And DeNiro will always be cool, no matter how hard he tries otherwise.

And he was EVERYWHERE...even in the skit before the theme. A good job, though, even if too many skits relied on his normal tough guy image. One of the better shows of the season, though nothing special.

The open was a little racist, but funny in a sophomoric way. The Thomas Jefferson Likes Black Chicks skit was inspired, but the execution was questionable. Judge Horace will most likely recur, I think.

The McDonalds parody commercial was hilarious. "The Big N' Tasty is not God."

THANK GOD LORNE BROUGHT THE POEHLER. Our Amy Index for Ep 28.7 = 36% (4/11 skits, minus the monologue which had only DeNiro, but including Update.) That's perfectly acceptable, and a marked improvement over our approximate 5% over the last two original shows (McCain & Murphy.)

The Peter Pan skit was very funny.

The McDonalds commercial parody was also funny. Sort of reminded me of the classic "Happy Fun Ball".

Update was also funny. I didn't like the Sopranos joke though, and neither did the audience.

Norah Jones was pretty good.

I also liked the car dealership skit, as well as Deniro telling a bedtime story to Kattan.

The last skit with the bears was oddly funny.

Overall, I thought the show was very good. DeNiro was a pretty good host. Next week, Al Gore hosts, with musical guest Phish(!). That should be interesting.

Chris Kattan is still on the show...he's venturing into Tim Meadows territory here, isn't he?

Seven years and one Meet The Fockers later, I no longer stand by this statement.

You couldn't have known. Nobody could have known.

I'm not sure what it means, but I can't remember a single sketch referred to in this thread. (although... I may have still been working graves and not catching SNL regularly in 2002)

Actually, Darrell Hammond has been on longer than Chris Kattan. This is Hammond's 8th season, and Kattan's 7/1/2th season. Meadows was on for 9/1/2/ seasons. That's the record.

I didn't really care for this episode. De Niro just cannot do live comedy...he looked uncomfortable the entire night.

The only good skits were the bedtime story and the radioactive bears...special mention to Harvey Keitel's hilarious cameo as Siegfried.

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed with the episode. I'm not sure if it was DeNiro or the sketches. There were some funny moments, but something was definitely missing. (besides Fallon's awful phone-in delivery of Update this week)

I thought DeNiro looked uncomfortable too. The funniest thing I saw all night was the McDonalds spoof.

Does anyone know if there is a word-for-word transcription of that anywhere on the web?

It's not up yet, but try http://snltranscripts.jt.org/ in a few days. They eventually get most all of the new episodes transcribed, plus older ones.

from snltranscripts.jt.org:

McDonald's Big N' Tasty

Announcer.....Chris Parnell
Voiceover.....Jim Downey




Announcer: McDonald's new Big N' Tasty! It's what you crave! The Big N' Tasty is a juicy quarter-pound all-beef patty, served with crisp lettuce and tomato on a sesame seed bun!

Jive Voice: Can you taste it?

Announcer: Mmm-hmm! Big and tasty!

Voiceover: In response to pending legal action, the McDonald's Corporation would like to present the following statement:

[ statements over SUPER ]

"The Big N' Tasty Sandwich is food."

"Scientific studies suggest that excessive consumption of food may cause weight gain. In other words, if you stuff your greasy pie hole non-stop, youre probably going to pork up."

"The McDonald's Corporation had previously believed that this was obvious to all but very small children and morons. Since children and morons are valued customers of McDonald's Corporation, we would like to point out other potential risks that could be associated with the Big N' Tasty."

"The Big N' Tasty is intended to be eaten. Complications may arise from shoving the Big N' Tasty up your nose. Dropping the Big N' Tasty from extremely tall buildings may cause the Big N' Tasty to achieve sufficient terminal velocity, to injure innocent people below."

"The Big N' Tasty should not be used as an artificial heart."

"The McDonald's Corporation seriously doubts anyone would try this, but, hey, if you didn't know gorging yourself on hamburgers might turn you fatass, then anything's possible."

"According to United States Law, the Big N' Tasty cannot perform the duties of a Legal Guardian. If you were to go into McDonald's and say, "Hey, Big N' Tasty, take care of my kids while I run some errands," you may face legal action."

"Theoretically, the Big N' Tasty could be mistaken for a weapon during a police stand-off."

"Marriage ceremonies officiated by the Big N' Tasty are not recognized in any of the contiguous 48 states."

"The Big N Tasty is not God."

"For questions about any additional use of the Big N' Tasty - other than eating, please consult our web site."

Announcer: Come on! It's big, it's tast,y and it's waiting for you at McDonald's!

Voiceover: For the small children or morons, McDonald's is the red and yellow restaurant on the highway. Remember to bring money.

Jive Voice: Big N' Tasty!
