Hello, take a gander at that: Things over at Saturday Night Live aren’t altogether mysteriously imbecilic, and it is as yet conceivable to discover has who aren’t union-busting billionaires! Lorne Michaels just must be available to welcoming hosts over from SNL’s greatest rival—however it’s just a “competitor” in the sense that some guy selling hamburgers on the road is contending with McDonald’s.
At any rate, we’re discussing Mad TV, with previous Mad TV cast member Keegan-Michael Key (who evidently proceeded to do an all the more high-profile sketch comedy series after that) being named as the host of the show’s forthcoming May 15 episode close by muuusical visitor Olivia Rodrigo.
Key will not be the first Mad TVer to show up on SNL (Taran Killam was a cast member on both!), however this is as yet a positive development for anybody actually holding onto some sort of Mad TV/SNL rivalry.
On May 22, SNL will get Anya Taylor-Joy and muuusical visitor Lil Nas X. Taylor-Joy presumably never showed up on Mad TV, as she would’ve been 13 or so when it at first went behind closed doors, yet she was in The New Mutants and it was more regrettable than some random episode of Mad TV (which was a fine show, we should be reasonable here). That needs to mean something.
Concerning Lil Nas X, he’s likely large enough now that he could perform twofold responsibility as host and muuusical visitor, correct? As a matter of fact, he may be large sufficient that he could simply have his own show. Who controls the rights to Mad TV nowadays? Lil Nas X, Will Sasso, Michael McDonald, and Nicole Sullivan.
