An Unbearably Hot Week That Also Had Comedy In It

By

-South Park’s mid-season finale took aim at itself in a strangely affecting episode.

-Zach Galifianakis talked about the plot of the inevitable Hangover Part III.

-We reviewed all of the self-published novels of John Swartzwelder, the most prolific Simpsons writer ever (59 episodes!).

-The Japanese version of Saturday Night Live debuted, and we took a look at its surreal intro. We also looked at Spain’s version of SNL, which aired on Thursdays for some reason.

-Contrary to what you might have assumed, Bill Murray wanted to be really involved in Garfield 2: A Tale of Two Kitties.

-We looked at the early-career comedies of JJ Abrams.

-Tracy Morgan went off the rails even more than he usually does and unleashed a homophobic rant on an unsuspecting audience.

-We looked at the lost roles of Married… with Children.
