Happy Monday!

From beginning to end, Adam Sandler gave comedy fans a memorable performance as host of ‘Saturday Night Live.’

‘SNL’ great Adam Sandler hosted his former show for the first time this weekend. There were many, many ways — and by this, I mean characters — the writers and cast could have approached his long-awaited, triumphant return. Surprisingly, there weren’t too many throwbacks to characters from Adam Sandler’s glory days at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. But make no mistake, the return of Opera Man at Weekend Update, for instance, was funny in ways that only the Sandman could deliver.

From singing his opening monologue…

to singing as the iconic Opera Man…

and his emotional acoustic tribute to close the show…

Adam Sandler proved why he’s a still such a fan favorite after all of the years as he combines humor with heart in pointed yet good-natured punchlines.

And while NBC’s timing and rationale for Adam Sandler’s firing (along with Chris Farley and Chris Rock) still makes absolutely no sense, NBC’s timing and rationale for bringing Adam Sandler back to ‘SNL’ — sparked by the success of his Netflix stand-up special titled ‘Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh’ — were pitch-perfect.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday!

A “Happy Monday!” blog post of Jimmy’s Daily Planet will help you watch the brand new trailer for the forthcoming Disney live-action film ‘Mary Poppins Returns.’

This looks like a great family movie to see with my young nieces. And I’ll be sure to play my part and feed them a bag of Skittles a spoonful of sugar before returning them to their parents because, well, that’s what good uncles do!

‘Mary Poppins Returns’ to movie theaters on December 19.

The Stars Are Here

Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, and Dave Chappelle.

Yes, yes and yes.

The brand new trailer for the remake of ‘A Star is Born,’ directed by lead actor Bradley Cooper, sparks a few thoughts:

  • When does Bradley Cooper’s country album come out?
  • Dave Chappelle can do anything.
  • The pieces are in place for a great film. Please don’t blow it.

While finely-crafted movie trailers can be deceiving, the initial review of the aforementioned first trailer is that the title should be adjusted to ‘The Stars Are Here.’

The show starts on October 5.

Perfect Friends

Will Smith + Jimmy Fallon in a sing-along =

This Tonight Show segment just took “Flashback Friday” to the next-level. And these two buddies may have inadvertently created a new sitcom in a matter of minutes by simply singing together:

Perfect Friends.

Thankfully, Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon aren’t strangers. If they were, the “History of TV Theme Songs” would have never happened.

But they are friends, pals, and even a confidant when needed.
