He did Brian for a second, and also did Roger from "American Dad" briefly as well.
Didn't know that Ryan Lochte was supposed to be stupid, then I saw in some other article today people making fun of him.. (i.e. not a SNL related article)
The stutter sketch was somewhat funny.. and so was one of the ones late in the show.. From the list, I'm not sure which one. maybe "I'm like..". Basically, it totally went against the *general* "sketches near the end are on the worse end of the scale".
Which means his 15 minutes was up 20 minutes ago. I'll bet he disappears fast.
I really thought this was one of the best episodes in a long time, and I'm amazed we've made it 40 posts and no one has mentioned the puppet skit. It seems I'm in the minority since no one's mentioned it, but that was a bona fide legendary skit.
The little dig during the other wise stupid, "I'm all like..." skit was funny too: "And I'm all like 'Giggity Goo'." "Yeah, don't do Family Guy, we're 30."
Just a few of my favorite highlights. An absolutely great episode. Seth MacFarlane should be added to the Justin Timberlake tier of making a few spot appearances a year.
He's also filthy rich. The Fox shows bring him multi-$Millions each year. He got a huge multi-year deal.
Seth McFarlane also made a not-totally-vanity CD singing standards.
He's a not bad singer. He's not a great singer.
Was that song with the voices written for the show or maybe something he's done before?
There is NO WAY that Stewie is Rex Harrison.
I have never seen Ryan Lochte talk, but my wife said he comes across stupid.
I liked the stutter skit, especially when the drill sergeant said repeat after me and then stuttered, so all the soldiers yelled what he said complete WITH the stutter.
I liked the "I'm all like" skit, but it's because I like the girl in that skit. She's pretty cute!
And I agree about Seth and Justin showing up from time to time. They are always funny!
I saw Seth on a Comedy Central roast and enjoyed him, even though I don;t watch any of his animated shows. The other comedians were making fun of him saying he can't do anything until The Simpsons does it first! One of them said "Seth, The Simpsons called and they want their everything back!"
Thanks! I don't watch those shows, but have heard of them.
I didn't think it was all that great - I was expecting a lot more. The Ryan Locket bit was the best. And yes he is that dumb. He always say "me and him" "me and Michael", etc when starting sentences. It drives me crazy but they didn't use it once in the bit which was a shame.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE me some Mumford and Sons so I'm super excited for this week.
Somehow I doubt that.
The Lochte bit was the funniest.
Best line... "it feels weird being dry."
I lost it!!!!
..you and my friend Maureen-she is Mumford & Sons' #1 fan!
OMG-yes, poor Ryan, he is not that bright...I saw an interview where he talked about guest starring on "90210" and they asked him what was the hardest part of it all-and he said something like "moving around and saying lines and not tripping and falling" - funny, in a sad, tragic way....
And yes, the puppet sketch was hee-larious, especially when "Anthony's" puppet, "Tony," was smoking...OMG, so funny.
I thought it was a great episode. The only drawback was Frank Ocean and supposedly John Meyer was their too. Also did they purposely join the Wooden Spoon warehouse in the middle of the sketch or did my local station wanted to cram a bunch of commercials in to the commercial break? I went to the web site and of course it redirected me to snl's web site.
The bit was only about 45 seconds long. Just spelling out the URL (snake, ....)
...double valley, double valley, double valley....
the river what took my son....
Pretty much the right length of an SNL bit.
It worked very well.
Wow. I had heard that it was a great SNL. Maybe that's why I was so disappointed. I sat there through the first hour asking myself why am I watching this S***. I kept hanging on hoping. I thought the Eastwood Chair commercial was pretty good. I also thought that the skits at the end were better than the ones at the beginning which is unusual for a late night TV show. Usually its fire with your best stuff first and it's downhill from there.
Of course there have been things that I thought were hysterical that others didn't think were the least bit funny so I guess it is just a taste thing.
Just really disappointed.
And for those that don't know, on Sept 11, 2001 Seth was supposed to be on Flight 11 from Boston to L.A. - the one that hit the north tower.
He got drunk the night before, and showed up at the airport too late to catch the flight.
I did NOT know that! Wow.
I think in addition to him being drunk, the driver that was supposed to pick him up was late. Supposedly Seth is notoriously late for everything, so he didn't think much of it and it wasn't a big deal to him at the time, until they actually found out what happened.
I didn't know about the 9/11 info, and looked it up. Apparently, he also was told the flight left at 8:15, instead of 7:45. He got to the airport 10 minutes after the gates closed so it was too late to board.
