"It's fascinating that a 45-second bit cost Brody so dearly..."

"Dearly"?  He got banned from SNL.  Isn't that kind of like getting banned from Sizzler?

People still HATE Sinead O'Connor for the picture-shredding bit; no doubt people today will call her an attention whore for it.

Of course, that she was protesting the Catholic Church's cover-up of sexual abuse of minors by the clergy in a very public and open forum is lost on them.  Both she and Elvis Costello get a pass in my book, and Frank Zappa was just being Frank Zappa so the dunce cap goes on the head of whomever booked him.

I've been banned from Fark from commenting for 48 hours several times......it made me feel proud.

...how about everyone from the 1980 season except for Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo?

/Also, I'm guessing Ashlee Simpson is on that list as well.

Watched parts of 2 episodes this season. I'd say comedic writers as a whole have apparently been banned from the show.
 
2013-05-14 10:17:32 AM
Martin Lawrence was banned by the same people that gave NBC a big FARK YOU with the "Lord and Lady Douchebag" skit.
 
2013-05-14 10:23:22 AM
I'm not sure if she was banned, but Jenny Slate got canned for dropping the f-bomb on air.

I remember seeing the Martin Lawrence skit.  Was hilarious, but I was pretty young so "vulgar=funny.

Which means her public and open protest failed.

I'll bet somebody at least explained to Brody why he was banned.

Lorne Michaels should ban himself for thinking Steven Seagal would be a legitimately good choice for a host.

Not to mention the near slavery conditions that young girls were kept in the Magdalene Laundries. That went on from the 1700's until 1996! They literally abducted young, unmarried women from the street. Sinead was housed in one of these laundries when she was young.

Was it during the 90s? Because Seagal was kinda popular (For him.) during that time, before he decided that he was a cop and, apparently, a mystic.

Yeah....the early 90's were pretty dark times.

At least Costello's ban was listed, and led to this.

Zappa's version of the SNL incidents is somewhat different. The whole cast except for Jane Curtain was out of their gourd on drugs, so naturally he would have a certain degree of contempt for it and minimal patience as well. He was probably the only totally straight one there, yet he gets made into the bad guy.

Probably my favorite moment from SNL, period.

Steven Seagall kept pushing a sketch idea that he had about a woman getting raped but gradually getting into it. It creeped everyone out and makes the fact that he's now a cop make more sense.
 
2013-05-14 11:23:40 AM
They expected The Replacements to NOT be drunk?  That was their first mistake.

Seagal has some great action movies.

[Redacted] is still waiting for an explanation. He was permabanned with some garbage explanation. Hockey threads are not the same.
 
2013-05-14 11:34:57 AM
Zappa was banned in 1978 after doing a disastrous job of hosting the show, which included blatantly mugging for the camera and announcing to the audience that he was reading from cue cards.

So why weren't Jimmy Fallon or Amy Poehler banned?

Sounds like, well, pretty much every japanese depiction of rape in cinema/manga/pron ever.  It's seriously disturbing, but it's pretty much how it's always depicted.

So did Charles Rocket, IIRC.

Norm Macdonald.

He went from Crack Whore to Assistant Crack Whore to Banned Assistant Crack Whore seemingly overnight. I think it was because he trashed OJ all the time. OJ was a friend of an NBC high mucky muck.

Learn one lesson from this. Never, ever make fun of a double murderer. Especially if his friends work for NBC.
 
2013-05-14 11:45:41 AM
How about Andrew Dice Clay?  I recall a big stink being made by Nora Dunn when he was host.  And she was already leaving the show according to what I heard at the time.
 
2013-05-14 11:50:11 AM
Also Norm Macdonald said a curse word.

Apparently Uncle Milty was so awful he is now banned from the banned list.

In its early years, as the first TV comedy series created "by the TV generation for the TV generation," SNL often used hosts from the golden age of television (Desi Arnaz, Broderick Crawford, Rick Nelson) to pay tribute to the black-and-white era. but Berle's gruesome ego-tripping performance, which began with a crowd-clearing monologue overstuffed with crude ethnic wisecracks and climaxed with a maudlin song, put a stake through the heart of that tradition. Lorne Michaels was so grossed out by what Berle did to the show that he insisted that the episode never be shown in reruns, a decree that stood for almost twenty-five years.

I'd heard Louise Lasser was beyond terrible as well---wasted at show time and mostly unable to perform.  And I don't recall seeing her on SNL lately.....
 
2013-05-14 12:11:18 PM
Sinéad O'Connor Her performance brought tears of joy to my eyes.
I felt hope for humanity when she did that.

Slate dropped the bomb on the first episode of the broadcast year and finished out the season. Her contract was not renewed.  I'm pretty sure it wasn't just the fark-word, a lot of featured players only last a year...sometimes less.

The Sinead O'Conner crap has two sides to it.  Yes, she got banned....and there was outrage.

But the show milked it for all it was worth...with Piscopo doing Sinatra ragging her, Jan Hooks putting on the bald cap and ragging her, and on and on.

So yeah...it was an issue, but the show was given a TON of good comedy material to mine after the incident and they took advantage of it.  Plus they got a crapload of news coverage as a result, which is a win-win by any account.

You can actually differentiate between the different squeeks they make in those movies.
Christ, I find their women beautiful, but their porn can't be listened to. I am pretty sure some of the noises they make are only hearable by dogs.

Gah... That was supposed to be phrased in the form of a question.
