Mickey Kaus asks a good question:
Why watch Saturday Night Live in L.A. when the twitters from back East say it's weak? Does that mean TV shows now have a New York problem like movies have a Friday problem? Movies: If twitterers don't like on Friday, it will die on Saturday. TV: If the East doesn't like it, it will die in West? Just asking! Not my industry. ... 1:45 A.M.
Incidentally, we saw The Informant, which has had surprisingly weak box office. Both Peter and I gave it two thumbs up--though Mark Whitacre's bumbling was at times almost too painful to watch. The movie was both funny in many parts, and well structured, which is not a combination that's really all that common. But apparently, people don't want to see whistleblower comedies . . .
