If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/15/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

snl40thspecialsmallLive from New York, it’s…err…Sunday Night! Tonight, NBC celebrates four decades of Saturday Night Live with a huge, live SNL 40th Anniversary Special. There have been so many great sketches and characters over the years, and the series has launched the film and TV careers of so many hilarious men and women. Dozens of former cast members and guests will return for tonight’s special—thirty or so have already been confirmed, with likely even more celebs making surprise appearances. The confirmed former guests include Justin Timberlake, Emma Stone, Derek Jeter, Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Melissa McCarthy, Robert De Niro, Paul Simon, Jerry Seinfeld, Jack Nicholson, Peyton Manning, Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin, Taylor Swift, Christopher Walken, Tom Hanks, and Betty White. And the confirmed former cast members include Jimmy Fallon, Chevy Chase, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Molly Shannon, Steve Martin, Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Amy Poehler, Dana Carvey, Kristen Wiig, Dan Akroyd, Chris Rock, Garrett Morris, Andy Samberg, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short, Bill Murray, and Sara Silverman.

With so many talented folks involved, it should be one amazing show! Will the special feature the returning folks doing the same characters and routines that made them famous? Or will they just take advantage of this amazing cast and come up with all new material? Or will they find a way to mash up the SNL world, bringing old and new characters together into fun new scenarios? And will there be some sort of tribute to cast members who are no longer with us, like John Belushi, Phil Hartman, Chris Farley, and Gilda Radner?

The night kicks off at 7/6c with a 1-hour red carpet special, followed by a three-and-a-half-hour show! I feel bad for the West Coast, who will need to try to avoid the live tweets and spoilers!

While I’m watching 4.5 hours of SNL, I’ll also be recording CSI, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Worst Cooks in America, The Walking Dead, Togetherness, Looking, Shameless, and Episodes.
