I missed the nipples comment also. I thought her nipples were going to be apart of the opening monologue since they were so obvious. And I am concentrating too much on that woman's chest, lol.

The Britney skit was so lame and disappointing. That was the best they could come up with?

Those nipples could have cut glass.

That papparazzi sketch would. not. end. However, I liked JA getting out her frustrations with the press. "When are you going to have a baby???"

I'm sure I've seen the Gaystrogen ad before. The Britney sketch was weak but I'm sure they would love to have her on the show in the future (for the ratings, if not her talent), so they could only be so harsh.

I just couldn't get over how terrible Jennifer's portrayal of Britney was. Has she ever heard Britney talk? That whole skit was barely watchable.

As always Weekend Update is wonderful. Jimmy's hair is unusually fugly, though. I'm still laughing at the Christian nudist colony joke. BWAH!

ETA: Do they even bother to script these entirely too long Saddam/Osama bits? Probably not.

Black Eyed Peas sucked, too. That girl CANNOT sing! They've got half an hour to save this disaster of a show.

They were really soft on Britney. I suppose she'll be on the show again before the end of the year. And this Saddam/Osama skit will never end. Zzzzz.

They could have cut 12 inch thick glass.

And this Saddam/Osama skit will never end. Zzzzz.

Started off good with "Working for the Weekend" by Loverboy then went downhill after the Ron Jeremy comparison.

That Television Nippon skit was great! They really are underusing Maya Rudolph in this episode. She had the Japanese fan act perfectly done. That sketch was hilarious because it's so true. Asian fans tend to be a lot more emotional in odd ways for "Western" stars.

After seeing WU and the Saddam/Osama skit, I think back to earlier in the day when I was watching Half Baked. Once again, the thought of Jimmy Fallon not being on SNL had it not been for Jim Breuer's firing enters my head.

wow...Meyers has some damn nice legs. He should wear cut-off jeans every freakin episode.

The "Friends" skit was the only one I laughed at tonight. Pretty dull episode for me.

Tonight's episode wasn't really horribly bad...it was just incredibly blah. The "Friends" sketch was the only really funny sketch. Ok, "Appalachian Emergency Hospital" was kind of funny too, but I won't admit it.

Tina and Jimmy's hair looked really different tonight. Hers looked longer and his looked really flat and weird.

Jim Breuer was fired? Why? I ask only because I don't remember it being discussed in the book.

Overall this episode sucked. I did like the country singers.

You mean the Black Eyed Peas, an R&B/Pop/Soul group who've been around for quite a few years, most notable recently for "Where Is The Love?"(the female singer is a nice addition, great live and studio vocals, eviable abs, but what's with the pirate wear?...)? I thought they were terrific, only tuning in just for their performance (Aniston's first guest spot was much better with the female "Fight Club" spoof)....

This episode sucked rocks. They just did not seem to have any fully formed ideas.

I do not watch Newlyweds and I think it's really sad that people are becoming famous solely for being beautiful but dumb as paint but I will have to tune in next week just to hear Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey say: "Ladies and gentlemen...G-Unit!"

That's funny to me.

There was a skit about country singers. That's what she was referring to. I don't think the female singer's an addition, she's in the video for "where's the love?" After just hearing her, my guess is that the studio people liked the song, but hated her and her out of tune croaking, so they got Justin to sing the chorus, because among other things he sounds girlier than her. She does have a great body though. I really enjoyed their perfomance it was actually entertaining, unlike most performances in this show. I enjoyed everyones dancing.

Almost all of the frontrunning members have been in the same group for the better part of the last decade. The girl was added around 2002-2003 for vocal diversity, which I believe was due in part to their previous mainstream chart rider, 2001's "Request Line", a collaboration with what would be the more croaky voiced singer, Macy Gray....

You're right about the dancing though, definitely hot...

I would be hard-pressed to come up with 10 worse sketches in SNL history. Not saying I couldn't--lord knows there are plenty of contenders--but it would take awhile.

The cast mailed it in. The best bit, Gaystrogen, was a repeat. And I don't think JA is a good impressionist or improviser, so she wasn't much help.

On the plus side, JA's lower, lower abdomen looked really good during the monologue. I didn't even notice the ice-cutters.

Wow. That sucked so bad and it didn't have to. Don't they know by now that the shows that focus on the LADIES and Will Forte are always the best?

I think Tina Fey is an excellent writer and delivers her lines wonderfully but is she the reason Jimmy & Horatio get so much damn screen time? Are they like the brothers she never had? Or is Lorna Michael the one to blame? Cause that Osama/Saddam sketch is typical of their ability to stink up a show. They didn't even do funny versions of Ross and Joey!

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey




Why do I have a feeling it's just going to be Jessica saying dumb things the entire time? Whatever happened to when SNL picked hosts based on their comedic ability and not their present popularity?
