Last Night on "SNL": Helen Mirren's Magical Bosom

Interesting episode with Helen Mirren. I’ve included more skits than usual in today’s highlights, not because it was a better episode, but because so many mediocre or bad sketches had one or two inspired moments (usually thanks to Mirren). There was also a lot of focus on the fact that Mirren is one seriously hot 65-year-old, as well there should be.

Presidential Address Cold Open

The gist: “In a true example of compromise, I am pleased to say that no one got what he wanted, and everyone walked away unhappy.” Etc. etc. Some OK lines, though.

Helen Mirren Monologue

It’s not embeddable, so you’ll have to wait for the full episode this afternoon on Hulu. But it’s a fun short musical number basically about how hot Helen Mirren is. I think we can all agree on the sentiment.

Celebrity Taxes

It’s not even worth it to see (briefly) Helen Mirren playing Helena Bonham Carter. It’s like a skit written by Bruce Vilanch.

SNL Digital Short: Helen Mirren’s Magical Bosom

I absolutely love that the focus so far is on how hot Helen Mirren is. And this … it’s funny cause it’s true. (OK. It’s not actually that funny, but it is true.)

Fox and Friends

Fox News Anchors are both racist and dumber than loose testicles. Bravo, “SNL.” Not that funny. In fact, not funny at all. Buy hey! With this and the Cold Open, “SNL” actually takes a couple of stabs at pseudo-relevant political humor. B- for effort!

Foo Fighters

What’s that dripping onto your lap? That’s your face, motherfuckers. It’s melting off.

Weekend Update: James Carville

I do not usually care for the Carville segments, but this one kills

Weekend Update: Shelley Elaine

*Highlight of the Night*

I wasn’t expecting much here, but by the end of this segment, I had nearly pissed in my bathrobe. And then I watched it a second time and actually did piss my bathrobe.

Weekend Update Highlights

Not Seth Meyers’ best week.

Two Sides with Hugh Jackman

Again, like the Monologue, this skit wasn’t embeddable, despite being one of the better skits of the night. Helen Mirren shows both sides of Julie Andrews: The sweet singing side, and the angry murdering side. Find it, just to see Helen Mirren spear her assistant.

Crunk-Ass Easter Festival

The return of Ass Dan, Helen Mirren as DJ Stank Skunk, and of course, Methed-Out Coyotes.

The Roosevelts

Bad skit, mocking the historical inaccuracies in “The Kennedys.” But then again, Helen Mirren as Eleanor Roosevelt makes out with Marilyn Monroe and later orders the bombing of Pearl Harbor while topless

Foo Fighters: Walk

Both songs tonight were from the new album. I liked this one better.
