SNL's on in a few minutes and from the commercials I can tell Rock is going to be in a Brian Fellow's skit and in another one - he's the bartendar at a gay bar or something....

Rock's funny and all but I REALLY hope he brought someone with him. :)

I'm glad someone is wrestling finally made an "it's all fake" joke about other forms of entertainment.

And nice recovery on that tome/tomb slip.

Man, does SNL suck. I liked the Rock, but only Will Farrelln is the only funny guy on the show. I think the writers and cast have sandbagged this season and its a shame too since Rock is usually great with improv.

I hope they get a kick in the butt soon, the news format is stupid, the jokes are stale and the actors are going through the motions. The first Rock episode was better, but thats because he had better material to work with and the trio of Mick, HHH and Big Show ruled as well.

A Fan- 38 hours awake and going strong...zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

ONLY good part of the show. Everything else sucked a fat one and I like SNL.

That skit with the Rock as Bigfoot and Ferrell as Neil Diamond was hilarious.

I didn't catch SNL, but every time I do, I'm awestruck at how un-funny Will Ferrell is. Good god, he tried as hard as he could to bring down Jay and Silent Bob. A modern day Chevy Chase. Sheesh.

I thought everyone but Will Farell was funny. Honestly, does the man have another gag other than being "sexy?"

Hello, QVC? My name is Brian Fellows! I'd like to order a solid gold bird cage!

That must have been the only good skit on tonight. I didn't find any of the skits rocky was in to be especially funny. And good god, why are they making him sing?

oi thank god for Undergrads or else Saturday Night TV viewing would have been a total bust. (HEH there's only 13 episodes of that show and yet it blows almost anything on television out of the water.)I guess SNL's heading for aother dark age with shows like the one last night. (Hey don't mean to sound so negitive but this is a Internet wrestling forum is it not? )

It wasn`t as good as the first time, but I still liked Rock`s SNL hosting. I`ve never been an "everything sucks on SNL" person (nor do I ever say that about WWF TV). The Neil Diamond thing was hillariously bizarre. The only Rock skit that sorta fell flat was the Scorpion Prince one, and even that had his flubbed line, which was pretty funny.

hey, lay off Brian Fellows. Birds ARE plotting against us.

As far as the musical entertainment goes:

A bunch of posers singing surfer-dude "hey, let's party!" lyrics against a faux-metal background is as lame as it gets.

And good god, why are they making him sing?

Anyone else figure that Rocky asked THEM if he could sing? He fancies himself something of a crooner (how lame was the Jimmy Buffet thing with Stone Cold a while back?)

As a crooner, he's a good wrestler....

Wondering if we'll see Gay Ass Billy Gunn and Chuck swoon over that bartendnder performance in a backstage skit sometime soon?

The opening skit, Brian Fellows, Scorpion King, and Gene Shalit were good. Not anything I would want to tape and save but good.

As for Andrew WK, why did he do the same song twice? Is that the only song they know? They sucked big time.

The reason Rock didn't bring along any other wrestlers is because he was there to hype The Scorpion King. Last time he was there to hype Wrestlemania. He brought his opponents for the upcoming 4-way match.

And, WHAT? You don't like the current news format? I think this news crew is the best yet (and I HAVE seen all of the incarnations- Norm MacDonald is number 2). The format is the same as the original cast (and season 2 gets number 3 honors for Jane Curtain/Dan Akroyd). Of course, Tina Fey helps a lot (right, Big Bad?)

Also, Tracy Morgan has been stealing shows like Eddie Guerrero the past two weeks- Brian Fellows and Spaceman Jones are the best recurring characters since Wayne and Garth.

Some skits were better than others. I was cracking up at the Hardline one. I treated that subway skit like a APA match and made some nachos. Overall, I think the show was subpar, but not because of The Rock. The humor just wasn't there in most of it.

Andrew WK sucked. Did he even sing more than five lyrics in any of those songs? And they shouldn't have used those lights in the background if it gives him seziures.

I didn't see the whole show, just the monologue and "tome/tomb" screwup.The Rock did an alright job, I guess. I haven't watched an entire episode of SNL in a while. The only reason I stop and watch is for Darrell Hammond and the weekend update.

andrew w.k. whooped the donkey's ass in a wesley willis way.

i think snl is hitting another golden age. the news segment is definitely one of the best yet and it's great to see one of the anchors in a bunch of other skits as well.

I think last night's show was missing something. I think maybe because there were no other wrestlers on the show. IMO, I liked the show. It may not have been as great as the last time, but we live in different times since then. For one thing, wrestling isn't as big as it was in March 2000. ALso, they concetrated on Rock-Hollywood Star, then Rock-WWF Superstar (notice there were no wrestling related sketches like the last one? But there were scoprion king one which I thought was funny :)Speaking of which, there was only 1 mention of wrestling all night!) I think the Rock is a great actor and can make it big in Hollywood, but in comedy, he needs someone just as funny or funnier to help him through it. (that's why his first comedy movie is a buddy-buddy flick) But not to say I hated the show. Brian Fellows was a'ight. The Scorpion King and the Gay Bar one were funny especially when Rock messed up his lines. I didn't like the emergency one, but the sketch of the night has GOT to be the Bigfoot one. That was just so damn bizarre that I laughed the entire time. Will Ferrel's lines were unforgettable. ("I don't know if this is real, I'm STONED out of my mind. My so-called friend gave me what I thought was just a regular dose of LSD, ...and Donkey crap. I'm gonna kill Steve (I forgot his last name!)" And Rock with the red butt. LOL. Also, did anyone see John Leguamao's sexaholick last night? I thought it was good but his last one was better.
