SNL (S41E02) -- 10/10/15 -- H: Amy Schumer -- MG: The Weekend

Sorry I'm late with this. I'm traveling this weekend!

@wilw: Saturday Night Live debuted 40 years ago today. 39 years and 51 weeks ago, people started complaining that it isn’t as good as it used to be.

Thought you were just doing a Season Thread so I just bumped the old one.

Last night was Amy Schumer.

Great monologue that was really just a huge chunk of stand-up.

I didn't think too much of the sketches. Nothing stood out as god awful, but nothing stood out as very funny either. Seems like there was a lot of yelling in the sketches, and a lot more Kyle Mooney than usual.

Cecily Strong didn't show up until after Update. Thank God that they did not jam Schumer into another edition of The Girlfriends Talk Show, but CS's lack of screen time seems odd.

Schumer did not show any more skin than what you can see in the photo, so I guess interest in this episode was down compared to Miley.

No, I'm going to continue the weekly ones... I'm just at a conference this weekend and spaced putting up the thread.

I thought the first half wasn't bad, and Schumer did a good job. Weekend Update (as usual) and everything after was pretty terrible.

They need to get new people on Weekend Update ASAP. Make a mid-season change. Anything would be better than the two fuckers they got on there now.

Kate McKinnon and her annoying characters are in danger of becoming the next Kristin Wiig.

Ended up FFing the one she did for, like, ten minutes on WU.

That's how I felt about the episode. I didn't mind Schumer as host but it just wasn't memorable.

"{ CS's lack of screen time seems odd. I thought the same.

I found Schumer typically nasty. Nonetheless, I was surprised she got all that pass the censors...However, I do like her stand up etc. the Bradly Cooper part...funny girl.

No she has not reached that level yet


"I only call you when it is half past five

I guess some people were ticked off about the gun parody.
