Animal Planet is not an acceptable nickname for Telemundo.

Ouch.

With very limited exception, that entire show was painful to watch. The "drunk uncle" bit, which they closed on, was literally the most painfully unfunny thing I've ever seen.

And Seth Meyers has the most annoying "I'm about to tell you a joke that's gonna be soooo funny just you wait, look how proud of myself I am" half-laughing-smirk. He killed at the Correspondents Dinner last year, but Jesus Christ does he suck on TV.

I didn't watch it, but based on the summaries I've read, NBC should be embarassed.

The midweek election stuff is so good, yet the regular show is so bad. Last night was no exception.

Funniest thing SNL related in 6 years.

/Still only a mild chuckle.
//Still a recycled gag.

It's some kind of Poe's Law corollary: Since the actual election is a never ending parade of escalating hilarity, you can't really satirize it effectively.

No joke: I just heard RMoney say that since Obama got an 'Incomplete' on his first term, he gets to to take the course over again.

Lobsters are not "ocean spiders."

But they are considered the cockroaches of the sea.

Does fox new know they're the laughing stock of the media world? Either they don't know or don't care.
 
2012-09-21 09:34:08 AM  
Is this the place where all the people who never watch Saturday Night Live or any of the specials come to tell us all how bad the show was?

Well, it was pretty funny if your not a hipster douche I guess.

The "corrections" on the link were pretty funny, yet I can see Fox actually saying most of them.

Yeah, I remember the Daily Show doing a bit where they exposed the female anchor of Fox and Friends as a Magna cum laude graduate of a prestigious university. They're snake oil salesmen playing it up for the rubes.

Lobsters are not "ocean spiders."
Cat Fancy is a magazine, not a man/cat dating website.


It's my understanding that these are, in fact, true.

I don't think SNL has been funny since 1979, so I probably should shut up.

Lorne Michaels should just apologize to Norm and offer him all the money in the world to come back and make Weekend Update respectable. Hell, get Colin to do it. At least he knew he was bad and made it better because of it.

Phantoms5000: Meh... it's been done before, thank you

That episode aired in 1994. I guess the SNL writers figured the statute of limitations on stealing gags ran out on that one.

I enjoyed it.

Perhaps, but Monty Python also did it before The Simpsons, and I doubt seriously if even they actually originated it.

Oh, I know that, but Lorne is still the show runner and Don isn't with NBC anymore.

As I was looking at that, I was wondering why the fuk I bothered click that link. Then I noticed the link to all the Emma Stone Picts. So it turned out ok after all.

Watching "Fox & Friends" is like watching society fall apart one I.Q. point at a time.
 
2012-09-21 12:49:28 PM  
Dammit, and I've been looking for that Rocky vs Lassie video for years.

Wanna bet the first draft of that contained the more obvious and more racist reference?

What's painful is that I've caught a couple of Norm MacDonald's ads for Safe Auto during SNL, even in the commercial segment immediately following Weekend Update. At this point I just feel bad for the guy.

Waldo Pepper: so left wing NBC makes fun of fox being right wing. One would think with NBC being owned by GE they would want Romney in the white house but I guess it doesn't matter both sides are owned by big corporations.


There's your problem: as a Fox apologist, you assume that every media outlet grovels at the feet of its corporate masters like Fox does. You also repeat, parrot-like, the tired old librul media canard. It just seems like it compared to the crapfest that is Fox. I mean they even get taken in by a 3 year old picture of a pirate to smear Obama. Sad for you, sadder for the country.

You can be smart and educated and still be deluded. The rationalizations just get more sophisticated.
