pharoah's obama wasn't bad but understandably tentative. i just hope he gets more comfortable with the role before the debate sketches - you can't have romney being more smooth than obama

Romney hi-fiving dude's head was fantastic

I totally forgot this was on. Doesn't SNL normally start up in October?

I hate Seth MacFarlane but I thought he did a pretty good job.

heated debate over derpy hooves (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 17 September 2012 14:37 (six years ago) Permalink

A little inside baseball here, but it made me really happy to see Vanessa Bayer working with puppets again (as she used to be a performer for iO's hilarious improv puppet show, Felt). And that sketch was the highlight of the night, imo.

I was also pleasantly surprised with MacFarlane. Especially since his monologue seemed like a harbinger of intolerable punchability.

no joke, this was one of the main stories of the Olympics in the US

Lochte=Himbo was pretty much the only thing I picked up about the Olympics

wow ive never even heard of tom hiddleston

i've heard the name but i'm not sure who it is? *googles* ohhhhhh it's loki, yeah that's all tumblr's doing.

Don't know shit about Loki, prefer to think of him as the guy from The Deep Blue Sea (not the idiot shark movie) and War Horse.

I guess we are in our last months of Michael Shannon being anything but General Zod? Fuck eternal teenagerdom.

Your capacity to complain about things that haven't happened yet is amazing.

It's not like there isn't precedent. Who can even remember the name of that dude who played Lex Luthor in the '70s Superman films?!

(This is the "complain about the typecasting of Superman actors" thread, right?)

not really comparable stages of their careers, bro. So Old Lunch is the really unfunny ex-improv guy from the comedy film poll?

It would make more sense for Shannon to play Non.

for some reason i remembered that one week they had nancy kerrigan hosting. when's the most recent example of this kind of thing?
(blatant ratings stunt grab)

Philip Nunez, Monday, 17 September 2012 19:52 (six years ago) Permalink

i suppose one could make an argument for lindsay lohan last year, though she hosted in happier times as well

Betty White

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Monday, 17 September 2012 19:56 (six years ago) Permalink

xpost

Betty White? Michael Phelps?

And yes, Morbs, one and the same. I'm working on a silent film, though, so maybe you'll come around to my comedic stylings.

Old Lunch, Monday, 17 September 2012 19:57 (six years ago) Permalink

the problem with saying which hosts are "rating stunts grab" is that they rarely pick hosts they don't HOPE will bring some ratings - i mean does eli manning count?

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 19:58 (six years ago) Permalink

i mean nobody clubbed betty white or michael phelps in the kneecaps. i think you'd need to go octomom to get a similar level of salaciousness, but did that ever materialize?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:00 (six years ago) Permalink

Kerrigan was a world class athlete, not just some lady in the news

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Monday, 17 September 2012 20:01 (six years ago) Permalink

I don't even like Nancy Kerrigan and I would default to "Olympic Medalist" before "victim of Jeff Gillooly"

wtf where's my chapbook (DJP), Monday, 17 September 2012 20:03 (six years ago) Permalink

now if they'd gotten tonya harding to host, that'd be something

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:03 (six years ago) Permalink

tonya harding wasn't that bad a skater either, though?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:04 (six years ago) Permalink

yes but she's the one that fucked up royally, where kerrigan fits in with all the olympians and league champs who've hosted on a regular basis for decades

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:16 (six years ago) Permalink

also Betty White is a talented comic performer as opposed to say Katherine Heigl

kizz my hairy irish azz (Dr Morbius), Monday, 17 September 2012 20:18 (six years ago) Permalink

kerrigan's no more salacious a host than say anne hathaway when she did her whole "lol i dated a con artist" bit

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:19 (six years ago) Permalink

Betty White is great but she wasn't promoting anything or in the news. She was on purely because of a semi-ironic Facebook campaign.

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Monday, 17 September 2012 20:20 (six years ago) Permalink

To Kerrigan's credit, she wasn't the worst host i've ever seen on SNL, but it's a fair wager that she'd never have been asked on without the ghoulish spectre surrounding her. Was Kristi Yamaguchi ever asked to host?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:21 (six years ago) Permalink

do you have a point?

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:25 (six years ago) Permalink

She was on purely because of a semi-ironic Facebook campaign.

I participated in that irony-free, fwiw.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:27 (six years ago) Permalink

kerrigan is one of many celebrity sports figures who hosted, and one of many who had some unpleasant business to lol about in her monologue - hard to really argue she was ONLY brought on for the latter and not the former.

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:29 (six years ago) Permalink

i really got that impression though. the other athletes that got asked on don't seem to fit the profile.

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Monday, 17 September 2012 20:35 (six years ago) Permalink

if that's in ref to what i wrote, i wasn't saying the latter group were a subset of the former. There are sports figures who host and blushing "well THAT happened" celebs who host and Kerrigan fits into both

da croupier, Monday, 17 September 2012 20:35 (six years ago) Permalink

lol I meant Montana obv, not Namath
