Take shelter, son of Jor-El!

I still contend that there was a degree of gimmickry in having Miskell Spillman host.

I really love some of the episode descriptions of Misfits of Science

"Three Days of the Blender"

When a blender is accidentally delivered to Billy, he ends up getting arrested as a spy and Stetmeyer gets targeted by the FBI.

Okay, so Drunk Uncle killed it last night. And the opening sketch with Fox & Friends/Mitt Romney videos was outstanding. Moynihan as Kilmeade is always great.

Just FYI, Morbs, because I know you haven't tuned in for a while, but this thread is about a different SNL than the Cosell show that you're familiar with.

they've been airing live 30-minute "thursday election specials" in one of the sitcom timeslots, mostly update desk w/ a political sketch here and there. did the same thing in '08.

some dude, Friday, 28 September 2012 13:36 (six years ago) link

ah, I remember the 08 ones. Nice! I'll seek them out and catch up.

haha yesss

Given that it was just a week and change away with no announcement, I suspected that they were having trouble pinning down a host for the post-Daniel Craig episode. Bruno Mars pulling double duty would seem to confirm my suspicions.

Old Lunch, Tuesday, 2 October 2012 00:02 (six years ago) link

yeah BM as host is worrying, i'm sure HE thinks he's funny but who knows

glad Christina Applegate is finally hosting again, which she hasn't done since way back in the Married With Children days

jaz a make wardance (some dude), Tuesday, 2 October 2012 00:23 (six years ago) link

Oh, I didn't see that bit. Totally okay with Applegate.

AV Club looks back at '85-'86 season. And holy shit, I don't remember this sketch at all:

this season’s Christmas episode opens with Wayans and Vance performing the “Wrapper Rap,” a Christmas wrap-themed rap song that’s maybe the most racist thing ever, and that includes Jim Crow laws, the political careers of Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms, and the founding of the Ku Klux Klan. I suspect that if the heads of the American Nazi Party were to watch the sketch, even they’d say, “Jeez, we would never insult the dignity of human beings that way.”

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 17:05 (six years ago) link

We are more than due for another weird failure of a season like that one. I'd say the cast changes have been so gradual, there hasn't been an awkward season like that since the mid-90s.

pplains, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:00 (six years ago) link

Well yeah, you only wind up with a season like that when an entire cast gets sacked and a new one comes in. 1980. 1985. 1995.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:09 (six years ago) link

Speaking of 1995, I never knew about this:

The season was also home to the Rage Against the Machine incident. On April 13, 1996, the band was the musical guest, and was scheduled to perform two songs. The show was hosted that night by ex-Republican presidential candidate and billionaire Steve Forbes. According to RATM guitarist Tom Morello, "RATM wanted to stand in sharp juxtaposition to a billionaire telling jokes and promoting his flat tax by making our own statement."[2] To this end, the band hung two upside-down American flags from their amplifiers. Seconds before they took the stage to perform "Bulls on Parade", SNL and NBC sent stagehands in to pull the flags down.[3] Following the removal of the flags during the first performance, the band was approached by SNL and NBC officials and ordered to immediately leave the building. Upon hearing this, bassist Tim Commerford reportedly stormed Forbes' dressing room, throwing shreds from one of the torn down flags. Morello noted that members of the Saturday Night Live cast and crew, whom he declined to name, "expressed solidarity with our actions, and a sense of shame that their show had censored the performance."[2]

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:12 (six years ago) link

i remember that episode, i think i taped it

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:13 (six years ago) link

So, wait. Is there really a clip somewhere out there of Steve Forbes saying, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Rage Against the Machine!"

pplains, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:14 (six years ago) link

Drunk Uncle was particularly good. "You are not a genius. You are in a t-shirt."

flavor blasted (kenan), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:47 (six years ago) link

is michaels more ruthless about getting rid of & replacing people one by one now than in the past? jenny slate, paul brittan, the 'bitch please' woman. dunno how it was in the past.

goole, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:49 (six years ago) link

I'm still sore about Michaela Watkins getting released. (Casey Wilson too, but that turned out alright thanks to Happy Endings.)
