Saturday Night Live: 4/12/08 - Ashton Kutcher and Gnarls Barkley

Saturday Night Live: 4/12/08

Hosted by Ashton Kutcher
with musical guest, Gnarls Barkley

This is the Andy-less post (except for this first one) where we go through all the videos to make sure Andy isn't in them.

Cold Open: Petraeus Hearings
General Petraeus testifies before Senators Clinton, McCain, Obama, and um, Bill Hader. =^)

Andy's in this one. But it's mostly an ensemble piece.

The political Cold Opens continue. This one's pretty funny, and it's good to see that SNL is at least making fun of McCain a little.

I digress, but I can't believe that Hilary Clinton actually pointed to her SNL skit in a political debate. It's true, and she was talking to Barack Obama and Brian Williams, two guys who were on SNL a long time before she was.

So she comes off as whiney... observe...

Kristen does some great impressions. Featuring Kristen, Amy, Ashton, and a little bit of Jason.

Gnarls Barkley - Run

Gnarls Barkley - Run [Live @ SNL]

Interesting music. Not bad.

Death By Chocolate #2
Chocolate snuffs out lives at a hospital

I'm sorry, but this is horrible. Bad humor. It might be funny on paper, but I can't believe they let this one get through.

Judy Grimes: Just Kidding
Weekend Update travel writer, Judy Grimes, is just kidding

Kristen Wiig is pretty funny. She's strong enough to play an extremely nervous person on TV rather than actually being nervous. Plus she speaks so fast and never seems to mess up. She's steel.

Overall, Kristen Wiig was the only one on fire here. There were a few good lines in the cold open, and Andy had one good "weed" gag, but this is pretty much the Kristen Wiig show. Come on, Andy! Bring on some digital short goodness! This also makes me wonder if Jorma's around...

i thought the Death by Chocolate one was a very dark way

I think that the whole episode was awful & I was disgusted by "Daiquiri Girl". The weed gag was funny though.

But, Andy is on "Night of Too Many Stars" on Comedy Central right now!!!
