SNL 05/13/06 - (H) Julia Louis-Dreyfus (M) Paul Simon

Saw this today on TVguide.com... anyone know what they're talking about?
Listeners to WKTU-FM heard the Seinfeld alum herself spill the exact beans, but let's just say that a big surprise is in store when Old Christine's Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend....

I'm thinking it might have something to do with "nothing"..

What else could it be? The triumphant return of her hubby?

I mean, I can see Jerry and Jason showing up, but Michael's a weird bird.

Julia is the first ever female former cast member to ever host the show.

Yeah, he's never been the same since UHF. I think he took one too many mops to the face..

I can think of no bigger surprise than the episode actually being funny.

Only seven posts into the thread before the bashing! Sweet.

Although I did see a commercial for the show, and with JLD was
Spoiler:
NOOney and nooNEY, the two weird Europeans.
I'm not crazy about that recurring skit.

As for the surprise
Spoiler:
I think it's a film about the Seinfeld curse. I would imagine that some, if not all, of the others would appear. Probably not live though.

That would not be a surprise. That would be a miracle.

Maybe the surprise is a guest appearance by her favorite ghostbuster, "the black one".

(I can't really remember any other skit she was in from back then)

Looks like I was late again, starting this thread. I was actually going to wait until tomorrow... but oh well.

Here's the G-o-M. The ups are winning (barely)... so we'll see what happens.

I'll be in London next Saturday so someone else will have to update the new thread with the G-o-M. But as soon as I get back, I'll check in and see what all y'all think.

On another board, someone made this comment:
"I saw the promo for this week's episode. Paul Simon looks like a pre-op transsexual undergoing pre-emptive chemotherapy treatment for his cancer-ridden post-op breast implants."

Whoa there buddy.

That "Carol" image happens to be the only good "Carol" skit in the history of the show.

Paul Simon's new album is called "Surprise." So that's it, I guess.

So far I'm liking it.

In the skit after the monologue/commercial parody, I thought they were setting up a "Merv the Perv" appearance - when the women in the restaurant were first talking about the things the homeless guy said to them.

One of the better episodes this season. JLD of course was on SNL a hundred years ago. She was looking good tonight.

Parallel Earth
The real Al Gore does a television address as president since 2000. We have universal health care, gas at $.19 per gallon, and a budget surplus of $11 trillion, among other things. GWB is the commissioner of baseball. Funny stuff, and Al Gore was pretty good. Yeah, all he did was sit there and read the cue cards, but he still had to make it work.

Monologue
JLD mentions the proposed names for her new sitcom to lure male viewers, like Football Christine and Coke Off a Whore’s Ass Christine. A clip was shown of her meeting Jason Alexander on the street and talking about the Seinfeld Curse, which is still working on JA. On stage, a light fixture falls and we see Jerry Seinfeld on the catwalk with a large pair of scissors. I’m not sure why he would want to kill her though. Good bit.

Tech Pack
Commercial parody about a large belt you wear at the airport with a lot of pouches for your cell, blackberry, ipod, etc. The joke is that the belt looks exactly like something a human bomb would wear, including handheld detonator. One of the funnier ads.

Four Women
Four friends out to lunch, three of whom are complaining about the creepy homeless guy in front of the restaurant who made lewd remarks to them as they entered. JLD is upset because he said nothing to her. Hader as the bum, who grinds against the window for the other 3, then ignores JLD. So far, so good.

The Morning Show
Regular morning show that seems to have everything go wrong at once, including theme music playing at inopportune times, bumbling hosts, and wishing a happy birthday to a longtime employee who died the night before. Sanz made it through a whole skit without breaking character! Wiig as the female host and JLD as a visiting author.

The Learning Annex
Hilarious bit with Samberg as a teacher of a course about signing up for myspace.com. JLD is there as a concerned mother, wanting to see what her daughter is doing online, but the other students are all perverted older men, looking to pretend on myspace that they are young and hot, to hook up with teenage girls. Topical, funny, and very very true.

Weekend Update
Probably the weakest part of the show. Best line was from Poehler, “Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, so pick up the phone and put out that fire.” Another good one was regarding the new show on the network for babies, “CSI: Poopy Town”. Al Gore comes on to discuss global warming with Poehler, who’s all for it. Finesse justifies his employment with an out-of-place bit about dressing for the prom. Armisen as Fey’s grandfather, trying to sign up for medical care over the phone. He can’t do it because he’s old, you see? Samberg makes a deathly unfunny visit as David Blaine trying to hold his breath.

Charades
A 70s game show with celebrities. Hammond as Rich Little, Rudolph as Charo, Forte as Bruce Jenner, Armisen as George Carlin, and Thompson as Nipsey Rusell. Kind of an odd bit, I’m not sure I got it. Poehler is one contestant and the celebrities get all her charades, and JLD is the other one and they can’t guess hers at all. Of course, the charades were overtly sexual in the nature of performance. Sweet.

Unsolved Mysteries
JLD as an actress, doing a recreation of an alien abduction for the show, but wonders why E.T., Dracula, and Gremlins show up as well. Wiig is the woman JLD is portraying and she’s probably totally nuts. Wiig really should be used more, she’s a breath of fresh air.
Digital Short
Anyone who didn’t see the end of this one coming from the very first second should be ashamed. Samberg is supposedly standing on a ledge, threatening to jump. Forte is on the ground with a bullhorn, begging him not to. Cut to a wide shot, and it’s Samberg standing on the street, with Forte kneeling in front of him. I think it was an ad for peyote.
