SNL (s40e08) -- 12/06/14 -- H: James Franco -- MG: Nicki Minaj

This is his third time hosting (it's been 5 years since his last time)...

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/oMOov8xmf3Q?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

... and it's on Minaj's second time performing. Heaven help us.

Can't tell if this episode is terrible or hilarious. But I'm laughing.

It was not bad. My 3 favorites were: Grow A Guy, The MTV skit especially Bieber, and Tad Rankin? Can't remember if that was his name.

Grow a Guy was hilarious.

I think her music is shit, but Nicki Minaj in that black lace body suit with the spiked high heels was sexy as fucking hell.

Agree, wish she turned around more.

loved the line "Who remembers a Billy Zane line from Titanic?"

Best show of season, looked like Franco was having fun and it showed with how smoother everything went.

Also loved him going off on the kid mayor.

I thought the brain sketch was pretty original. Also liked Growaguy and the porn girls. Cecily is so damn hot.

Nicki was in more sketches than Kate.

Yup but I love Kate's impersonation of Bieber. I'm not a fan of Minaj but that outfit on the MTV sketch left little to the imagination.

Good episode. It makes a huge difference when the host is willing to have fun with the (weak) material.

I'm growing fond of WU again...

Nicki Minaj should have played Tonkerbell in the Peter Pan sketch.

Pretty good episode. Star Wars was gold, and I really like the porn girls, too. They do it a lot, but it doesn't get old.

So what was the deal with the Star Wars sketch? Apparently, the East coast (the one I saw) didn't have completed effects, but the West coast version did. In the one I saw, you could see the green screen in some shots out of Lando's window and Luke's walker did not light up like a bunch of lightsabers. I didn't even get the joke about Luke's walker except he needed a normal old person type walker.

Ah. I was wondering why the video in this thread was different from the one I saw on television. I thought someone just put the "lightwalker" effect into the video posted here as a joke.

Best episode of the last few seasons. Ted Rankin was great and every time Keenan plays Rick Ross I crack up.

I didn't watch the episode, but it's a shame that they cut the Ferguson sketch. It manages to be topical and funny in a way that SNL rarely is anymore.

"I thought Elsa was a bitch! Why won't you play with your sister, you bitch?"

My favorite line of the episode, and I totally agree with this.

I really liked the line on Weekend Update about buying Girl Scout cookies online. "You go online and talk to a girl scout, and the cookies are waiting for you in prison." It took me a few seconds to "get it", so that's probably why I liked it so much.

I thought Kenan's Al Sharpton was spot-on.

Franco has the worst Christopher Walken impersonation ever lol

Even 2nd rate comedians like Jay Mohr can do a good Walken.

Grow a Guy was good. I hope Mike O' Brien has more stuff to offer in future episodes.

I thought Minaj let some F bombs loose in her 2nd song and none of them were censored.

Which part of the show was this from? I skipped through most of it.

I don't keep up with a lot of Nationally-televised shows, but it's okay to say "Dickhead" now?

"Cut for time"? Was that going on while we got long ass commercial breaks?
