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.

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 Anonymous||reply 37||12/09/2012|
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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.)
