Trump / Toots and the Maytals
April 3, 2004
For the SNL fans that don't watch
The Apprentice it probably wasn't that great of an episode. Lorne
still needing to fill his high ratings/poor host selection addiction seemed
to bend over on this one. It wasn't even SNL. It was Donald
Trump Live with special guests the cast of SNL. Anyway I
have watched this HUGE show so all the Apprentice jokes
didn't fly over my head like the term 'f-bomb' did for The
Donald. Good jab at Frasier (4 years too late Kelsey)
George and Carolyn get involved and it was a pretty good start,
Finesse gets some rare screen time and is actually the subject
of conversation. Suprised Jeff Richards' name wasn't brought
up. 'Lorneo' makes another appearence and fires Jimmy who makes his
depature in a taxi ala The Apprentice. Carolyn gets to say
the famous line LFNY. Lorne should trademark that if it isn't
Trump of course doesn't run from the door like most
guests, talks about his life and then introduces Darrell who
is also in Trump-mode. "You're fired. Jeff Zucker does a
unannouced pop in and then is fired. Not the worst not the
best, you would think that would be it as far as The
Apprentice goes but sadly no.
Fear Factor: Junior
Don't give them ideas! Fred with a great Joe Rogan impression.
Live with Regis and Kelly
Donald of course is a guest as himself and many a boy are jealous
that Darrell gets to wear Amy everytime this sketch airs. Rachel
Dratch subsitutes for Kattan as the questionable Gelman. Dress
was a nice touch, she did a decent job. The 3 cameras on Kelly
was a funny idea.
The VIP Seats
Poor Tracy Morgan. His NBC sitcom is doomed and his Star Jones
impression well actually he stil has the best one. Kenan's impressions
of black women all seem to be the same. No matter who it is they
all sound the same. Short and sweet.
Donald Trump's House of Wings
Donald can dance, and the chicken dancers.... do they have no
self respect? I know the current MADTV performers don't but c'mon.
Only positive thing was the map with the previous unlikely establishements.
I'd probably eat at The Donald's.
Should've went with the Trump Date dealy, I mean why brake from
the tone the show has already set.That being huge ass kiss
to Donald. Anyway, Tina covers up but she isn't wearing a shirt
so it looks like she's trying out for the Naked News or Weekend
Flash with her panty holding and flashing at the end. Maya did
her best of the night as the evil Omarosa. The barrage of items
falling on her head was just right. The Details magazine line
The Prince and the Pauper
Ah the usual host plays different character but makes fun of
his real self sketch. Slow at times, but good ending and weird
seeing Trump out of a suit. At this time I'm wondering where
the hell is Forte? Someone poison his bottle of Trump Ice?
Fathers and Sons
Trump didn't crack up like the other three (Seth briefly). Fallon
picking up Sanz -Anyone get deja vu of Farley picking up Spade?
This needed something, besides people who can't stop laughing
when they're supposed to be sad. Nice line by Seth to cover.
It's after WU so nothing is supposed to be that good.
They tried. Burried under all the Trump sketches was a possible
cold opener. The part about Cheney was funny should've continued
there. Lacked comedy. Maybe next week Forte will return
The Apprentice Band
This was the best idea of the night. When Trump mentioned the
battle of the bands, funny. It wasn't the funniest sketch but
I'll give credit with coming up with a idea like this. Shame
that this is the 8th segment of the night with Trump/Apprentice
references. Maya as the bitch Katrina joins the band. If you
were to combine Amy Henry and Rachel Dratch you would bulid the
most perfect woman. Okay exaggerating but someone give Donald
the Marty Kulp keyboard so he doesn't appear retard in front
of that thing. The soundcheck was the best part.
Apparently Forte was visible, but all I could see was Trump,
Carolyn, George and the musical guests.
