Ugh it kinda sucks how Bill gets Kanye West for his goodbye show while Kristen got Mick Jagger, Arcade Fire and Dave Grohl like which of Kanye’s songs is an appropriate goodbye song? And don’t even tell me he doesn’t need a goodbye song! Let’s hope for some cameos…
It has been made very clear, sadly, that NBC has turned down John Mulaney’s sitcom, appropriately titled “Mulaney”. Despite this, he should still have the opportunity to be seen on the small screen. One reason is Lorne Michaels, the creator of SNL, was also behind “Mulaney” as executive producer. He clearly believes John can make it as an actor on television or else he would’ve never aligned himself to the project. In addition, John has been a writer at SNL since 2008, and has even made appearances on Weekend Update, so he’s already familiar with the current cast, one of which, Nasim Pedrad, starred alongside him in the pilot. Speaking of Weekend Update, with Seth Meyers most likely taking over for Late Night in a few months, John could always take over, with this not being the first time an SNL writer also hosted the news segment, with Tina Fey doing so for six years. Lastly, NBC has a deal with the cast members where after a certain amount of time, the network has the ability to place them in one of their sitcoms, potentially giving Mulaney a second chance at having his own sitcom. John is technically still at SNL, writing for the latest episode with Zach Galifianakis. And hopefully, he can continue his relationship with the show, but this time on screen, like he actually wanted to when he first auditioned for it.
NBC recently turned down a sitcom from a hilarious comedian who has many fans and deserves a show. Please reblog this in order to make them reconsider possibly.
NBC really needs to give up on Up All Night at this point. If they want a multi-camera Lorne Michaels comedy so bad then they should just pick up Mulaney’s show to series
