Kenan Thompson is having a great year that just keeps getting better. After wrapping up his 19th season on SNL and receiving a Hollywood Star, he will now be hosting the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday, September 12, 2022 on NBC and streaming live on Peacock.
Despite my exhaustive efforts, The Umbrella Academy has not yet returned my calls, emails, tweets, OR messages to join them as a mediocre writer with the ability to comma splice my enemies to death.

On a new episode of Hard NOC Life — which was recorded before the reveal of Brandon Routh as Superman! — Keith and Dominic get excited about all of the Superman, especially the inclusion of Smallville in this fall’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover on The CW.
I’m not here to say why Sandra Oh, the first woman of Asian descent nominated for an Emmy as a leading actress in a drama, should have won and that she was robbed.

Congrats, Claire and thanks for the Sandra shout-out.
