The Rock Chalkboard

A needlessly early look at the 2024 Kansas football roster - KU Sports
The Kansas football roster is far from finalized, particularly after the recent departures of players like Austin Booker and Ar’maj Reed-Adams created unanticipated needs, but the team signed its 17-man freshman class out of high school on Dec. 20 and the early transfer window is now nearing its end.

Jordan Klepper and Roy Wood Jr. Talk ‘Daily Show’ Drama and 2024 Tour
“Anytime I get to work with Jordan Klepper is generally a good time, with the exception of the the anti-gay barbecue food truck in North Carolina,” Wood says, referring to another Daily Show bit that found them testing the limits of a state law that said businesses could deny service to customers based on their sexual identity. “That was one of those, ‘Oh, shit, I think I’m going to get shot’ moments,” Wood recalls, a feeling that Klepper—and anyone who spends time with him on the road—has become accustomed to in recent years.

A Radical Fix for ‘Saturday Night Live’ in 2024 |
Cracked has been suggesting for a while that the cast of Saturday Night Live is too big. This year’s roster has actually downsized from its post-COVID peak, but there are still 17 cast members on this season’s show, 20 if you count the boys in Please Don’t Destry (and why wouldn’t we since they’re on nearly every week). Compare that number with the seven Not Ready for Prime Time Players in the show’s original group. SNL is still a 90-minute show, but now there are nearly three times as many funny people vying for air time. Plus, my pleas to Lorne Michaels to fire half the cast have fallen on deaf ears.
