Since there is "No Time To Die", I guess he has time to host SNL again... his last gig hosting was back in 2012.

Considering his roles in Logan Lucky and Knives Out I'm curious to see if he pulls out the southern drawl tonight.

Special appearance by Elizabeth Warren in the opening. The real one.

Did the musical guest get into a fight before the show or something?

That is part of his shtick with his current singles and album coming later in March.

Debbie Downer was a one time hit but should be retired for good.

That Bond clip was great.

I liked the show overall. Craig is a good host. Good comedic chops and timing.

The Bond skit was so awesome. Watched it 5 times. "Can I get a Vodka and Red Bull pint glass, please."

And Keenan as his hype man - perfect.

I wish Lorne had the presence of mind to realize that the thing that made the first Debbie Downer sketch a classic was the cast losing it, and it had nothing to do with the character or the jokes actually being very funny. The second time they tried it, it was a disaster. This time out felt like a little curtain call for Dratch since she won't be back as Amy K anymore, and it went by pretty fast.


Overall, a more solid episode than most this season. No real highs or real lows for me. A comedown from last week, of course. Loved the Bond film (and Chloe Fineman in the black wig!) and I liked the movie quote sketch. No use for Bottle Boi and the accent coach sketch.

The Deirdre Show with the chef and diva singer who thinks she was told to eat foil was a total ripoff of Patti LaBelle on The Tyra show when a chef spoke condescendingly toward her about 'not eating the paper'.

The clip is on YouTube and WAY funnier (in a cringey way) than this skit was. I suppose the skit was supposed to be a tribute or homage since they even dressed the black female singer in the same way as Patti La Belle on the clip. Just makes you wonder why they even bothered but I guess its hard to fill 90 minutes of comedy every week...

..
Now the premise makes sense, at least. That was a real head-scratcher in terms of just wondering why someone thought this was an idea to do a sketch about because Ego's diva singer was not much of a character.

Okay that was so random. How would anyone know about that Tyra bit? How long ago did that happen?
Watching the You Tube bit, they got it exactly right, but still.

Why are you making that queer food

So wrong

Pete Davidson was nowhere to be found though he appeared on a new episode of the Rookie last night.

Above average episode, Craig was a good host.

Didn't expect The Weeknd to sound like early-80s OMD.

Yeah, with Adam Sandler in 2012.

Looks like there won't be any Larry David vs Adam Baldwin debate sketches this Fall

I think they have filmed 16 of the 21 shows for this season and wonder if these in home shows will count towards the season total?
