The clips I saw from this weekend’s SNL were pretty great, including the Slim Shady-Santa sketch and Cecily Strong doing a perfectly deranged Melissa Carone alongside Kate McKinnon’s farty Rudy Giuliani. [Pajiba]

    My first comment when I saw Guiliani’s witness was “Do you think there’s an actual deathmatch going on backstage at SNL to decide who gets to play this woman?”

  2. Juju says:

    The SNL skit was hysterical. When she said “comorbidititties” I LOST IT! 🤣

    Millissa Carone is funnier than SNL on Saturday. Over 20,000,000 view her on the internet and I believe I have viewed her 10,000,000 because I laugh out loud every time I watched her, that was some funny %#@$, 😝

  4. Natters5 says:

    The irony in this article is that I am sure Melissa Carone was channeling Victoria Jackson, a former member of SNL who went bonkers for the far right. So it was Cecily playing Melissa playing Victoria.

    Afterdavids sent me over the edge. I was about to stop listening cuz it’s painful lol. These people are reality nightmares. Hmm, that’s a new oxymoron.

    SNL was great on Sat. I think Jason Bateman is so funny and even Pete made me laugh in his Slim Shady Santa Bit. But the cold open was so so funny. The parent phone call to have the not coming home for Xmas skit had me howling lol.

  7. Marie55 says:

    That Stu skit is a pretty straightforward ripoff of Scott Thompson’s (Kids in the Hall) parody of Stan. I don’t think Pete Davidson needs a plagiarism scandal, but people are calling for him a genius for that skit. Scott Thompson and Kids in the Hall are legend. Sad.

  8. Emm says:

    The call home skit was hilarious and I’m glad we’ve already had that convo back when this first started and we didn’t want to visit for Memorial Day weekend. Now that the family has basically shunned us and punished us for trying to stay safe we no longer need to have these conversations.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      I’m so sorry. I am lucky that my family are all on board with staying safe. It must be maddening to deal with that.

    I have no doubt that pug will figure out how to open the front door, too! Great SNL opener, too! ‘I have an interest in fossils.’

    Howling at that SNL skit. I’m so glad that people are starting to realize what a national treasure Cecily Strong is. She has been consistently cracking me up throughout her whole tenure on the show but I feel like she’s really ascended to new heights in recent years with her iconic takes on Melania and Jeanine Pirro… and now Melissa Carone. Her Jeanine Pirro bit on Weekend Update (and spit-tak’ing her martinis all over Colin Yost) is up there with the funniest bits in SNL history IMO.

    One thing about the SNL opening that fell flat to me was Governor Whitaker’s would be kidnappers. It wasn’t some cute situation where they wanted to make her play board games and only feed her Twinkies. They were planning to murder her.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Agreed, that was not funny. And now Jocelyn Benson (Secretary of State in Michigan) is getting armed nuts harassing her at her home.

  12. DataFalling says:

    I’m from Michigan, and when our local papers posted the SNL skit on facebook, Melissa’s sister was alllll up in the comments yelling at people and defending her sister “who has more backbone than anyone here commenting.” Fun was had.

    I’m not finding any comedy in this, wait until late January then I’ll laugh.
