    Didn't see the name, mine was cut too...

    Did Samuel L Jackson really say the "F" word on What's Up with That?
    I did clearly hear him say Bullsh1t, but I rewound the line right before that and it sure sounded like something he's really not supposed to say on TV.

    Yes, yes he did. Got a bit too into character, he did. :)

    Is it wrong that I like the Nirvana/McCartney song better than any straight up Nirvana song?

    This was a great SNL, lots of good stuff, hunh looking back at the line up I think this is the first time I can say there wasn't a stinker skit in any of them.

    I thought they did all the songs in reverse order, first song was a complete bore, second song was ok and the last song was the best one. I know it's one of his classics, but I still think they should have led with it.

    I'm really liking The Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation with at a Party, the non-sequiturs are hilarious.

    I liked the Christmas music but thought every skit was terrible

    Still can't stand "What Up With That." I hate sketches where every time they do it, it is exactly the same. Sam Jackson at least made tonight's more interesting, unintentionally. :)

    The Tony Bennett Christmas really lacked a punchline. It was just Alec Baldwin and Martin Short doing Tony Bennett impressions.

    I liked Royal Protocol... it was one of the few times when the performers trying not to laugh actually worked and made it funnier.

    Jason in the red jumpsuit makes me laugh every time.

    I got the impression that skit was mostly improv.

    How could you forget the Tom Hanks cameo? :)

    OTOH, I could understand totally missing the Kristin Wig cameo. :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't say it was better but wow it was really great and unusual. I listened to it a few times and even called the wife in to hear it. BTW Grohl has some really great side projects. If you haven't already you should check out Probot. For those that don't know, this is all part of Grohl's upcoming Sound City documentary. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/nirvana-paul-mccartney-song-stems-from-dave-grohls-sound-city-documentary-20121213

    The "host" stopped him just short of the full on word and said that would cost them too much money.

    No - he said the entire word.

    I thought this was a great show.
    The writing was way better than usual - makes me wonder if the lack of comedic talent of someone like Martin Short doesn't give them much to work with...

    Batter than average show. Surprised at the song choices, which is a good thing with McCartney. He tends to rely on certain crowd-pleasers and it was nice not to hear Hey Jude yet again.

    But his xmas song really isn't good.

    I watched it again. You're right. He fired of the BS word off camera then the host said "that's going to cost us some money." I was paying more attention to the F-Word.

    I thought the children's chorus was a really lovely and appropriate way to start the show. I enjoyed that quite a lot.

    Martin Short lacks comedic talent? Wha..?!?! :confused:

    I thought the Royal OB/GYN sketch was brilliant, and finishing it off with Fred Armisen reprising his role as Queen Elizabeth coming to get her "Dame Judy Dench" washed was just classic.

    I always love "What Up With That?" just because of Sudeikis as Dancing Track Suit Guy. It was even better this time that he got a speaking part in that sketch and that he apparently smokes between his dancing stints.

    None of the others really did much for me, and I was pretty disappointed with the McCartney music.
