This’ll be strange. I’m not sure Rami can do comedy… but it might be fun to watch him try.

You never watched the sitcom he was on, The War at Home, with Michael Rappaport?

I only know him from Mr. Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody, and that one Night at the Museum movie he was in… and the last 007 film.

Edit to add: After my post, I looked it up and found this… and I stand corrected. He can do comedy.

I thought I was literally the only person in the world who watched that show.

One of the SNL Twitter accounts says the Cold Open will be an NFL football press conference.

I think I'd rather see a cold open about Ovaltine

Somebody with talent will host this week unlike last week.

I wonder who will play Gruden? I know he has to be covered in today's show.

This week's SNL will be hosted by an Oscar and Emmy winning actor. I predict the ratings will drop 33% from last week.

Right? But then put "Snooki" on and watch the ratings skyrocket. I weep for this country.

Squid Game pre-taped skit tonight too. This should be fun.

Don’t care for the host or musical guest but I like the lineup of skits rumored so far.

If the monologue is any indication of the quality of tonight’s show, I’ll be going to bed after Weekend Update.

After a full week of rehearsals, they still decided the "Bug Assembly" sketch was worthy of going first.

Well, they used everyone and their brother for the cold open, one of the few parts of the show I usually enjoy, and it was awful.

hoping Weekend Update is good. I never usually like the regular skits. And Rami Malek sucks in general.

At least we get Ted Lasso and Brandi Carlisle next week

These are the people I want and prefer hosting the show.

Did Young Thug cut his first song short or did he forgot the lyrics?

He looked at the band and stopped though maybe some people were happy.

Bug Assembly was really bad and stupid.

however, the Celebrity School/game show thing was excellent, IMO.

Chloe Fineman as Jennifer Coolidge was hilarious.

I loved Villasenor as Wiig

Agreed with the Celeb gameshow, that was great.

The bug show was one of the most grating things I've seen in a while, but the live audience ate that shit up.

1:20 performance by YT plus a 20 second drum solo. On stage for less than 2 minutes. Best SNL musical performance in a long time.

Re: SNL 10/16/21 (S47E03) — H: Rami Malek - MG: Young Thug

It seemed like every sketch worked, even if not laugh-out loud funny, with the exception of that damn bug sketch. I liked the mattress store bit with Malek and Bryant, and the improv singer at the end.

But yeah, the celeb game show was easily the highlight. Loved the John Oliver impression. That's what SNL used to do; just throw a bunch of people out there doing funny impressions. You ended up with semi-classics like the 90s sketch "America's Most Wanted Child Stars", with Michael J. Fox as Danny Bonaduce, and David Spade as Michael J. Fox, with Fox doing everything he could to not bust up laughing as Spade did his mannerisms right in front of him.

I thought the mattress store thing with Aidy Bryant and Malek was really funny. Bryant gave an electric performance there.

I guess the only character Boyen Yang can play is "really gay guy". It's almost as bad as Leslie Jones only playing Leslie Jones.

Bleh episode.

That was probably my least favorite episode in a while with only the mattress store and the Squid Game being entertaining. Also my first time hearing Young Thug and man hip-hop has gotten bad.

Ratings down from the previous week. Hopefully, this will lead to more reality stars hosting.

Last night’s telecast of Saturday Night Live with host Rami Malek and musical guest Young Thug drew a 3.4 household Live + Same Say rating in the 44 metered local markets and 1.3 in 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

That was down last week’s show, hosted by Kim Kardashian West with musical guest Halsey (3.8, 1.6). Last night’s telecast, which featured surprise appearances by Malek’s No Time To Die co-star Daniel Craig, matched the all-time demo low in the LPM markets posted by the last two episodes of SNL’s Season 46 as well as the Season 47 premiere two weeks ago. It set a new low in metered market households.
