Craig's Saturday mention

  1. A family's ultra smart son wants to be a talk show host. The kid did a Jay Walking sketch and his band is his sister on violin. His side kick is his drunk uncle.

  7. SNL's miserable attempt at a dig is merely because Fallon is an alumnus. Way to show your Sour Grapes, there, NBC. That'll garner ratings...*eyeroll* Though I'm surprised that Hulu hasn't swept in and banned the clip from youtube, since they do that with all things NBC, thus further endearing themselves to the public...

  8. The clip isn't funny, not because they actually mentioned Craig (seriously, it's a compliment that SNL is mentioning him, as it is a status symbol of pop culture). The clip isn't funny simply because it's not funny.

  10. Keep in mind this is a sketch that aired next to last on SNL which is traditionally when the worst sketches of the night air. Also, the Craig mention was not the point of the sketch. The point of the sketch (that I will admit is mostly unfunny) is that the kid was originally was pushed to be a doctor by his father until the father found out that Letterman makes $30 million a year. The kid is trying to please his/her father like any other kid of an overbearing father who wants greatness from his child. Problem is its been done before.

  11. Not even sure I got the joke... is it supposed to be such common knowledge that the Friday Craig shows are taped on Thursday that most people would know it? Doesn't Letterman do the same thing?

    A previous poster mentioned Jimmy Fallon, and it seems like a Fallon joke would have been funnier, as it would have been at least a "wink-wink we're supposed to be fictional characters but we're actually his former colleagues" kind of gag.

  12. Hm, this sketch is kind of a rip-off of the Kumars at No. 42... It was a British talk show with the same concept, except they kept improvising in character for half an hour. Wasn't very funny either.

    Agree with Melissa though. Craig getting mentioned on SNL means that he's on the pop culture map, which is a good thing.
