    No issue with how they handled it, but I was hoping that a version of “Les Jeunes de Paris” would have been an SNL-appropriate way of celebrating/honoring the spirit of the city. Am I alone in thinking it could have been a nice tribute?

    • Guillaume Schmitt

      That would have been great but my guess is that they didn’t had the time to write it and rehearse it.

  • Guillaume Schmitt

    Is someone know what was suppose to be the cold open of this episode ?

  • Charles Bikle

    Overall, thought this was a pretty funny show – not the funniest, but pretty solid.

    With the cold open, I think Cecily’s speech was the perfect way to handle the recent tragedy; if there’s a better way, I can’t think of it.

  • Is it just me or this episode missing from the iTunes feed?

  • Jason Lee

    Will there be a podcast version of this recap available?

  • Podcast note: There was a problem with the feed as recorded by The sync between me and Mike is off. We are hoping it gets resolved, so we can put it out!

    • Charles Bikle

      Because of this, there were points where Mike interrupted you mid-sentence, almost as if he were bored with what you were saying and wanted to move on, which I know was not the case at all, but I still found unintentionally funny.

      • Eart

        That explains it. I found it very odd (and funny) and it seemed pretty rude on Mike’s part.

  • Abby Sue Collins

    For some reason the snl podcasts aren’t showing up on the rhap app. Can someone tell me where to find it? Thanks

  • Suzi!

    Where’s the podcast?

    If the Nov 21 SNL Weekend Update isn’t the worst chemistry of a cast ever, I would like to hear what is worse. The cast clearly hate each other. The writers aren’t giving them much either. It is just embarassing how bad it is. The funniest stuff is the cliches.

  • homertownie

    Why do they duplicate the same joke in Weekend Update that they just did in a skit or the cold open? They even repeated the same joke in Weekend Update and then with a guest during Weekend Update. (Trump database of Muslims).

    I guess they are so very heavily political jokes now that they can’t think of a new approach?
