'SNL' celebrates Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson's confirmation in its cold open

At least one strand of the drama as comedy I featured in last week's 'SNL' satirizes 'Fox & Friends' in its Supreme Court cold open has come to an agreeable conclusion, which "Saturday Night Live" recognizes in last night's Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmation Cold Open.

After watching her confirmation vote with President Biden (James Austin Johnson), Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson (Ego Nwodim) receives advice from Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Kate McKinnon), Thurgood Marshall (Kenan Thompson), Harriet Tubman (Punkie Johnson) and Jackie Robinson (Chris Redd).
Once again, I feel better about the week's news when I laugh about it, especially when it turns out well.

"SNL" continued covering the occasion in Weekend Update: Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmed, Obama's Return to the White House but quickly switched gears.

Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che tackle the week's biggest news, like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences banning Will Smith from the Oscars.
The bits about Will Smith, Volodymyr Zelenskyy at the Grammys, and meet and greets returning to Disney World all qualify this entry as the Sunday entertainment feature. They also justify my decision to use today's post as a retrospective about last year's top entries about entertainment in general and awards shows in particular. Follow over the jump, please.

I closed Colbert and others have a good laugh at Zuckerberg saying his employees call him 'Sauron' with a preview of coming attractions.
That takes care of the first of two posts I mentioned that I had remaining at the end of 'SNL' satirizes 'Fox & Friends' in its Supreme Court cold open.
Two more posts featuring video clips from "SNL" landed in the top twenty, 'SNL' laughs at Facebook's bad week and 'Saturday Night Live' returns after winning eight Emmy Awards. I plan on writing about both of them, so stay tuned.
One down, one to go. Stay tuned.
It's time for me to follow through by describing how the last "SNL" post in the top twenty earned its page views.

'Saturday Night Live' returns after winning eight Emmy Awards from October 3, 2021 earned its ~1,440 default and 1,457 raw page views after I shared its link at the Coffee Party USA Facebook page. Those were enough for it to rank fourteenth according to default page views, eighteenth place among entries posted last year and twenty-first overall according to its raw page views. It ended October 2021 as the third most viewed entry for the month with ~1,290 default and 1,440 raw page views and calendar year 2021 as the tenth most read entry according to its ~1,440 default page views and seventeenth among entries posted during 2021 and nineteenth overall with 1,453 raw page views. The post pulled off the rare feat of increasing its default page views while its raw page views barely budged. How rare!

'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver' examines voting rights after winning three Emmy Awards from October 15, 2021 was the other entry about Emmy Award winners to make the top twenty for the eleventh year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News, ending the blogging year in eighteenth place according to its ~1,190 default page views, twenty-first among entries posted last blogging year and twenty-fourth overall according to its 1,370 raw page views. I shared the link at the Coffee Party USA Facebook page, which helped the entry earn ~1,120 default and 1,194 raw page views, ranking it fourth for October 2021 according to the first measure and fifth according to the second. It reached ~1,190 default page views and 1,352 raw page views by the end of calendar year 2021, ranking it sixteenth according to the former and nineteenth among all entries posted during 2021 and twenty-first overall according to raw page views.

Entertainment for the sixth year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News from April 23, 2017 earned the fourth most comments overall last year with 9 comments, bringing it up to 40 comments all time, mostly from spammers. One of the posts it recapped was 'Westworld,' 'Stranger Things,' and 'Penny Dreadful' all win Golden Reel Awards, beating 'Game of Thrones' and the image I used to illustrated it was a tweet from the Costume Designers Guild Awards, both awards shows.

'Stranger Things' wins awards from both SAG and Producers Guild from February 4, 2017 was the most saved pin from my blog about awards shows last year with 4 total saves, tying it for seventeenth among all saved pins.

'Outlander,' 'The Walking Dead,' and other fantasy, horror, and science fiction nominees at the Saturn Awards from May 19, 2021 was the only pin about awards shows saved from the current blogging year with 1 save.

Star Wars at the 2021 Saturn Awards for Star Wars Day from May 4, 2021 and tweeted October 19, 2021 had 495 impressions and 8 total engagements , including 3 detail expands, 2 profile clicks, 6 replies in 1 thread, 1 link click, and 1 hashtag click to be the most active link on Twitter from my blog during October 2021 and the most active tweet about awards shows last year.

'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' on Cinco De Mayo plus the horror, independent, and international film nominees at the 2021 Saturn Awards from May 5, 2021 and tweeted October 19, 2021 had 457 impressions and 3 total engagements, including 2 link clicks and 5 replies (by me) in 1 thread to be the second most active link on Twitter from my blog during October 2021 and the second most active tweet about awards shows last year.

That's all done and none left for the top posts on Crazy Eddie's Motie News featuring "SNL" between March 21, 2021 and March 20, 2022. Stay tuned for more of the popular entries on the blog last year this coming Throwback Thursday and Flashback Friday.
