I noticed Dustin didn’t sum up SNL this weekend. There’s a very simple reason for that. Justin Bieber was on “Saturday Night Live” and the Church Lady danced with him. Remember when Dana Carvey was funny? Maybe it’s just nostalgia for a simpler time, when the 49ers didn’t make me cry, those lofty days before the Internet gave us unlimited communication and Canadian auto tuned androids, but I swear that Carvey had the ability to be mildly subversive at some point.
Just about every genre fan I know of the proper persuasion has a thing for James Marsters. It has something to do with abs, cheekbones, leather coats, and a propensity for flirting with absolutely anyone else (of any species) that shares the screen with him. Well, too bad, he just got married. Spike is off the market. I bet it was that gorgeous poodle from “Torchwood” that finally landed a ring.

Oh, and speaking of “Torchwood,” Russell T Davies is about done with science fiction. Says he:
It’s interesting to see how long I can stay in a science fiction world. Personally I think I’m coming to the end of it now, and I’ve saved the world and blown up the world too many times. … It’s time to write something just where people are talking in kitchens after this for me.
I totally can understand that. It’s like how sometimes you get tired of reading novels and so you read the phone book instead. Or when sex becomes boring and so you just start collecting hummel figures instead. Totally understandable.
Finally, just to ensure that you have absolutely no faith left in the universe, CBS just picked up a “comedy” pilot written by, produced by, and starring Rob Schneider. Schneider marries into “a tight-knit Mexican-American family” and I’m sure hilarious hijinks ensue.
And remember, if you’re starting to question your commitment to Sparkle Motion and looking up noose-tying tutorials on Google, it could always be worse. You could have paid $1500 for a Prince pre-Super Bowl concert that just got canceled because the organizers forgot to buy plane tickets for Prince to get there.
