    Didn't recognize the guy.
    During The Californians Armisen was laughing uncontrollably
    Not a very good episode

    I cant remember the last time I watched Saturday Night Live and said that was a good show. I still don't understand how Mad TV couldn't beat them in the ratings.

    Mad TV is taped in advance. SNL is live.

    Live --> Taped

    The only good thing in last night's show was Gov. Christie. Renner was very stiff. I guess he sings OK, but wgas? I guess they don't try too hard when there's a holiday break coming up... :dontknow:

    Renner isn't meant for comedy. Wasn't a great episode

    Recipe for SNL shit show. Start singing in the introduction. Make your first skit Fred Armisen centric.

    Fred Armisen is about the only funny one left on the show. The new guy (according to Robin) Bill Hader is always good. I like the new lesbo chick too. She does a great Ellen.

    It sucked, Maroon 5 looked like another gay boy band. I can't believe they dressed the same.

    What exactly has Fred Armisen been funny in?

    when they sing a song that they make up lyrics to?
    The Californians?
    The dictators friend who whispers?
    they gay lumberjack?

    I liked his
    Gaddafi and when he does the insensitive talk show host. He is slightly better than Chris Katan.

    The problem with 90% of the SNL bits is even if they are accurate, they are not funny.

    Never been to California, that might be the way some of them talk, but the skit itself is annoying, it doesnt make me laugh.

    Same problem with the Obama impressions, they may be dead on, but the material sucks.

    Jay Pararoh did NAIL Katt Williams, i thought that was semi funny. (during the news, it was the only skit worth watching that night)

    SNL isn't relevant anymore. People use to actually stay home on a Saturday night to watch it. Now they can go online and pull clips if they want. The key to a good skit is to keep it short! Some drag on and on and kill the joke.

    That's b/c NBC shoots them down as soon as they go up

    The guy who did Katt Williams is awesome at doing impressions. His Stephen A Smith was dead on as well.

    I'm a huge fan of Renners films but last night just didn't work for him

    The only ones who seem to be trying anymore are Taran Killam & Bobby Moynihan
