Should be fun... both the host and musical guest.

Guess that shows how long it's been since I've watched SNL. I thought it came on at 1030.

That musical monologue might be the best one SNL has ever done.

Re: SNL -- 04/05/14 -- H: Anna Kendrick -- MG: Pharrell

I turned it off when Pharrell's song started. Everything up to that point wasn't just awful, it was painfully awful. To only add to the torture, each of those early skits went on way too long. I only hung in as long as I did because I kept expecting (hoping) the next one would be better.

Do they seriously look at this stuff in rehearsals and think... Yeah this is great, let's go with this?!

SNL has had some quality writing and performances this season so I was shocked that the horror contined on to the MG.

And who the hell is Anna Kendrick?

Not knowing Anna Kendrick is not as bad as some guy on another board several years ago who never heard of U2 lol.

Nobody liked best of the white guys lol?

When the Game was Fair narrated by Jimmy the Greek? Wow that was a dated reference lol.

It seemed like the studio audience was laughing nonstop unless SNL is using fake applause.

Halfway through the episode and I am enjoying it. Kendrick is a good host.

I agree. Those who ask who she is, have you been living under a rock? Even if you don't know her name, you don't recognize the face? Have you not seen "Up in the Air?" Which she was also nominated for an Oscar. "50/50"? "End of Watch"? "Pitch Perfect"? Didn't she even have a top 10 hit song from that movie? Hell, she was even in those god awful "Twilight" films. Anyway, back to the show. Horrible episode. But Kendrick gets an A+ for effort.

I think every new SNL thread from now on should have a poll with four choices on whether or not people have previously heard of that week's guest host/musical guest. Then we could determine which ones are actually not very well known.

I know Pharrell. But not Anna Kendrick.

We should also throw in "I've been watching this show every Saturday night, and it's sucked for the past twenty years".

There's too much singing and dancing on the show, period. Seems like they have two or three musical sketches per episode which are seldom funny and I FF through them with my DVR. Save that shit for Timberlake.

The Dong song seemed like a lame rehash of the much funnier "Twin Bed," video from a few months back.
