Holy Cow, it's Molly Ringwald and Ferris Bueller, here to pay tribute to John Hughes. But the eulogies and clips continue. Ay yi yi. Ringwald, though, looks like Carol Burnett starring in "Mame." The clips are an opportunity to see a young Alec Baldwin in "She's Having a Baby." And now the other stars of his movies are here - Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Jon Cryer and Macaulay Culkin. It's a nice moment that suggests a generational shift in the production team or a nod to the 30-45-year-olds watching at home. Same with Neil Patrick Harris opening the show. Is the future of Hollywood musicals a sitcom star? Discuss.
