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!

yeah this was amazing

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

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.

my hands tra cer (some dude), Tuesday, 13 November 2012 03:45 (nine years ago) link

It'll be McKinnon

Gukbe, Tuesday, 13 November 2012 03:46 (nine years ago) link

you may be right. Cecily Strong is great too, though.

my hands tra cer (some dude), Tuesday, 13 November 2012 04:13 (nine years ago) link

come on dude, McKinnon is stealing all the scenes breh

ya bish called wanda (Whiney G. Weingarten), Tuesday, 13 November 2012 04:34 (nine years ago) link

McDonald's sketch was a+

Raymond Cummings, Tuesday, 13 November 2012 04:38 (nine years ago) link

I don't like Anne Hathaway much, but her Katie Holmes and her Claire Danes were both pretty amazing. Especially that Holmes - she had it down perfectly.

She Got the Shakes, Tuesday, 13 November 2012 07:39 (nine years ago) link

I was on the fence about Jeremy Renner, but these are pretty fucking great

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 14 November 2012 21:23 (nine years ago) link

Why is the Ellen skit not on Hulu then?

boxall, Thursday, 15 November 2012 03:39 (nine years ago) link

music clearances, maybe?

Gukbe, Thursday, 15 November 2012 03:41 (nine years ago) link

Not that funny, maybe?

Metal Archies (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 15 November 2012 04:10 (nine years ago) link

The "your childhood home" ad was pretty spot-on writing.

s.clover, Sunday, 18 November 2012 04:57 (nine years ago) link

I'm so short my sneakers are in my drivers license photo.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 18 November 2012 05:40 (nine years ago) link

yeah excellent williams impersonation. not actually funnier or different than williams himself, just dead-on.

s.clover, Sunday, 18 November 2012 05:51 (nine years ago) link

How did Taran Killam not break in that final sketch when Hader had his hands all over him?

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:07 (nine years ago) link

He just thought about the previous 90 minutes

Panaïs Pnin (The Yellow Kid), Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:22 (nine years ago) link

Kind of shocked there was no Bobby Moynihan/Guy Fieri bit. And other than "your childhood home" and the drones cartoon, fucking dud.

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:37 (nine years ago) link

did not like the drones cartoon.

I liked the Stand Off.

dan selzer, Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:37 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I thought The Stand Off was pretty funny. Your Childhood Home was too. Drones was lame.

Kenan was in the promos with Renner, but only made one appearance in The Californians tonight, right? What a waste.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:40 (nine years ago) link

I really wish The Californians didn't exist.

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:42 (nine years ago) link

almost died during the first californians but yeah it's done

Gukbe, Sunday, 18 November 2012 06:48 (nine years ago) link

I would stan for The Californians. Before the last two.

Until the morgue sketch I think the comedic high point was Tim Robinson in drag during the Petraeus sketch. I feel like everyone's timing was a little bit off tonight or something.

Metal Archies (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Sunday, 18 November 2012 11:56 (nine years ago) link

How did Taran Killam not break in that final sketch when Hader had his hands all over him?

Killam is a total pro.

Jake Roo (jaymc), Sunday, 18 November 2012 16:04 (nine years ago) link

I think Hader must've made a bet with Killam or something, because he also tried to get him to break in The Californians (the drawn-out "yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyou").

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Sunday, 18 November 2012 17:54 (nine years ago) link

In case we weren't clear, Christie is the worst.

s.clover, Sunday, 18 November 2012 18:01 (nine years ago) link

Chris Christie
* Governor *

Clay, Sunday, 18 November 2012 21:16 (nine years ago) link

Did anyone catch the "words with friends chat" joke in the winners/losers segment?

passion it person (La Lechera), Sunday, 18 November 2012 21:30 (nine years ago) link

a+

s.clover, Sunday, 18 November 2012 21:31 (nine years ago) link

It sounded like nobody in that audience got the Katt "this right here" joke.

boxall, Monday, 19 November 2012 03:10 (nine years ago) link

Kind of shocked there was no Bobby Moynihan/Guy Fieri bit.

didn't make the cut...

http://gothamist.com/2012/11/19/video_snls_unaired_guy_fieri_restau.php

dan selzer, Monday, 19 November 2012 15:14 (nine years ago) link

Cool Drones was fantastic, you guys are cray. Your Childhood Home was better though. That was literally the worst cold open I've ever seen on this show.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 November 2012 15:27 (nine years ago) link

didn't make the cut...

is there a version of this that can be seen in the outside world?

good naber He help get undr control (sic), Monday, 19 November 2012 22:48 (nine years ago) link

Probably not. SNL and NBC are among the shows/networks who keep the tightest controls on their content.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 19 November 2012 22:51 (nine years ago) link

Cool Drones was such a fucking abortion

Think about the amount of attention to detail Robert Smigel/TV Funhouse paid to 70s and 80s cartoons (like the Mr T bit) and the amount of attention Lonely Island/Andy Samberg paid to 90s R&B bands (like "Dick in a Box") (or Mr. Show's One Plus One Minus One even) and you can really see what a diharrea stream of half-remembered "references" that skit was. It was seriously like the creators only remembered "cartoons" and "boy bands" from comedy sketches they'd seen about about them.

tome crues (Whiney G. Weingarten), Thursday, 22 November 2012 00:04 (nine years ago) link

Agreed

dan selzer, Thursday, 22 November 2012 00:51 (nine years ago) link

yeah that cartoon was a sad TV Funhouse knockoff, i hope Smigel called up Lorne and yelled at him after it aired

The Doc Morbama (some dude), Saturday, 24 November 2012 02:31 (nine years ago) link

two weeks pass...

Dennis Perrin on the memorial for Tom Davis in Studio 8H:

Murray recalled how Tom saved him in a meeting, when Murray was new to the cast and dying slowly each week. Murray pitched Nick the Lounge Singer, but had no ending for it. Tom said, "I'll help Billy finish the sketch," which Murray confessed reversed his fortunes on the show. Murray choked up a bit remembering Tom, and spoke of the love he had for many in the room.

Franken verged on tears through much of his eulogy. He painted an impressionistic picture of Franken and Davis, starting as teens cracking each other up in a Minneapolis basement, learning their craft in LA clubs before moving east to work on SNL. Success, shared joy, disappointment, eventual break up — Franken and Davis experienced it all. You saw this history in Franken's expressions, something he did little to hide.

The concluding point, shared by all the speakers, was that Tom was a model for how to die. No self-pity. No anger. Acceptance of fate. Embracement of life. The last time I saw Tom he was clearly wasting away, yet he mocked his cancer while remaining upbeat. According to his wife, Mimi Raleigh, Tom left this world with a smile on his face. I definitely believe that.

2 chainz

johnny crunch, Sunday, 9 December 2012 05:02 (nine years ago) link

shouldve been a 1/2 hr 2 chainz set considering how bad the 1st 30 mins of this show was

johnny crunch, Sunday, 9 December 2012 05:17 (nine years ago) link

thought this was irredeemable until Mulroney and Maine

Gukbe, Sunday, 9 December 2012 05:44 (nine years ago) link

Maine Justice is fucking ALL-TIME! Best sketch I've seen on SNL in years.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 9 December 2012 05:45 (nine years ago) link

"once I got banged to death, then I got banged back to life after five minutes. thanks crystals!"
