Ne-Yo's a hottie. Like my coffee I don't take 'em black but for him I'd make an exception.
Foxx, on the other hand, is a fuggo.
Jamie Foxx....is it 2004 again?
bump for laughs!
Get ready for hilarious skits!
Great. Two dl homos
It's starting now!
It's on now!
Jay Pharoah's Obama is scary good.
Jamie Fox is so ugly!
It's hard to look at him without thinking of Wanda.
He only played the piano because I did.
[quote]Jamie Foxx....is it 2004 again?
His opening monologue sure seemed like it.
"How black is President Obama?"
Did Jamie even introduce Ne-Yo?
What an AWFUL opening skit and Jamie's monologue was offensive............but not as racist as the current skit where Jamie is calling everyone a "bitch."
Worst 15 minutes of SNL in years.
Bitch, this first skit is already running too long bitch.
And supposedly they put the best skits first!
Does not bode well for the rest of the show.
[quote] is it 2004 again?
Apparently next week it will be the 1970s and 1980s again: host Martin Short and musical guest Paul McCartney.
can't think of a less relevant show. it's running on pure name recognition now.
This is awful.
The next time Jamie Foxx is funny on SNL will be the first time Jamie Foxx is funny on SNL.
What a terrible series of opening sketches (and monologue). Turned it off. If there's anything funny it'll be on Hulu tomorrow.
Can't they bring back Mary Gross? I'm sure it can't be worse than this...
You can't say Martin Short isn't funny.
What's wrong with his face? It looks...off. Too gaunt or something.
Friend of mine was at the dress rehearsal. There's a Broadway musical talk show sketch that was pretty funny.
Ne-Yo has chunky thighs.
Even the male dancers were bad.
30 minutes to go, I'm curious how bad Jamie Foxx is.
R25, I thought the same thing - all that dancing and Neyo has a flabby-looking ass, hips made for birthing and an obvious starter belly.
Why does EVERY Jamie Foxx joke have to be a racist-tinged?
I still don't understand how Foxx and J Lo were the breakout stars of IN LIVING COLOR.
Nothing about tonight's SNL makes sense.
R31, yeah, whatever happened to that Jim Carrey guy?
Another game show parody? And yet another game show parody in the same show?
It is all about Black Power!
You guys are too white to get the humour.
This is the worst SNL I can ever remember seeing and I've been watching since I was 5 ('86). What the fuck happened?
Of course it is, r34!
Coming from a closted sell out it's a bit rich, too.
Get a load at the pretentious spelling troll aka r34 saying we are too white to get the "humour" of game show parodies and pimp jokes.
And Jay Pharoah is neither funny nor is he a good enough impressionist.
Could you IMAGINE the otrage if a comparable WHITE actor - aka Jim Carrey - said "Kill all the black people" in an opening sketch?
It collapsed in on it's own mythology, r35.
People are hired based on how they will fit into the environment rather than whether or not they're funny.
Back in the day, it was more about talent spotting, like old A&R record people did.
Iconoclasts like Norm MacDonald and even Eddie Murphy probably wouldn't be hired today. (In fairness, Murphy got in through persistence rather than sheer comic talent.)
It's also highly discriminatory against ugly women and people of colour.
Can't wait for the Broadway musical sketch.
Maine Justice is not funny.
I know, its, no apostrophe.
It's having a pretty shitty season, isn't it?
Maine Justice is one of the funniest sketches I've seen in While.
Who is the idiot in the audience who keeps yelling "yeeee-ow!"
Really embarrassing- every black stereotype in the world. That pimp sketch was worthy of the worst portrayal of a black man-so demeaning-And shit did Dermot Mulroney get haggard looking and old.
I did like the Swarovski Crystal ad at the end.
Who was the blond girl in that? She pretty much stole the sketch.
I must be on another planet. Every time I come here after SNL to voice my opinion of the show my opinion is the opposite of the great majority. I thought the show was great. Jamie Foxx had the best opening monologue in awhile. He was relaxed and charismatic.
I'm watching on the West coast and there is something fucked up about the show.
Not just Foxx being dull, at first I thought they had a technical problem.
The photo thing when they come back from a commercial is hanging and hanging. It's as if they're having to fill time from some kind of fuck up, or they aren't ready to go back on the air on time.
R47 is Helen Keller
R46 - that blonde with the roots was the fantastic Kate McKinnon - I think it was her only sketch this week, and that's too bad.
She has more talent than just about all the other cast members put together...
The rest of the show sucked - there was no Broadway talk show. And the funniest joke was the throwaway at the end of the Dylan McDermott/Dermot Mulroney game show, when the host said the next show was the Djimon Hansou/Chiwetel Ejiofor game show, and all 3 black contestants immediately knew who they were...
[quote]Worst 15 minutes of SNL in years.
How could you tell?
This shit show hasn't been watchable since 1993.
Why do you people continue to watch when you know it is unfunny shit?
Do you not have cable?
R50, no, it wasn't. It was the chick who played the ASL translator and The Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started A Conversation With A Party. You're an idiot and blind.
SNL is seldom funny to me. If this is funny, I don't get funny. I did laugh out loud during offensive Michigan State piece when they panned to Fred Armison as the the Japanese girl friend.
Shame on me.
Is Ne-Yo gay? I saw a photo somewhere that was supposed to be him getting his dick sucked by a woman. The pic was taken by the blow job recipient in front of a mirror. He had his pants pulled down, his underwear was still on with his dick sticking through his underpants. What is this pulling your dick out through the pee hole?
The woman was on her knees at the edge of the bed blowing him. You could see her ass with a thong on. Later it occurred to me that she might not have been a real woman.
Nobody has mentioned the Alex Cross trailer, which was hilarious. The rest of the show... Not so much.
The Swarovski bit was kinda funny and I actually LOL'd at the, what never goes out of style..ANAL line.
It just seemed to fit the norm of shows with comedians as host not being funny. It's the ones with host who you least expect, such as athletes, which tend to be funnier.
Bring back Bruno Mars
Or Eli Manning!
If you slow mo the monologue, you can see the outline of Jamie's big dick.
I like him, he has a good sense of humor, is a good singer, and at least he wasn't reading cue cards like a lot of hosts.
Cecily Strong is the female cast member.
Wasn't reading cue cards? Maybe not for the monologue, but it looked like he was reading cue cards in the skits I saw, like the "bitch" skit.
Thought more DLers would like the Dylan McDermott/Dermot Mulroney skit. People always mention them in the "stars you get confused" threads.
They should do a Bill Paxton/Bill Pullman game show in next week's episode.
[quote] It just seemed to fit the norm of shows with comedians as host not being funny.
The Louis CK hosted ep of SNL was the funniest this season by far.
r29, spot on.
Ne Yo and his DL dancers were fat, dude.
The Swarovski skit was probably the funniest and should've been earlier in the show.
The Skvarowski skit HAD to be last - the censors wouldn't allow the "anal" joke until after midnight EST.
I must be the only one who preferred Fred Armisen as Obama. Pharoah is physically all wrong for it, and his voice and mannerisms are not all that either.
"I like him, he has a good sense of humor, is a good singer, and at least he wasn't reading cue cards like a lot of hosts"
Were you drunk while watching the show?
The Broadway show sketch is being retooled for Martin Short next week.
They did a sketch about Princess Kate's obstetrician with Fred Armisen again playing the Queen but it got cut for obvious reasons.
I think Martin Short paid Foxx and/or the writing staff to suck that badly so that he'd look brilliant by comparison. (Not that he isn't normally pretty brilliant anyway.)
I hope Harry Shearer shows up next week so they can do an installment of the male synchronized swimmers.
R61, you should write for Jay Leno.
R51, do you not have a DVR?
Foxx seemed pissed off about something.
I like Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader and Cecily Strong a lot. They deserve better material than this.
Always record this on my dvr so I can ff through all the shitty skits/musical performances and this was the first time I ff through every single skit. I think I'm done with this show for good.
R59, totally saw the VPL. Not a huge Jamie Foxx fan but that did look nice...
