7.7 – Christopher Walken (26.20) We have one of the largest collections of new and used Vinyl, CDs, cassettes, and DVD/Blu-ray. A remarkably friendly and open one, I’ve found. 3904: 6.8 (Edward Norton) – ^The Clams (S7) It also meant that Andy, who has made it clear he didn’t see himself as a sketch performer, could have an easy time. Was not for me. 4.8 – Gabourey Sidibe (35.20) For shame, SNL. 5.5 – Melissa McCarthy (37.02) — Lots of pretty funny teases and build-up to Andy dropping the bass, such as the cutaways to the unrelated things he’s doing at his DJ table, like frying eggs. 3911: 6.1 (Drake) — Speaking of the opening title sequence, the theme song is catchy, though I can’t help but notice how similar the melody of it sounds to the theme song from the Girlfriends Talk Show sketches. 7.8 – Alec Baldwin (24.09) One with John and Noel was released one day before it was announced they were fired. 7.0 – LeBron James (S33) The same tired formula and script from all the other sketches. Not to mention all the other cameos from former cast members hogging up roles that need to be going to the in-danger-of-getting-fired featured players who have unfairly gotten no final chance tonight to try saving their SNL tenures, and are instead stuck watching this entire episode from their dressing rooms. Andy says “Well, we already did the ONE…” Lorne enters and gestures to Andy to wrap up the call. It makes no sense why this sketch couldn’t have been set in present day. I think Lorne may have saw how they turned out during rehearsals over the course of the season and didn’t like what he saw, yet hope in his mind they would improve. STARS: **. Still, I have a soft spot for it considering it’s what got 16 year old me into St. Vincent, an artist who still s mean a lot to me to this day. 4.2 – Matthew McConaughey (28.11) The only newbies to do anything other than die from a beat drop were the only ones who are still in the cast next season: Beck, Kyle, and Sasheer (and Colin if you count him). Camp Wicawabe A truly poor and disappointing finish to the season. ), “Have you ever said which of those 3 is your least favorite Stooge?”. I think Andy always kept a bit more distant relationship compared to the others (Fred, Jason, Bill, Kristen). 5.8 – Tina Fey (35.18) 7.3 – Dane Cook (S32) And also Seth Meyers, with 4 years, 8 months, and 12 days. — I had remembered tonight’s “Fuck You, Newbies” episode containing so many former cast member cameos, but had forgotten that it also throws almost as many non-SNL-alum cameos at us. I remember the first night I did standby and it was cool just meeting the cast and seeing my childhood heroes up close. During this “Chandling gets depressed” part tonight, I love this particularly dark line from him: “Grim Reaper’s knockin’ at the door……..and I kinda wanna answer it.” 7.2 – Buck Henry (2.06) The other Digital Short falls flat imo. You can just look at some sketches and tell which pile they’re gonna go in. 6.1 – Steve Carell (S33) – The Boss (S15) – Michael McKean ©News Group Newspapers Limited in England No. 5.3 – Buck Henry (S3) @Blue, I have wondered if Andy just didn’t really want to keep coming back, if he wanted to say he hosted, and he did, and that was enough. 5.5 – Chevy Chase (11.02) That's what sealed it. 7.8 – John Malkovich (34.10), 7.7 – Robin Williams (12.05) The only reason the Vogelchecks made sense was the Michael Sam story. 8.0 – Kyle MacLachlan (16.01) @Jack Yeah I get it that the Reddit people are so protective to the current cast, but still they cannot take some criticism from the people about the show’s current quality. 6.5 – Candice Bergen (13.05) This one was even more appalling than any of the previous ones. Mike at least got a chance to shorts, but it looked as if he was dropped as a live performer. Starting with the next episode, you have *nine* actors still in the cast, the same logo, and the same WU tandem. 4.3 – Robert Hays (6.08) He is known for his work in television as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and as the host of late-night talk show The Tonight Show Starring Also, @Stooge, I couldn’t help but mention this hilariously brutal quote from your original review of the Vogelchecks reunion: “ The worse and worse this sketch kept getting as it progressed, the more I wondered to myself what would be the lesser of three evils: sitting through this colossal laughless waste of time, sitting through a reprisal of The Californians, or sitting through the return of Garth & Kat. I feel like there was a previous time that may have happened that I’m forgetting. I’m glad they were all friendly. 6.8 – Christopher Walken (33.09) 7.4 – Alec Baldwin (37.01) As I said before, I have to be fair in the ratings I give out in this SNL project. – The Diggers (S25), *** © 2020 Verizon Media. 4.7 – Johnny Knoxville (30.18) I don’t think the show feels as sloppy as it did in early season 45 (with multiple cast members breaking every week and the show just throwing in dogs to hide the cracks) or in the trainwreck portions of early season 44, but there’s definitely a great deal of fatigue due to Lorne, due to Don Roy King (and I don’t believe Lorne has submerged his gifts as his direction feels flat to me from his earliest days with the show), due to NBC, due to the 10-15 minute cold opens of death, due to a lot of people who either don’t want to leave or delayed their exits by a year because of COVID, and so forth. 7.7 – Conan O’Brien (26.14) 3907: 6.8 (Josh Hutcherson) Bruce Chandling 7.4 – Ben Affleck (29.15) Also cool to have it confirmed that Martin Short’s appearance in the monologue was a surprise. Sigma (Bruce Willis) STARS: **, HUGS Just a thought. Cut to me now in season 46: still a religious viewer, met Lorne Michaels and various cast members and writers, and performed for some of them. 3921: 4.9 (Andy Samberg), Best Episode: 3916 (Louis C.K. 3902: 6.4 (Miley Cyrus) DJ Davvincii (ANS) & Lil Jon [real] kill fans, — Our obligatory Lonely Island Digital Short of the night. 6.1 – Brandon Tartikoff (S9) That episode is a major reason I realized that Jan Hooks is one of the best and so far the most talented SNL cast members that I’ve ever seen. As someone who tends to be more forgiving of modern snl’s worst tendencies like the constant cameos, even I have to agree that this was overkill. We’ve gotten 2 new Digital Shorts from Samberg (one an all time classic) and Hader’s hosted twice and cameo’d a couple more times, including once in an Update summer special. Though I can’t really blame you for not liking it, it is very, very weird. 7.7 – Kiefer Sutherland (17.05) News Now clips, interviews, movie premiers, exclusives, and more! #34 – 6.7 6.6 – Chevy Chase (3.11) (I’m making the announcement there instead of here because I want everybody to read it, in case there are regular readers of my reviews who never check out the comments section. — Ugh at all of Cecily’s usual corny punchlines and “character voice” punchlines tonight. Recently, I’ve had some people warn me that, based on the quality of SNL’s current 46th season, the final episode I review in my current SNL project will probably be a disappointing and unexciting note for me to end on. Maybe my standards are lower because of COVID, but I think this weird season has had its moments, though I can definitely see why some people don’t like it. 5.8 – Tom Hanks (31.17) – Mommy Beer (S5) It was a little to “funny weird” and not enough “funny haha.” If I were rating it like Stooge, I’d probably give it three stars. It’s not a particularly memorable song or a strong concept for one. The newest celeb photos, fashion photos, party pics, celeb families, celeb babies, and all of your favorite stars!

Maybe it’ll wear off in the future, but the things that really stuck with me positively when I first watched it were the stop-motion horse animation (seems rare for post-Mr. Bill SNL), the well-written tune, the Ryan Gosling-esque performance from Timothée (“Go on, git!”), and the utter ridiculousness that Jimmy Fallon recorded a three-second cameo just for this silly horse sketch. A mod that seeks to mimic the abilities of the Devil himself, Alex Mercer. I also didn’t like her impression as Dr. Fauci. ), “I couldn’t help but mention this hilariously brutal quote from your original review of the Vogelchecks reunion: “ The worse and worse this sketch kept getting as it progressed, the more I wondered to myself what would be the lesser of three evils: sitting through this colossal laughless waste of time, sitting through a reprisal of The Californians, or sitting through the return of Garth & Kat. 7.7 – Christopher Walken (21.10) The show seems a little sloppier these days and I bet COVID has really thrown off the balance of the shows (like 20 minute monologues), but it’s still basically the same show we’ve known for the last little while: super seniors getting first dibs while roughly a baker’s dozen utility players vie for waiter and second cop roles. 7.1 – Sylvester Stallone (S23) 8.0 – Chris Evert (15.05) 4.5 – Bob Saget (20.19) – Bill Murray – 9 months 14 days 6.4 – Judge Reinhold (S13) Not for me. extreme. #38 – 6.5 July 30, 2020. 5.2 – John Goodman (39.09) 5.5 – Paul Simon (11.16) 7.1 –Ben Affleck (S38) Additionally, we got 3 less 1 star pieces than last season (though I think Stooge gave them out a little more liberally last season. Main sketch set was to the far right of home base, and the customer set was on the other side of the studio (in front of the musical guest stage), so the timing was quite sloppy ** yep, another example of the “kill off the newbies” vibe of this season and finale (though Mooney makes it to next year), Hunchback told Nasim she should “come back to my place, we can rock some crucifixes off the wall.” Nasim: “You’re funny.” Hunch: “I STINK!” ** while walking over to Aidy, Hunchback quietly sings the theme to himself (wish they kept that in). a mild step down, My full set of screencaps for this episode is here. 4.7 – Lindsay Lohan (30.20) (*groan*) 1. 5.5 – Alec Baldwin (29.06) — Aaaaaaand the season ends in a whimper. No matter what you do, I want to say how much I love these blog and have loved your reviews. All of those cameos really ruined this episode. Thank you for sharing. – Paul Shaffer – 6 years 8 months 7 days Their team scores, so the rest of them (Noël, Nasim, Kate) “cheer”: a series of stone-faced dance moves. 5.8 – Olsen Twins (S29) 8.8 – Christopher Walken (18.04) STARS: ***. / Rihanna (S40 E21), May 9, 2015 – Reese Witherspoon / Florence + The Machine (S40 E20). Sure. 7.3 – Tom Hanks (13.12) #10 – 6.3 BIH tops ANS’s effort to surpass his impression tally; SEM & MAS cameos, — I wonder if this is the only time in SNL history where a celebrity (Justin Timberlake in this case) made their cameo appearance in the form of a photo. https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/cut-for-time-testicules-cologne/2783125, Update – Magic Johnson (Kenan) 4.8 – Jerry Hall (11.10) 7.7 – Steve Martin (14.20) – Karate School (S9) Yep I agree on Dr. Weknowdis. Didn’t agree with your Stan take, but I agree on Tiny Horse. James Thomas Fallon (born September 19, 1974) is an American comedian, actor, television host, singer, writer, and producer. STARS: ****, CAMP WICAWABE My best guess is Lorne thought people thought was a disappointment and called on so much of the old and beloved cast for the finale as a “remember why you watch this show” for people to remember over the summer. Hated it the first time. ***** Brady didn't spare Mahomes when celebrating the dominant effort of the Buccaneers Super Bowl defense. 4.9 – Colin Farrell (30.07) 5.5 – Elliott Gould (S6) – Dana Carvey – 1 year 8 months 16 days *may not represent review’s perception*, 3901: 7.0 (Tina Fey) 7.7 – Alec Baldwin (18.13) STARS: ***½, CONFIDENT HUNCHBACK Hated it the second time. #19 – 6.0 I also like the new touch he’s added to the character this time: that eye-roll he does after each punchline. STARS: ***, MUSICAL PERFORMANCE I remember from last month that someone commented that Kristen Wiig is the worst and then a lot of r/LNFY users downvoted it. 7.9 – Christopher Walken (28.13) I laughed out loud as soon as Colin first said “Kate”… but the cut-and-paste repeat definitely hurt it in retrospect. 7.7 – Christopher Walken (S26) 6.0 – John Goodman (19.19) It was more cute than funny. The great stuff is of pretty decent quality (like the three sketches Ezra pointed out), but the bad stuff is just drab to watch (the last debate cold open was a bit of a nightmare, I’ll elaborate when we get there). The Louis C.K. The constant cameos in this episode honestly feels like a bit of a chilling omen, considering the next “era” of the show is gonna take that trend and ramp it up to 11 in the next few years. (If they really had to do it, they could utilize the kissing family as one of the sons carrying on the tradition with their own family, as a way to explain the others’ absence, using actual current cast members). 6.8 – Chevy Chase (S8) Surprisingly, most of the projects he has worked on in the past two decades don't involve live acting — he makes music, does voice acting, directs, and has even published books! – The Barry Gibb Talk Show (S36) 7.1 – Justin Timberlake (29.02) https://bronwynjoan.com/blog/2014/7/23/fired-rookies-designated-stars-and-the-troubling-snl-status-quo, “Stooge, is the article you talking about regarding the fired newbies from S39? And of course part of being an SNL fan means you end up waiting and hoping for the page to turn – in this case, hoping with Trump gone from the White House (if not politics) and Alec Baldwin clearly sick of the role, they can take a cleaver to the cold opens and also find a good way to phase into a new era of Update, etc. OH, COME THE FUCK ON, SNL! Granted, all the times she said it in these three episodes, she said it unison with one or more people (group LFNYs in general have become a trend in the last quarter of this season). — (*sigh*) The final episode with the legendary Don Pardo as SNL’s announcer, before he passes away that summer. 6.9 – Buck Henry (S2) – Goodnight Saigon (S34), **** – Norm Macdonald – 1 year 7 months 9 days A much weaker episode than I remembered, probably this season’s worst after Goodman. 6.2 – Elliott Gould (4.09) Suicide.” Do you still stand by those words? (*sigh*) there aren’t enough words from me that can express the disgracefulness of the way this season handled what they themselves said was supposed to be a “rebuilding year” in terms of working in the new group in the cast. Season 40 begins, with host Chris Pratt, two new additions to the cast, a revamped Weekend Update with a new co-anchor joining Colin Jost, and a new replacement for Don Pardo as SNL’s announcer. #37 – 6.3 Bill and Seth’s in the monologue didn’t really matter to me (it was a solid premise and nice to see them back), but bringing back the Vogelchecks made no sense, considering that Andy was never a constant in that sketch and made brief appearances as various characters (roommate, homeless dude, etc), so it doesn’t really make sense in the slightest. What a disparaging end to their SNL careers. a big step down, MY PERSONAL CHOICE OF “BEST OF” MOMENTS FOR THIS ENTIRE SEASON, REPRESENTED WITH SCREENCAPS, HOW THIS OVERALL SEASON STACKS UP AGAINST THE PRECEDING SEASON (2012-13) Before the pandemic, I was doing standup for a thing Kenan was producing, I was writing for a stage talk show in Chicago, and freelance-improvising here and there.
