Jeers to Big Lake for achieving the impossible: making Chris Parnell unfunny.

During his 1999-2006 tenure at SNL, he was like the second coming of Phil Hartman, a chameleon who held sketches together with dead-on deadpan timing. Parnell finally went viral with the digital short "Lazy Sunday," then exited SNL to explore greener prime time pastures. His outlandish cameos...
Kids in the Hall
Memo to the gods of summer TV: Enough already! These are the dog days of August, I understand that all too well (as I wring out my socks after every muggy walk home from work), but the last thing we need in this summer of original-programming bounty is a pack of actual barking dogs pretending to be comedies.

Two make their bow Tuesday night, with back-to-back episodes challenging you to make it to that second half-hour.
First up: ABC Family's retro snooze Melissa & Joey, or: The Manny. Not Manny as in the wonderfully precocious Manny (Rico Rodriguez) of Modern Family, but male nanny, Who's The Boss? style.
Joey Lawrence fills that role, as "Joe," a down-on-his-luck commodities broker who lost his fortune and family in a financial meltdown. Let me be the first to say: "Whoa." He moves in, platonically, to work ...
Turns out you can go home again—you just might not be welcome there. In the new scripted comedy Big Lake (premiering tonight at 10/9c on Comedy Central), Chris Gethard stars as Josh Franklin, a failed financial whiz kid who flees the big city for his Pennsylvania hometown. But Josh's folks aren't exactly thrilled to see him—especially since he lost their nest egg on failed investments.
"His parents outwardly hate him at this point—they take their aggression out on him, and deservedly so," says Gethard, an accomplished improv comic who landed the role after impressing exec producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay on the set of Ferrell's new comedy The Other Guys...
Upright Citizens Brigade performer Chris Gethard has replaced Jon Heder as the lead in Comedy Central's new sitcom, Big Lake.
Jon Heder exits Comedy Central sitcom

Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Live from New York, it's "Lazy Sunday"!
OK, so it wasn't actually live back in the day, but the Saturday Night Live rap that put Digital Shorts on the map and ushered in the age of viral videos was performed live for the first time on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Skeet Ulrich, Zoe McLellan
Skeet Ulrich, whose Jericho famously managed a (singular) death-row reprieve, is on his way back to CBS as the lead in Back, a drama pilot about a man who returns home to discover he was reported missing eight years earlier, just after Sept. 11. (No, I don't quite get the premise either.)
In other CBS pilot castings, Zoe McLellan (Dirty Sexy Money) has landed a role in ...
This is the first of four specials that Saturday Night Live will be airing on Thursday nights. Rumor has it that at some point, Sarah Palin, will make an appearance as Tina Fey, which, with the two appearing on the same show, may result in the apocalypse. But, in the meantime, we got a special appearance from SNL alum Chris Parnell and a fantastic surprise midway through the first sketch to ask a question: Bill Murray!
Opening Sketch: CNN – The Presidential Debate
Fred Armisen plays Obama, Darrell Hammond plays McCain and Chris Parnell plays Tom Brokaw … and they all nail each one's mannerisms and voice cadences. Well done! "Tom" says the candidates only get 25 seconds to answer one of the "eight least interesting questions" he's picked and they'll only get three second response. Ha! This is clearly playing off the fact that Brokaw was more of a time referee than a moderator at the debate. The candidates can be real windbags, no? And, I say that with patriotic affection. It also tickles my fancy is that Casey Wilson and Bill Hader ask the questions exactly like the deer-caught-in-headlights "folks" who were featured at the debate. Obama answers questions in his staccato signature style, and McCain tries to come off as a bad ass before calling the audience members by the wrong name and walking into Obama's camera frame ...
