Watching now, about 15 minutes left, and everything about the show show felt off. Nothing was funny. Including "Weekend Update". And Kyle Mooney's impersonation of Martin Scorsese was cringeworthy. That damn segment felt never ending.

Don't know who the young skinny kid is, but damn they are giving him a lot of work tonight.

That have may have been one of the worst musical performances I've ever seen on this show.

There were a couple decent jokes in WU, but yeah, Mooney's Scorsese impersonation was cringey (and ran way too long). Between that and his baby Yoda shtick, I really don't find that guy funny at all.

I was thinking the same thing, this is the first episode where I really noticed him because it seemed like he was in every sketch.

The worst! And then bringing out that faux British singing voice during the second performance. Hey poser, only Billie Joe Armstrong can pull that off.

Wow. Usually there's at least one or two good sketches per show, but I sat stone-faced during this entire episode. Terrible.

Agree. It was also one of the worst and most awkward monologues ever too. Poor Krasinski.

Yeah, that was Lorne Michaels giving Andrew Dismukes a chance to break through with half a season left.

Admittedly I don't watch SNL on the regular anymore but have they always had an inability to end sketches? It's like someone has an idea and they go for it but don't have any idea how to end it.. They just end at an awkward moment.

Wow!! I watched a completely different show. Skipped past the MGK performances, so IDK about that, but I thought this was one of the solidest and most consistently funny shows in recent memory. No sketch is going to go down as a great highlight, but neither did I think any was a real low-light. I thought Supermarket Sweep and Subway were the weakest. But all the sketches had actual jokes, not just ideas for places where a joke could be inserted if someone wanted to take the time.

I liked that the cold open was political without needing Trump and Biden impersonations from guest stars.
The monologue addressed the elephant on the room. Though it would have been sillier if Davidson had put on a wig and sweater to pretend to be Pam.
I liked the Zoom call with the creepy kids working off something topical to just do something weird.
The Loser film was funny.
Update was funny. I liked all three guest pieces.
And the final rat sex sketch was just such an absurd surprise.

I must be the only person on this board who shares some part of my sense of humor with Kyle Mooney's comedy. I am not saying everything he does is great, but I've never been bored by him or thought he was beating the same tired premise (Oh look, it's Secret Word with the same joke every time).

I liked this episode too and though it was probably one of the best shows of the season.

Krazinksi is a good host.

Their best shows come after a break.

The Scorsese part was the only weak part but I liked the Subway, the Capitol rioters getting arrested, the cold opening. The Twins, Blue Georgia, and the My Pillow guy.

Machine Gun Kelly sucks

I thought that Blink 182 and Good Charlotte era of rock ended in the early 2000's?

I thought the cold open was good.
The monologue sucked. Didn't Steve Carrel do a similar thing in his monologue where members of the audience kept focusing on The Office? And yes, Krasinski, doesn't look THAT much more buff than his The Office days.

The Scorcese impersonation was good the first 15 seconds (the look and his mannerisms), but then it just got dumb really quick.

Machine Gun Kelly sucked, but he didn't suck any more than a lot of the other "artists" the have as musical guest.

i like MGK. Sure there's better rock out there but at least SNL HAD actual rock music for once. It's always horrible pop/hip hop/country, And yes i know this season had Jack White and Bruce and Foo Fighters but usually in a normal non weird season it's very very non rock.

I too felt it was a decent episode compared to the first few from this season. I skipped MGK entirely and FF thru the WU part with Scorsese as I can't stand the other guy. I liked the Georgia restaurant scene until it sort of fizzled out in the end and thought the capitol arrest skit was funny at first but went on too long.

Yeah, I didn't hate Machine Gun Kelly as much as a lot of y'all did; it was guitar-oriented rock and roll, everything was played live with no lip synching, choreography, or video tricks. But he's also very generic, and the reason I stopped listening to so-called "alternative" radio stations. He also comes across as a total phony. Reminds me of "Blues Hammer" from the movie Ghost World.

The only sketch I really enjoyed was the cold open. So many times in previous years they simply re-created what Trump had done that week, verbatim. The writers can't be lazy like that anymore, and the "What Still Works" was a funny commentary on current events that required a little imagination for once.

I didn't care for this episode. Not many laughs and while I don't mind MGK's current Blink-182 phase, his performance wasn't great.

I thought the quip about Spirit giving you a snake as a comfort animal was pretty funny.

I thought MGK did okay for an SNL musical guest.

Don't really know much about him, other than he seems to popular with teenagers and the early-20s crowd.

I was under the impression he was a rapper?

He is only known to me for being popular with washed -up, ex-Maxim girls in their mid-30s.

He was, he transitioned to the late 90s pop-punk (with Travis Barker in tow on a song or two) genre early last year/maybe 2019.

Speaking of things that were way better in the late-90s.
