I've never heard Fun before but they sound like Glass Tiger.

lil wahlberg looked coked up as fuck

i've grown accustomed to her face tat (m bison), Sunday, 4 November 2012 04:11 (nine years ago) link

girl you wish you hadn't started a conversation with is still good, at least.

also yeah lincoln was good.

s.clover, Sunday, 4 November 2012 04:26 (nine years ago) link

"lincoln" was kinda legendary

lil dirk (J0rdan S.), Sunday, 4 November 2012 04:27 (nine years ago) link

man there's like what six segments on this show? kind of weak sauce

Infamous dickbiscuits (silby), Sunday, 4 November 2012 05:01 (nine years ago) link

the closing sketch was finally solid and fitting to the host w/o just being a riff on his show. i'm really fond of the bar closing genre of sketches actually. tina fey's tiny hooker sketch is still hilarious to me.

The Viking horn going wasn't funny at all.

This Is Not An ILX Username (LaMonte), Sunday, 4 November 2012 05:07 (nine years ago) link

Kind of liked the Viking horn! Reminded me of early Woody Allen, in a way.

Sandy Denny Real Estate (jaymc), Sunday, 4 November 2012 05:13 (nine years ago) link

Viking horn wasn't funny but wasn't actively bad. Hotel kind of a non-sketch. Lincoln and that final bar sketch were the only real keepers, though Fox and Friends is always worth something.

Gukbe, Sunday, 4 November 2012 05:15 (nine years ago) link

I liked the Viking horn thing but that genre of sketch, fantasy/sci-fi/occult/whatever characters being just regular dudes is getting real long in the tooth.

Fun apparently raided grandpa's closet and also sucked.

I don't watch much SNL through the year, but I try to watch through Weekend Update during an election year. The Lincoln sketch was great--surreal enough that I'd have a hard time to describing it to someone. First time I've seen the woman-you-avoid-at-a-party, and that ought to go into a 2012 time capsule. (Was going to allude to someone I know who she reminded me of, but I don't think I will.) I really like Sudeikis's Romney. It's not even close to an impression, but his Andy Hardy cheerfulness kills me. Loved when he took the can of soup back.

Waiting for the day when woman you met at a party meets drunk uncle.

dan selzer, Sunday, 4 November 2012 14:59 (nine years ago) link

I was thinking about that last night. Very similar characters.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 4 November 2012 15:24 (nine years ago) link

nicholas fehn should be there too

mizzell, Sunday, 4 November 2012 15:58 (nine years ago) link

so glad silby is here to be the "I havent watched SNL since 1986 is this STILL ON is it ALWAYS THIS BAD" that every message board has

Mr. Zone A (Whiney G. Weingarten), Sunday, 4 November 2012 17:43 (nine years ago) link

hotel sketch was like a Monty Python sketch totally beamed in from another era

Mr. Zone A (Whiney G. Weingarten), Sunday, 4 November 2012 17:43 (nine years ago) link

^^ I agree with that, also I wasn't alive in 1986!

Infamous dickbiscuits (silby), Sunday, 4 November 2012 17:47 (nine years ago) link

About the only casualty from Tuesday night I will miss:

I'd like to think there's going to be some kind of Mitt sendoff tonight.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 10 November 2012 16:03 (nine years ago) link

I think it'd be hilarious if they just kept Mitt Romney on and made him a reoccurring character.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 10 November 2012 16:06 (nine years ago) link

Wasn't crazy about Sudekis' impression during the primaries, but the moments starting at 2:12 won me over this fall.

My favourite was the opening show this season, where they'd cut from Obama to his "secret weapon," and you'd get Romney singing "Old MacDonald" at a town hall. It was a week or two before the first debate, when everything was going wrong for Romney. I can't find the clip on YouTube.

clemenza, Saturday, 10 November 2012 16:30 (nine years ago) link

Romney hi-fiving dude's head was fantastic

What in the hell

Panaïs Pnin (The Yellow Kid), Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:09 (nine years ago) link

retro CGI was awesome i thought.

s.clover, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:12 (nine years ago) link

Classic Windows screensaver

she started dancing to that (Finefinemusic), Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:13 (nine years ago) link

I kinda liked it actually, but I can't remember SNL ever doing anything like that before

Panaïs Pnin (The Yellow Kid), Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:14 (nine years ago) link

pretty sure i made that video at Six Flags Georgia on my 8th grade trip back in 1996, but the song was by Offspring and there might have been a rocket ship.

Gukbe, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:18 (nine years ago) link

Kanye had a weird set up for her performance last time too, but iirc it wasn't green screen.

My wish for a whole 'Ellen' sketch came true!

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:39 (nine years ago) link

*his

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:40 (nine years ago) link

the impersonation is good, but they really don't know what to do with it.

s.clover, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:46 (nine years ago) link

Was I the only one nervously anticipating Chris Brown walking out during that second performance? I just know that douche is backstage somewhere.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:55 (nine years ago) link

So when they run a pre-recorded fake ad as the final sketch, does that mean they ran out of time?

Gukbe, Sunday, 11 November 2012 05:59 (nine years ago) link

i died @ the mcdonalds diss sketch

johnny crunch, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:08 (nine years ago) link

drunk uncle also KILLED IT

johnny crunch, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:08 (nine years ago) link

The featured ladies are sure getting a lot of screen time lately. Show needs a bit more Nasim and Vanessa.

Michael F Gill, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:13 (nine years ago) link

Not having ever watched Homeland, that sketch was pretty much the impression I have of the show. It wasn't all that far off, was it?

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:27 (nine years ago) link

Can't wait for Rhianna's star turn in Tron 2: Ancient Greek Adventure.

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:47 (nine years ago) link

Rhianna worked the greenscreen well, but she can't match Insane Clown Posse.

pplains, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:56 (nine years ago) link

i had just watched homeland s1e1 earlier today and understood 98% of that parody & im not worried abt spoilers

johnny crunch, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:57 (nine years ago) link

johnny crunch, Sunday, 11 November 2012 06:57 (nine years ago) link

wow this rihanna green screen is truly one of the worst things i've ever seen

Really sad Tim Calhoun wasn't running for election this year.

dan selzer, Sunday, 11 November 2012 15:34 (nine years ago) link

Tim Calhoun: [ meekly ] I'm Tim Calhoun. And I'm running for the office of Senator. A lot of people don't know who Tim Calhoun is. So I'm going to tell you who Tim Calhoun is, and why I think Tim Calhoun should be the next senator.

I, Tim Calhoun, am.. nice.. [ flips index card ] ..trustworthy.. genuine.. likes music.. dances.. [ very quietly ] ..aggressive. [ flips index card ] I have used a lot of some drugs, and some not at all. Mainly pot and beer. But a little bit of cocaine. I'm real sorry about that cocaine. But there are times when I feel like partying and staying up realy late.. and cocaine can relaly help you do that. [ flips index card ] I am not married. So muy sexual history is not relevant. But, if you must know, I had some babies. Mainly by black ladies. But some by white. And a China baby. [ flips index card ] I love whales. But they have to go. So I'm going to organize a whaling party that will not stop until all whales are dead. [ flips index card ] America needs another big lake.

In conclusion, and in summary, you can't spell "America" without "Tim Calhoun". And the letters R, E, and A. The End.

dan selzer, Sunday, 11 November 2012 15:35 (nine years ago) link

I am Tim Calhoun, and I am running for candidate for president for America. My candidacy is based on honesty, so there are a few things about me you should know.

(pauses to look at his cards)

I've been in jail. It's not important how many times, but if you must know, let's see, one….two…thirty-one times.

(pauses again to change cards)

There are times when I'm not gay at all. But then, there are other times, I'm so gay, it more than makes up for it.

(pauses to change cards)

Here's where I stand on the issues: I'm glad that drunk driving is illegal. When I'm drunk, I drive like crap!

(pauses to change cards)

I propose, that for scientific testing purposes, we breed a type of midget even smaller than the normal midget. We can call them, “Shetland Midgets”.

(pauses to switch cards. Much longer hesitation)

There's nothing on this card.

(pauses again to switch cards)

In conclusion, and in summary, read my lips: (lip-synchs a few sentences quickly) I think that says it all. Vote for me, Tim Calhoun, for candidate for president for America for goodbye!

the new women are all pretty good imo, love the spotlight really getting shared in the post-wiig era, i imagine one of them will break away from the pack at some point but it could be practically any of them.
