He's Mr. Personality! (For the record I am not looking forward to this ep.)

I actually think it has potential He has the akward/goofy thing going for him pretty well.

I would not be surprised to see a Rahm Emanuel sketch since Andy was campaigning with him last week

This episode sucked.
I've never heard of the musical guest.
This show is still on the air?
They need to fire Kristen Wiig.
I only watched this episode for the host, and it sucked.
SNL hasn't been funny in 15 years.

Spoiler:
Cut & paste as necessary, folks!

It's funny, now that Eisenberg has shown he can act, I look at Cera as a poor man's version of him.

I've heard so much about this Minaj chick but I've yet to see her. I'm very interested.

She's got a unique flow. Haven't heard much of her own songs besides Your Love which isn't too impressive but I loved her guest spot in Kanye West's Monster.

Dear God this has to be the worst SNL in over 10 years. Do the writers even try any more? "It's not unusual to get a boner at the movies". Ugh. Seriously!???

Some good stuff tonight. Zuckerberg showing up was a good moment for SNL.

Good digital short
Loved the Bride Of Blackenstein.
The skins parody was funny
El Shrinko was pretty good.

So, does Joe Satriani get a songwriting credit and royalies for the 1st song Nicki Minaj played?
The music is a note-for-note ripoff of his "Always with me, always with you."

Not to bag on the show, since this was an alright episode. But now "SNL" is doing what "MadTV" did years ago, and did better?

I actually thought this was one of the better episodes to be honest. The opening monologue, the science class, the blaxploitation cinema, the dying old reporter, were all solid. I didn't like the musical guest at all (never really do) but overall pretty good.
