    The Weekend Update has very little chemistry. And about a third of the jokes this season are race jokes, which explains why they have a black and white host pair. But that is like fingernails on a chalkboard. If you are going to do divisive humor, then at least man vs. woman is timeless and SNL lived on that for decades.

    But really, after six years with a black President, the black vs. white political jokes just ring hollow. And even the NYC centric SNL has to realize that America has Hispanics and Asians, with Hispanics outnumbering blacks and Asians to do so in a decade, so the black-centric political jokes are now cliche and retro.

    I hate the PC censorship on comedians. Couldn’t SNL move on from the 1960s view of race?

      I know what you mean. It’s just getting tired.
      The old Point/Counterpoint with Jane Curtin and Dan Akroyd was so classic.

  • Good to see Vanessa Bayer & Jay Pharoah starting to get on a run of screentime the last few weeks after falling low on the pecking order the last year or so. Vanessa especially I think has the capability to light up the screen if she’s given a dynamic character to work with.

    And Adele, wow, can’t remember the last time a musical guest got that big of an ovation. Fully deserved.

    As much as I loved the 3D printed man sketch, I think it could have been funnier if it turned out that either Beck or Taran was the printed man, and McConaughey was a real person the entire time. What do you think?

    • Paul Y.

      Who, me? As for me, that’s exactly the turn I was expecting. “Nope, he’s just a weird guy we found on the street.”

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      My exact thought. I even thought Taran’s weird delivery of “sales” as his profession was hinting at this.

    • MCBAR

      thought the same exact thing! lets say if his character turns to the audience and says “really???!!!” then the other 2 burst into flames….

  • Mark it down! We will see Vanessa’s reporter of tomorrow character back on update before 2015 is over. The audience went nuts!

    Watch Adele trying out for a job as the Adele impersonator. Very interesting.
