That's a paywall. Here's another article without one. Looks fine to me. The huge cast was abnormal and they're just trying to get back to normal. The long commercial breaks also means less airtime for everyone than in the past. Small casts is what makes stars.

In that interview, Michaels basically confirms what I had already suspected. They brought in new cast members to replace the ones who were going to leave over the last couple of years, but because COVID messed up production schedules, those cast members ended up not leaving, so the cast was oversized last year. Now, this year it's balancing out and we're seeing a higher number of departures than usual.

Don't know who Miles Teller is. Is he by chance related to Raymond?
For anybody who has not watched it I HIGLY recommend "The Offer" on Paramount Plus.

It's a true story about the making of the Godfather and how many times it could have failed.
Miles Teller plays the producer who had to jump through many hoops to get the movie made. The real Al Ruddy that Miles played was a producer on the film.

Miles Teller was also the second-billed star (to Tom Cruise) in this year's highest-grossing movie (Top Gun). And he was the lead in a movie nominated for Best Picture (Whiplash) and for which J.K. Simmons won an Oscar terrorizing poor Miles.

Another who had no idea who Miles Teller is. Well, actually, seeing the name, I thought he was one of that comedy/magic pair who play LV in one of the casinos. A big guy and a little guy. The little guy doesn't talk. I think that adequately describes to whom I refer. :D

Anyway - D'oh!

Yeah, I asked above if he was related. The little guy's name is Raymond Teller but he had it legally changed to just "Teller".

When I heard that he was hosting, I had no idea who he was, but when I saw him, I immediately knew him as this character. The show was terrific and I'm with you, I highly recommend it. Another show that I was surprised to see no Emmy noms for, as I thought it was one of the best of the season. But the Emmys rarely line up with what I think, so whatever. Anyway, I like him.

Oh, there wasn't one.

That gives me a lot of time tonight for other shows.

Danny Aiello was really good in the one I did see. Tim Meadows insulted him and Coolio and I thought he was going to get beat up. And it was obvious I could skip over the "music", though Aiello did a good song at the beginning.

It's kind of obvious something got left out when Aiello said, "Once again, Coolio."

Anybody know why all the live shows were on hiatus this last week? All the late night shows including SNL were off, Maher, and Oliver are off, and even some of the news people on MSNBC had the week off.
There are no holidays that I know of.

It just worked out that way. It was time for SNL's usual break after a number shows in a row. The same with the late night shows. They all seem to take the same week off after 3 or 4 weeks in a row of producing new shows. A couple times a year they'll take 2 weeks off.
