There first episode after 9/11 was similarly powerful.

As long as Drunk Uncle doesn't show up. That character is the biggest piece of shiat I've seen lately.

Then you haven't been watching. Saturday Night is good about three seasons per decade. Granted, it's the minority and they usually aren't consecutive. It's sort of like "duck, duck goose"...

Did Tina Fey exploit her kid again by putting her in the choir?

McCartney was the musical guest. It was pretty good, I liked the Royal OB skit.

Really? Pulling strings to get your kid to sing with Paul McCartney is "exploitative"?

Accurate. Though watching Bill Hader lose his composure made me laugh heartily, as always.

Martin Short's Larry David was pretty damn spot on. I can't think of another LD impression I've ever seen.

Tina Fey is a known Liberal, therefore everything she does is Bad And Wrong.

Silent night, holy night
all is calm all is brigh...STOP! STOP!
 
Sorry ladies and gentleman there is no reason to do that song tonight.
 
I was tuning in the shine on the light night dial
Doing anything my radio advised
With every one of those late night stations
Playing songs bringing tears to my eyes
I was seriously thinking about hiding the receiver
When the switch broke 'cause it's old
They're saying things that I can hardly believe
They really think we're getting out of control

Radio is a sound salvation...

Yeah, ya wonder how much longer SNL will be on, as it ceases to be relative in any non-Prez election year. I've seen maybe 2 episodes this year, mainly for "Weekend Update w/Seth Myers". When the first skit is having the Gangnam Style guy come out and do his dance in a hat shop and the remaining skits are downhill from there, might be time to take a few years off and rebuild...

Don't worry, they're all armed so they can properly defend themselves.

Wow, someone takes themselves too seriously, don't they? Perhaps expressing the ridiculous as if it's serious is only funny when Colbert does it.

I've laughed at them since then, but not for the reasons they would want me to.

But there's a reason he came on before Billy Joel at the benefit show, right?

Sam Jackson yelling out f--k and shiat in quick succession perked me up a bit.

"You know that's gonna cost us money, right?"

Funny stuff

I liked the Charlie Brown Christmas. The Jewish boy on update was funny. Martin Short was good all the way through. All the cameos were fun. Favorite line:
Samuel Jackson: Bullshiat.
Keenan: That costs us money.
I'd put this one in the funny pile.

honorable mention to Martin Short kissing Kate McKinnon. I'm guessing that last year the writers got together and said, "This new girl is lesbian. Let's have her kissing a guy in every episode until she cracks." Although if Louie CK didn't break her, nothing will.

My standard line, that I've been using for a decade or more, revolves around "in the 60s and 70s, people went to the streets and protested - these days, they write a really scathing blog post."

i happened to turn on snl just in time for that skit. and then turned it right back off.

Carrie Brownstein was in that skit and did nothing. Was she on other parts the show?

People still do that to some extent but forget about as quickly as anything else. Where is OWS now? Where are the Tea Party protest now? Oh right. They pretended to care for a few weeks then said fark it and went on with their lives.

If Samuel L. Jackson can say "F*ck" and "man this is bullsh*t" on live TV, I think I should be able to repeat in on fark without being censored.

Excellent episode last night, one of the best of the year. And its been a good year so far.

I haven't watched SNL in years but I caught it a couple weeks ago and there are some hotties on there now. That's quite a score because hot girls who are funny are hard to find. For every Tina Fey or Sarah Silverman you get a Victoria Jackson or Nora Dunn.

You spelled "y'know" wrong. Unless, that is, you were going for Yanni, Yo-Yo, Yoko, Yakov, Yngwie, Yoshi, Yuri, or Janosz. Pick one and be sure to get back to me.
