EPISODE REVIEWS


Ray Romano / The Corrs
March 13, 1999


[OPENING] Barbara Walters Looking For Phone Sex

This was kinda funny. I liked how she introduced herself and the other people.
Grade: B

 

[MONOLOGUE] Ray Romano

This was probably one of the best monologues of the season. His jokes about his baby were pretty funny too. The only bad part was when the two parents from Everybody Loves Raymond came out. They weren't too funny.
Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] ESPN SportsCenter

Sweet sassy molassey this was funny. I loved how he tried to say catch-phrases like "Ya gotta get to White Castle before the weirdos get there!" "I'm a little teapot short and stout and I'll go write up your dress!" Then it was funny how they made fun of Stuart Scott. Boo-yaw! He always says something from a rap song on the real show, so it was funny. "The funk soul brother! Boo-yaw!" I also liked when it turned out that Ray just talked like that: "Sweet sassy molassey, I'm tryin to do a show!" This was the funniest thing I've seen in a while.
Grade: A+

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Meatloaf

This was kinda funny.
Grade: B

 

[SKETCH] Roberto Benigni Has Restaurant In Stitches

I really liked this one. It reminded me of something Will Ferrel or Chris Farley would do. He got away with everything and people just laughed: "I have third degree burns on my hands! Ha ha ha!"
Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] Pimp Chat

I didn't really like this. In fact I thought it sucked.
Grade: D

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

This was a good one. I liked Monica Lewinsky and Cheri Oteri.
Grade: A

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] The Corrs

I had never heard of them before now, but they are good. Not only that but they are sexy (except the guys). Especially the electric violin player. I liked the Scottish sounding part.
Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] Suel Forrester at the NCAA

I thought this was pretty funny. Especially when he said tampon. But it got old
Grade: B

 

[SKETCH] Office Guy Resorts To Crying

I liked this sketch alot. It was kinda predictable, but it was funny when he pulled out the juice box.
Grade: B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] The Corrs

I don't remember this song as much. But the singers were still sexy.
Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] Quit Judging My Dreams!

Suprisingly, this was good for the last sketch. Ray was pretty funny.
Grade: B

 

OVERALL:
This was the best show of the season, aside from Pimp Chat. I think that the Corrs will be pretty big soon. Ray Romano is hilarious and I love his show. Keep it comin, SNL!
Grade: A
