By petejayhawk on The Lost Roles of Gilda Radner

The male performers you're saying Gilda Radner influenced aren't "guys." It's sexist and patronizing for you to refer to men that way.

I love Community, but should it be there ahead of, say, Arrested Development or Seinfeld? NO WAY! What were you voters thinking?

@Joshua Kurp If Community beats Arrested Development I may shut the site down.

By Melanie Chartoff on Fridays: The SNL Ripoff That Nearly Surpassed the Original

Love an overview that helps me understand the underpinnings of my own past. Dick Ebersol courted me for SNL , but I was too burned out on the consuming, chauvinistic, coked up comedy climate of late nite where the aggression required to get an idea on was life threatening. I was proud of much of the innovation, ashamed of the desperation, and an adoring fan of every member of Friday's iconoclastic cast and staff. Hope Larry lets the DVDs out before all the fans who still write me are dead.

Not sure why everyone's so sore about these great Ricky Gervais-being-a-pain blurbs. I love them. NEVER STOP. Never stop until Ricky gervais stops acting so foolish.

By chris chris on SNL Recap: Daniel Radcliffe, Timid Host on a Ballsy Night

Jeebus Crispus! I don't know who to blame for the wasted use of Jay Pharoah. Why does it seem to be so hard for the writers to just have him do a talk show sketch using one of his dead-on impressions? Is he not a gifted-enough performer to carry it through for 3 minutes? Here are some ideas: How about Will Smith as a motivational coach? Woooh! Or Denzel Washinton fills in for Mike Rowe doing a "Dirty Jobs" type show on BET? (actually, dibs on that one, that's a decent idea ) I feel like this kid could be a breakout star but something is holding him back...

By Erik Voss on Which Comedian Had the Greatest Five-Year Span of Films?

You know, whenever I scroll though the Splitsider headlines on my Reeder, I'll see a particularly cool one and think, "Bet Kurp wrote that one." 9 times out of 10, I'm right. Thanks for the good reads, man.
