SNL 45

Recommended Posts

It was almost too much humor and spot-on cameos last night in the debate last night, I could have watched that for another hour.  As if  Will Ferrell said to Lorne, "I know what it's like for this show to break open a career for somebody.  Having said that, I'd like some of my old castmates and friends to be in most of the sketches."  

The Pocahantas "meet the family" sketch was hilarious.  Who told you that, "The Fox did!  better than that crazy peacock you're always talking to." 

the high school party was a nice little call back to Frank the Tank from Old School.  Wizard of Oz was great.  As was the 10to1 with Puppet Rape.  

Pizza place and Heinz relax were awful.  Cold Open and Weekend Update were serviceable, nothing terribly memorable.  

Great episode overall, probably because Will called in a dozen favors and everybody he brought in was nails.

I thought that was the best episode in awhile.

“Did we go with you til the end of your journey?”
“Actually I kind of peaced out to the woods with my dog. I think I saw one of you had hanged yourself.”

thought the exact same thing. i mean, she looks great, especially for 50 (which she also pointed out)...but damn, that was some next level conceit.

At least the insanely hot wife/loser husband TV interview is a running bit, so can't blame her too much for that. But the 3 sisters one was fucking painful to watch. "Maybe if I should stick a sausage in my mouth to keep from talking." Wow, hilarious.

Fairly weak episode, esp considering the host. The Macy’s commercial and cold open were both damn strong though.

Macy's was great. ScarJo has slipped a bit, she was my overall top seed for quite a while. Still easily in the field of course. Also had no idea she was with Jost.

Yeah the last 2 weeks had a few very funny skits, but like usual, a bunch of misses.

I have high hopes for Eddie Murphy's return this week. It will either be off the charts awesome or a EM version of the JLo episode. I'm hoping for the former.

After reminiscing about his previous experiences on the late-night sketch show, Murphy teased what might serve for comedic fodder this time around. “We’re talking about a Gumby thing, we’re talking about a Buckwheat thing, and I told you a Bill Cosby thing maybe, it’ll be very funny,” he told Roker. “I don’t know if he would think it was funny…I’m down for whatever, as long as it’s really really funny.”

I am so looking forward to this & I hope they us a few of his old characters - I'd love to see what Mr. Robinson has to say about his neighborhood, and maybe some white like me

If I am in Snl Writer and I knew about Eddie Murphy hosting this week for the last several weeks, I’d sure as hell be holding some good stuff back for him and not wasting it on J-LO.  There’s a reason why almost every skit or digital short Haf to do with her good looks because those kinds of sketches  won’t be needed for Eddie Murphy.

I wonder what Tyrone Green has been up to.

Dark and lonely on the summer night.
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
Watchdog barking - Do he bite?
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
Slip in his window,
Break his neck!
Then his house
I start to wreck!
Got no reason --
What the heck!
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
C-I-L-L ...
My land - lord ...

I think I'd rather watch the writing sessions for this episode than the actual episode. The amount of material they have to work with is crazy. They could fill up 10 hours.

Tracy Morgan stole the monologue. 

I made all my millions on the road.

You mean touring?

No. I got hit by a truck.

going in, i thought if they just did a bunch of his old characters, then it would be lazy and unfunny.

i was wrong about that.

I was afraid they wouldn't do any of his old characters and thankfully I was wrong about that.

That was fan service in the best way. Mr Robinson was damn near perfect. Black Jeopardy went a little different direction but they nailed it. Eddie seemed comfortable even when he flubbed a line.

I also always enjoy the Jost/Che surprise reading of each other's jokes. Black cue hard holder LMFAO

That weekend update was an all timer. 


Yes, it was. Jost’s face on the punchline of the Buttigeg joke (picking the Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich as a running mate to improve his black supporter numbers) was hilarious. Hell, Pete Davidson even has a couple good lines about Jost laying the wood to ScarJo.

Yep. Obviously Gumby was the highlight, but the joke swap was great, Davidson was mildly funny, and Jeanine Pirro had me rolling. 

“I only had one glass of wine with dinner!”

”Well what did you have for dinner?”

”Two bottles of wine!!”

The Eddie Murphy Comedians in Cars is good and worth watching.  You can see there is real pain, and frankly confusion, in Eddie in the way Cosby singled him out in the ‘80s.  The joke last night was awesome and spot on, and fuck Cosby’s people.
