>Bryan called and invited Christian & me to see the taping of SNL. He wrote the opening sketch and would we like to see it? Catherine Zeta Jones will be there. But Christian was in Birmingham dealing with an irate drunken Marine so we opted to save it for another time. Being how the show changes from Friday to Saturday’s rehearsal to the actual taping, we weren’t sure if his sketch still made it on air and, if so, that it was still the opening spot. Indeed it was.
Congratulations to him on getting the prime sketch. Apparently the slot usually goes to a senior writer and Bryan was just hired this season.
Even better news: Horatio Sanz was yanked from the Weekend Update!
