Why does Amy with dark hair make me uncomfortable?


Yep, it really happened.

On Wednesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Amy Poehler reunited with former “Weekend Update” co-anchor Meyers for a fresh installment of their signature SNL bit ‘Really!?!’

The SNL vets were inspired to dust off their tag-team rant by Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit, who stirred a tempest this week when he tweeted that “women’s sports in general” are “not worth watching.” Benoit has since apologized for his outburst, but that didn’t stop Poehler and Meyers from having a little fun at his expense.

Nostalgia, TV Fodder

Remember this? It’s ok if you don’t – it wasn’t on air very long. But it certainly cemented its status in my mind in that, to me, it perfectly epitomized the cheesey valour that Fox had going on in the early 90’s. It was the perfect blend of 90210 superficiality with a tinge of Melrose absurdity. TV needs more of this these days. I’m all for intellectually stimulating cinematic episodes, but sometimes you have to give the mind a break, ya know?
