I don't watch much SNL anymore, and I don't watch Bridgerton.  However, I'll tune in just to make googly eyes at Rege-Jean Page.

So, a sexy Brit is hosting; which gags are we going to see?

  • Shirtless scene,
  • Bridgerton/Jane Austen/rom-com parody,
  • Kissing another dude,
  • Questionable regional American accent,
  • or Black Jeopardy?
  • All of the above?

Hoping for at least Bridgerton/Jane Austen/rom-com parody and Black Jeopardy. They likely can’t resist doing a questionable regionable American accent—that’s an SNL staple.

If Adele's episode is any indication, they may just let him use his real accent in the live sketches (although she wasn't an actress). 

I know we sort of got a Bachelor sketch with Adele, but I have a feeling we'll get a more traditional one with him.

He already has done American shows and movies with an American accent so if they do the bad accent route, it'll likely be for exaggerated effect.

 I haven't watched Bridgerton. I've heard of it in passing but didn't pay much attention and didn't realize it was that popular.  I honestly can't remember when I was less familiar with a host.

We only got 4 episodes in before we bailed.  The only reason we watched at all is because Mr. ebk thought it was more about history than a Shondaland romance (bless his heart).  But during those 4 episodes, I can honestly say that Mr. Page is very, very pretty.  Even if the show tonight sucks, it will be very, very pretty.

I for one can use a little pretty tonight. He can stand there, let his eyes twinkle for 90 minutes and I’ll be good! (sans shirt, of course!)

Ha.  He missed the news that it was based on a regency romance series? 

I knew the show was popular given how long it stayed in the Top 10 (and often at or close to #1) but I still am a little surprised when people on streaming hits make main stream TV shows like SNL.

I think he got taken in by a piece in the NYT (?) about Queen Charlotte being mixed race and thought the show would concentrate on that.  Ah well...  🙂

Chloe playing Britney Spears was perfect.

 

”Episode 5, 52 minutes in.”  Yeah, that’s pretty accurate for Bridgerton. I’m more impressed that people are able to yell that loudly with masks on.

I had never heard of him or watched Bridgerton, but damn, you weren't kidding about the twinkling eyes!

And yeah, the pretty is strong with him.

This sketch about British actors playing American roles...I’m sorry, everyone may not agree but this was a really good sketch. Where have the writers been hiding? (I’ll probably regret this post in 18 minutes.)

I’m really liking their use of the host tonight. He is being very well-deployed. Also his eyes are very twinkly. Now if maybe we could have a scene where he’s looking for his lost shirt...

I wonder how they even came up with enough material for Mr. Chicken legs. " Hey Mikey, what can you do?" 

I had no idea where the ad sketch was going, but that ending was great. Reminded me of something Will Forte would do.

Wow, I'm only like, 3 sketches deep but I'm really impressed with the show and Regé-Jean so far.  I don't even watch "Bridgerton".

I thought they were going to have Kenan come out as Idris Elba to be the third hot British actor who plays American.  😄

I think that the audience is full of SNL, Regé-Jean and Bad Bunny fangirls which is really good for the energy.

Also, it feels like Pete is really killing it the past couple of episodes.  First Weed Gummy, now this???

I'm rewinding to watch the "Driver's License" sketch again.  I don't even like that song!  😁

Are you guys witnessing Regé-Jean in the "Driver's License" sketch?!?!?!  He looks like he doesn't even use cue cards.  He acts like one of the cast, not even like the host.  I'm kind of blown away.

Also this is the least amount of skits Kate has been in in awhile it seems.

I don’t know if the writers were inspired or maybe drugged, or spirited away this week. Of course there’s at least one and maybe two sketches left, but I’d say this ep has been the best overall IMO this season.

Lol I agree! Pretty solid show tonight. I haven’t felt like that about any episode in quite awhile.

Ironic (?) that the first sketch that didn't work for me was the Bridgerton sketch.  Otherwise, the show has been stellar.

There were only two things that didn't hold much for me.  One was the chicken leg sketch.  It was silly but not in a way that spoke to me.

The other was the monologue and the screaming.  I felt myself cringe every time he turned to the camera.  Aidy and Echo worked for me, though so that was 50/50.

And one thing tonight's episode has shown me is how you can't just hire Not Aidy to do the roles that Aidy would do and have the same success. I'm loving having her back.

Has Not Aidy been in any sketches tonight? I think I've seen everyone else but her.

Cold Open: Britney sketch! And it was a perfect way to cover Ted Cruz's fleeing to Cancun. "I'm pretty bad at human stuff" indeed. And Pete as Andrew Cuomo was perfect casting, we need to see more of him. They got a lot of mileage out of David Paterson, and Cuomo has done, and will do, lots of dumb things. And I can't believe they got some jokes out of Gina Carrero. As trash as she is, she is indeed better than Ted Cruz.

Monologue: Even he admits that his show is a tough watch. Already the audience has a better energy than last week. I still have no idea who he is.

Actor's Spotlight: Yep, looks like Thirsty SNL is here tonight. LOVED Kenan playing Ice Cube trying to fake a British accent. Now THAT was impressive. Also his name is Coldy Squares now. Sorry, I don't make the rules. Also impressive was the sketch not overstaying its welcome. Was just the right length.

Loco: This was a good song. Man, Ego is definitely shining lately.

Driver's License: Okay, the audience is officially the opposite of last week's: They interrupted TOO much. It was almost distracting. It was a silly sketch, though.

Mr. Chicken Legs Pageant: Okay, a 10-1 sketch showed up before Update. What a weird premise. Pete with Jack Skellington legs saved this sketch, plus Cecily going 110% on the singing. 

Ad Agency: Now here's a great way to get all the product placement out of the way. This was great and so absurd. Loved all the dumb, absurd ads. This was great, definitely sketch of the night.

WU: This was definitely a fun week for those of us who don't like Ted Cruz OR Andrew Cuomo. Pete killed it once again. I bet Colin and Pete appreciated the rowdy audience, it definitely improved their energy for the bit. Heidi's bit where she was dressed as Freddy Kruger was...weird. 

Songs of The Sea: They're really getting mileage out of the Peter Pan set, aren't they? This was fun. 

Blessing: Obviously one family's prayers were better. "Don't forget the Holy Trinity: Earth, Wind, and Fire." Holy crap, wasn't expecting Beck to pull off The Worm like that.

Bridgerton: They stuck this sketch THIS LATE in the show? Oh, it's about filming a sex scene with stuntmen, that'll do it. It was delightfully gross. 

Grocery Rap: This was a fun one. This was definitely a Good Neighbor sketch. Kyle getting tazed in that early 90s rap outfit was hilarious.

Well, this was a fun one! Regé-Jean Page definitely hit it out of the park as a solid host, and the energy he brought the audience certainly helped. Next week Nick Jonas pulls double duty. This also makes five shows in a row.

I’m sticking by my personal evaluation of this as the best episode of the season so far. Did someone finally give the writers their Wheaties? Pete, Ego, Chloe all got great moments, and I think Lauren was the only cast member I didn’t id during the show but I thought I saw her in the goodbyes.

Tl, dr- GOOD SHOW, SHOW!
