I liked Mumford and Sons jams myself. Too bad they've already finished their US tour and headed to Australia and New Zealand. :-(

That. Was. Surprisingly funny.

Of course, I stare at my navel in the bathtub a lot, too.

SNL hasn't been funny for years, wake up sheeple!

The "best moments" of any SNL episode in the last 20 years is like the "best symptoms" of Ebola.

I went to high school with her (Kate), so I'm highly entertained.

/Her voice is almost nothing like that.

Tres Equis was funny.

Meh, so is SNL. But you responded to the post of a Farker who describes himself as a "Trolling in a sea filled with low IQ turds"

The absolute worst moment, though, was that gawd-awful skit with JGL in drag. That was like, this was the bit that made it to air? There wasn't some 'JGL as Batman' (or Bruce Willis) skit in the can?

Shine On You Crazy Diamond: There were 5?


Yeah, I'm a huge SNL fan (and usually the defender of the show in the "HASN'T BEEN FUNNY IN YEARS" conversation)...and I couldn't come up with 5 funny moments from last night's show. 

Maybe 4, but it'd be a stretch.

Why can't I watch this in Canada?

I hate SNL too much to watch it, but I am so happy that my longtime internet-comedy-and-gay-tv crush Kate McKinnon has gone mainstream. Love her
 
2012-09-23 03:24:13 PM  
I like how McKinnon depicts Ann Romney. Her blink rate's almost zero, which I didn't notice right away.
 
2012-09-23 03:24:18 PM  
SNL sucks because the Not Ready for Prime-Time Player's highlight reel is sooooo much better than the stuff I saw last night.

i actually said that to mrs. knarf while we were watching, was uncomfortable not funny.

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought the whole episode was just "meh." I was doubly disappointed because JGL was awesome the last time he hosted. They just didn't have the skits for him this time around.

I love it when some idiot thinks they're above all of the rest of us. It's like the "Get A Brain Morans" guy times ten. At least he's probably not still carrying that sign around today.

"Kate McKinnon's hilarious turn as Anne Romney"

You misspelled unfunny there.
 
2012-09-23 03:43:10 PM  
"You think I'm unrelatable? Callista Gengrich looks like a character from Mars Attacks."

I laughed.
 
2012-09-23 03:48:08 PM  
OK, i enabled proxies just for the lulz... and the "Everyone loves Beyon-céeee, Seth" and "Mormon Mardi Gras" lines were pretty funny.

But the Undecided Voters ad beats anything I've seen on SNL in years.
 
2012-09-23 04:23:34 PM  
The Atlantic is ridiculous and should shut their doors in shame.

Canada is a merciful place.

Because Canada loves you and doesn't want to see you harmed.

Nobody else thought the tampon bit was funny? I larfed.

Undecided Voters sketch was funny and addressed every single gripe I have with them. Worst AWs ever.
 
2012-09-23 05:19:25 PM  
No mention of the sexy dancing?

Just because you hate Anne Romney does not mean it was funny.

Looks like I have a new favorite Farker.

I hate Anne Romney and I found it extremely unfunny, so there!

Do people actually watch SNL all the way through, or just wait for someone else to post the highlights the next day?

Kate needs to watch Tina Fey as Palin to learn the funny. She sucked. And her part killed weekend update as Seth was on a pretty good role.

Missed it, didn't think new shows were on, thought everything was on hiatus. Looks like I didn't miss much, I thought is was a rerun. I only watch if I like a host or the musical guest.

Grew up watching SNL and am still irreverent but the show, not so much anymore... sad really.

last 20 minutes usually has some great sketches that are filling the air when most people are already asleep. That's when they try out some new material instead of "same character that we see every week interact with the guest host"

Most sketches bomb, but every now and then theres a "give up the ham"
 
2012-09-24 05:00:19 PM  
Poor liberals are desperate for their Tina Fey moment of this election.
 
2012-09-24 07:11:42 PM  
Remember when Michelle Obama had a job with a hospital that paid 350,000 dollars a year, job so important that they did not bother to fill it when she left...yes...no pay off to a senator's wife here citizens, move along please.
