Here's hoping it's great as its hosts.

I saw the hosts in the thread title and I will actually give the show a try for the first time in years. If they can't get it right with these two, it's even worse than I remember.

So does it only count as one half for each of them when adding to their hosting count?

Martin Short hosted with the amigos in Season 12 then solo in Seasons 22 and 38. Now he’s co-hosting with Steve in Season 48.

The monologue said this is his third round, so there must be a fraction in there.

Not a bad show so far… that Christmas Carol sketch with the coins - that went a direction that I wasn’t prepared for.

Martin looks like older Christian Slater with dark hair.

He hosted - regardless if he co-hosted... still counts as hosting.
It's not like football where a couple defensive players share a sack.

Re: SNL 12/10/22 (S48E08) — H: Steve Martin & Martin Short - MG: Brandi Carlile

First show this year where I watched the musical guest.

The monologue made me realize that I had no idea if Steve Martin (see what I did there, RichC2) had any children. I've never heard him mention it.

The energy on this show was so positive. Both hosts love to perform, they love each other, the cast loved being on stage with them. It felt to me like there was a general enthusiasm in every performer that was making the LIVE segments crackle in a way that it does not most weeks, and even if every sketch was not great, it just made it more enjoyable to watch, even from home.

Yeah, that sketch was nuts. Fun episode overall, those two made good hosts as usual.

Agreed about it being a fun and energetic episode. Martin and Short really elevated the episode - even when a sketch didn't fully work.

The Christmas Carol thing was insane and great.
The Please Don't Destroy guys should be in every episode.

Martin Short still gets mileage out of that bit where he dances with his knees together.

I never really got into the whole Ed Grimley character. Even when it got it's own cartoon in the 80s.

Chloe's Scarlett Johansson impression sounded nothing like her.

One of the first times in awhile that I was looking forward to the hosts and musical guest and they didn't disappoint.

The Christmas Carol was great

As we see the new cast more I am seeing Sarah Sherman as the new breakout star taking on all the parts that would have previously gone to Kate McKinnon.

When she isn't wearing that mullet hairstyle she is actually pretty cute. She gives me strong Emma Stone vibes, especially with her screamy hoarse voice. Wasn't a fan of her recurring weekend update character riffing with Colin Jost so I'm glad to see she can do much more.

The new black guy Devon Walker is so close to looking like a black Pete Davidson it's hard to look past it sometimes. Really wish Chris Redd would have stuck around for a few more seasons.

I'm also really liking Michael Longfellow, the guy who keeps time during the weekend updates to do a little comedy monologue. I read that he came from a comedy club background so he is in his wheelhouse there but his stuff always gives me a chuckles and he's got good timing.

While definitely a trademark of the Grimley character (which I too was never a fan of), Martin Short just seems compelled to do that dance in almost any of his appearances, regardless of character. Like the famous synchronized swimming bit, I remember him doing that dance as his "warm-up"

Yeah, he does that same dance with his Jackie Rogers Jr character, which is pretty much an albino Ed Grimley.

Exactly, and other characters too.

However, "Gimme a C! A bouncy C!" will never NOT be funny.

Re: SNL 12/10/22 (S48E08) — H: Steve Martin & Martin Short - MG: Brandi Carlile

I honestly feel this was the strongest SNL in a decade as far as I can remember. the only skit that fell flat for me was the one with Heid and Martin doing the talk show. The cold open went on too long as well but I could have watched the opening monolog for another hour of those two roasting one another.

Also Brandi Carlile was pretty amazing and was clearly having the time of her life. The first musical guest in quite a while where I listened to both songs in full. Pretty sure "the story" was played live which is also pretty unusual but the second song seemed like it may have been lip-synched as the backup singer seemed to make a mistake at one point. ETA it's nice to see the brothers from Breaking Bad/BCS landed on their feet and are playing with Brandi now.

The Christmas Carol sketch was hilarious.

I also liked the bit where they were ragging on the guys ex-girlfriend.

I was hoping for an Ed Grimley appearance, but alas.

Not much else was particularly memorable.
