    Miley Cyrus is pretty much the only celebrity that annoys me. The reason why is because she cant sing, I dont think she can act, and from what Ive seen on interviews, I dont care for her personality. Maybe if I was 8 like my cousin I would like her but...nope. Sorry Miley fans, just the way I feel. I will take an episode filled with the Twilight cast, Jersey Shore cast, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and High School Musical cast combined than a Miley ep. But Ill try to make do, I figured they would book her at some point, and I like The Strokes so. If its too awful I can FF on my Tivo LOL

    I'm afraid Justin is in the minority on most of those. Hamm, Stone, and Rudd were great. Cranston was good. Bridges, Lynch, and DeNiro had their moments



    Don't get me started on The "Emma Stone" OR "Jon Hamm" episodes, If I could go off Uncensored; That would blow-up TV.com. There's too much to mention negative about those 2 episodes (Let alone this season.)

    If you hadn't noticed, Justin has succeeded mp34mp as our resident misanthrope from the Chicago suburbs.

    Though Cranston, Lynch, and DeNiro were nothing special, I disagree with Justin in that we haven't had an outright bad episode all season... yet.

    Wrangler Open Fly Jeans was really funny, especially being from Wisconsin. Could be just me though.


    "The Creep" isn't the best LI digital short. But way better than "I Just Had Sex."


    As far as I can remember, the rest weren't that great.


    I don't remember which ep it was, but it was I think the first time Andy appeared as Mark Zuckerberg on WU, and was complaining about the casting for Social Network. That was the only funny bit I can remember. I don't remember which ep it was from, but that stuck out for me.


    This is the first season in a while where I am purposely skipping episodes.


    Though something occurred to me, a process of elimination, if I could only skip one episode between two people I dislike, who would I prefer to skip?

    Cranston was a bit better than Lynch and DeNiro.

    WHOA wait a second, I agree with Cranston and DeNiro, Stone, Lynch, and Bridges were in the middle for me, but I liked Hamm and Rudd the mostso far this season, and now that I think of it, Jesse Eisenberg's episode may have been better then Cranston (I hated the writing in that episode) and DeNiro.

    That is a good way of going about it. I try to approach each live show with an open mind, regardless of the host or musical guest.


    On that note, here's the Tuesday promos.

    They all seem pretty good IMO.

    My favorite one is the one where she says "Pretty Cool."



    Can't be worse than that Terrbile January Jones Snoozefest Show.

    this isnt a movie. this is a skit show about skits and entertainment just because you didnt have the humor to laugh af skits other people did doesnt make those skits a negative part of the show. you should really consider what you say

    Her voice isn't as stuck on one note as I remember it being back in the day when I used to have endure watching Hannah Montana when my sister had the TV.

    I have an observation... if you go to Saturday-Night-Live.com then I'm sorry for me being redundant.

    What's with the promos only using the "Solid Six", as it seems (being Bill, Andy, Kristen, Jason, Kenan, Fred) over and over, when we not only have 2 other repertory cast members (plus Seth, but that's a different story), and 5 featured performers? I'm pretty sure Kristen, Jason, Andy, and Bill did promos their first season on the show. I know it's kind of a whiny thing for me to say, but, I mean, come on. They've used the same people in promos for the past 2 and a half years now.

    I seriously expected a Miley Cyrus show sketch after the monologue. Black Eyed Peas caught me off guard.

    Good show so far. Loved the Disney Channel bit. Miley obviously has no problem poking fun at herself.
