TV Junkie: 'Heroes' at Full-Throttle; Mike Myers on Leno; Peet on Conan (he wishes)
A Word or 89(approx):
One thing I didn't mention over the weekend was Sunday's SNL In the '90s because I thought it woudl suck. I was right. First, why did it take them 7 years to come up with this 2 hours of dreck? Second, the equal emphasis of the (pathetic) music acts and the comedy was a mistake - the show is an hour and a half with 2 songs in it, the show is (supposed to be) comedy. A better show could have been done and it could have been done sooner than this.
