Anna Faris Tonight Hosts The Last New SNL Till Sweeps!!

I am – Hercules!!

When Anna Faris hosted SNL on Sept. 28, 2008 her musical guest was Duffy. Tonight it’s Drake.

My favorite sketches from last week

The complete “Fox & Friends’” fact-check scroll:

The second president of the United States was John Quincy Adams, not Sam Adams Summer Ale.

A movie and a motion picture are the same thing.

Juice is a drinkable substance.

There are seven continents, not one thousand.

The "West Memphis Three" is not a jazz quartet.

America is not currently under a "Level 9 Liberty Alert." There is no such thing as a "Level 9 Liberty Alert."

Presidential dog "Bo" Obama does not collect Social Security checks, nor is he an undocumented Peruvian housekeeper in disguise.

Julie Andrews is an award winning British actress. She has never been on trial for kidnapping.

Windows are typically made of glass.

President Obama did not pardon Carmen San Diego.

Flu shots prevent influenza and have nothing to do with getting into heaven.

Nancy Pelosi did not appear on an episode of River Monsters.

There is not now, nor has there ever been a plan to air-condition the Grand Canyon.

Herman Cain did not invent pizza.

Christopher Columbus sailed to what is now the modern day United States in an effort to find a trade route to the West Indies. Not to flee the dragons.

No Transformers have ever been found on the moon.

Flo from the Progressive Insurance ads is a living human being, not the ghost of a Civil War widow.

Africa is widely regarded to be the origin of the human species. It was not "discovered only a handful of years ago."

Nicolas Cage did not sign the Declaration of Independence.

There is no known connection between The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Bay City Rollers.

Electric cars are not powered by electric eagles.

Carrying a child in a Baby Bjorn does not cause homosexuality, in the child or the adult.

The Washington Monument was not named after Denzel Washington. Nor was it named after the Washington Redskins.

The Pope does not hold a world record in speed skating.

Abraham Lincoln is not alive and living in Amish, Pennsylvania. There is no such place as Amish, Pennsylvania.

There are indeed several laws that prohibit pointing a gun at a mail carrier.

Vermont still exists.

There is currently no bill before the house that would mandate the eating of flan on Thanksgiving.

Mary Magdalene was not eaten by a dinosaur.

General Tso did not win the Civil War for the Confederacy.

Rick Perry was not a contestant on The Amazing Race nor was he the winner of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge.

    What a shitty blu-ray cover for Labyrinth

    by thelordofhell

    Where the fuck is the creativity? Marketing sucks in Hollywood now.

    John Quincy Adams

    by FuglyGUNT

    Pretty sure that John Quincy Adams was the sixth U.S. President. John Adams would have been the second. Also, I'm Canadian.

    I like how...

    by Voice O. Reason

    ...their Gov. Christie "endorsed" Romney just a few days before it happened in real life. The Zoolander cameo was pretty good, too. And the Fox and Friends corrections were great. Wiig's new character on Update was pretty lame. The rest of the show was just kind of there.

  • Oct. 15, 2011, 4:10 p.m. CST

    I like how I can't see any NBC clips

    by intheyear2525

    'Cause i'm in Canada..there must be metacafe or youtube versions of the clips you could link to..

    Ben Stiller looked so OLD last week...

    by Blanket-Man

    His ep wasn't nearly as enjoyable as the fat lady's the week prior. The quality of the show generally declines the more consecutive weeks that it's on live. Needless to say, my expectations are pretty low for the Anna Faris show - the 4th straight new ep. She's not exactly the type of host who could save weak material. But I'll DVR and watch it Sunday morn as usual...

  • Oct. 15, 2011, 6:54 p.m. CST

    Ben Stiller looking old....

    by Mugato5150

    It's live TV, not movies. Things like old people aren't made to look as good.

  • Oct. 15, 2011, 10:40 p.m. CST

    Plastic surgery on Anna Faris' face...yikes

    by gumbyandpokey

    Whatever she had done, it didn't turn out well. I wish I could understand the thought process...what part of her face would she have been unhappy with? And is she happy with the way she looks now?

  • But the ep was indeed very funny. Way funnier than the Bridesmaids lady. TWO SOIDS!!!

  • Oct. 15, 2011, 10:56 p.m. CST

    I hate the latin talk show sketch

    by Lukes Lost Hand

    I know "What's Up With That" is repetitive but it's funny where this is not.

    drake shoulda stuck with acting on lame canadian shows

    by Bouncy X

    rap's terrible music to begin with but this new fad where everyone sounds like lil wayne is just terrible.

  • Also I'm Canadian. So is Drake and Lorne Michaels yet I hate rap and SNL sucks balls tonight. What happened to Weekend Update? At least that use to be counted on as being the saving grace of the show. Seth Meyers just doesn't have the tone of voice for Weekend Update, plus the writing sucks. Did I mention I'm Canadian? Ontario represent.

    This J-Pop sketch has me pissing myself...

    by Jobacca

    But only because I work with two stupid fuckers that are even more ridiculous than even the characters in this sketch.

  • Oct. 15, 2011, 11:41 p.m. CST

    Bayer clearly being groomed as new Wiig

    by OutsideChance

    That is, extremely overused despite other actresses being available. And Wiig was the new Poehler.

  • Oct. 15, 2011, 11:43 p.m. CST

    Ben Stiller IS old

    by OutsideChance

    Dude is 46 years old. Realistically, he should be playing a grandfather soon, not a young dad, ala the "Focker" movies

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 12:07 a.m. CST

    Sorry, Anna Faris...

    by fuzzy_dunlop

    Your episode sucked. This season has gotten worse with every episode, which makes me sad. I really thought last season was exceptionally strong, and had high hopes for this one, but Wiig might be leaving at a good time. Just sayin'.

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 12:17 a.m. CST

    Faris was, sadly, the victim of some very bad makeup in the opener.

    by cookepuss

    She looked adorable the rest of the episode though, especially as a brunette and Sailor Moon. You gotta keep in mind that women are 90% makeup. Makeup. Fake eyelashes. Push up bras. Spanx. High Heels. Women are just one big running lie and we love `em that way. Sad, but true. Y'all would still bang Anna Faris if she said yes so don't lie. Frankly, I thought that she looked frickin' cute. Haters. All of you. Not the best episode of the season, but nothing this season has really sunk down to the lowest of the low from the past seasons. Flash back to the January Jones' ep or the one with Ashley Simpson. SNL has done a lot worse. There was still some decently funny stuff here. Just not all 100% gold. Plus, ass-tastic Nicki Minaj is always good to see in motion. There's a plus side to every so-so episode.

    SNL's future don't look too bright if Bayer is the next Wiig.

    by Shermdawg

    She's fucking terrible, hopefully either Nasim or Abby will fill that void. She's always reading the cards....and tonight, poorly flubbing up the flow of the filler GOP debate sketch, and she can't keep her mouth shut....does she really gotta grin that much? I mean really. Also terrible? This episode. God DAMN Drake is one talentless mother fucker, that second performance was possibly the most pathetic musical segments I've ever seen on SNL this side of Ashley Simpson. And the J Pop sketch!? I hope that won't be recurring. I gotta say though, I thought the "Tell Him" sketch was cute, but not funny as it could've been, and Wiig looked pretty smokin' in the latin talk show sketch, but tonight was a really weak installment. Also, another mistake from the writers....weren't Shop 'Til You Drop & Wink Martindale's Debt the first Original Lifetime game shows?

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 2:56 a.m. CST

    The "Tell Him" sketch was great

    by Flim Springfield

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 8:02 a.m. CST

    The Cecil sketch seemed stupid at the time...

    by BurnHollywood

    ...But when the ET syndicated broadcast showed Logan Lerman in some set footage from THE THREE MUSKETEERS, I immediately shouted, "I WANT SWEETS!"

    Anna Faris as sailor scout made my dick explode.

    What's with this "ep" stuff?

    by MisterManReturns

    WHO says that in everyday conversation?

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 12:32 p.m. CST

    No Vincent Price Halloween Special?!?

    by Blanket-Man

    Overall the Farris ep (which is just a lot easier to type then "episode" - it's called shorthand for a reason) was pretty mediocre. I didn't laugh once at the NY Mayor opening, the monologue was lousy (Farris looked AWFUL, as others have noted), the Lifetime game show was OK ("you stand over there and pretend to rake leaves" - ha!), the Manual Ortiz show REALLY needs to be euthanized - unlike "What Up With That" it was NEVER funny, the GOP debate was pretty good (Sudeikis's Romney is really growing on me), the Digital Short was mildly amusing (my favorite was the Close-Up), update was about a C-, the Tell Him sketch was alright, the J-Pop thing made me laugh a lot, as did the Cecil meets the parents weirdness (Sudeikis's Dad was his best work of the night, followed closely by his teacher bit on the Japanese show). I'll bet we see Cecil again. But why no Price show?!? Hader was in nearly every sketch anyway (not complaining). Glad they're taking a break - they need some time to come up with funnier material...

    Cecil-little lord Fauntleroy

    by deelzbub

    easily the funniest skit in the episode

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 12:56 p.m. CST

    Changed channels at the beginning of the Latin Talk show

    by deelzbub

    flipped back just in time to catch them all dancing off at the end Felt like I didn't miss a thing.

    Nicki Minaj's Spandex booty

    by deelzbub

    highly enjoyed

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 12:59 p.m. CST

    I also missed Vincent Price

    by deelzbub

    but Liberache (sp?) not required for every episode.

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 2:48 p.m. CST

    I've enjoyed this season

    by Bass Ackwards

    But last nights episode was terrible. Hopefully we'll soon stop hearing from the small group of people who insist Anna Faris is some great comedic talent who just hasn't found the right vehicle.

  • Oct. 16, 2011, 10:57 p.m. CST

    Nicki Minaj's Spandex booty: Part II

    by Jake Pantlin

    Yes, I was VERY impressed with that outfit too! Nice...

  • Oct. 17, 2011, 12:15 p.m. CST

    re: "Ontario Represent"

    by jim

    Or at least the 49% who can actually be arsed to make the effort.

  • Oct. 17, 2011, 5:20 p.m. CST

    Bayer sucks

    by menacingphantom

    Pretty much always terrible. Could not believe she was invited back this season given how many funny women there are these days in Second City, UCB, groundlings, baby wants candy, etc.

  • Oct. 17, 2011, 6:04 p.m. CST

    Bayer's not THAT bad guys...

    by tlyel37

    They just need to keep her out of political sketches, and she needs to be less reliant on the cue cards. But at least give her this, her Miley Cyrus is pretty hilarious.

  • Oct. 17, 2011, 6:08 p.m. CST

    Oh, and you old motherfuckers need to stop bashing hip-hop

    by tlyel37

    just because you don't understand it. Go back to your Duran Duran or Poison or whatever the fuck you think is music. Drake is as talented a rapper as they come. He's got brilliant flow, and unlike his mentor Lil Wayne he's actually got a smart head on his body. He just needs to stop pretending that he can sing.
