Local New Yorker coming off a Golden Globe win… riding high.

Big time rapper gets COVID, then they get a fill in with Bleachers.

We’ll see what happens.

It’s just Bleachers . No “The”. They’re one of my favorite current bands, lead by super-producer Jack Antanoff. Their biggest hit was about five years ago with the song “I Wanna Get Better”.

My apologies. I've updated the list but will ask a Mod to edit the thread title.

Bleachers is a big upgrade (IMO at least) over Ricch. Still, this will likely be one of the least watched SNLs to date.

And kudos to Antonoff on his post-Dunham dating game.

Hoping for a good show. Obviously, nobody gives a shit about an unknown host, so hopefully the writing is strong, it's not host-centric, and lots of Cecily and Kate.

Didn’t realize he was dating Margaret Qually. That is a major step up from Lena Dunham (though both played Manson disciples in OUaTiH). Don't expect to see a music video collaboration with Pete Davidson in this one.

Stop. Seeing. Spider-man.

Next week is Will Forte and Maneskin - which is just I dunno, an Italian glam rock-ish band with catchy but bad songs.

Half-time report: This episode suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. Not blaming the host; they are hardly using her.

Yeah this episode seemed off. There were a couple funny lines but nothing really worked.

Indeed. I didn't laugh once. And that "Sound of Music" sketch was one of the most embarrassing things they've ever done. How did that get past a table read?

I thought maybe two or 3 weeks ago they could have repeated the John Madden 1982 episode when they air the classic shows at 10pm.

Who was that hot blonde dhick with the guitar in Bleachers?

No Aristotle Athari in this episode and want to see more of him on the show.

Weekend Update was good and Elmo

Too bad they could not get Jay Pharoah to do Shaq on the TNT sketch.

Urkel had some laughs

Why do I have a feeling it was that this will be the best episode of the season…?

Urkel and Fineman’s Elmo we’re good and that’s about it.

Was hoping Jost and Che would do the Christmas joke swap since they couldn’t do it on the last episode.

Why couldn't this episode be canceled by Omicron instead of the Paul Rudd one?

Except for some select clips with Eddie Murphy, Lorne does not let that era exist.

Probably because it wasn't him, right?

Yeah, not a good show. I didn't make it to the second Bleachers performance, but I liked the first one. Music was good not great, but the band's energy was unmatched. I'll never understand why pre-packaged pop groups with careful choreography is more popular than bands just having fun playing real instruments and living in the moment.

I'm old enough to have been raised on rock bands that played their instruments and just jumped and ran around on stage, when and if they chose to do so, so i get where you are coming from. "Careful choreography" is part of the performance. The acts you decry are presenting a complete stage production. They have costumes and even do costume changes.

Imagine if you went to see a stage production of West Side Story, and the director decided to just focus on the singing in the musical numbers and told everyone else on stage just "be in the moment" and dance around however they felt.

This inclusion of choreography in the performance of pop music has certainly been around since the early 1990s, so your consistent astonishment at its existence is odd. But more so, it is an aspect of what it means to present a pop music stage show that young audiences understand and appreciate, and from some artists, absolutely expect. Nowadays, people watch dance competition shows, and dancing means knowing choreographed steps, not just jumping around and swaying to the music.

Yes, it is much more Broadway (at best) and Disneyland stage show (at worst) than ROCK N ROLL BABY, but in 2022 is that still a surprise?

Dunno why but that just made think of the Turnstile performance on Seth Meyers a few weeks ago. I've been weirdly enjoying his musical guests lately. Even if they're just rhyming chaise longue and all day long over and over again.

SNL has to go with whatevers hot (usually) to get viewers to tune in, Bleachers probably doesn't apply but they're a local Brooklyn band that can fill in in a pinch. Plus Antonoff had his dad rocking guitar on SNL which I'm sure he loved.

^^ Basically, when the music sucks - you have to keep people interested with choreography.
