SNL’s Line Up For November
SNL on Twitter.
— Saturday Night Live – SNL (@nbcsnl) October 30, 2017
We already knew Larry David & Miley Cyrus would be the host/musical guest for this Saturday’s show, but now Saturday Night Live has announced the hosts and musical guests for the next two shows as well. Tiffany Haddish (The Carmichael Show, Girls Trip) & Chance The Rapper will be making their hosting debuts, and they’re accompanied by some power house musical guests. Taylor Swift & Eminem are as big time as it gets for musical guests, and might even appear in a sketch or two. With Haddish and Chance The Rapper making their hosting debuts, 4 out of the first 6 hosts for season 43 will have been first timers.
The name is Steely_Phil and from now on i’m going to be posting whatever I want whenever I want, but theres a bonus, each post comes with a song. If you don’t like what i have to say, shove it. If you don’t like the song, cram it.
In my first post id like to comment on presidential candidate Donald Trumps hair. Its silken, blonde, and looks like a cotton candy cloud slowly cascading over a freshly polished gymnasium floor. But as much as I hate the guy, you have to give him credit for having the courage to say what nobody else will. In a world where the term “politically correct” is so embedded into our collective memory that almost every breath or word offends at least one sect of our population, Donald continues to be the outlier, he continues to be the only politically incorrect man in politics and you gotta love it.
So in honor of my new found respect for Donald Trump, here is the other most politically incorrect man walking on this good green earth; Eminem.
When Bill Paxton created the internet this is EXACTLY what he though it would be used for.
His new music video, directed by Spike Lee, is an apology to his mom. I think you might need more than just a fancy shmancy music video to properly apologize, but it’s a start.
I don’t understand how this song always slips through my radar. Superman is easily on my top 10 favorite songs list, and probably my top Eminem song. Not to mention the video is awesome (NSFW, but who cares!).
Came across this song on my Pandora listening today. Haven’t heard it since I was in grade school. Figured I’d share it with you!
Kerry Washington and her fine self is your host. The hysterical Eminem is the musical guest. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights..
Cold Open – White House
Everyone knew this was coming. The casting of six white cast members (5 male) during SNL’s off season irked critics who’ve longed for more female black cast members. Washington is our first black host of the year, so it makes sense to talk about the elephant in the room. The text on screen was hysterical, and Washington played a good Michelle Obama and Oprah.
What Does My Girl Say?
Blogged about this earlier in the week. The SNL digital shorts have been solid this season, and as expected, SNL takes the cake when it comes to parodies of ridiculous pop culture hits. Who that, who that, who that bitch. Kinda catchy.
I feel like there hasn’t been a bad weekend update in years. Seth and Cecily are a killer team, so it will be bittersweet when he leaves for his own late night talk show. Jay Pharaoh and Kenan’s Shaq and Barkley impressions are so good it’s creepy. Seriously, though: WHAT’S EATING THE RATS IN NYC!?
Career Week Speaker
This may be the year Nasim Pedrad breaks free. She got to star in two sketches last week, and her hand movements/gyrations coordinated with lasers were pretty awesome in this sketch. Can’t deny the success of someone who owns a Honda Prelude. Also, Kerry Washington can be my sidekick any day.
Put a bunch of 25-35 year old guys in a room with a decent amount of weed and you have the ice cream sketch. This was bizarre, but I liked it. Compared to some of the sketches me and my friends have come up with, this is quasi normal. The digital shorts/ pre-taped segments have all been really good this season.
Kerry Washington was a great host, and Eminem was making me LMAO. Not really, but he lip synced his way through a few songs, which is fine with me. Another solid episode, with a few OK sketches, but for the most part a good show. SNL went out of it’s way to address the lack of a black female character, a trend I hope doesn’t continue. They’re in the business of making people laugh, not answering every gripe from boneheads with a computer. We’re back November 16th with musical guest and host, Lady Gaga.
