SNL 04/12/08 - H: Ashton Kutcher - MG: Gnarls Barkley



I forgot that this was on tonight... oh well... he's a forgetable host.

I wonder if we'll get a Justin Timberlake impression?

Just in case anyone was wondering... he's hosted twice before tonight:

SNL with Ashton Kutcher 05/03/03

Snl 3/19/05

The only thing I remember from these shows was the Federline Underwear commercial.

That was the worst cold opening I've seen in quite some time.

Not a good start to the show at all.

EDIT:

Ummm, Daquiri girl? Alrighty then.

I got a chuckle out of "The Mellow Show."


... and the "Death by Chocolate" short was very random and very funny.

I actually enjoyed tonight's musical guest, Gnarls Barkley.

The paralyzed stripper skit was LOL funny.

That was so many levels of wrong. But it was dang funny.

Casey is a great addition to the cast.

The best things on the show are easy to name:

-"Death by Chocolate"
-The paralyzed stripper (I love Casey!)

And finally, possibly my favorite part of the night, Judy Greer in a Mac vs. PC commercial:

After what I thought was a rough start (her Rachael Ray was pretty bad imo), Casey has really grown on me.

She was the best part of The Cougar Den.

"I finally got the courage to talk to her, but she said she couldn't date me. I asked why not, and she told me it's because I'm a pedophile. I said, 'A pedophile? That's a pretty big word for a ten-year-old!'"

Whoops, forgot about the "four guys" sketch, that was the other thing I really liked. I always love those bits, and other sketches along the same lines (two people having coffee, and the king of the insane random comments - BILL BRASKY!).

Wiig as Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't very good, but the concept of the sketch was funny.

During "The Cougar Den", I thought for sure Demi was going to be the guest Cougar... but wasn't that surprised to see Cameron Diaz come out.

... and I didn't know how to react to Keenan's bouncer's question to Ashton about the black character on "That 70's Show." But it didn't matter, I was laughing at Armisen giving himself high-fives and fist-pounds after ever time Ashton was told to wait.

All in all a good ep. A slow start after the Cold Open and the weak monologue... but a decent show nonetheless.

Death by Chocolate might be one of the most inspired bits in years. Short but sweet. Pun intended.

I couldn't tell if GB actually promised to be in the digital short and they made this bit around that OR the whole thing was made up and they just used the GB name with permission.

Thought this was a really enjoyable show! Loved Casey esp in the stripper skit. I was laughing out loud when she was licking all over Andy. Great bit. Cameron Diaz was genius in her bit, and Ashton was trying to channel Justin. He's not as strong a guest host but he certainly is natural. Several LOL moments for me.

Fred Armisen is my favorite cast member and Nicholas Fein is my favorite character that he does.

I thought this ep was OK, nothing great...that pedophile joke is one that has been around for YEARS! I liked 'death by chocolate' a lot, very funny. Oh yeah, and I fucking hate Casey...she is horrible.

Not a bad episode at all. I agree Casey is bad, especially on The Cougar Den. Musical guest was strong. Nothing outrageously funny, but overall I would give it a C+.

Pretty good show, but my favorite sketch was that fake trailer for an Ashton Kutcher/Cameron Diaz movie. It was a dead-on parody of the stupid, screen-filler product Hollywood is producing today.

Hilarious.

I don't remember seeing that but are you sure it wasn't just a trailer for a real Ashton/Cameron movie? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1033643/
