...with a cute little kitty cat?

You didn't say first, but you invoked the kitty cat skit...which is really a tossup as to which is worse. And once again, snl referenced Aliens AND The Thing in that skit.

but he seemed likeable in the ads. Did he say "nigga" in the last part? Saw that in an ad during "parks & rec", couldnt imagine they'd air it if thats what he actually said but cant figure out what he i really did say...
Oct. 20, 2012, 12:57 a.m. CST
Also, last week was awful.
Oct. 20, 2012, 1:26 a.m. CST
Especially with a guy that no one knows. I mean, other than teenage girls.

The cold open, weekend update, the pretaped short bits...pretty much everything except the actual live sketches was funny. So...about 18% of the show. Which is more than usual.

I much prefer the good old days where they'd have established musical guests instead of acts no one outside of NYC or LA have ever heard of. Bring on some more country artists. I still wonder if they tell the audience to really scream when the music artists are announced? If I were there I'd be going "who?"

Bruno was at one time the worlds youngest Elvis impersonator... even appeared in Honeymoon In Vegas. Not a huge fan of his, but you can't deny he has talent.
Oct. 20, 2012, 10:59 a.m. CST
In the last two years he's had three #1 singles, four top 5 singles and another top 10 single. His debut album sold over 1.5 million copies in the U.S. and 1 million in the U.K. He was nominated for 7 Grammy's this year. Have you guys heard of this person called "Lady Gaga?"
Oct. 20, 2012, 12:08 p.m. CST
I'm a little surprised to see all the "Who the hell is Bruno Mars?" posts. Hell, I'm the World's Oldest 40 Year Old and spend the better part of most days shooing pesky kids off my lawn and grumbling about Facebook and "Tweeter," and even I feel like I've been unable to escape this guy for the past couple of years.
Oct. 20, 2012, 1:33 p.m. CST
At no point were we instructed to scream.
Oct. 20, 2012, 1:54 p.m. CST
I thought they were gonna do a skit about the conspiracy theory that NASA never landed the rover on mars and is actually filming the rover in a desert out west. now that would of been hilarious. have the rover come up on campers or tourists and such.
Oct. 20, 2012, 3:02 p.m. CST
I demand it. Also, fucking Bruno Mars? Holy crap, Lorne...
Oct. 20, 2012, 4:10 p.m. CST
SNL goes to URANUS.

Tony Danza and the Go Kart of doom?! I didn't even know this show was still on...I thought they cancelled it in 2004. Fuck.
Oct. 20, 2012, 6:57 p.m. CST
Every skit will have to explain why Bruno Mars' character is wearing a fedora (I'm 90% certain it is surgically attached). Maybe they will all be set in the 30s or 40s just to simplify it.

So why not Mars? No doubt it's due for constellation - oops, I mean cancellation - by now, right?
Oct. 20, 2012, 9:45 p.m. CST
Showed he could be funny and has some musical chops.
Oct. 20, 2012, 9:57 p.m. CST
The whole "I didn't know this show was still on" bullshit is old and tired. Yes it's still on. It's been on for decades. Don't be stupid.
Oct. 20, 2012, 10:56 p.m. CST
Holy fucking shit that was BAD.
Oct. 20, 2012, 10:56 p.m. CST
Oct. 20, 2012, 11:07 p.m. CST
That was pretty funny!
Oct. 20, 2012, 11:10 p.m. CST
Not bad at all
Oct. 20, 2012, 11:19 p.m. CST
Oct. 20, 2012, 11:40 p.m. CST
Its in the top 10 of worst skits EVER

I'd love to see him and Timberlake co-host together!

SNL always slants in favor of the president.
Oct. 21, 2012, 12:38 p.m. CST
will be around until Lorne Michaels dies. Then I will take over. Also, I hear Chicago has its own SNL-type show on the way, but it's actually a morning show- Sick Day.

Oct. 21, 2012, 4:12 p.m. CST
It's way funnier.
Oct. 21, 2012, 5:31 p.m. CST
...was a great digital short. Funny and a bit sad. Also...LOUIS C.K.!! Yay!!
Oct. 21, 2012, 11:49 p.m. CST
You know, Roger Ebert warned Harry years ago about the studios doing this- not only did he not listen, it seems to be a sitewide policy. It's really too bad.

I guess, but then what's the scathing indictment against Romney that you guys are apparently seeing in these skits? As far as I can tell its just a couple of guys kind of doing impressions and being silly.

What would you do to keep dangerous assault weapons like AK-47s off the street? Nothing I would also do nothing That got a good laugh from me, beyond that I think the show is really pretty apolitical, and neither smart nor satirical, mostly silly (which is also good for a few laughs).
Oct. 22, 2012, 3:13 p.m. CST
Where they made a funny about Tagg Romney wanting to take a swing at Obama but then left out that Michelle Obama was the only person in the immediate ring of people that openly clapped for Obama during the Libya question. No cheerleading jokes, or is making fun of the administration 'not funny'? They do love to carry water for the administration, don't they?

it is usually a reflection of being dissapointed by him--not dissapointed in his politics--but his ability to get his message across in his campaign. I thought it was particulary during during the Weekend update segment. Seth suggested that the reason that Romney was ahead in the polls because only backwards losers (the ones who support Romney) would have landlines to answer polling calls. In addition, he suggested that the only reason people in rural areas were voting for Romney was because of skin color. I can't imagine him doing a joke in which he suggests that the only reason inner city voters are voting for Obama is due to skin color.
