Havn't watched SNL in probably about 3 years but I may have to tune in to watch the beautiful Rosario tonight.

Last week was great, but I'm not looking forward to tonight. Dawson does nothing for me and I've never heard of the band.

I have a feeling Dawson will deliver. I mean if the show sucks it won't be because of her.

That monologue was retarded. Remember when the hosts used to do their own monologue?? You know, by themselves? (As in the definition of the word)

The Discovery skit was funny. The Gitmo bit was hilarious.

Re: SNL 01/17/09 - H: Rosario Dawson - MG: Fleet Foxes

I have to admit I've never heard of Fleet Foxes until tonight; usually I can't make it through one minute of the "musical acts", but I totally dug both of their songs. I'm going to run out to the nearest record store/head shop and buy their long player.

The rest of the show was terrible.

Kristen Wiig needs to get sent to Siberia.

The only highlight for me tonight were Rosario Dawson's twins.

I liked the kids show sketch and the Aladdin sketch. The rest of it was bad.

I don't think Hammond even works on his impressions anymore, his Chaney was terrible.

Re: SNL 01/17/09 - H: Rosario Dawson - MG: Fleet Foxes

The first 30 minutes of the show as terrible and it seemed like every sketch had awful music.

They saved their best stuff after weekend update but Good Excuses was pure filler.


Can anyone repeat the complete joke about Governor Arnold and the Sword was classic during Weekend update?

That was classic.

The Spanish Police show brought back bad memories of high school Spanish Class

I only like Wiig when she plays Elizabeth Hasselback on the View.

She is the "TO" of the show and the show would be a lot stronger if they dumped her.


Judy Grimes is the best SNL character every

Just Kidding Just Kidding Just Kidding JUST KIDDING!!

I felt just the opposite... I thought the show was actually pretty decent up until Update/Gily - then the rest of it just sucked complete BALLS. I thought Fleet Foxes were alright but these were some of the least funny sketches I've seen in a long time...and Update hasn't been that great the last two weeks - I didn't think Amy would leave such a hole, but she has.

Yeah, that was hilarious.

And Wig was on way too much last night, her characters are too similar.

Arnold Schwarzenegger joke:
Spoiler:
Arnold Schwarzenegger brought the sword he used from Conan the Barbarian to the state finance meeting, joking that he would use it to cut the budget in half. It quickly became awkward when he had to give the sword to an aide, sit down at a table filled with people half his size, and figure out math problems in his head using his second language.

I caught the cold open and then remember Pardo starting to name the cast.

The last thing I remember was "Will Forte" and then I was asleep.

Sounds like I didn't miss anything.

I almost always enjoy the musical guests, even if it's an act I don't normally listen to. Fleet Foxes was no exception -- I've never heard them before (though I have heard of them), but I very much enjoyed their performances. They remind me of America.

Yeah, but what's up with that "homeless man" haircut? I'm not sure how he got past security.

Highlite for me was the Gitmo sketch and Judy on W/U (Just Kidding NOT!).
