Wasn't she supposed to be the host as well? Wonder what happened there.

How come they did not ask Alex Smith to host?




More painful memories

At least now there won't be any more Indie or Youtube bands performing

Eli wasn't very good (no surprise) - but they made him do a lot of embarassing stuff...so I'll give him kudos for playing along.

Best of the night was the Amazon/Fifty Shades of Grey commerical.

Eli was pretty good for not being a comedian. I liked the text messages in court sketch and the Little Brothers commercial.

I liked Eli. He can't act but he was awkwardly funny. I thought the courtroom skit was the highlight too.

This was pretty damn funny. I think Eli did great. Out of his element for sure, but he fully committed and it worked.

Eli was much better than I was expecting him to be. What he lacks in timing he makes up for in goofiness.

I most enjoyed the Little Brothers skit. It's not as funny as Peyton's United Way bit, but it's still pretty awesome.

Re: SNL 05/5/12 - H: Eli Manning - MG: Rihanna

I expected Eli to be wooden, and he definitely was. But I was also pleasantly surprised with how he did. The courtroom sketch was great, how he would lean all the way into the Mic. I loved his Cats joke in thee monologue. He really played along and it showed. The little brothers commercial was a great "response" to Peyton's
United way one.

Wasn't so keen on the ad for the dictator, but it had its moments.

The fifty shades of gray thing was awesome.

Was there a digital short? Was it the little brothers? Was kind of hoping for a shy Ronnie.

Rihanna certainly likes spreading her legs and pointing at her vag... And I'm fine with it too.

Sounds like Rihanna pissed off Lorne and quite a few people by not performing at the dress rehearsal.

Yes, she has no problem pointing out her talent!

at the last line of the article, saying that Rihanna needed to save her voice for the actual performance. We all know she didn't actually sing.

And to the whole thing. Lorne won't invite Rihanna back to SNL. No big loss for either side.

Was there no Digital Short this week? I would've expected Shy Ronnie 3 or something.

Rihannas career might be over a in year or two anyways and she has to release an album every year to keep her name in the public.
