NBC brings Christmas joy with Young Rock, Kenan and Mr. Mayor

Tonight, starting at 8p, NBC is stirring up the Christmas joy like marshmallows in cocoa with their three sophomore comedies.

Young Rock starts it off at 8p with a different take on A Christmas Carol. Old Rock is filming a Christmas movie, and his young co-stat is just not in the spirit. So to get her there, he tells the story of his past Christmases.

The Rock goes back to when he was 10 years old (Adrian Groulx) to revisit his worst Christmas with his parents (Stacey Leilua and Joseph Lee Anderson) and his grandmother (Ana Tuisila). However, his 15-year-old self (Bradley Constant) goes back five years to tell his past self that his worst Christmas is coming. And he shows him what happened. But then, the 21-year-old DJ (Uli Latukefu) shows them that it gets worst six years from that.

What is the lesson of all of this? You just have to tune in to see in this episode that is no bah humbug.

Then at 8:30p, it is time for a Christmas extravaganza on Kenan. Mika (Kimrie Lewis) is planning a holiday episode of Kenan’s (Thompson) morning show Wake Up, and everything is going wrong.

Kenan is depending on his brother (Chris Redd) to help him out, but Gary abandons him. The keyboardist drops out, so Kenan suggests his father-in-law (Don Johnson). Rick accepts, but he wants to upstage Tami (Taylor Louderman), and she is not having it.

Will the show be naughty or nice? You just have to tune in, or you will get a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking.

Finally, at 9:30p, it LA Christmas Eve, aka December 22nd, on Mr. Mayor. Since everyone is going away for the holidays, they put their trees out on the street. However, the Santa Ana winds are blowing them all over the place. That means it is up to Tommy (Mike Cabellon) to save the day.

Everyone at the Mayor’s office wants to go home, but the Mayor (Ted Danson) won’t let them. That is because his presents for everyone got lost in the mail. That and there is a storm of pine trees wreaking havoc on the city.

What does he do? He hires someone to come in and give them an experience. Mikaela (Vella Lovell) wants to live Love Actually, so she tries to hook Apri (Holly Hunter) up with a stranger in the office. Unfortunately, Apri isn’t having it. Jayden (Bobby Moynihan) has been working on a Christmas Carol for Los Angeles, but he just can’t seem to finish it?

Will everyone have a merry LA Christmas? You just have to watch this laugh-inducing episode to find out.

Along with those three episodes, we will be getting sneak peeks of their two new comedies American Auto on December 13th after The Voice finale, and then on the next night, we get a 2-episode preview of Grand Crew.

Why is Kenan Thompson smiling from ear-to-ear?
June 18th, 2021 under Kenan Thompson. [ Comments: none ]

Kenan Thompson has been working his a$$ off in Hollywood since he was a pre-teen. He has worked non-stop ever since All That started in 1994, and now the industry is finally recognizing him. He is hosting awards shows, got his own sitcom, and now he is part of the latest round of celebrities to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

If his smile doesn’t tell you how he feels about it, his words will. “I’m completely humbled by this news!!! Thank you so very much to everyone who has enjoyed my work for the last almost 30 yrs!!!” he wrote. “♥️♥️♥️ My Know it Alls, we did it!!!”

Congrats, I can’t wait to see where his career takes him next.

Can Kenan Thompson handle Universal’s VelociCoaster?
June 10th, 2021 under Kenan Thompson. [ Comments: none ]

Kenan Thompson has been put through some tough challenges on All That and Saturday Night Live. Therefore, you can think he can do anything.

NBC wanted to see if that is true, so they asked him to go on Universal’s newest ride VelociCoaster with Today’s Kerry Sanders, who rode out Hurricane Andrew in a news van.

How did he do? Thompson handled it like the boss that he is, screaming for dear life with a smile on his face in his flowered romper that his friend made him.

Someone needs to give Thompson a show where he goes to amusement parks all over the world, rides different roller coasters, and we watch his reaction. How much fun would that be?

Young Rock and Kenan score a second season
April 30th, 2021 under Kenan Thompson, The Rock. [ Comments: none ]

NBC announced today that it renewed both Young Rock and Kenan for a second season.

“It has been a true joy to watch Dwayne Johnson & Kenan Thompson on NBC every week and see families connect with their relatable, entertaining and heartwarming stories,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We’re thrilled to renew both of these shows for another season and can’t wait to see more from Dwayne, Kenan and the incredibly talented casts and producing teams behind each of them.”

It will be interesting to see what stages of DJ’s life they will take on next season. Although, I am biased for them keeping up with his life in college.

When it comes to Kenan, I can’t wait to see how they move forward after the season finale’s cliffhanger. I am assuming there will be a time jump that will take place. However, I could be wrong.

Either way, I am happy both sitcoms will be back.
