The guy from the commercials with the kids?

Curb your disapproval, Subby. It's not like anyone will watch it in the first place.

Give Jay Pharoah more to do! His impressions are spot on and he's funny as hell.

2013-08-23 10:28:05 AM
So? All I ask is that they all be funny. I couldn't care less what color they are.

They won't all be funny, will they?

I kinda like that guy. Those commercials amuse me about as much as the average SNL sketch.

I'm gonna need you to be more vague here. Was there a thing? Did the commercial with the guy and the kids have one of those things in it?

They're actually helping other races by keeping them away from that awful thing. It's the white man's burden.

Who cares?  Why don't we stop making a big deal about what race or sexual orientation people who get cast in shows and movies are. So there's no blacks, Indians or Asians cast in any of the four spots. Big freaking deal.

They were probably hired because they were the four least funny of all who auditioned.

This. Wall $treet Week with Louis Rukeyser was so much funnier than SNL.
 
2013-08-23 10:41:51 AM
Oh no! They're all white! Everyone knows white people can't be funny!!!!

What's your point again?
 
2013-08-23 10:42:47 AM
SNL only needs 1-2 black cast members, and maybe 1 ambiguous brown person.
 
2013-08-23 10:42:59 AM
So?
Popular entertainment culture isn't politically correct, it's sexy and popular.
Not that SNL is funny anymore, so it might as well be sexy.

I like watching SNL with a cup of Ovaltine, right after I've watched "Wheel" and my "stories" that I prerecorded on my VHS.

That's the magic formula that has always worked for them. Sometimes you get an Eddie Murphy, but usually you can hope for yeoman work from that guy that played the Ladies Man. Usually you get something horrid, like that black woman in the early 90s that was the poster child for tokenism, because I don't remember her as anything other than an extra in every skit.

Uh oh, looks like we got an internet hipster over here.

I bet you hated SNL before hating SNL was cool.

I thought you didn't even OWN a tv.

I thought the punchline in the headline was supposed to be, "Just kidding, they're actually funny."

He'll be a great Everyman like Parnell. Snl is missing people who can consistently deliver like that.

YOU farkING RACISTS MAKE ME SICK!

This is why Asians fail to succeed in this country: There are no television shows with Asian people beating up White guys, or acting funny.

/DOWN WITH RACISM! STOP HOLDING BACK ASIANS PEOPLE!

Why should they have minorities on a show located in one of the most diverse cities in America? Not like SNL gives them much to do anyways. Garrett Morris wasn't even used that much in the original SNL.

What the show needs to do is find a good replacement for Lorne Michaels. They need a younger producer, and probably better gag writers while they're at it.
 
2013-08-23 11:06:39 AM
If Kevin Hart is the funniest black man out there, then that explains why SNL is picking white guys.

/Kevin Hart is not funny
 
2013-08-23 11:07:45 AM
that's because white comedians can do a whole routine without a 'shank whitey' joke.
it just makes for better television.

I think Lorne's been at the helm so long that no successor's going to get over without his approval and a formal torch-passing.

Gosling: I think Lorne's been at the helm so long that no successor's going to get over without his approval and a formal torch-passing.


He had a good thing going with the kids in the hall, but when he decided to stop that and pull them to the USA he basically mangled it

I think he's lost it.
Show was much better when he had a bunch of uncontrolled coke heads running amok.

No. He's really not. His impressions are decent, but he doesn't seem to know what to do with them, and he always plays like he knows he isn't doing well(he isn't).

Why is diversity more important that quality?
 
2013-08-23 11:20:02 AM
Well, from the looks of the first picture, they have a transvestite.  That's pretty bold and diverse.
 
2013-08-23 11:20:45 AM
The only true diversity is diversity of opinion.

Early prediction: Beck Bennett will take over as Weekend Update anchor when Seth Meyers leaves.

I was not aware that SNL was under some Justice department pre-casting approval requirement. Does the same apply to the BET channel?

Because dammit, this is America!  EQUALITY is more important than HIGH QUALITY.
