Morgan returns to SNL, where he performs the opening monologue.
I was in a terrible car crash a year ago. It was awful, but it also showed me how much love and support I have in this world…People are wondering: can he speak? Does he have 100% mental capacity? But the truth is I never had 100%. In might actually be a few points higher now.
He is joined by his 30 Rock co-stars. Fey:
We’re so happy that you’re OK, but we’re even happier that you’re ready to make people laugh again.
Fey co-writes Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with Carlock. The show, about a woman who comes to New York after spending 15 years in a cult, stars Ellie Kemper and Jane Krakowski from Fey and Carlock’s previous show 30 Rock. Fey:
My producing partner, Robert Carlock [who coproduced 30 Rock], and I wanted to write something for Ellie; she’s adorable but also has strength. We live in a strange world in which people, literally and metaphorically, like to lock up women. And we liked the idea of Ellie playing a survivor and starting over.
