What was that iPad instrument the Muse guitarist had in the first song?

It was kind of weird that the last sketch was a rerun of the undecided voter sketch. The only good thing about this episode was the cold opening, bond girls and weekend update. It was so great seeing Big Bird actually there.

Wow, that was bad. The cold open was funny, but after that I was so bored I just went to bed during the "watch my girlfriend's face" sketch. I don't think I even smiled one time, not even during WU.

It was interesting how many times Daniel Craig stumbled over his lines.

A pretty good episode overall. I loved Long Island Medium.

Every time they do one of those reality show parodies, I think how ridiculous it would be if it was an actual show. Then, after being blissfully ignorant for another few hours, I read on here that they're making fun of an actual show and it makes me sad.


So, I guess it's time to Google "Long Island Medium" and destroy a little more of my faith in humanity... http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/long-island-medium

Long Island Medium was funny-"Whose grandfather choked on a meatball sandwich?" (all hands go up)

Big Bird was worth the price of admission...

You know who likes debates?
De fishes....

I used to just be able to blend in, like any other normal 8-foot giant yellow talking bird...

Lesser known Bond girls was cute, Diane Keaton and Ellen were highlights for me...Ellen wearing her bikini over her clothes-"I love the beach"

Besides that-boy, I had high hopes for Daniel Craig but man oh man did this stink on ice!

(p.s. My name is Regina, not REGINE-"My girlfriend's face" sketch was so bad, I couldn't believe it!!! ARGH!)

For the first time in a long time, I didn't even stay up long enough to watch the opening.

Seemed to be a lot of pre-recorded stuff in place of live sketches. Maybe it was just of absence of a digital short.

I think Kate McKinnon is thus far proving to be a lot funnier than Wiig. Prettier, too. Her Ellen impression had me in stitches.

The first few times I saw her, she kind of creeped me out. But her Anne Romney in the last episode and her Jodie Foster, Ellen Degeneres, and the Jesus artist (on the news) are changing my mind.

Kate is also a hot lesbian!!

In the "Sorry Lot" sketch, one of the guys mentioned the pee-doe-file lineup pays 1 cent an hour. Shouldn't that be 1 pence or 1 "pee"?

Awful Awful episode. The only part I laughed at was when Seth Meyers did his bit and the Spanish Painter lady who destroyed Jesus came on. She was hilarious! The Long Island Medium was okay too.

The rest of the episode muy malo.

I was surprised to see Big Bird on there. I had read that after Romney's comment at the debate, dozens of shows had requested an appearance by Big Bird and PBS had turned them all down.

Looking back at it, I think about the only things I laughed at in this episode were these McKinnon characters. I'd forgotten about Jodie Foster... LOL.

I believe it's "Sesame Street" producers Sesame Workshop, not PBS, who get to make Big Bird-related decisions.

Yes, I actually almost typed Children's Television Workshop instead of PBS, but I figured that for purposes of this discussion, they were synonymous.

SNL and the Muppets have always had a strong relationship.

It's a Misa Kitara that's fused with his signature graphite status bass. You can buy both seperately, but that instrument is custom.

I saw an interview today about it. (Also, I still haven't seen the SNL episode, so I don't know what was in it.)

They were very concerned that the bit would be partisan one way or another, but SNL allowed them to see the script and it met their standards.

Also, the guy who voices Big Bird is the same guy who's done it since the 60's, and yes, it was him.

True, but I BELIEVE (someone correct me) the Muppets & Sesame Street have been basically disconnected for quite a while now.

After the Muppets were sold (to a German company?), I think CTW got the rights to the various Muppets that were used on Sesame Street, but the Henson Company got the restů and then the Muppets were sold several times, now owned by Disney.

I hope I'm remembering that vaguely right. Basically, there used to be some direct connections, now I think they're largely if not completely separated. I don't even know if they could make NEW Kermit stuff if they wanted to.

Indeed. This is why I wasn't surprised in the least by Big Bird's appearance.

Other topic: Kate McKinnon is awesome! Her characters were a highlight in an otherwise thoroughly "meh" show.

Daniel Craig sucks at live sketch comedy. Terrible host.

Except that the story I referenced specifically mentioned SNL as one of the shows that had requested an appearance by Big Bird and had been turned down. So I guess someone changed their mind after that story was written.

I thought the most exciting part of the show was that iPad key/guitar thing the bassist for Muse had.
