Fox News Cold Open
No. God no. I’m not even giving you folks the embed. I don’t want anyone to accidentally click play.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Monologue
When I wake up on Sundays, somebody over at NBC has always sent me an email containing the embeds I put into these recaps. They usually send the highlights, which apparently includes all but about two skits because they have a very loose definition of “highlights.” I think this is the first time they didn’t send me the embed for the monologue.
There’s a reason.
The Cape Promo
The idea is basically what a high-school talent show would come up with, but the execution is actually pretty funny.
Again, no. I like you all way too much.
Digital Short: Andy and Pee Wee’s Night Out
Yes, yes, awesome, and yes. And more yes. The icing? Anderson Cooper.
Celebrity Bah Mitzvah
I didn’t get the embed for this, either, which is strange because, besides the Digital Short, this was the best skit of the night. When “SNL” goes up on Hulu, seek this one out.
A send up on Cee-Lo’s “Forget You,” where everyone uses “forget” instead of “fuck,” etc. Cee Lo is funny in it, because Cee-Lo is forgetting Cee-Lo. He should’ve hosted.
“What’s up, my Nintendo?”
Did everyone know that Cee-Lo was this short? He’s like the black Prisco.
Weekend Update — Constitutional Corner
Who knew Seth Meyers was even capable of being this funny? This is fantastic in every sense, except the NRA sense. If you were to watch only this and the Digital Short, you’d wonder why anyone complained about “SNL.”
Fresh Prince Lost Episodes
Just another excuse for Jay Pharoah to do a spot-on impersonation of Will Smith. Good impersonation, bad skit.
No fucking clue, but Paltrow speaks pretty good Spanish.
