Do You Like Watching a Sitcom at 9? And Not Getting Caught in the Rain?

Should we ask people questions? Is that a good quality to have? Do some of us have the ability to read each other’s minds? Is the “Piña Colada” song weirdly catchy? Isn’t Thursday a great day to relax, laugh and realize the weekend is almost here?

Yes.

When does cop sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ starring funnyman Andy Samberg (sans bonkers wig) make its network comeback since being canceled at Fox?

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET. on NBC.

Just watch the show and escape.

P.S. I went to cakedonalds.com. You should too.

Happy Monday!

If you don’t dream big, then your dreams will be medium or regular-sized.

Does that make sense? Well, it makes as much sense as…

The lesson?

Start dreaming big today, preferably like the Bruce Willis character in ‘Die Hard’ or Arnold Schwarzenegger in his classic action films, or like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson trying to imitate Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger with obvious remakes of old favorites.

AND also start and/or continue watching the new season of the funny cop sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ on Thursday, January 10 at–you guessed it–9 p.m. as it heroicly jumps to its new home on NBC with star Andy Samberg by its side.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

To enjoy the simpler things in life, one friend at a time…

Technology, regardless of its wireless capabilities, is tethered to us in ways that far exceed any normally perceived relationship between person and machine. This seemingly unrivaled dedication extends for all hours of the day and night, all occasions and all cognitive curiosities. Much like the glow of a smartphone, tablet or computer, technology’s light burns ever-so-brightly as it becomes a legitimate chore to resist its attractive intrigue and promise of brand new information through the evolving medium of social media.

Unless your name is Andy Samberg, apparently.

Helping someone out with settings on a computer is like helping someone move:

A true friend.

Happy Monday!

Saturday Night Live has been providing late night sketches with some of the biggest names in comedy beginning with its very first cast back in 1975. Whether cast members and/or writers stayed for one season, seven or more, or if comedy greats today auditioned but didn’t make the cut, last night’s celebration at Studio 8H was an iconic moment for comedy. There was a history of SNL rap by the fan-favorite Fallon-Timberlake bromance, Steve Martin (need I say more?), a Jeopardy game with perfect categories for Sean Connery to mispronounce, a Californians sketch with a vintage mile-high goodbye, musical melodies from unforgettable duos, classic fake commercials, before unseen audition tapes, an In Memoriam remembering past giants, including with the very much alive and well Jon Lovitz sitting stunned in the audience, the return from one of its greats, a Q&A about nothing, a Wayne’s World episode 40 years in the making, cameos galore and countless clips from our favorite skits.

One of the best parts about live television (and SNL in particular) is waiting for comedic professionals to break character. In so many situations, when the actors and actresses start laughing, that actually makes the skit so much more hilarious and memorable. Fortunately, there’s a special digital short for that:

Once again, let’s not forget to give another standing ovation to the man who envisioned it all 40 years ago and who has discovered and launched some of the best careers in comedy: Lorne Michaels.

Live from New York, it will always be Saturday Night!
