it was an heirloom that’s been in his family for 200 years, then says “no I’m just kidding I got this at the airport.” I saw that coming and I still loved it. Too bad he ruined the punchline by adding something about time is precious who cares.

– A truck pulls up and Tre does the whole fake-a-roo by actually being in a ball pit that was put in the bed. I didn’t understand at first but it was quite adorable.

– First crop of men – very good looking. Very charming. I think these are going to be the front runners except for too-short-pants man who should go home immediately and find clothes that fit.

– Greg with the good hair is in this second limo! Forget what I previously said about the frontrunners.

– Is this the good hair limo?

– Good Hair Gabriel proceeds to hug Katie but like in a “take a deep breath feel our chakras” kind of way. If a guy did that to me I would assume he does Yoga which is an instant no in my book. So Good Hair Gabe isn’t doing it for me.

– John looks like he could have played a boyfriend on a Disney Channel show.

– Landon looks like he was the villain on that show.

– Why are these entrances so boring? Do you people know anything about Katie? She’s Katie Thurston! She had one of the most iconic limo exits of all time! You can’t win her love with a simple hug and a “happy to be here.” Effort!

– Unless you’re Greg With The Good Hair.

– Andrew comes out of the limo talking in a fake British accent, and finally we have a good exit! It was made even better by the fact he added the fancy pants car with it. It was charming and funny and Andrew now joins the favorites crop.

– The third crop of men is the comedians – and not good ones. Puns like bringing a baseball glove to “catch feelings,” a fish cause he’s “a catch.” A man even had the audacity to pull underwear out of his britches and say he “wants to be brief.” Like, come on. Not good yall. This is Katie for crying out loud. I’m never opposed to puns but make them good ones.

– A man is being wheeled in in a giant present. I have a feeling this present will be very anticlimactic.

– Also a missed opportunity for the present man to not have the bottom of the box open so he could move the box with his feet like the Flintstones.

– Okay, is it just me or do 90% of these guys look exactly the same? Katie said “why are they all so hot?” Maybe because they all have the same face and hair. If one of these guys murdered a family member of mine there’s no way I could pull them out of a police lineup.

– Except Greg With The Good Hair.

– Cody brought a blow up doll. You knew it was coming after Katie’s limo exit gift to Matt James, but this guy was trying too hard.

– Oh good the fourth crop is the sexual innuendo crop. Meh.

– Quartney with the Q is quite good though.

– Cat man Conner. This man steps out of the limo in a full on cat costume and she liked that??? Like, I love my cats more than basically any person I’ve ever met but if a man showed up to meet me with PAINTED ON WHISKERS and fake paws on his hands I’m purrrrrrty sure I would have him get back in the limo and just head back home.

– That’s all the men. I expected better exits, but there were some standouts. Not-British Andrew wins.

– Katie just mentioned they quarantined for two weeks. Wasn’t this filmed in like March? They didn’t get everyone a vaccine before showing up?

– Greg! Greg Greg we stan Greg! Greg With The Good Hair gives Katie a necklace made by his 3-year-old niece and the entire viewing audience swoons. He said “It’s not actually gold, it’s actually pasta.” He’s the sweetest thing we must protect Greg AT. ALL. COSTS!!!

– I had to take a half time break. I have a job I pretend to do sometimes.

– I Love Tre. And I’ll tell you why I love Tre – Tre brought a homemade ball pit to Night 1, which is cute as heck. But I really love Tre because Tre asked Katie her middle name. The thing about The Bachelor I never understood is it seems like all the conversations they have are so deep and wordy like “I’m looking for a guy with unconditional strength and forgivingness” or whatever. They never actually ask questions to get to know the person. How many people who win The Bachlor/ette/in Paradise actually know basic things like what the other person’s favorite movie is? Tre seemed actually interested in knowing Katie… also he asked her her middle name while they sitting were in ball pit in the back of a pickup truck. Cutest first date ever.

– Karl is a motivational speaker. I don’t trust him. I don’t trust anyone whose occupation is motivational speaker sir you can’t tell me what to do!

– Just as I suspected – guy in the box was anything but a gift. Nothing special about him.

– Greg with the Good Hair gets the first impression rose! We stan Greg With The Good Hair! He gives me major Joseph Gordon Levitt in Ten Things I Hate About You vibes. I love it but that makes me very scared for him too.

– My final thought is I’m very glad she sent the RV man home. He spent all that time bringing his RV to New Mexico and didn’t even have the decency to clean it first? This is Katie Thurston, dude, show some respect!

– My final four predictions – Connor the Cat Man (ugh…), Greg with the Good Hair, Disney Channel John, and Blake Moynes

Blake Moynes and Katie had some flirtiness on Instagram right after Matt’s season ended, so whenever he shows up I have a feeling it’ll be for a while.

I’ll be back next week at some time after Monday whenever I get a chance to watch the episode. Thanks for reading!
