    Wow, Steve Martin and Prince.

    This is the first time in a long time I've been able to watch the show without it being a repeat. This looks like it may be a good show.

    Steve Martin opening was great (He finds out Alec Baldwin is about to tie his hosting record, so he kills him and tosses his body out a window). The whole show has been good so far and Prince tore it up. I was worried he was going to lead off with that "Te Amo Corazon" or whatever song. I guess that will be the 2nd song, but I'm iTunesing the song he just played.

    Not sure why people are saying it was good. I thought the sketches were horrible. A lot of the jokes were overplayed like 5-6 times. Yeah yeah, I get it... the camera zooms in to be dramatic. Yeah yeah, I get it... he really wants to be part of the surfer crowd.
    The funniest skit was the short film entitled The Tangent, where the guy talks and talks.

    Other than the opening bit and Prince, I thought the show was pretty lame. Even The Prince Show wasn't as good this week. I thought for sure the real Prince would have been involved.

    Pregnancy has done Mya Rudolph well...got milk? :eek:

    Where can I find a list of skits. The wife and I were crying at a later one, but we were a bit-how do I put this?-****ed up, so we don't remember which skit it was. :)

    EDIT: For some reason, the Aaron Neville skit got to us.

    Thinking back, I thought the "Bear holding a heart" commercial was hilarious. It reminded me of those Vermont Teddy Bear commercials that 610 spouts. I can't imagine a grown woman really wanting a teddy bear for a gift. Maybe if the bear is holding a diamond.

    Seriously. If you're gonna do the Prince Show, and Prince happens to be your musical talent, work him into the f***ing skit. That's what SNL does best. Talk about a blown opportunity.

    The Tangent digital short was great. Reminded me of a live-action Robert Smigel cartoon. Other than that, good host, terrible skits.

    I thought it might be good with Steve Martin, but man. I was wrong that was lame.

    SNL really needs to fire just about everyone on it and bring in a new group. Those people suck. Definetly one of the "rebuilding stages" for SNL.

    I'm guessing SNL asked him and he declined. No way they didn't think of that.

    Weekend update was hilarious! I also liked the $500 raise. I am going to try and watch SNL regularly.

    That's not really "overplaying" the joke... that IS the joke.

    People have been saying they've been "rebuilding" since Carvey, Myers, and Hartmann left.

    And yet, they've produced a pretty major star every 5 years or so (Ferrell, Fallon), they've had the best weekend update run in their history, and they're still spot-on with their political satire (Crossfire, Bush).

    These digital shorts they're doing are pretty freakin awesome (culminated by the chronicles of narnia rap). Hell, they could probably put together a successful show just by doing all those... forget this "live" stuff, give me a skit that makes people laugh, and I'll gladly forgoe the effort of somebody trying to perform it live.

    Yeah, I forgot about that one. I did crack up on that. Especially when he startd singing A-E-I-O-U.

    And yes, Maya Rudolph sure is stacked now.

    Its still worth a TIVO... and if you look at the majority of the crap that's on network television, SNL doesn't look that bad in comparison.

    yeah, but they always had stand out comedians who were funny as hell. There was always atleast one character I always looked forward to watching in a skit. That just doesn't exist for me anymore. The only guy that even cracks me up now, rarely, is Chris Parnell.

    That last group of funny characters I can remmeber was during the Cheri Oteri, Will Ferrel, Chris Katan etc. time.
