SNL is Friggin' Horrible! Except when Timberlake is hosting.

That was kind of my impression. Who knew comedians were such divas.

It was pretty easy to see who still had it though. Is John Goodman ill or was he drunk? Bill Murray didn't do much either. No comedy that I can recall. Definitely takes himself way too seriously now. Martin Short of all people just killed it. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey need to do another Wayne's World movie. They were right on point.

I think the funniest part of the show is when Kayne jumped up the second time and then Myers jumped up too like he was startled. Cracked me right up. Just the look of fight or flight he gave. He needs to do some more movies.

Did you miss the Jaws song?

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. I didn't think it was very funny but at least he did something.

Fallon told a great story about the after party performances...good stuff:

A quick peek of Sir Paul/Swift/Fallon, Debby Harry, and Prince's performances

There's obviously good quality video of all it, its gotta surface soon.

That after party would have been awesome to attend. I think my invitation must have got lost in the mail.

People often like to rag on Taylor Swift but I think she would be fun to hang around. Even Prince with an impromptu song. When he is done, Fallen should write a book with all his stories he has and is going to gather over the years.

I thought it was hilarious and Bill gave it his all.

Eddie Murphy was given such a great intro, got a standing ovation from the crowd and it just seemed like such a great moment. Maybe something pivotal, like he might be able to have a comeback and revive his career. Then he just kinda craps on the moment. So odd.

That's why I mentioned 'angry' Eddie...even if he wasn't in the mood to perform...how hard would it have been to get pissed off on stage?

I watched the red carpet junk and Eddie seemed totally cool and gracious in that interview. Same goes for Chevy Chase, actually, who struck me as fully contrite (and sadly looks like he's about to kick the bucket)

I think they pretty much got what they were given

Bill Murray spent the better part of a year sofa surfing and crashing parties of random people that emailed him. No way does he take himself too seriously.

Not sure anyone mentioned it, but Keenan's Cosby as the video Jeopardy question on Potent Potables might have been the funniest moment in the show.

"We filmed that in June"

:lmao:

That was probably the funniest "new" thing they did. Standing there shaking that drink, talking jibberish in his stupid sweater :lmao:

Murphy's appearance was very odd . . . wonder if they had to cut it due to time constraints. Although that's not the part I would chose to cut.

The show was aired live except for mountain and west.

Yeah, I know, that's why they might have had to cut it.

If anyone cut it short, it was Murphy himself. He was telling the crew he was done and trying to figure out how to smoothly exit to commercial.

It was strange with him and Seinfeld's cut to commercial. The crew didn't seem to pick up on queues that they were done talking.

It really seemed like they were given free reign to say and do whatever and SNL was just happy to have them there.

the californians sketch has already been ripped to shreds in here, right?

on a night when so many things and people were just too short- that thing went on for freaking ever.

Like the Jeopardy sketch, it was a vehicle to get as many people on stage as possible in a single sketch. Unlike the Jeopardy sketch, it was horrible. Taylor Swift sounded like she was doing the Swedish Chef.

Taylor Swift can do no wrong.

anyone thing Fallon and Justin could just do a show themselves? sprinkle in samburg

When Timberlake's last album came out, he was on Fallon's show every night for a week. They destroyed. Their history of rap medleys they do go viral, but also check out from that week when Fallon (as Michael McDonald), Timberlake (as Michael McDonald), and Michael McDonald (as Michael McDonald) sang "Row, Row, Row Your Boat".

Some of you guys will ##### and moan about anything. This thread has been so sad to read the last couple of days. Why critique a fun once in a lifetime show like that so harshly? Why focus so much on what you perceive to be the negative stuff? They threw together a 3 and a half hour show with a hundred or so people taking part and some here a whining that the technical cues weren't perfect? To quote William Shatner in that Star Trek sketch, get a life! And if you didn't think the Bill Murray Nick Ocean lounge singer Jaws song was funny then really your opinion about anything should never be taken seriously again. Just an awful display here the last few days. Terrible. Just no satisfying some people.

dude, it's a message board. It's for discussion. And giving opinions. The comments have been largely positive. If someone doesn't like something, should he hesitate to comment because thin-skinned Willie Nelson might get butthurt by it? Get a grip.

It was great overall. Like a walk down memory lane. Wayne's world had me just staring at the screen with a grin on my face. Loved celebrity Jeopardy (wife got the Who reads right away and I got Let it Snow) so we high fived. It was bittersweet as well seeing how comedy is largely a young man's game. The shot of Phil Hartman and Chris Rock cuddling on the stage always hits me in the gut. Two of my very favorites.

Did you mean to say that SNL is largely a Lorne looking for young, undiscovered talent game?

Chris Farley...but yea a touching scene.

Also the short of Belushi in disguise as an old man and saying 'everyone assumed I'd die young'.

Simmons BS Report recapping the show was a good listen. Agreed, the special really short-changed Dick Ebersol.

Figured out what Simmons meant by "inside baseball" when referring to the "You're Simply the Best" parody digital short. Was a call-back to the Tina Turner sketch they were accused of stealing earlier in the season.

If you are haven't already check out @normmacdonald twitter timeline right now. Tells a great story about the SNL 40 episode. Deals with Eddie Murphy and Celebrity Jeopardy among other things. Apparently the plan was to have Murphy play Kenan's role as Cosby at the end and bring down the house but Eddie declined.

Love Norm. Fascinating behind the scenes stuff.

Watching again. They should have had Martin and Akroyd do the wild and crazy guys as old men. Would have played a hundred times better than Akroyd doing the bassomatic word for word

Eh. They just did that a couple of years ago with the #### in a Box guys.

lolwut

Ah -- did not see that. I thought he meant that Dick in a Box was a reprise of Two Wild and Crazy Guys.
