SNL 11/20/21 (S47E07) H: Simu Liu - MG: Saweetie

I hope this episode is good, Simu could be a great host.



I have no idea who Saweetie is. Fun facts: Her uncle is MC Hammer and Gabrielle Union is a cousin. Thanks Wikipedia.

Yup literally have never heard of this music artist. Checking Spotify, she has 16M monthly listeners which is a fraction of a popular artist, but not insignificant either.

I actually like that SNL would have a musical guest that's not popular or well know. It's good to give new unknown talent some exposure.
I listened to a few songs from Saweetie and it's just crap. Sadly, this will boost her popularity.

So Billie Ellish is the host and musical guest in a few weeks? Guess I'll be skipping that episode.

Unknown to you

One of the most popular and awarded musical artists of recent years.

Your dismissal is because she is female? . . . 19 years old? . . . from LA?

Yeah. but I'm going off of Decker indicating that she's not THAT popular still - comparative to MG's SNL usually has.
I'd like even more it if their MGs have a very small following.

The artists popularity and awards has no bearing on whether I like the music. Female, 19 and from LA... why would that even matter to me?
I don't like BE's music, and I find her personality annoying - so her being the host (and not just MG) makes this a must-miss for me.

I always find it fascinating when someone selects something that society has given it's stamp of approval as great, and they dismiss it with a "Well, I don't like it," and they don't think anybody is supposed to think that is odd.

I have never particularly liked watermelon. I have never once been able to decline watermelon without getting blow-back and a lot of WTF.

So, you don't have to explain, but don't be surprised that you're getting some WTF for expressing such a strong dislike for Billie Eilish.

I agree with you there - very bangable.

Wouldn't have imagined they'd parody Walking in Memphis in 2021 - nevermind having an appearance by Marc Cohn.
Most under 30 watching probably never heard this song.

Simu was good.

I think Kenan described this current season best when he said, "It's not really music. It's not really comedy. It's basically nothing."

Who is this Judge Jeanie they keep doing? Is she on the supreme court or something?

She's a loud obnoxious Fox News host. Granted, that doesn't really narrow it down much.

"Republican or Not" was very funny.

How about every viewer who lives outside the tri-state area, and thus has no interest in a bunch of very specific jokes about one NYC borough.

Yeah, Davidson seems to go down the Staten Island jokes well too often, and it's usually about characteristics of the place I didn't know.

How lucky is Windom that he/she has never seen the real Judge Jeanine before?

Re: SNL 11/20/21 (S47E07) H: Simu Liu - MG: Saweetie

Aside from the musical guest, I thought this was a really solid show. They didn't bend over backwards to feature the host in every sketch, often just giving him a minor role. The strength of SNL has always been in the cast. We might quote Christopher Walken shouting "More cowbell!", but the funny of that sketch was always Will Ferrell.

That said, I thought the sketches were solid the entire 90 minutes. The karaoke one was funny, even though I don't go to karaoke that often I've definitely seen the types depicted in the bit. Really loved Bowen Yang realizing he wasn't gonna be able to hit the higher notes, the "comedians", and the person who was signed up by their friend although in my experience they just end up half-ass mumbling their way through the song.

The cake sketch, the Republican-or-Not, the man-dog soldier, all worked.

I thought Simu did great and really gave his all into each character and sketch he was given.

I swear that every time that I see this week's host's name, I think that it's the guy on the left:

I was paying you a compliment. But how dare you accuse me of watching Fox News I've only seen that insane bat in clips online and different shows where they're making fun of her too.

Yeah, that's the only way I know about her, by seeing her mocked on a bunch of other shows.

Wow, color me shocked but the skit with Simu and Bowen Yang was pretty funny. It's rare Yang gets a laugh out of me too. Overall a decent show, I was worried after the first skit with Karaoke which I ended up FF thru. I also skipped the musical guest as I don't like rap.

Very high usage ratio for Keenan this week. He was in almost every skit. Not that I'm complaining, I like him. But since Beck Bennett left, they've really been leaning on Keenan.

Has Kate appeared this season yet?
