Kerry Washington... meh.

Eminem... could be interesting.

But the big new is Lady Gaga doing double duty in two weeks... until then:

I know it is just the promos but Eminem takes himself too seriously and has no sense of humor.

Will they spoof this?

well at least during the opening skit, the show recognized the flaw in not having a regular black woman in the cast.

The Shaq impersonation had me laughing harder than I have laughed at this show in a long time.

The "What My Girl Says" spoof of "What Does the Fox Say" was 10 times better than the original.

West Coast apparently never got to see Eminem's first performance. Wondering if there was a reason for that.

What My Girl Says is going to be a huge viral hit. Great video.

The first song was "Berserk" and samples Billy Squiers' "The Stroke" so maybe it was a rights thing? I also read his mic cut out halfway through the song so they had to use the tracking vocal. It did seem a little off.

That explains it ... I said to my wife that I thought he was lip-syncing .....

Rick Rubin, the JD Salinger of music producers made a rare appearance in public.

Yeah, the "What does my girl say?" video was one of the better uses of a host in a while.

Do SNL writers have a clue what a beginning, middle and end are? They come up with a concept and write it until they can't think of anything else to do with it.

the Cartoon game show was by far one of the worst written sketches ... ever.

So they haven't had a regular female African-American SNL cast member since Maya Rudolph. big whoop. That should give Kenan and Jay more opportunities to go Tyler Perry/Madea on the show.
That entire issue with Kenan Thompson whining about the lack of diversity is ridiculous. I don't see Nasim Pedrad complaining about the lack of Iranian, Middle Eastern, or Asian cast members.

Yeah, that was surprising.

Reminds me of Bryan Johnson.

This episode was painful. I erased it after WU. Every single sketch sucked, music video aside.

SNL generally has terrible hosts. Usually flavour of the month pop culture people. The cast is abysmal. The sketches are terrible. But I'll watch every episode. Whats wrong with me?

Shutup. The amount of undercover racists on this board and allowance of it is unbelievable but not surprising especially every SNL episode thread. There is always a bunch of comments about Kenan, Jay ,the guest host, musician when they are black and frankly I'm fucking sick of it. I guess the rap music was ok this week being that the artist was white. And Yeah I'm calling you a racist I don't care if you deny it.

This board has always skewed like that because of the demographics. I don't even click on threads where race is involved because I know how it will turn out. You either have to be selective in what you read or move on to a different board because it will never change.

You know somethings up when the solution to the lack of a black female on the cast is 'that just gives the black men more opportunities to put on a dress.'

Yay. Thanks for that.

Eminem was lip synching for sure... I thought that was a no-no on SNL?
