SNL 4:20 -- with your host, a tool (Alec Baldwin)

Could be a very good show. Alec may be a tool, but usually shines in his SNL appearances.

And the promos have promised a return of Mr Schweaty...

Does anyone else think that this whole elderly black woman skit is racist, stupid, and not funny at all?

The Ozzy skit was great! They hit on the odd fact that you can't understand a word when he talks, but his singing is perfectly clear.

I liked Gore visiting Baldwin, "You gotta relax Home Fry"

And yeah the gay "leave a message" was great too. I turned it off after the news, it got boring after that.

The Ozzy sketch was okay...not laugh out loud, but amusing.

The elderly black woman sketch was terrible. Did the audience even laugh?

Weekend Update is on right now on the west coast. The Tobey Maguire thing was awful.

Didn't like this episode too much at all. The elderly black women skit was awful (except for Tracy Morgan), The Tobey Maguire impression wasn't funny (shame they couldn't have gotten Tobey on there again - his episode a few years back was so funny), Ozzy sketch was okay (probably the best of the night, which isn't saying much), The Al Gore thing is getting old, Gay voicemail skit wasn't funny, Tony Bennett Talk Show was tacky and kind of scary with Kattan looking like that (did I hear Tony say something about 'Casey Affleck' or am I going crazy?), yet again the music group seemed to me like a comedy skit.. Just my opinion. And I thought the episode with 'The Rock' was bad...

I dunno, I thought that elderly black woman skit was hilarious.

"I am so sick of you white men, once you get successful you dump your wife for a black granny."

And Tracy Morgan: "Where's the buttermilk?"

I thought it was just poking fun of women who complain about their husbands dumping them for a white woman, or a younger woman, or whatever. It just shows how absurd it is. You should be mad that your husband dumped you, not for who he dumped you for.

I liked the black granny skit.

I really like those "me and my lovah" skits, even though it's the same joke and the same punchline, "Get the hell off me!", every time.

Honk!

Aside from the "Ozzy" sketch there really wasn't anything amusing about the episode to me.

I missed it. Personally I liked the show with the Rock (both in fact).
