Daily Rehearsal: Paul Brittain is not long for SNL
2. Legally Blonde has spurred some choice headlines and surprising reviews. For instance, "'Legally Blonde' pretty in a pretty darn good production" (Sun-Times) and "'Blonde' will, like, totally grow on you" (Tribune). It's at the Marriott through April 1.
3. Kathy Griffin returned to Chicago, and spoke about it. "This city is still considered to be stomping grounds for Oprah Winfrey, so she spoke of Winfrey growing into messiah status and being bored with her new Next Chapter," writes Jerry Nunn in the Windy City Times. "Griffin appeared earlier in the day on the OWN Network for The Rosie Show so maybe the big O will be watching her next time." Other than that, there were many jokes about Anderson Cooper (she read his texts aloud!) and the Kardashians.
5. This week is the week that Keegan and Peele do press for their new show Key & Peele that premieres on Comedy Central tonight. Read this interview with them on Vulture, listen to them on Morning Edition, and see them mentioned in this New York Times article. And watch the clip below that lots of people seem to like.
