I wish they show a old clip with a Norm MacDonald OJ after weekend update or Che and Jost did a OJ joke in the spirt of Norm Macdonald.

That be the ultimate FU to the Juice.

They could say OJ passed away, and then say here is a video remembrance of him, and have it be a montage of Norm ripping on how OJ was a murderer.

I think they're required to show a "in memoriam" card for OJ because he did host SNL once.

The “In Memoriam” segment should just be 5 minutes of Norm McDonald’s OJ jokes.

Re: SNL 04/13/24 (S49E17) — H: Ryan Gosling - MG: Chris Stapleton

I'm going to quote part of a port-OJ's death article from Variety

In his book “Top of the Rock,” Littlefield also remembered how much Ohlmeyer was by Simpson’s side, often to the “detriment” of NBC. “Don spent countless afternoons in prayer sessions with O.J. and Rosey Grier. He was at the L.A. County jail far more frequently than he was in the office.”

. . .

Preston Beckman, who was NBC’s head of scheduling at the time recalled the network’s daily 2:30 p.m. programming meetings — and how the Simpson trial was always in the air, yet never discussed. Ohlmeyer would quickly leave to see Simpson after those meetings.

“It was always hanging over us, what was going on. We all knew where Don was off to as soon as the meeting was over,” Beckman said. “We knew it was a topic not to bring up or discuss in that room… I remember a few weeks after the verdict, he called me and Warren up to his office and sort of thanked us for the way we handled all of it. We were able to continue to work and do our jobs and never bring it up with him. We kind of just accepted what was going on and didn’t make an issue of it. And that was that.”

Well, not quite. Although Ohlmeyer never publicly cited Norm MacDonald's O.J. Simpson jokes as a reason (he didn’t mince words about Simpson as the killer) — and even former execs like Beckman can’t confirm this for sure — it’s widely documented that his dislike for the comedian led to Macdonald’s ouster as “Weekend Update” anchor on “Saturday Night Live.”

“It’s possible; I do know Don always had a bug up his ass about Norm Macdonald; maybe that was the reason,” Beckman said. “That was an ongoing complaint of his. ‘We gotta get rid of him.’ It’s possible.”
I just love that they still want to play it as a mystery why Ohlmeyer wanted Norm gone.

The guy is leaving work to go pray with OJ in jail, while Norm is pretty much calling OJ a murderer on TV, but we can't put the pieces of that puzzle together.

Agree about the Norm stuff. And as I mentioned in the OJ thread, it's a shame that Norm didn't live to see this. In a perfect world, OJ would have been dead long ago, and Norm would still be with us today. And fuck Ohlmeyer

Gosling didn’t make it through a sketch without breaking, it was funny at first but it was annoying by the end.

2 weeks without a Please Don’t Destroy short, Lorne but have even noticed how bad they’ve been recently.

Yeah, but it was all worth it when Heidi Gardner turned around and just lost her shit at Mikey Day as Butthead. I'm wondering if he pulled a "Farley" and played it up in the actual performance compared to rehearsals because it sure looked like she had not seen the costume till she turned around.

I'm guessing that was the first time she saw them in full makeup with the way she lost it

I don't think Fallon ever broke as much as Gosling in this episode.

The Papyrus 2 Avatar font sketch online exclusive was ok and it had Kyle Mooney in it.

I think maybe the first time SNL advertised a bonus clip at the end of the show.

The first song by Chris Stapleton "White Horse" was pretty good and I am not a country fan.

Chloe Fineman as Erin Brockovich

Chris Stapleton was amazing as usual. Even got in on a sketch.

Of course they would do another alien abduction sketch, because on SNL when something works once they beat it do death.

Hearing a lot of people saying on twitter saying the beavis and butthead sketch was the funniest in ______ (months/years). Don’t mean to be a stick in the mud but it was just ok to me. It looked like them which was funny but them breaking did little for me.

I don't follow sports so I have no idea who Caitlin Clark or Michael Longfellow are.

Caitlin Clark just finished her basketball career at Iowa. Set all time men and women’s scoring record (and others).

I don't follow sports either but even I know who she is, she's been all over the news for quite awhile now. Not sure if he's joking about Longfellow.

Nice to have Colleen back. That's one recurring sketch that never gets old. Too bad Squirm didn't have more to do in it.

I'm guessing that Caitlin Clark was sprung on Che. Probably payback for that civil rights activist they had on torment Colin earlier.

One of the stronger episodes in recent memory. Even the musical guest wasn't awful and I don't even like country music.

Like or hate the "Colleen Rafferty" sketches (I'm in the former category...sure it's the same thing every time, but so is "What's Up With That" and I laugh my ass off at that one every time), you gotta admire the creativity in coming up with new rhyming slang terms for Colleen's private parts in every outing. "My juicer and my deucer".

I don't follow sports closely, especially not women's college basketball, but I have a TV and the internet. If anyone has been able to avoid hearing about her for the past couple months, I can't imagine how that was possible.

I don’t have regular tv/ cable but do have the internet. Didn’t know who she was until
last night. I probably “heard” her name once or twice as one of the cohosts of one of the daily news shows I watch also hosts a weekly sports show and they ask her what the sports show is covering once a day on the news program and she gives a 30 second rundown but I’m never paying attention when she does as I don’t follow sports at all.

Did watch 10 minutes of highlights of Clark last night though after SNL. Very impressive.

Yes because she's the first in this generation to an extreme switch. I know that one because for whatever reason it comes up in the regular news.
