    PEARL JAM!!!

    by Thrillhouse77

    My favorite band ever. I hope they kick out something interesting. If they played one song from their new album and then something like Masters of War, they would probably endear themselves to a LOT of new listeners.

  • March 13, 2010, 12:09 p.m. CST

    I like Peal Jam but....

    by WilliamZabkaRox

    Pearl Jam are a great band however they are one of the most hypocritical bands ever. This is a band that complained about Ticketmaster and their high prices and now it's nearly impossible to see them live (and it's not cheap). They complained about music videos but still make them. They even once complained about other bands covering The Who because they felt they weren't worthy enough. Again, PJ is a great band, Eddie is a talented songwriter/singer but they will never be Fugazi because Fugazi always sticks by their beliefs.

    by ShiftyEyedDog2

    When they return in April. come on, do a little research...the hosts for the next several weeks are out there long before this site ever "reveals" them

  • March 13, 2010, 12:28 p.m. CST


    by fiester

    I think Pearl Jam is probably pretty happy they are not Fugazi. Most people have actually heard of Pearl Jam.

  • March 13, 2010, 12:47 p.m. CST

    new PEARL JAM album is fuckin great!!

    by Stifler's Mom

    Fugazi has the better mission statement, but Pearl Jam makes better music. I don't give a shit about politics or principles as long as a band can kick out the fucking jams. And Pearl Jam is impossible to see live? They've toured nonstop for years and come to played every major venue in the US. If you can't find tickets anywhere, you might be retarded.

    SNL should have a "Host SNL" Contest.

    by fiester

    An American Idol style event in which the winner hosts the show--they could do it too. They've demonstrated many times in the past they can take people with no acting or theatrical background and have them host.

  • March 13, 2010, 4:08 p.m. CST


    by VitaminJ

    They do have a "Host SNL" contest. It's called show business. Recent winners include Jon Hamm and Zach Galifianakis.

    by Cadderly99

    PJ donate alot to various charities. there ticket price are high, but atleast they do things with the money. Also when your a ten club member (there fan club) when you buy tickets for a show, you pick them up the day of at the venue/ this stops people from buy the good seats and reselling them on stubhub for6 times there value. Which is what happen to every other rock band. Stubhub is legal scalpping, nothing more.

    Jude Law's redemption after screwing the nanny

    by TakingScorpiosCalls

    is now complete! A little sidekick role, then a shitty action movie star, warm our hearts on SNL, he's good to go again.

    They did a Host SNL contest in the 1970s

    by OutsideChance

    Some little old lady won it. This time they eschewed the contest and just hired Betty White.

    Repo Men

    by American Mythos

    Repo Men looks rentable. Is this the first Jude Law action flick? Maybe he's finally embracing his receding hairline ala Jason Statham and leaving his poor attempts at cinematic pretty boy behind. The last memorable Jude Law character was in Perdition. Coincidentally (or not), that film also showed us what Jude Law will look like in five years.

  • March 13, 2010, 6:21 p.m. CST

    Should've said ROAD to Perdition.

    by gotilk

    Once again, it's idiotic to expect people to watch a 30 sec ad to watch a 17 sec ad. Then again, I watched it. (the SNL ad.. I minimized the browser for the clip before it)

    Jude Law...not appealing.

    by fiester

    I cannot think of one movie he was any good in, not one.

    Pearl Jam hard to see!?!?!

    by Kief_Ledger

    Please. They tour all the time. And by the way, they're a truly talented and energetic live band. I saw them twice in August. In fact, they just announced an American tour for May. Tickets go on sale Monday. You're welcome assholes (just kidding, I love you all, yes even you, JettL)

    Massa Sketch looming...

    by secure214

    I bet they do an Eric Massa sketch (prob with Jason Sudeikis as Glenn Beck) I remember when Pearl Jam did their 1st SNL with Sharon Stone as host. Hope it's a good show tonight!

    After a great first half, this season is dead

    by JoeSixPack

    This was one of the best seasons in years, and it seems to have died after the show returned for the second half of the season. The Jon Hamm episode has been the exception. I have very low expectations for the show tonight.

  • March 13, 2010, 9:50 p.m. CST

    The Zack episode was great

    by TheSplinter

    Along with the Jon Hamm episode. I mean- Hamm and Buble (Bubbly) still makes me laugh. Let's hope tonight continues the trend.

    by anotherdeadkitten

    Cranky old man who's been watching since season 2 sez: other then Update guy and black guy from Nickelodeon, I still don't know who any of the male cast members are. And the only female one I knew was fat chick who got fired: she was sexy but, honestly, not really all that funny. Casey Wilson, See, at least I remember her name.<p>Also, all bands since New Wave sound the same and I still can't tell Pearl Melon from Blind Jam.<p>Also, Seinfeld was a b-list stand-up with a sit-com, Okay, good ratings due to a fine cast and great guest stars and writing and they quit while they were ahead, but how does that translate to Jerry being the biggest star in Hollywood - and does anyone but NBC really thing he is?<p>Also, the Iranian or Iraqi or Persian chick is hot - give me a few years and if she hangs onto the job, I may learn her name. Naseem Pederast or something?<p>Now Tina Fey could write. Having her host is cool news. But please please please, is there any possible chance that they won't have her do her impression of the losing vice presidential candidate in the last election? Old news. Like getting Lovitz to come back for another Dukakis sketch. "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy." Classic. But ancient history. "You Betcha. Maverick." Ditto.

    Leno Returns 'Tonight Show' to No. 1

    by OutsideChance Wow. Leno beats Letterman in every way possible, including the coveted 18-34 demographic. I think Leno's an ass clown and what he did to Conan was wholly shitty. At the same time, Dave's act hasn't been any good since at least when Warren Zevon died. Maybe CBS ought to dump Dave for Conan?

    by smackfu

    Jay Leno's getting great numbers again? And that proves what? That there are a whole lot of dumb, boring people in America? In it's day America's Funniest Home Videos was a top rated show, did that by any stretch of the imagination make it a good show? Bob Saget making a groan inducing one-liner after a dog pulls off a kids diaper? Or did it just prove that there are a lot of dumb, boring people in America?

    What's the outside chance you are really Coughlin's Laws? <P> What's the Outside Chance you are on Jay Leno's payroll? <P> What's the Outside Chance you have a really, really big chin?

    I think Leno's a tool. I think what he did to Conan sucks. But he's beating that other tool Letterman's ass.

    seriously cool question

    by VikkiMarsdale

    Here's a real question for AICN, though not about SNL. I saw one of those "Crazy King" BK commercials with a chubby blonde with a squeaky voice and wondered "Is that Victoria Jackson?" This week they aired a different add and the blonde housewife tuype in it looked familiar and (after looking p her name) I wondered "Was that Kimmy Robertson (Lucy from Twin Peaks, nerdy girl from Last American Virgin). Yes that would qualify as Cool news, what with Twin Peaks still being one of the top ten best shows ever on TV.<p>Does anyone know (or know how to find out) if that was Kimmy Robertson in that current BK ad? Because if it is, she's held up pretty well for 56.<p>By the way, to chime in on the discussion here, I'm 57 and Craig Ferguson has the only good Talk Show on late night TV. Or, well, all TV if you want to include OprahEllenView etc.

    If you think Leno's a tool

    by Bass Ackwards

    But you waste your time popping into random talkbacks to boast about his ratings, that makes you just as a big a tool, if not bigger.

    Boombox is the best song off Incredibad

    by Tall_Boy66

    I'm so psyched they finally made a digital short of it, it was one of the few songs that they didn't do as a previous DS before Lonely Island released the album. I've seriously watched it at least 6 times already since I DL'ed the episode. Amazing. "The music washed away all their hate/and society started advancing"
