Hot of off Top Gun: Maverick... and still trying to distance himself from The Fantastic Four, it's Miles Teller.



Kendrick Lamar looks happy to be there.

I thought maybe when one of those promos did not appear this week, they had decided to stop doing them. And this one is Exhibit A for why they should.

Besides the fact that Lamar looks like he would rather be somewhere having his nuts chewed on by an angry dog, the "jokes" are so not funny. A Gilmore Girls joke? Yikes!

If this is any indication of what the comedy on the episode will be like . . .

Hey, my out of touch old ass actually knows who the host and musical guest are for the first time in a long time. Still not watching.

Punkie Johnson, who barely appears on the show, gets promoted to regular cast, but the guy who plays Trump or Biden in a major sketch every week does not.

Every featured player has to do two seasons before they get promoted to the main cast. So, Punkie’s been promoted (along with Andrew Dismukes) because they’re in their third year, while James Austin Johnson (Trump) is only in his second year. He’ll get promoted next year if he sticks around or unless Lorne fires him.

Teller’s Peyton Manning in the open was really good I thought.

Cecily Strong wasn't there and wasn't even in the opening credits. Google tells me she just wasn't around to get filmed for the credits.
If I recall correctly, I think she missed some episodes last year and wasn't in all that many sketches overall. I suspect she wont be around after this season.

The cold open was really good. Everything was decent for the first few skits until they got to the toilet paper bear thing and it just went downhill from there.

Miles Teller was good.

Cecily Strong is starring in a stage play in LA until the end of the month.

Lots of BIG costumes in this show. Big costumes = big comedy?

Yeah, I developed a lot more respect for Miles Teller for doing that, as well as showing the video of him and his sister imitating the Spartan cheerleaders.

Had to go back and watch it on youtube to find out that big celebrity cameo in the cold open was Shaun White. Shaun White? Why him?

Yeah, him being used for a cameo seemed pretty random. Judging by their reaction, most of the audience didn't know who it was either.

With Davidson gone, that put Michael Che and Mikey Day back-to-back in the intro credits... and the similarity and rhyming sounds kind of funny.

Miles Teller's Peyton Manning was great. I actually thought it was the real Peyton Manning at first, since he hosts that game show on NBC.

Also liked "I want to break open your bones and suck the marrow;" thought it was hilarious.

And then there was fucking horrible sketch with the Charmin Bears. I think the only way that got onto was the show is they paid for the bear costumes before they wrote it. The only thing that would have saved the sketch would have been Jon Hamm, Peyton, and Eli Manning ripping on it.

"Swole Grimace" could have been funny, but it just felt like an idea they liked, but couldn't write a decent sketch around it.

You'd think with three months off, the writers would bank up some good sketches for the premiere.

Very good.

And the episode went all downhill from that.

The Daily Beast really slammed the cold open: https://www.thedailybeast.com/snl-ki...ketch?ref=home

I thought it was inspired. First of all, the acknowledgment of going too many times to the well of "just re-create some political event that happened this week", with the clever device of having it critiqued by the viral Manningcast. Sure, 15-20 years from now when the novelty of Manningcast is long over and we'll have to explain to our kids what it even was, but that just means there's a short shelf-life to making the parody and they got it done in exactly the right time. Then the excellent impression of Peyton Manning by Miles Teller is just the icing on the cake.

This was one of the best things SNL has done in years.

It seemed Bowen Yang was in every sketch and got the most pops and probably in the lead to replace McKinnon as the face of the show.

I liked Michael Longfellow on Weekend Update and he should get more screen time.

Whenever Brian Austin Johnson does a Trump sketch I zone out and become bored.

I didn’t even know that was him. Fantastic job. Loved the cold open with the Manning’s picking apart the new cast and basically joking about how shitty the show has become.

The ending of that skit would make no sense if you didn't know Teller was playing Peyton, though. He was fantastic and I didn't recognize him at first (because they have so many additions to the cast).

Never been a Miles Teller fan (the punchable face thing) but I thought he did a fine job as host.

Is this the first time they have had 2 musical guests on an episode, one being a host? Strange paring of Kd Lang and Kendrick Lamar.

Timberlake wasn't always his own musical guest, was he?

Adele had H.E.R.
Johnny Cash had Elton John

Keep in mind that that was not as serious question, guys. Someone just wanted to make a joke that Miles Teller looks like kd lang.
