Well…that was an episode.
Kia, Scott, and Vince talk about highly watched, really mediocre episode of SNL. Weirdly, one of our big criticisms of this episode was “Why wasn’t there more Donald Trump?”
Best Skit of the Night!
This week’s honors go to the Hotline Bling Parody!
Tracy Morgan’s back! We’re are down one Scott this week, but that doesn’t stop us from asking the tough questions like Why does Young Osama Bin Laden have a skateboard? Are Bobby Moynihan’s Steven Seagal and Ted Cruz impressions the same impression? And of course, where Jackie Chan at right now?
Add in Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellows appearances, and we’ve got the makings of a good SNL episode!
Best Skit of the Night: Yo! Where Jackie Chan at Right Now?
Bonus Video – Astronaut Jones – The Greatest 4-Seconds
As Kia and I both observed, there’s only 4 seconds of Astronaut Jones available on YouTube. But if it’s gonna be only 4 seconds, this sure is a great place to start.
Prerecorded from New York, Los Angeles, Austin, and San Antonio, it’s All My Friends Are Right Here!
In honor of SNL’s 41st season premiere, the guys are looking back on five decades of the show to draft their all-time favorite casts.
Topics include: Johnny Dangerously, the many hairstyles of Tim Meadows, and Billy Crystal sketches that were actually Chris Kattan sketches.

Kia and Vince have run of the asylum as Scott takes a break to celebrate his birthday (what a silly goose). Meanwhile, Saturday Night Live celebrates Mother’s Day with Reese Witherspoon, hosting for the first time since 2001 (Amy Poehler’s first episode to be exact).
Plus: The return of SNL Trivia! The answers may surprise you!
The Best Skit of the Night honors went to the Southern Ladies skit for its quirkiness, oddly specific minutiae, and Kate McKinnon’s silly hair.
And with that, we’re just one episode away from the Season Finale and our “Best of Season 40 (Since We Started) Spectacular!”

Join us to hear our thoughts on Weekend Update’s recent improvements, ScarJo and Pete Yorn’s band, and if anyone can have more fun with wigs than Taran Killam.

The best skit of the night was the Black Widow trailer.
The 2nd best skit of the night was Jay Pharaoh’s reaction to ScarJo spoiling the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. Just…watch Pharaoh’s face.

Taraji P. Henson hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live, and boy, was Cookie a real Monster.
While an uneven episode, there was a little something for everyone – the return of Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton, QVC cat jokes, Empire/Sesame Street mashups, and super racist A League of Their Own parodies.
All that and more in this week’s Tuesday Morning Pod!
Overall, there were a lot of skits that were good premise, but not much payoff. Even so, there were some fantastic belly laughs to be had.
This week’s Best Skit of the Night was a controversial decision. It was Scott and Kia’s favorite, but definitely not Vince’s favorite (because Vince is a good feminist). It was Teacher Trial.
It’s showtime! Michael Keaton hosts SNL for a very, very weird night. Guys, there were Dire Straits jokes. And Johnny Dangerously jokes! And cats dressed as Hillary Clinton!
Kia couldn’t make it onto this week’s record, but our good friend Chris Dobson from the Your Stupid Minds podcast guests on our latest episode.
Please listen and subscribe and then remember to call your grandmother!
The best skit of the night was Easter Candy, a very weird (no surprise) little skit.
Easter Candy is a recurring skit of an Ed Norton skit from last season. It’s also pretty funny!
