First off, I'm no Andy Samberg fan and I'm sure he didn't write it, but the Rahm Emanuel sketch was the funniest, most enjoyable political sketch in months. Oh yes, even better than Jon Hamm sexy dancing for democrats. I said it.
Ashton Kutcher's Mel Gibson is probably the worst celebrity impression I've ever heard, but Kristen Wiig's Elizabeth Hasselbeck never gets old ("Gay people love secrets! They love them. They love them. Love them."), and same goes for Fred Armisen's Joy Behar.
I don't understand it, but I concur that it's a thing: so many people are just dumbfounded by the complexities of Burn Notice's premise and popularity. Explaining that show to people is like how difficult explaining Twitter was to people three years ago, and I have no idea why, considering it's the number one show on cable (not number eight, as the sketch claims). I guess it's just the equivalent of how I look at NCIS or something:
STDs so old they have racist names? Brilliant, hilarious concept, though the execution could have been a little more inventive. If you told anybody off the street to come up with old timey racist STD names I guarantee you Oriental Fever would be the first one they'd say. Believe me; I've conducted studies on this. Still a funny sketch overall though.
I thought it was going to be some tired Lonely Island-esque gangsta rap, but it turned out to be anti-establishment punk rock that bitched about Reagan in the '80s. That was a relief. A very funny relief.
Freaking out about grapes for almost full four minutes is really only something Will Forte could pull off. Did I love the "Horse-penised boy" gay revelation joke? Not particularly, but that's a matter of taste, I suppose. The grape stuff, on the other hand? All money! Particularly "Grape attack! Go away! Go away! Grape attack! Go away! Go away!" as a method of defense against an army.
I also enjoyed the Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig characters who start singing songs they make up as they go along on Update for the first time ever, but only because they broke character and laughed. It's time to retire those characters.
Your favorite sketches of the night?
