    SNL. Looking forward to see how Brie Larson does on her hosting debut on the show.

    • Also, looking for how cheesy the writers make Brie’s skits. Anybody else disappointed with Party Over Here? I’ve watched all the episodes, and besides the terrific “Choir” skit, most of it has been meh. Expected more from the Lonely Island producers.

    Watched Outlanders this morning ( thank you Starz for the early Saturday availability each week) and it is an amazing episode… I will check out Brie since I’ve loved her work going back to the Tara days and her award winning movie role was amazing. I’ll probably just DVR it and just watch her since the show in general is normally terrible these days..

    The Kentucky Derby, of course! In fact, I’m watching the broadcast now, and I watched the undercard on NBCSN. This is one of my five big days of the year (the others are Preakness Stakes Day, Belmont Stakes Day, and the two days of the Breeder’s Cup).
