Yeah, thus I will watch. Hope we see some Ed Grimley. Or better yet the return of Nathan Thurm - my favorite SNL character ever.

Fixed, for me. I'd rather see aging ex-cast members host than 80% of the ones we usually get.

Did anybody else see McCartney with Nirvana at the 12.12.12 concert? The man can still bring it.

Be cool if he did the new song. Have to admit he sounded pretty good.

No opening skit?




Writers are clearly on their game.

Or possibly they wanted something a little more somber on a night when people are still reeling from the mass murder of dozens of 5-year-olds.

I guess, but it's SNL. I think if people are watching it, they're expecting it to be funny.



Not sad/somber/etc.

Samuel L. Jackson just said "fuck" and "shit" within seconds of each other on "What's Up With That".

Watch it again. This is exactly what was said:

Keenan: Well, we out of time. I want to thank my guest, the incredible Samuel L. Jackson.
SLJ: Man, FUCK.
Keenan: HEY! Also....come on Sam.
SLJ: That's some bullshit!
Keenan: Come on now, that cost money!

^^

Haven't watched this yet; it's on my DVR. Heard Nirvana (or at least Grohl, Novo, and Smear) was playing with Paul McCartney tonight so I won't FF past the musical guest.

West coast had "Fuck" muted, but I definitely heard "This is bullshit." Apparently the censors were too focused one the one word that they missed the other.

The next new episode is on Jan 19 with Jennifer Lawrence.

Usually they return during the first weekend of the NFL playoffs around Jan 5.

Do you they have a best of show or preempted by WWE wrestling as a reason for that long wait?

On Twitter, he said that it was supposed to be cut off, but it wasn't.

Yeah, I thought there was an uncomfortable gap between the children singing and Martin Short coming out acting wacky...he should have just came out, said something about the tragedy, said we're going to try and have a few laughs tonight that we hope you'll enjoy, went to commercial, and THEN went on with the show. It was just weird watching those kids singing and then jumping into Short's wacky antics. Maybe it was just me.
