SNL 05/11/24 (S49E19) — H: Maya Rudolph - MG: Vampire Weekend

This Maya’s third time hosting since she left SNL in 2007. Sure, she’s made a lot of guest appearances over the years, but not as a host. Were more than likely going to get a “Cowboy Carter”-esque spoof and maybe a couple othe resurrected characters.

This Vampire Weedend’s fourth appearance on the show (starting back in 2008).

I don’t know if this paring was coincidental or not, but VW’s lead, Ezra Koenig lives with and has a child with Rashida Jones, who is a life-long family friend of Maya Rudolph. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jones shows up for this episode.

I think he's a new cast member. Not sure of his name. Weird for them to add someone so near the end of the season. I think he was in that Fat Albert movie that come out like 20 years ago.

The long and hot boring summer is almost here with no more new SNL after May 18.

I got emotional during the cold open Mother's Day thing. OK, I cried.

Meh episode. I like Rudolph - she really commits to her act. She broke character for a few seconds by laughing - not sure I saw that from her before.

Funny that Rudolph left SNL in 2007 and tonight, 17 years later, Keenan's still there for her to work with again. 21 seasons is nuts and makes Hammond's 14 seasons (2nd most) look like nothing by comparison.

She is getting lots of good coverage online for that 'mother' opening dance routine. it's too bad the whole idea was stolen from RuPaul and Scissor Sisters 10 years ago. I guess that's how long you have to wait until one generation forgets and the new one thinks its something fresh and new...

Maya Rudolph is good, not great. Most of her characters come off as shrill and one note. The Beyonce Hot Ones bit was funny the first time, this time it was just more of the same and didn't deliver. I think she's better as an actress than as a comedian. I can't think of many memorable skits she has been in altho the Donatella Versace was always good.

She did the Prince show as Beyonce and the Bronx Beat with Amy Poehler.

I'm sure almost nobody remembered it, but I'm pretty sure this is the ad that they were spoofing in the coffee commercial sketch.

Wow, good catch! I vaguely remember seeing this on TV as a kid. It's definitely what they were spoofing. Who in the writers room is old enough or familiar enough with the original to write that skit???
I hope they weren't suggesting legendary national treasure Lauren Bacall acted so badly on set! Sad that she ever had to resort to making this commercial for some obscure coffee brand. She was in To Have and Have Not/Key Largo/The Big Sleep/Dark Passage for fucks sake.

It's one level of sadness to see a film legend doing some crappy ad for instant coffee. It takes it to another level when it's a coffee brand no one has ever heard of.

I was wondering who else would remember that bit. I only remembered it a few years ago when my school, Kansas, played a basketball game against some tiny school called High Point (I laughed, then posted that commercial in the College Basketball thread at the time). I have to assume this is a bit that Maya has done for years for herself - Lauren Bacall coffee commercial and she maybe pitched it as a concept?
Also while Bacall did several films with (and had a relationship with) Bogie, she wasn't in Casablanca. In fact her first film was in 1944, the year after Casablanca came out.

Beyonce Hot Ones might be the most memorable thing that lives on from this episode.

Nah, it didn't do it for me, but the thing that will live on is the production number monologue
