Dana Carvey hosted SNL this weekend. I think he did, although I could have just stepped into a halfway entertaining time machine and emerged in a bygone era of late night television. Mike Myers joined Carvey for the show’s cold open, a new(!) episode of Aurora, Illinois’ favorite public access show, “Wayne’s World.” The duo, looking every bit the same as the last time we saw them, recited their same old jokes in their same exact set. Seriously, do they have all the old sets and props in storage? Have they preserved Rob Schneider‘s Makin’ Copies-guys’ Xerox machine somewhere? Stupid question, it’s clearly in the Smithsonian. The duo ran down their picks for the upcoming Academy Awards, and made numerous dick jokes about Winter’s Bone, or as is Myers’ M.O., the same Winter’s Bone joke numerous times. The whole sketch, and episode, was mildly comforting and at the same time irritating, much like a childhood security blanket that’s gotten scratchy or threadbare from being washed too many times. It was fun to see that the jokes, sets, characters, and performers hadn’t changed a bit in 20 years, but that’s also what made it kind of a downer. (Slashfilm)

Staring and staring and staring. And she knows he's staring.

Watching Jesse Eisenberg‘s interview on Conan made me realize that playing awkward, darkly weird Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network may not have been that much of a stretch. Now he’s getting ready to host Saturday Night Live on January 29th. I’m imagining the very end, where everybody hugs each other, and Eisenberg refuses to be touched. He just keeps staring at Abby Elliot. Staring and staring and staring. And she knows he’s staring. So Abby decides to avoid him at the wrap party afterwards. He goes home early and punches a framed Zombieland poster on the wall. “What’s WRONG with me?!”

Of course, if that were the case, his show would still be a lot better than the January Jones episode.

Meanwhile, Dana Carvey will return to 30 Rockefeller Plaza on February 5th, which brings up an interesting question: really?

I know he’s an SNL legend, and Church Lady can (and should) kick all of Kristen Wiig‘s running characters’ asses, but usually hosts have something to promote or have been working recently. Eh, y’know, screw it. If Mike Myers is there and the whole episode is a giant Wayne’s World reunion, then I say, “party on, Dana Carvey!” *Plays Air Guitar* (TV Squad)
