SNL 40th Anniversary Special

Anyone watching this? Seems like they most of old cast members, including the living ones from season 1 and Eddie Murphy are in it. The opening musical wasn't that great, but Steve Martin was good as usual.

It will be interesting to see all the old cast members reprise their SNL roles.

i'll watch some of it, but i'm not sitting through 4+ hours (with pre-special, special) - predicting liberal use of the ffwd button on my remote once i start.

Well the updated "Bass-o-matic" skit shows that live TV is still subject to things not going as planned...

Celebrity Jeopardy is one of my favorite old recurring skits. Nice to see it again. Just as good as I remember.

We had it set to record and it isn't working. It missed the red carpet show and has a blank playbar when we look at the show that it thinks is currently recording. Roamio is not a our friend tonight

Regarding the Red Carpet, Chevy Chase didn't look so good...

I don't think it's age. I think he's just either under the weather, or he's strained his vocal chords. He still has a decent voice last I checked.

The Californians makes me laugh a bit, but I always feel like I'm missing something. I wonder what the inspiration for the sketch was.

It reminds me of when UK sketch shows make fun of Australian soaps. I can only imagine that was the inspiration. Since US people wouldn't get Aussie references, they just switched it to ridiculous Californian accents and references, which of course makes it make no sense whatsoever.

This audience is dead. Yeah, I get that they're probably mostly if not all VIPs, and many of them are half dead regardless, but still.

Who were the "extras" in the skit. I didn't recognize most of them and they didn't name all of them at the end.

Bill Murray singing "Jaws", not as funny as the audience enoyed it.

I'm sure the cast feels that this is a special night.
I just don't feel it.
I keep waiting for something great to happen.

I think at this point, I'd rather watch a "best of" episode. The only solidly funny part so far in this entire show was Jeopardy.

Ugh. You have Paul Simon in the house - the real Paul Simon - and you choose to have Miley Cyrus do this song?!? WTF?
