Does the OP actually think he is smart by starting a post wondering about the decision-making of "Lauren" ? The OP does not know who Kevin Hart is and he posts on this thread?
I am a 48 year old white guy and even I know the funny, funny Kevin Hart.
Hey OP, would it help you to know he played on a few episodes of Modern Family as Phil's neighbor?
Is that blandly white enough for you?
Isn't he only popular from those Medea and Steve Harvey movies or WB shows? Of course most people won't know who he is unless they kept up with black media.
So I guess Sudeikis is staying for the entire season now? I thought I'd read he was leaving right after the election.
"Lauren" is what Justin Bieber called him. It's a joke.
Leave and do what? Be unemployed? Be another Andy Samburg?
I love that show, r6.
R10 Sadly most black performers are only known for Medea and Steve Harvey movies or WB shows.
Is Don Pardo sick or dying? I know he's in his 90s. That didn't sound like Pardo doing the announcing. Sounded like someone trying to impersonate Don Pardo.
Was that Don Pardo doing the intros to SNL? It sounded like someone doing a Pardo impression.
Opening monologue was funny.
Kevin was hysterical as the Smart Tech shopper who was trying to get a discount and ended up threatening Steve Carell in 40 Year Old Virgin.
Kevin was good in SOUL PLANE.
(.. but M'onique stole the show.)
Who the fuck is he?
What the fuck is this now?
I can't understand a word that the white rapper has said.
Some of these people SNL digs up for musical guests are just ... astounding.
OMG! Vanilla Ice is back!
Mackelmore has some twink looking legs.
I'm attracted to this outfit, and I hate myself for that. But I would def. let him stick it in if he promised to wear that jacket
Macklemore was disappointing. "Thrift Shop" is actually a fun, witty song (and video). But none of the lyrics landed in that performance at all. And he can't dance. And he's not as attractive as he thinks he is.
Anytime SNL has a black host, I always think about Ellen Cleghorne, who said she used to rejoice whenever a black guy was hosting "because that meant [in all the sketches that week] I got to play the wife."
Lauren Tewes is the new showrunner of SNL, but yu have to keep her away from the cocaine.
Hold Up, wait a minute.
I suddenly just realise that SNL has no Black females.
Justin Timberlake is host and musical guest next week and those shows are always great.
Don Pardo doesn't do the live announcements anymore - too old. That's BILL HADER doing his Don Pardo impression.
They need to bring back Bill Hader's Italian talk show host, he's definitely the most talented on the show.
The Timberlake show won't be nearly as good without Andy Samberg and Lonely Island.
No more Dick in a box...

A fork into his rugelach, Rose!
R39, I'm sure with Timberlake in the house, Samberg and his Lonely Island buddies will likely pop in as well.
This Kevin Hart is a tiny little man.
Every channel I turn to has another black face. I like color TV but colored TV seems a bit racist.
I'm tired of seeing ghostly pale whitey face every channel I turn but hey, you don't hear me complaining..
[quote]Hold Up, wait a minute. I suddenly just realise that SNL has no Black females. Sad
Yeah, they do. That Nashim girl. And Mayo Rudoplh.
Can you not say "God Damn" on TV? Why was it censored?
[quote]Yeah, they do. That Nashim girl. And Mayo Rudoplh.
If you're talking about Nasim Pedrad, she's Iranian (raised in California) and Maya Rudolph has not been a regular for years, so no, they presently have no black female cast members.
And yes, that is pretty sad.
So is President Obama, R48.
But he self-identifies as black, as does Maya.
Mayo is not half white.
Interesting that there are 50 replies, but none about the actual show last night. Definitely the worst of the season (so far). I didn't have much hope after the first sketch (steve harvey) was pathetic.
I sat through an unfunny Barack Obama skit. Then an interminable opening monologue, one of those "story jokes" where you wait 7 minutes and then there is a sort of punchline. Then there was an unfunny skit with that fat black guy regular, who does every character the same- from Star Jones to Al Sharpton. Turned it off and went to bed.
But that's further than I usually get.
I've never heard of him, but it was the funniest monologue in a loooong time. No stupid song & dance, no celeb reading from cue cards and carefully skewering some public perception: just jokes. I liked it.
Also, that Really!? was tepid, and it could've been epic.
Oh, please, when Timberlake hosts they'll do the same three skits they've done every other time he's hosted, which is a shame because he's very funny and it would be interesting to see him do something new.
WORST SNL EVER.
Couldn't fast forward past the musical guest quick enough
I bet Samberg will be there next week with his buddy Timberlake.
wow, some of you live in such a Lilly White prissy bubble. Kevin Hart is extremely popular right now, the "it" comic. He has been so for a while. Most young white know this because they do not wall themselves away from Urban culture; they embrace it. As for Macklemore, he probably the most popular new artist on the scene now. His song "Thrift Shop" held the number one spot on the charts for weeks.
Ratings were up with Hart and Macklemore. Young people love them.
I'm in my twenties, and I'd never heard of Macklemore until I watched that show. He must be some kind of NYC hipster act.
That I know of, Kevin has NEVER done a Madea movie. OP (and others here) is an ass. And Kevin is a very funny little guy.
KEVIN HART=PAINFULLY & ANNOYINGLY UNFUNNY
[R61] You're painfully annoying and unfunny.
Kevin Hart was showing much vpl during the James Brown skit.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
