the Opening was incredible

Kanye's first song was ehhhh..

and then he got 3 songs? I read that he can do whatever he wants because his wife is incredibly wealthy.

I rarely watch SNL, but they really nailed the opening.

Damon played Kavanaugh in the cold open. Other amusing parts in the show but that was really the only thing worth seeking out.

They have a brand new opening and guys like Davidson and Mooney are no longer featured players.

Kanye is so boring and his music sucks.

At first I thought this was a skit





Is there a more perfect match than Izod and Colin Jost?

Yeah, that Kanye song was like a skit trying to copy Timberlake with a very bad rap by him and whoever other guy was. It made no sense and didn’t flow at all...

Kate MacKinnon really nailed Lindsey Graham, too. I thought she was great in that skit.

They weren't featured players last season either.

The oil industry dad sketch was great. Bravo to Driver for that performance.

Driver is a great host, but I don't know what the fuck Kanye was up to.

Kanye is a dumbass when it comes to politics. He doesn't bother to research anything and just shoots from the hip. I liked how when you watched Chris Rock's brief video, you just hear him going "oh my god"...And it sounded like the rest of the SNL cast and crew had the same reaction...

Did anyone else notice they didn't say Kyle Mooney's name in the open? Just the video of him. Odd...

Yes maybe it was a technical error

Are the opening credits read live? Daryl Hammond must have just fucked it up. That cold open was super long. It was really good too. I thought Damon did a pretty good job, but wasn't the best choice for someone losing their shit John Belushi style. Adam Driver as the oil tycoon was the highlight for me. I'm glad Kanye's rant at the end didn't make it. I'm just so over that guy.

I thought maybe they did that as a precursor to his skit about how "nobody knows who he is".

I noticed that as well.

I think they "fixed" it for the west coast airing (if they're still doing that), as I saw it on a later airing of it.

Is the into voice done live or is it pre-recorded?

The live east coast opening that I watched did not have Mooney's name (I noticed), but the version on Hulu does have it.

Oil Barron character was great, but also clearly inspired by There Will Be Blood. Not that original.
