He's popular among young people. Which is kind of surprising because he's a father and part of his act is his family. You wouldn't think young, single people would connect with that subject.

Wrong, I'm a young people and I've never heard of him.

He's incredibly popular with black audiences, and is the biggest selling black comic right now. Expand your horizons.

Don't any of you watch "Real Husbands of Hollywood"? Kevin Hart is the shorty in the middle.

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.

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.

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
|by Anonymous||reply 29||03/02/2013|
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."

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.

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.

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.
|by Anonymous||reply 51||03/03/2013|
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.
|by Anonymous||reply 52||03/03/2013|
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.
|by Anonymous||reply 53||03/03/2013|
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.

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.
