Andy Samberg returns.

Planned sketches:

Come on Down to Omelet Town

Dick in a Box 2

Single Ladies with Timberlake, Samberg, Bobby Moynihan, Jason Sudoku, and surprise guest Tatum Channing in leotards.

Motherf*cker Returns

Musical Guest: Justin Timberlake

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10703/16/2013

Stephon is also going to make his debut off of Weekend Update starring in his own sketch with Timberlake at a club.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 103/09/2013

How Edgy!

by Lauren Michaelsreply 203/09/2013

Fuck you, R2. Dick in a Box redefined a generation. Single Ladies catapulted Beyonce's career and Omelet Town is the height of hilarity.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 303/09/2013

On in 10 minutes...

by Lauren Michaelsreply 403/09/2013

Oh great, a song and dance opening monolog?

by Lauren Michaelsreply 503/09/2013

They've done the 5-timers club before. This isn't funny and Ackroyd is huge!

by Lauren Michaelsreply 603/10/2013

He's hosted 5 times? 09, '11 and now.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 703/10/2013

So far pretty good. Great opening with previous hosts with at least 5 times. Candice Bergen looks old and if they didn't announce who she was, I would never have known. At first I thought it was Jane Curtin.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 803/10/2013

Who has Timberlake been screwing at NBC to get so many guest stars within the first 20 minutes?

Next week is "Timberweek" and he will be on the Jimmy Fallon show every night, all week long?

by Lauren Michaelsreply 903/10/2013

I think NBC is testing him on Fallon to see if he could replace the weak Fallon.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1003/10/2013

Taran Lillam is hot without a shirt.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1103/10/2013

"Sober Caligula" sank like a stone, and the performers were very aware of that.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1203/10/2013

Fantastic show tonight from beginning to end.

One of the best ever.

Loved Justin Timberlake and the sketches were great.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1303/10/2013

Same here, R13, except for the Nova Ring.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1403/10/2013


by Lauren Michaelsreply 1503/10/2013

Why is Timberlake trying to be a crooner now. He's trying to be Michael Bubble and Robin Thicke.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1603/10/2013

He looks like a crooner

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1703/10/2013


by Lauren Michaelsreply 1803/10/2013

The show was entertaining and it was nice to see Akroyd and Martin reprise Two Wild and Crazy Guys. I even liked Suit and Tie until JayZzz showed up and ruined a pretty good song. Loved the dancers and JT's band. Melissa McCarthy is going to host in April. She was a strong guest host. Why is the out Lesbian cast member getting so little show time? She's one of their more talented players.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 1903/10/2013

Why is JZ famous? Can anyone tell me? He is a very unattractive man.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2003/10/2013

R16, nothing Justin does fits the label 'crooner'.

You are wildly off the mark.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2103/10/2013

Was Timberlake lip-syncing the second song? When he hit the first chorus he turned away from the mic and wasn't moving his lips but you could still hear his voice.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2203/10/2013

I have terrible gaydar, but Timberlake pings like Big Ben to me.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2303/10/2013

[quote]Candice Bergen looks old and if they didn't announce who she was, I would never have known. At first I thought it was Jane Curtin.

Me too! I thought it was Curtin until she spoke.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2403/10/2013

For whatever reason, Jane Curtin will never come back to SNL. She did not appear for any of the anniversary specials.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2503/10/2013

That was what surprised me, r25 -- the thought that Curtin would come back to do a sketch that Chevy Chase appeared in.

Aykroyd looked terrible, but so did Chase.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2603/10/2013

On the other hand, it was amazing to me how great Martin Short and Steve Martin looked--trim and handsome (though I think Short wears a rug), they both could pass for men in their 40s.

But Aykroyd, Chase, and Hanks had all aged terribly... Aykroyd looks like Jabba the Hutt.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2703/10/2013

NBC should get on its corporate knees and kiss Lorne Michaels' ass. Saturday Night Live is practically the only successful scripted show on that pathetic excuse of a network.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2803/10/2013

Correction, Pantsy-SNL is the highest rated program on NBC now. Period.

Chicago Fire and Law & Order: SVU are NBC's highest rated scripted series.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 2903/10/2013

And I love me some Jesse Spencer. They've got to work on losing his shirt, though. I don't much go for blonds, but oh, how I'd like to fuck him.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3003/10/2013

Honky Tonk Bar Fight Airlines

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3103/10/2013

NY's hottest club is...

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3203/10/2013

Come on down to Vegan Town.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3303/10/2013

Can't believe the nerve of that little bitch dissing Kanye/"rappers". What an ingrate.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3403/10/2013

That was a tour de force.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3503/10/2013

The dating game was fun and, as always, all the homoerotic interaction involving JT, Sandberg, Bill Hader, Seth Mayer, or that new young kid who's always getting naked, are always welcome. Hell, even Bobby Moynihan was looking good (he's talented and funny). And I'd still do Aykroyd.

My only complaint is that tired 5 club. I haven't seen so many wrinkles and white hair in one room since the last State of the Union.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3603/10/2013

Timberlake was definitely "crooning" his second song. And both songs were lousy.

It's "Veganville."

JT is touring with Jay-Z. That's all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. IOW: JT is now all over like....well, he's all over because he paid his penance in his post-Janet musical exile.

I don't normally watch SNL, so was "Stefon" hiding laughter at his own jokes, or is the hidden face thing part of the character? Either way, it's stupid. But "MARY!" was funny.

Aside from seeing the esteemed "5-Timers," I don't think the show met anyone's probably-great expectations for "one for the books."

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3703/10/2013

Stefon's face-hiding thing started to cover his laughter, but now he uses it as a device and it's stupid.

Paul Simon has really let himself go.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3803/10/2013

If I received his dick in a box, I'd send the sub standard offering back.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 3903/10/2013

This was one of the most boring episodes in about 5 years

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4003/11/2013

R25, didn't Jane come back for the 15th anniversary in 1990?

I think she and Lorraine Newman did a tribute to Gilda.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4103/11/2013

[quote]Why is JZ famous? Can anyone tell me? He is a very unattractive man.

Funny, this is exactly how I feel about Timberlake.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4303/11/2013

SNL enjoyed the highest ratings of the year, thanks to Timberlake and all the cameos.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4403/11/2013

it was the best SNL in years. JT is hot, fuckable, and (allegedly) very gay.

Jay Z and Justin are taking a page from Madge's book: corporate saturation and then go where the $ is: touring.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4503/11/2013

Watching old Chevy Chase try to be funny with that phone was painful.

I thought it was very telling that they didn't use him in any other skits.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4603/11/2013

Actually, Chevy Chase appeared with Steve Martin and Martin Short, as the Three Amigos, to introduce JT's second musical number.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4703/11/2013

R47: That wasn't a skit. And Chevy looked pissed off, refusing to do the hand gestures of The Three Amigos.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4803/11/2013


Stop telling tells out of school. It was one of the lowest rated SNL episodes of the season.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 4903/11/2013

Juarez douche, R49.

JT delivered SNL's highest ratings in 14 months. So suck on that down in Veganville.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5003/11/2013

Justin is okay, he's not the genius people try to make of him, he just doesn't give a fuck and goes all out. He's not worried about embarrassing himself (see this picture). That goes a long way.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5103/11/2013

[quote]I have terrible gaydar, but Timberlake pings like Big Ben to me.

Yes, you do have terrible gaydar.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5203/11/2013

such a douche he is

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5303/11/2013

Stephon the Movie is coming.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5403/11/2013

Man, in that one skit towards the end, where JT was in cutoffs - I almost saw up his shorts when he was getting off that table. Too dark to see anything... Fucking guy is HOT TO DEATH. Great tight pants in his musical numbers, sweet little ass.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5503/11/2013

OMG r55 - I saw it on Hulu and kept rewinding the moment where he spun on the table and stood up, hoping for a peek of what looked like a massive crotch.

Alas, I had to remain content with seeing, for a change, a hottie with nice legs wearing short cut-offs 70's style.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5603/11/2013

Justin Timberlake is freakishly talented. That man can do ANYTHING. Brilliant!

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5703/11/2013

The Rom Com ad was also very funny

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5803/11/2013

[quote]he paid his penance in his post-Janet musical exile.

Did he? As I recall, after his little wimpy on-camera interview in which he proceeded to throw Janet under the bus, he was immediately let off the hook by the media, which was only too happy to let the Evil Black Woman take the fall for the Poor Innocent White Boy trapped in her clutches. If Justin paid any "penance," it lasted all of a week and then he was back in (white) America's good graces while JJ's career was left in the dust -- from which it's never really recovered -- an eternal noose around her neck while it barely gets mentioned anymore in regards to JT.

So depending on what one thinks of as "penance" -- his stock going up and up while hers went down and down -- one could hardly say he's paid any and he most likely never will.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 5903/11/2013

Uh oh - Janbot in three, two, one...

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6003/11/2013

Which one of the female cast members is a lesbian?

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6103/11/2013

Kate McKinnon, talented and blonde, r61

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6203/11/2013

is Stefon on datalounge...he said Mary!

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6303/11/2013

[quote]Justin Timberlake is freakishly talented. That man can do ANYTHING.

Except act.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6403/11/2013

I agree with you R59. Her career has never been same but that joke Timberlake got off unscathed. Even after throwing her into the fire. I also never believed he was into Britney Spears. She was the biggest thing going and hooking up with her helped him become the stand out in his stupid little boy band. Then when she "cheated " on him. He was hardly polite about it. Like he wasn't fucking around with his little boyfriends? Please. The guy is a talentless pig. Janet has been too much a lady not to call him out. His fallout is way overdue.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6503/11/2013

I never had much interest in Timberlake before, too boyish for my taste. He did a great job on SNL - funny and hot to death.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6603/11/2013

I don't agree R66. I think he's untalented and fugly as hell. To each his own I guess.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6703/11/2013

Seth: "I'm going to Mexico with my girlfriend."

Stefon: "To KILL your girlfriend?"

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6803/11/2013

I have a love/hate relationship with this bitch. The thing is I like his music and while I've found him very hot before he can look busted in the face and an actual troll on screen.

He can get away with being a pop prince but he can't cut it in Hollywood, he's all wrong and is so not a movie star, his old pal Ryan Gosling to name one makes mincemeat of him, he's clearly jealous of him. I'm also sick of him on SNL and the like, he tries too hard.. he also was like that on his recent Jonathan Ross appearance.

I wish he would stick to the music, but the new stuff hasn't wowed we like the last album. For a start that falsetto is really tired. You have to be Barry Gibb or Smokey Robinson to get away with that. That said, on new hyped song "Mirrors" he sounds whiny as hell and just as high pitched without the falsetto.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 6903/12/2013

The main thing I learned is that Paul Simon is really, really short.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7003/12/2013

[quote]Stefon: "To KILL your girlfriend?"

You forgot (*crosses fingers*)

Also, those of you who think Datalounge invented "MARY!" need to turn in your gay card, or at the very least have an ocassional conversation with someone past the age of 25.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7103/12/2013

R59, what would you like to have seen happen to Justin as a result of the "wardrobe malfunction"?

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7203/12/2013

Like his generation, modestly talented and promoted like he's great.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7303/12/2013

How about being called out on ripping off her brother's voice and dance moves? How about being called out for LYING about it and blaming it solely on her? How about him taking any kind of any responsibility?

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7403/12/2013

Why can't we have a "regular" SNL episode, with just the regular cast, guest host, and guest musical act? Why does Lorne Michaels feel he has to load up his show with countless cameos?

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7503/12/2013

Timberlake does a good job on SNL (not movies), but there is something so self-satisfied and "Aren't I GREAT?" about him on the show that he leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7603/12/2013

{R70]Shockingly short, I knew he was short but did not know he was THAT SHORT.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7703/12/2013


Then and NOW

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7803/12/2013

R76 Justin can leave a taste in my mouth anytime he likes.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 7903/12/2013

Suit and Tie is actually a real grower, but they released it at the wrong time. It's very summery and would have worked better round about spring.

Since it's not so instant it feels underwhelming and indeed the Jay-Z rap was a bad idea, the song is too downtempo for the obligatory rap in the middle and that takes out all the momentum.

[quote]Why is JZ famous? Can anyone tell me? He is a very unattractive man.

Well you don't think someone that ugly would get to the top for nothing do you? Simply cause he's the best in his field, the best rapper with a great flow.

I've liked his shit since the 90s and he always stood out. Even if you hate rap, you'd know his sound as he's so distinctive. It even makes sense why Bee is with him, she got the vital hip hop cred from him and he seems protective.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8003/12/2013

Got it, Janet troll. Justin wronged Janet by being influenced by her enormously influential brother, and by apologizing for their shared mistake while she refused to. How could he.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8103/12/2013

If it's a choice between Mrs. Wissam Al Mana and JT, I'll take JT.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8203/12/2013

What would be the best first JZ song to listen to, R80? I've literally never heard anything by him that I liked.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8303/12/2013

[quote]Funny, this is exactly how I feel about Timberlake.

Well that would make you an idiot with bad taste.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8403/12/2013

'Sexy Back'

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8503/12/2013

And front, R85.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8603/13/2013

Agree with R81.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8703/13/2013

Janet is the most talented woman in History, so just deal with it!!

by Lauren Michaelsreply 8803/13/2013


by Lauren Michaelsreply 8903/13/2013

R78, it looks as though his nipples are different sizes in those pics. How does that happen???

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9003/13/2013

[quote]How does that happen???

Same way it happens for girls. You're not necessarily done developing by the time you get your driver's license.

"Teen titties" are a very common occurrence. So is delayed chest hair. I did not sprout mine until I was 25.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9103/13/2013

[quote]it looks as though his nipples are different sizes in those pics. How does that happen???

snake-bite suction cups

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9203/13/2013

[quote]snake-bite suction cups

That really wouldn't explain how his areolas got larger.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9303/13/2013

I agree with r80. Jay Z has a great flow, clever with words and sounds great even when rapping about mundane stuff like girls or bling. Easily the best rapper since the deaths of Tupac and Biggie, a few like Nas tried to put up a challenge, but never quite beat him.

I think the only exposure to this genre people like r20 have is the tired & monotonous angry white boy rap of Eminem and that I stopped caring about back in 2004.

As for Timberlake, his music was OK back in the day but Robin Thicke and Bruno Mars have already done what he's trying to do, and much better. Everybody was expecting to be wowed by the new music and Suit & Tie was quite a dissapointment only cracking the billboard top 10 on the strength of the anticipation and name recognition. I think he'll need Jay Z to help fill the venues this tour.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9403/13/2013

areolas get stretched by those suction cups.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9503/13/2013

R94....The new album is already getting 10 million pre-orders on iTunes!

Face it, Justin T is a musical genius.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9603/13/2013

[quote]areolas get stretched by those suction cups.

Did not know that!

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9703/13/2013

Is it a good album r96? Most reviews aren't excited.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9803/13/2013

This album will win Grammy awards, r98.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 9903/13/2013

The Grammy awards mean shit.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10003/13/2013

R94 You actually think I would *spend money* to buy an Enema record? Oh, you make me laugh and laugh and laugh some more, you silly homosexual. Enema. HAHAHAHAAHA.

You can take your JZ love and deposit it in the Enema sewer, too.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10103/13/2013

I'm streaming the new CD on iTunes for free and the first song just goes on and on. His voice is okay. At least he sings in tune and doesn't over sing like most of his younger peers. Suit and Tie is catchy but I put it on mute when the JayZzzz rap came on. Honestly, I wouldn't have been able to identify JT as the singer if I didn't know who I was listening to. If every song is going to last ten minutes then I am going to lose interest real fast though.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10203/14/2013

The songs are probably that long to stretch the album onto 2 LPs. I've only listened to it over headphones so far, which I take off during the JZ parts. Don't know what I'll do when I listen sans headphones.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10303/14/2013

Wow, wtf is so objectionable about the Jay Z part to you all? It's fine, breaks the flow of the song a little but is hardly something to take such offense at.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10403/14/2013

It sucks, R104. Just plain eats caterpillar cunt.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10503/14/2013

"that new young kid who's always getting naked"

You mean Taran Killam, R36? I only wish it was true.

by Lauren Michaelsreply 10603/15/2013

It's being rerun tonight at 10 pm in an hour-long version. I won't be surprised if the porn star girls sketch and the Sober Caligula sketches are cut.
