    Louis C. K. is tonight's host.

    Louis just delivered a totally lousy monolog...not one laugh here...weird child molester jokes.

    Me too. I know he is considered to be a top comedian, watched a few episodes of his TV show and didn't think it was real funny. I thought maybe I missed something, I was happy when I turned on SNL tonight and saw he was hosting hoping for some laughs, none yet.

    Louis CK is extremely overrated.

    Remember how bad Pootie Tang flopped? These days if you released a movie with a Louis/Louie C.K. screenwriting credit it'd be an automatic 100% fresh rating at RottenTomatoes.

    What's the deal? Was he just... not funny prior to 2013?

    His humor is dry and sarcastic... not well suited to TV. I get him and think he's funny, but his show is not working.

    That HBO sitcom he had was unwatchable. Depressing and unfunny. Poor people acting miserable isn't funny.

    Yeah, I'm sort of baffled by Louis, as well. I watch his show, but only because I find it strangely bewildering. It is NOT a comedy on any level.

    Ever since he beat up Nick Di Paolo, I haven't liked him.

    I like Louis CK but his show has taken a serious slide this season...it's all weird and dark and not funny at all. His monologue tonight started out ok but then went into WTF mode. And Leslie Jones fucked up her lines again...shocker.

    I will watch it this morning. I saw him start the monologue last night and I turned the TV off....then when I turned it on again I saw the"bitch better have my money" driving.
    And I did notice that this time Michael Che said ASKED, not AKSED, thank goodness.

    I was a big fan, but saw him on tour last year and it was like he was just phoning it in. His set was nothing short of woefully disappointing and nearly awful. Aziz Ansari was also on the bill and made up for Louis C.K. I agree with some of the comment above that his dry style really can be tough to translate on TV. Last season of his FX show was flat out depressing.

    louie is okay. i'd say he's a pretty solid comic. he's definitely overrated, but it's not like he's chelsea handler or dane cook

    his show is awful. whiny, narcissistic, and vapid

    It is so odd this season. I was thrilled when Pamela came onscreen because I'd at least have a laugh, but then that got all heavy and strange as well.

    If Leslie Jones is back next season there's no doubt she has a photo of Lorne with a dead prostitute or a chicken.

    She is the most unwatchable human being on TV in the last 30 years.
