Al Sharpton / Pink
December 6, 2003
Intro: I told myself I wouldn't
write another damn review... because it was getting boring to
me.... but this one goes out to $inie... for believing in my
writing skills.... and.... and for living in one of those cities
that refused to AIR the episode because of some damn equal time
So this one is for you little $inie C. who is sick in the hospital.
Here is your dying wish.
Equal Time TV: I haven't seen
the real president of NBC before (well, maybe I have in an NBC
special or something and just didn't notice or give damn) but
it didn't seem like Jimmy did a good job. It just looked like
Jimmy was using his regular speaking voice and just moving his
arms really fast. What really held the sketch together was the
writing. This was a nice way to start to show.
Who Ripped It: Jimmy Fallon (because he was the only one in
Monologue: This was nice too. Al Sharpton didn't seem comfortable
though. He seemed more relax when he was a guest on the Daily
Show with John Stewert. I know he's used to speaking in front
of big crowds, but Al Sharpton had that "oh shit, I'm not
funny and the audience will find out soon even though they already
know it" feel to him while he was up there. Glad Tracy
came out and did his thing as the "old" Al Sharpton.
The bit was funny. I could have done without the singing, but
it seems like every damn person wants to sing in their monologue
when they get a chance to host.
Who Ripped It: Tracy Morgan
Mom Jeans: This old commercial is still funny. I saw an old
white woman wearing some mom Jeans inside Walmart the other day.
Who Ripped It: The Pants
MJ In a Roller Coaster: Oh shit! I love Amy's Michael Jackson
impersonation! It's always off the chain. This is gonna be
a classic sketch.
Who Ripped It: Amy Poehler
Brian Fellow's Safari Planet: I never did like Brian Fellows
sketches. I'm just glad Tina was in the sketch, instead of just
update. The Snowman thingy was good. Tracy should have had
better characters. I loved Astronaut Jones and Dominican Lou,
but Brian Fellows should have never made it passed dress EVER.
Who Ripped It: The Snowman
3 Wise Men: Oh this sketch was on point! Tracy Morgan did his
thing. I never saw this coming. This is one of the best sketches
of the night. It was funny how fast Kenan & Tracy's voices
changed as soon as Jimmy came up on 'em. Jeff Richards as the
Angel was a funny part too.
Who Ripped It: Tracy Morgan
Weekend Update: Jimmy and Tina brung it once again. I loved
it when they bashed all the lame cities and states refused to
air the episode because of the equal time laws. The Paris Hilton
bit with Jimmy talkin' about "getting into the Paris Hilton"
Who Ripped It: Tina Fey
Black Stereotype: One thing I hate when a black person hosts
SNL is when they do a damn racial sketch. WTF! It's like they
can't let one whole episode go by without doin' at least one
"we must squash racial stereotypes" sketch joke. Kill
that, but I have to admit that this was funny! Maya's voice,
Al Sharpton's reaction to playing in a sketch like this, then
ending part with Will Forte getting cooked in a pot, all of it!
The part that I liked the most was Kenan & Finesse's part.
Kenan: Who there?
Finesses: Me there!
Kenan: Who say me there?
Finesse: I say me there!
Kenan: Who say I say me there!?!?
Finesess: I say me say me there!
Kenan: I don't know what you gone do, but I know what my feets
gone do! Feets do yo stuff!!!!
OMG! That's some house Negro shit for you right there! This
sketch had too many jokes to name but I loved Finesse's "I
don't know about you, but I need this job I have 36 children
Who Ripped It: Finesse Mitchell
Casa De' Sushi: This sketch was not all that funny. The only
things that sorta made me laugh in this sketch was Al's bad acting
and the way he was saying sushi was nasty, and Maya looking as
if she didn't want to be in the sketch. Them using 2Pac's "California
Who Ripped It: Amy Poehler for being happy to be in a sketch.
Candidate Party: I liked this sketch, but the impressions could
have been stronger I guess. It just looked like the "white
males in the cast just wearing gray wigs" to me. I wonder
which one of these impressions we will be seeing next year for
the cold opener shit we don't know, it might even be Kenan Thompson
doin' an Al Sharpton.
Who Ripped It: Jimmy Fallon
Latoya Jackson Show: Oh no you guys, I'm giggling. Why am I
giggling. Ohhhh, I'm still giggling. This shit was funny!
Maya did an on point Latoya Jackson and Kenan did his thing as
Chaka Khan. They should keep doin' this sketch just like Versace.
Who Ripped It: Maya Rudolph
Vasquez's Cab: Man, this character is not the best in the biz.
I can't stand Vasquez! When Horatio does him my face just squenches
up. This one had some funny elements to it though, but Horatio
can't carry a sketch to save his life.
Who Ripped It: Horatio (only because he actually HAD jokes.
Even though most of 'em weren't that funny to me).
Cryogenix: This commercial is "aiight". They show
it too much though.
Who Ripped It: The graphics showing people being frozen.
UnEarthed: YES! Darrell in a sketch that doesn't have ish to
do with politics!! I was feeling it! I was sold as soon as
he said "even though I'm dead. That doesn't mean I don't
have a new album coming out. Ain't that the truth. Dead rappers
do it all the time. LOL
Who Ripped It: Darrell Hammond
