    I got in early, Monday, so I could write. It was a massive undertaking, a 3 hour show. People were exhausted.

    I saw Lorne, thanked him, congratulated him, and shook his hand as Canadians do. He accepted. Got that out of the way early.

    It was what it was, though, and what it was to be. How could it be saved from becoming an episode of copycats?

    Higgins had the idea. A video daily double.

    The category would be potent potables, a common one on Jeopardy, but one we somehow had never done.

    And the idea was that it would be a bar set. And the idea was that Cosby would be mixing a drink in a video that was taped 6 months ago.

    The iconic doors would open and on to home base would step Eddie Murphy. The audience would know what to do.

    When he speaks, he is Cosby. Eddie Murphy doing a perfect Cosby impression. The audience does not let him finish. The sketch ends.

    So, the talks were underway. "Brett says Eddie doesn't feel comfortable"

    Norm must be high if he thought Eddie would ever have the balls to do something funny again which is a shame because it would of been the biggest talking point of the show

    Jim Downey, the best writer who ever touched pen to paper, showed up Wednesday, with a copy of Rolling Stone in his fist.

    The magazine had listed all 141 sat members and raked them, best to worst.

    Guess where you ranked", he laughed and I knew from the laugh it was low. "As long as I beat…."and I mentioned a girl who lasted 4 episodes

    The joke was that I really hoped I would beat a girl who nobody had ever heard of. The bigger joke is that I hadn't.

    He doesn't deserve to be named and his book was sentimental nonsense meant to look like something Dave Eggers would write.

    The idea of jokes approved by a writer the caliber of Jim Downey being called lame by some sappy "writer" was a great joke.

    Who was in charge of Update, i asked and eyes would get shifty. Was it the guy that wrote the Rolling Stone thing?

    :jj:
