Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong are back as the glassy-eyed, mumbling former porn stars turned TV saleswomen. OK, so every sketch they do as these characters is essentially the same, but, let’s face it, they’re always pretty funny. Plus, this one had some pretty excellent one-liners. This time, the ladies are trying to sell us Manolo Blahniks, which they obviously have some trouble pronouncing (They call them Manual Blonde Dicks). “Other shoes are flat and for nurses,” slurs Bayer. “You’ll feel like you’re drinking lobster straight out of the sink,” adds Strong. Although the brilliant Tina Fey joins the sketch, it’s really Bayer and Strong who carry it through to the end.
5 funny skits? That hasn't happened on that show in many, many years. Tina Fey is not funny enough to save this show. They should have ended it years ago. Arcade Fire were pretty good though. Music is the only reason to DVR this show.
for the new cast members we go 5 white guys and 1 white female..... who cares about diversity and having enough people to play different parts that aren't white males or even just some non white characters.
I love Saturday Night Live. I have watched it since the original cast. I felt that last night's premier was one of the most awful shows I have seen. The skits were not thought out well, amateurish, and not very funny. Just plain dumb. To me the show bombed, which was especially bad because Tina Fey is so talented. I cannot believe she thought this was well though out and good planning. Very disappointing.
