I was wondering if Martin Short and Steve Martin might show up, then I remembered they’re doing a show in my city tonight.

Maybe they will show up at your house.

I remember the old days when I knew who the musical guests were.

Probably a pre-recorded skit

That sounds like a You problem. I'm not a fan of his music but if you've never heard of him, you're probably totally out of touch with modern music.

From his Wikipedia entry:

Among the best-selling music artists with over 80 million records sold,[8]Malone has won 10 Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, one MTV Video Music Award, and has received six Grammy Award nominations.[9] He holds several Billboard chart records: he is the first solo artist to top the Rap Airplay and Adult Contemporary charts, while "Circles" set the record for longest climb to number one (41 weeks) on the Adult Contemporary chart by a solo artist.[10]

If you saw Into the Spider-verse, you heard this:



And a personal favorite of mine:

Post Malone has been pretty huge the last 5 years, dunno how you've avoided him but props I think?

The animated music video he did for Into the Spider-verse has 1.8 billion views but it looks like the rest of his stuff is stuck at 100m to 1b views.

I like the guy but less so for his music and more so because he actually has some talent behind all that autotune and is entertaining.

Britney Spears has sold millions of albums too. Doesn't mean she is any good.

I also avoid superhero films when I can so didn't see that Spider-Man movie.

But you know who she is, right? You were up to date with music as recently as 1998.

Not knowing who Post Malone is like knowing who Taylor Swift is.

He has been around for a couple of years now

I agree with you on the superhero movies

This episode should be the finale and the Natasha Lyonne should should be on tonight.

Nobody was arguing that But most of us know who they are through circumstance.

It's like a 5 year old's crayon scribbles, in permanent form.

I couldn't name or recognize one Post Malone song. And if it weren't for the face tattoos, I wouldn't recognize him.

But I've heard of him. I know his name as that of a successful contemporary singer.

Saying "I've never heard of" a famous person doesn't make them less famous. It just says something about you.

Thunderstorms here and the satellite is out. Will I be able to watch the skits on YouTube shortly after the show, or do I have to wait until sometime Sunday?

What a dud episode. I didn't laugh at anything besides the Sarah/Colin SNL segment that cracks me up every time.
Oh yeah and Steve Martin's gag gift manufacturer.
But nothing else worked for me.

Agree. Selena was really cute tonight. But as hard as she tried, the show overall was not good. And lucky us, Bowen Yang was in several sketches. I saw an article this week that said Lorne is looking to make some major changes on the show next season. About time. How about starting with trimming down the number of cast members? And then bring in new writers. Also, in a perfect world, get rid of Yang.

I thought it was one of the best shows of the season and the best one since the Oscar Isaac show.

I like Post Malone but whoever does or makes up his beats is probably the true genius.

He has a goofy personality and should host in the future.

Baby Yoda and the baby twins at the end was crazy

Dude Nudes

The Irish play and Johnny Depp cold open was the weak parts of the show.

I assume Sarah Sherman could be the person that could be the next Kate McKinnon and get more sketches though I don't want Kate to go.

At first I was impressed at the acrobatic prowess of Bowen and Sarah... and then I saw the doubles as they were cutting to commercial and breaking down the set.

This here. The show works best when the cast is a solid 8 or 9 talented performers, not the bloated 18 or so they have now.
