Day In Their Life: Emmys Host Michael Che

He’s co-hosting the 2018 Emmys, but Saturday Night Live writer/Weekend Update anchor Michael Che’s life this summer consisted of a lot of stand-up touring. So I tried a New York open mic. Video of the full 7-minute set is available to the highest bidder.

Check out the whole series, including videos on Cristiano Ronaldo, Oprah, and WWE’s Braun Strowman. Then let me know who I should profile next on Twitter @mikejanela.

Well now that ABC has made it official, I can announce it here: I’m going to play on The $100,000 Pyramid!

Episode airs Sunday, August 19, at 9 P.M. on, obviously, ABC and I get to play with Jon Lovitz and Bobby Moynihan. Make sure to watch but if you miss it, I’ll be updating on here of course. And follow me @mikejanela on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for updates as they happen there too.

“Riverdale” writer Brian Paterson: Ep. 76

He’s a story editor and writer for one of TV’s hottest shows. Ahead of the Riverdale season two finale, Brian Paterson tells me how the show’s writers room works, who his favorite character is, who decides when Archie and Jughead take their shirts off, and how he deals with the army of passionate Riverdale Nation fans on Twitter.

Plus: will his Mets ever win the World Series again?

Keep up with Brian on Twitter and Instagram. Then follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook too!
