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 it 2004 again?

His opening monologue sure seemed like it.

"How black is President Obama?"

by Anonymousreply 1212/08/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 1312/08/2012

Bitch, this first skit is already running too long bitch.

by Anonymousreply 1412/08/2012

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2012/08/2012

Can't they bring back Mary Gross? I'm sure it can't be worse than this...

by Anonymousreply 2112/08/2012

You can't say Martin Short isn't funny. I'll watch.

by Anonymousreply 2212/08/2012

What's wrong with his face? It Too gaunt or something.

by Anonymousreply 2312/08/2012

Ne-Yo has chunky thighs.

by Anonymousreply 2512/09/2012

Even the male dancers were bad.

by Anonymousreply 2612/09/2012

30 minutes to go, I'm curious how bad Jamie Foxx is.

by Anonymousreply 2712/09/2012

Male dancers?

by Anonymousreply 2812/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2912/09/2012

Why does EVERY Jamie Foxx joke have to be a racist-tinged?

by Anonymousreply 3012/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 3112/09/2012

R31, yeah, whatever happened to that Jim Carrey guy?

by Anonymousreply 3212/09/2012

Another game show parody? And yet another game show parody in the same show?

Pretty sad.

It is all about Black Power!

You guys are too white to get the humour.

by Anonymousreply 3412/09/2012

This is the worst SNL I can ever remember seeing and I've been watching since I was 5 ('86). What the fuck happened?

by Anonymousreply 3512/09/2012

Of course it is, r34!

Coming from a closted sell out it's a bit rich, too.

by Anonymousreply 3612/09/2012

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?

by Anonymousreply 3712/09/2012

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.

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!"

by Anonymousreply 4412/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 4512/09/2012

I did like the Swarovski Crystal ad at the end.

Who was the blond girl in that? She pretty much stole the sketch.

by Anonymousreply 4612/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 4712/09/2012

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

by Anonymousreply 4912/09/2012

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...

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?

by Anonymousreply 5112/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5212/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5312/09/2012

Nobody has mentioned the Alex Cross trailer, which was hilarious. The rest of the show... Not so much.

by Anonymousreply 5412/09/2012

The Swarovski bit was kinda funny and I actually LOL'd at the, what never goes out of style..ANAL line.

by Anonymousreply 5512/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 5912/09/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 6012/09/2012

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.

The Louis CK hosted ep of SNL was the funniest this season by far.

Ne Yo and his DL dancers were fat, dude.

by Anonymousreply 6312/09/2012

The Swarovski skit was probably the funniest and should've been earlier in the show.

Here is the Swarvoski sketch

The Skvarowski skit HAD to be last - the censors wouldn't allow the "anal" joke until after midnight EST.

by Anonymousreply 6612/09/2012

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 6912/09/2012

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?

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.
