11:35pm – Dan Aykroyd, yay!  Cold open, boo!  I don’t know if Dan’s just a bit rusty, or if he didn’t get enough prep time, but any laughs he elicited from the audience were almost out of pity or happy memories or a mixture of both.  It didn’t help that the bit wasn’t all that funny.  It tried to make fun of Obama’s recent plans and actions and turn them into some future positive spin for Republicans when they fail.  The skit failed.  Horribly.  Kristen Wiig Counter: 1

11:40pm – Alec Baldwin thanked Christian Bale for taking some of his heat (for calling his daughter a “rude, thoughtless, little pig”) and made further fun of himself.  Kudos.  He introduced Jack McBrayer from 30 Rock and did one of the sometimes funny, sometimes tired Q&A sessions.  Getting sleepy.  Wiig Counter: 2

11:45pm – Baldwin as one of the Jonas Brothers named Gary.  If you thought Britney Spears was a bad actress, triple that.  And yeah, that one Brother is 100% gay (which one, you ask… take your pick).

11:53pm – The Cougar Den – Introduced the concept of a CouGay, which is ho-hum ha-ha, and brought back original skit cougar, Cameron Diaz.  Thank god the boyfriends weren’t the Jonas BrothersWC: 3

11:59pm – Digital Short – Damn.  Jonas Brothers again.  At least Andy Samberg found a way to limit their acting and in turn make them mildly entertaining.  In the skit, Samberg confronts them with an old VHS cassette featuring them performing in the 80’s, and he wonders how it’s possible.  It turns out a wizard granted them eternal life.  That’s the joke, folks.

12:01am – Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Photo Shop – Bring your photos in to have back added to the photo.  Abby Elliott’s shown, but has no lines.  Don’t think Wiig is in this one.  I wouldn’t be either.  Mix-a-Lot was used much better in this:

12:07am – Jonas Brothers perform and I assume this will be the only time I ever see them.  Well this and later in the show.

12:13am – Weekend Update – Angelina Jolie returns (via Abby Elliott)!  Michaela Watkins as Angie Tempura blogger of BitchPleeze.com gets chuckles.  Joaquin Phoenix appears (via Jason Sudekis) and bombs worse than he actually did on David LettermanSeth Meyers’ closing joke garners the biggest laugh – “If you’re at home watching this Valentine’s Day episode, better luck next year!”  At least he didn’t say anything about blogging.

12:26am – Vincent Price’s Valentine’s Day SpecialBaldwin plays Richard Burton.  Meh.  Wiig Counter ups to 4 with her awesome portrayal of Carol ChanningIt rivals her Bjork from last week.

12:35am – Business Meeting – Different excuses to cancel an appointment.  Good lord, please end.  Thank god, it did.  I’m getting ready to watch last’s week’s 30 Rock on Hulu.

12:41am – Definitely watching 30 RockJonas Brothers are introduced by Baldwin’s rude, thoughtless, little pig?

12:45:am – Wii Game – First, a Mix-a-Lot skit, then Liberace gay jokes, and now a Wii masturbation bit?  Did they go to the file cabinet for these ideas?

12:49am – Chewable Pampers Commercial – I saw this already somehow.  Maybe it was online, but still…  Well, I guess, yeah, it’s kinda funny.  Mostly the different flavorsWC: 5

12:52am – Virgania Horsen’s Hot Air Balloon Rides – Not as good as her Pony ExpressWC: 6

12:53am – First Coughs – Probably the best skit, where Baldwin’s DVD teaches you how to foreshadow your death in a movie with a slight cough.  Saying it’s “probably the best” isn’t saying much.  I’m trying to remember if there was a cough earlier in the show that foreshadowed this episode’s death.

12:58am – Disappointment sets in.  Onto 30 Rock!

SNL Update Has The Best Stuff – A Video Highlight

Posted in Humor, NBC, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2009 by tvismyiv

Bradley Cooper was the host of last night’s Saturday Night LiveWho? What? Why? you might be thinking, but my suggestion is to pretend it didn’t happen.  Here’s quite possibly the best bit of the night:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Hulu – Collections: SNL with Bradley …“, posted with vodpod

 

 

Otherwise, the other highlights would be Seth Meyers’ solo run at Really?!? regarding Kellogg’s dropping their sponsorship deal with Michael Phelps after the pot smoking incident, and Kenan Thompson playing Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison, who broke a Superbowl record returning an interception the entire length of the field for a touchdown.

1130 – We’re entering an era without Elephants, and I fear our comedy may suffer (unless Obama has a tubby intern that may catch his eye).  Jason Sudekis as Joe Biden tries to quell our (and Lorne’s) fears by suggesting he’ll screw something up.  Dan Quayle, he ain’t.

 

1133 – Did Don Pardo just mispronounce new castmate Michaela Watkins as Miunintelligible Watson?

 

1134 – Paul Rudd doesn’t seem to have high hopes for show post-election… Kristen Wiig seems to agree… I’m beginning to worry…

 

1135 – Did they just simulate an erection in the Sproingo spoof commercial?

 

1138 – Kissing Family Skit.  At first I wonder why Rudd is member of the family, with Andy Samberg as the visiting guest.  (I also wonder is this a recurring skit?  God, I hope not).  Ah the answer presents itself… Samberg and Fred Armison make out open-mouthed.

 

1144 – Disgusting!  I can’t stand these Charmin Ultra Strong commercials.  This one has them playing football with dingleberries.  Gross!

 

1148 – As a bone thrown to Kenan Thompson, this scared straight skit is meh at best.

 

1151 – Digital Short – Like the song Samberg made and played, but here’s a trend I’m sensing in this episode… what’s with all the gay humor?  No good fart skits coming to mind?  Majorly missing TV Funhouse right now.
