    That's exciting!

    By the way, I'm really sorry about my information being not true. Apparently there is a 4 week break coming up! Apologies!

    I made my prediction in this forum four months ago. I'm too tired to dig around for it, though.

    Nothing funny. I'm sure of it!

    Also, according to that link, Abby and Michaela aren't featured players, when Moynihan and Casey are?

    Mike and Abby only appeared in two episodes with Amy. Odds are they're including actors that appeared in sketches with the "Parks and Recreation" star.

    But the Effron and Rock episodes are listed too. Are Abby and Michaela repertory players there?

    Abby and Michaela started on the Paul Rudd episode. Will this special be airing in primetime? My sister is getting married on the 18th and I get to be part of the wedding party, I'll probably tape it regardless, but I'm wondering what time it will be on.

    Did anyone else notice that they have the Tracy Morgan episode scheduled for May 2nd?? I thought that week was supposed to have a live episode.

    I'm about 60% sure the season finale will be on the 16th, not the 9th. If that's the case, I'll lock up the 5/2 EDT thread.

    Maybe you can just change the date in that thread. I honestly think that May 16 was a more appropriate time to have a season finale of a show anyway

    I already bought The Best of Amy Poehler at Best Buy. It's a couple of blank DVDs.

    Tried to put the episodes when I knew them. Most of the time, the host of the episode was in the sketch.

    A Nonpartisan Message from Sarah Palin & Hillary Clinton (Michael Phelps/Lil' Wayne)
    Bronx Beat (Jake Gyllenhaal/The Shins)
    Valtrex commercial parody (Alec Baldwin/Christina Aguilera)
    Kaitlin and Rick (Paul Giamatti/Ludacris & Sum 41)
    Digital Short: Body Fuzion (Drew Barrymore/Lily Allen)
    The Not So Great Adventures of the Down and Out Dollar (Topher Grace/The Killers)
    The Dakota Fanning Show (Drew Barrymore/Lily Allen)
    Weekend Update montage (Fey/Poehler title opening; Really?!? segment about AIG; ends with her goodbye from Hugh Laurie/Kanye West)
    Amy Loves Justin (the first Justin Timberlake episode)
    Turlington's Lower Back Tattoo Remover commercial parody (Lindsay Lohan/Usher)
    The Bush Twins (the secret twins language sketch; Paul Giamatti/Ludacris & Sum 41)
    I'm No Angel (pregnant Amy at a southern bar; Josh Brolin/Adele)

    Final montage:
    Monologue from Scarlett Johanssen/Bjork
    Sharon Osbourne on Celebrity Jeopardy
    Michael Jackson on a Neverland coaster with lawyers
    Madonna auditioning on American Idol
    The real Hillary Clinton meets her impression
    Amber the One-Legged Hypoglycemic on Rock of Love
    Her impression in the Christopher Walken family reunion sketch
    Avril Lavigne impression on Fey/Fallon-era Weekend Update
    Kelly on Regis and Kelly
    Skipper, Barbie's mother, with Britney Spears
    Senator Barbara Boxer makes a lie volcano
    Paula on American Idol
    Kim Jong-Il on Hugo Chavez' roundtable talk show
    Appalachian Emergency Room with Neil Young
    That reality show winner who spouts catchphrases like "tranny" and "hot mess" giving Casey Wilson fashion advice
    Nancy Grace ("I intended for my hair to be this shape")
    Dorothy from Wizard of Oz rips off a Lollipop Guild member's legs from under the house
    Sharon Stone helping build a house in New Orleans, being interviewed by Anderson Cooper (Steve Carell/Kanye West)

    My DVR cut off halfway through that last clip, so there's probably more.

    The reality show winner was Christian Soriano from "Project Runway."

    Well, I was right about "Down and Out Dollar," wasn't I? Should I do the "I told you so" dance?

    I'm pretty sure that's it. I think after the Anderson Cooper all there was was back to the Amy/Scarlett monologue singing the end of a song, and Scarlett saying "We've Got A Great Show! Death Cab for Cutie is here!" There might have been something between that, though.

    My local provider cut out before the Sarah Palin rap finished.

    I didn't watch it. Had no interest too. Didn't think it'd be that great. I decided on a movie instead. And I see that I amde the right choice.

    I guess they wanted to show her "I'm still versatile while pregnant" side, hence the Josh Brolin sketch. But, that sketch was nothing to remember in the first place. I felt like something was missing... I don't know if it was a character, impression, or what...
