Not to mention, do you really think they aren’t going to be on the week leading up to the election?

But then they're gonna skip the weeknd after the election? It seems they need to do at least 6 episodes in a row.

This I did not know. I thought she was just an actress... even one who does comedic roles. Wasn't aware she wrote comedic material.

It hasnít been announced if they will or wonít. But it has been announced that they will be doing 5 in a row, which was the point.

It is a SNL first with 5 consecutive weeks of new episodes which they have never done before and maybe 6.

Too bad they don't have those special Thurs Weekend Update shows and maybe they could have done some of those instead of having 5 or 6 shows in a row.

Abysmal episode. I didn't laugh once. Didn't even smile. Even "Weekend Update" sucked. Save for that "NBC: We have a type" joke. There are way too many players on the show now. And please please get rid of Bowen Yang. He is painfully unfunny and gets on my fucking nerves.

As a french Canadian from Montreal i felt personally attacked from the first skit hahah

But nah it was fine. Tho Bowen Yang's pronunciations were pretty on point on our slang and cuss words.

It even created a little controversy around here lol

Don't see the big deal, i found it kinda funny and it was nice to be included!

I figured Bieber would be on Bonjour-Hi as he's Canadian. Maybe its too obvious? I know he's not French-Canadian, but neither is Drake

We will see a thin Adele in this weekend's episode.

I wonder if they are going to take a longer winter break and start the 2021 shows in Feb and not mid to late January or they are predicting another big Covid shutdown and do as many shows as you can before the cases spike in the Winter and everything is shut down again.
