I guess that makes sense. Sounds pretty precautious. Hope everyone truly is alright and no after effects, but should be a good one tonight. Chris Rock at top of game now imo...

^ If by ďnowĒ you mean 20 years ago when Bigger & Blacker was released then I agree with you.

I wonder what kind of restrictions there will be on the comedy itself. Can they really make fun of Trump like they used to with him in the hospital?

It's nice to see the show back to normal, or as normal as possible. Got an audience again. Makes such a big difference.

So Megan Thee Stallion is just a Nicki Minaj wannabe?

The Cold opening was good and I liked the bit with the teen in 2000 who got to see his future.

Chrs Rock never ages and looks almost the same back in the 90's.

Surprised Bowen Yang was not promoted to a featured performer.

Same with Chloe Fineman. She was one of the only bright spots of the at home episodes last season and her Drew Barrymore was spot on.

I donít remember seeing Villasenor at all.

I'd pay good money for the Trump remote control.

He is so unfunny and annoying.

Looks like that Chinese trade rep on WU is his signature character, and I don't find him funny at all.

Not really big into SNL, but the cold open mocking the debate was pretty good. Carrey was pretty good as Biden. I liked his line: flash that smile they taught you in anger management. The Trump remote was good too.

My wife said the same thing last night.

The show was meh as usual. The ongoing cast takes it too seriously and thus makes it not funny.

Not a regular viewer of SNL. However, it was cool seeing it back in the original format and having an audience.

I thought the open was fun and had a few laughs. Jim Carrey did a good job as Biden.

at Trump's meditation tape of Kim Guilfoyle

So 2 sex positive black female rappers being popular at the same time is too much but the 100+ same sounding white male rock bands, white male pop stars, black male rappers (including the guest star on the last song) you have no issues with I assume.

It was a meh episode.

I'd pound that Megan chick.

Yea, I didn't see her anywhere - not even as a background character.
Also, this was probably the least amount I've seen Kate McKinnon used. You take away the pre-recorded stunt man commercial, I think she was on for less than 1 minute.
Keenan didn't get a lot of action either.

Wow, after all that time off, this episode is the best they could come up with? I was really looking forward to this but skipped most of the skits after a few minutes watching and gave up after the weekend update which also sort of fell flat.

"Sex positive"... is that what they're calling whores these days?

Just because someone wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot pole, doesn't make them a whore. Based on your reaction I suspect it would point to excellent judgement on their part.
