Fred's band is kind of meh. I can't even imagine what they're going to perform.

I like Fred and hope he brings back Rodger Brush the fill in host for the sex talk show.

Hopefully he gets Hader, Forte, and his other fellow SNL castmates on the show.


Please let this be Bobby Moynihan and Kenan Thompson's final show

I can't really get into Courtney Barnette. Her singing sounds more like she is announcing the lyrics over a megaphone.

Re: The monologue:

Someone needs to tell SNL that extended, intentionally unfunny bits are really tedious. Also, note that shitty comedian Kyle Mooney plays on WU.

The digital short with Adam Samberg was amazing.

My God. That was one of the worst monologues EVER. The damn thing just wouldn't die. It went on and on and fucking on. Sucking more as time went by. Best part of the show was "Farewell, Mr. Bunting". I haven't heard the audience laugh that loud and long for years. And that musical guest? Thumbs WAYYYY up. Never heard of her before. She kicked ass. Loved her!

The latest example of why Fred Armisen has not been missed.

Those 2 hot blondes sitting in the front row probably disagree but maybe they were being polite.

Kyle Mooney was in Zoolander 2 and he was basically playing the same guy on those digital shorts.

Clinton and Sanders dancing was funny and Armisen playing the lady who has an orgasm every time she gets touched lol.

I haven't laughed that hard at anything on SNL in years. Bravo!

Agree. I've watched that clip a few times since. Classic SNL.

Strange none of those characters above made an appearance. I would have put money on a Californians sketch being in the show.

I couldn't find a thread for the upcoming season yet...

Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah won't be returning. Their contracts weren't renewed. Who will play Obama now?

Good thing they have 2 out of the 4 Ghostbusters to carry the show.

Meh, Killam could never perform an impression during his entire SNL tenure & Pharoah was limited to doing impressions of Jay Z & Eddie Murphy, so what? He was better doing Obama than Armisen was however.

There will be a void with those 2 guys gone.

Pharoah seemed like he had the potential to be a breakout star.

Hope this gets Pete Davidson more screen time.

I hope Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer stay.

So they jettison the only two people on the show with real talent? Great. Maybe we'll get more of that bland dude and the curly haired guy nobody knows the name of.

Obama only has a few months left so I can understand this move.

In other cast news Kate McKinnon has been given an 8-year extension

You just know they'll have Kenan do it, despite the fact he doesn't look anything like Obama. And it'll probably sound exactly like his Charles Barkley impersonation.

They should just let Leslie Jones play Obama at this point.

I guess we're stuck with Hammond as Trump for a possible 4-8 years? They should hire that guy that did Trump on @Midnight. He was much better.

Kyle Mooney? I know his name. He's both me and my wife's favorite male cast member.
