6 Things Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Should Do After Hosting the Golden Globes a Final Time
It's the end of an era: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globes in January for the third and final time. As they said in so many words in an interview about why they would not go on to host any longer, it's better to burn out than fade away: "'This is our third time. How are we going to keep it fresh?" Poehler asks. "Uh, we're not," Fey quips.'" Though I beg to differ. I wish they could go on forever churning out the best hosting job this side of Billy Crystal, but I appreciate the idea of quitting while you're ahead. They also said they had one goal this year: to make Julia-Louis Dreyfus laugh (would love to see her host the Globes in 2016 after Amy and Tina's tenure is over).
Another shot to the heart: Parks and Recreation is beginning and ending it's seventh season from January to February of 2015, which means we simultaneously have to say goodbye to Tina and Amy as the Globes hosts as well as to our beloved Lady of Waffles, Leslie Knope. That means for the first time in a long time, neither Fey or Poehler will be on television. I'm not sure how to deal with this, except by hanging on to the hope that they continue to be best friends forever (a certainty) and continue to do projects together (a pretty plausible hope). Some ideas/ dreams for their next collaborations...
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
But exclusively for places where you can get drunk munchies, e.g. 24-hour donut shops. Guy Fieri would obviously be a special guest often. Title ideas: "Working on Our Night Cheese."
The Serial Murder Podcast
Sarah Koenig has revolutionized the podcast medium, and One of the Greats Chelsea Peretti has her own podcast, so why not a comedy-murder podcast hybrid from Poehler and Fey? Their banter would be just as good as Sarah and Dana's. They could even go undercover.
The Daily Show with Tina and Amy
Because I so loved when Tina and Amy were the hosts of Weekend Update, I would for sure want to see them as correspondents on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. They could be some of the best female correspondents of all time, besides of course the illustrious Samantha Bee. OR, they could start their own comedy news show, for which they would have to steal Jessica Williams.
Mystery Science Theatre
Except they just get drunk and pick apart all the plot holes in terrible rom-coms. Alternately: in which they get drunk and troll people on Tinder.
How have they NOT written a book together already?!
Movie Magic, Obviously
Be honest, how many times have you seen Baby Mama? I'm sure you still use the phrase "I don't know your life."
Regardless of whatever adventure they decide to embark on next together, we know it will be worth the wait, cause bitches get stuff done.
