It Wouldn’t Be Top Chef Without Fauxhawks
It looks like Top Chef is officially an American cultural phenomenon, as the show was parodied on SNL for the first time this weekend, complete with a dead-on Padma Lakshmi impression and a cameo from Christopher “More Cowbell” Walken.
And because nothing is more American than watching both your television and computer screens at the same time, check back into ES tonight for Live Blogging Top Chef, with this week’s host, Liza.

Has Walken ever made it through even a single line on SNL without his eyes glued to the cue cards?
He is consistently in some of the funniest sketches, but I have the hardest time watching him because it’s so obvious he’s reading each line as it comes.
yeah, he’s a great personality, but every line is the same monotone, tough guy New Yorker voice – although I guess that’s his trademark…I once saw him do a Chekhov play – still kept the New York accent though.
Q – what’s SNL like now a days? I haven’t watched in a while. Is it tivo worthy?
def not tivo worthy? same as ever, one or two good skits per week, except now you can just find those ones on YouTube
That’s about right.
Generally speaking, if there’s an “SNL Digital Short,” it’s worth watching. That’s the Andy Samberg-Jason Sudeikis category of sketches like “D*ck in a Box” and “Iran So Far” that end up getting sent around.
Other than that, it’s still pretty much a crapshoot.
do you know if they sell complete seasons of SNL – the the early 90s? I have best ofs, but I would love to watch full episodes and full seasons.
do you get cable television? I’m pretty sure they’re on five channels 24 times a day
wow, i really need to get into freelancing, huh
