It was a huge meh IMO. Seth McFarlaines (spelling is terrible) monologue was chuckle worthy but the entire episode was entirely forgettable. Frank Ocean wasnt bad if you are into that kind of thing, I hope that it leads to Childish Gambino as a musical guest sometime soon.
I love Nasim, but Vanessa Bayer is a pretty funny chick.
I didn't see enough of the new people to really judge them. Looks like they hired an ugly dude though. About fucking time. TV needs more ugly motherfuckers, especially in comedy.
I loved Abby the last couple seasons. The fat chick is fallout from the plumper from Bridesmaids and Mike and Molly. Just because you look funny doesnt mean you are funny. Also, the ugly dude was ugly. And not very funny.
Im going to miss the Digital Shorts most of all, those were some of the best segments. If Seth Meyers leaves I might swear off the show entirely.
It was great. The only problem was, it wasn't funny. Not by any stretch of the imagination. I've been able to find some merit in every season since the first, but so far these episodes have been unlikable garbage.
SNL has always favored Democrats more than Republicans since the beginning, that's just the nature of who writes for the show and that it's based in NYC. But it wasn't until GWB's administration that SNL really started making it obvious who they were siding with. I started watching in 1991 and the skits they had with Dana Carvey's GHW Bush and then Phil Hartman's Clinton were done in such a way that everyone on both sides could watch and laugh and not be offended. Fast forward to now and it's just sad how much they shill for Team Obama not just in the skits but on Weekend Update with smirky douchebag Seth Myers.
I love Louie and consider him to be in my top 3 comedians I'd like to see live. That being said, I wonder how much of a coincidence it is that they have such a liberal Obama supporter hosting the weekend before the election.
