Figured I'd start an SNL thread since ol' Dwayne hosting might've drawn a few extra eyes to the show tonight. And hopefully so, since this was one of the funniest episodes of the season. Rock did his usual solid-to-very good hosting job and I loved that the show (for a change) actually featured mostly just straight comedy sketches rather than pop culture-specific bits that will be dated by May. The alien co-hosting the talk show, the 'Jon Bovi opposite band' and the MacGruber bits were the highlights.

Man, I thought it was just an awful, dreadful show full of unfunnyness that not even The Famous Rock could save. I may need to start drinking earlier.

The Rock was great in the Hawaii sketch.

I laughed hard at the alien sketch. Its always the absurd stuff that works best on SNL, and Hader was awesome in this one.

McCain throwing himself out of the window was pretty hilarious, too.

I loved the Jon Bovi sketch the first time they did it, but I have no idea why they would do it again for Weekend Update.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

The Rock Obama was pretty funny. And the McGyver/Mcgruber father/son skits were pretty good too. Definitely better than the Pepsuber commerical that aired at the Super Bowl. But after that, the show just DIED. The activia bit was awful and the weekend update just fell totally flat. I haven't watched SNL regularly in about 4-5 years and last night didn't give me a good reason to start doing so again.

It could have been saved with a sketch featuring Rock and Timberlake. That's the least they could have done.

Yeah count me in on the this show sucked side. Rock Obama was somewhat amusing skit. The alien sketch didn't get one chuckle. McGruber was a decent laugh the first few times but they have completely killed the joke dead. Now they're just performing necrophelia on the corpse. Activia=sucked. Weekend update=sucked(aside from JT). Only good sketch to me was the Hawaii one.

Really? Bill Hader's expressions and noises once the water hit him were hysterical as was Dwayne's crazy "sportscaster hair" toupee.

I got a good many chuckles out of the Hawaii sketch. I mean, it wasn't the best thing ever in the history of ever, but it was good I thought.

I didn't care for the alien skit either. They beat the one joke into the ground.

Overall, the Rock was good but the material brought him down...EXCEPT for the final skit with the lighthouse. That was perhaps the best last skit I've seen since the Barry Gibb show.

I saw various links to "The Rock Obama" and it looked like it'd be total hilarity. Man, was I disappointed. That sketch had a lot of potential and they went in the most boring direction possible. The rest of the show wasn't much better.

What happened here? This should have been an easy thumbs up.

Agreed. Great idea, poorly executed.

MaGruber was great as always. The show has been very up and down this year. The episode with Rosario Dawson was one of the worst episodes I have ever seen, and that is saying A LOT. They must have had the bad drugs that night.

Knowing Gareth Edwards' previous film, there is no way that Godzilla is just going to be a rampaging monster in this one. He gets the kaiju-as-metaphor thing.
