    I watched the intro, the monologue and JTimberlake as a Bowl of Soup, then turned off SNL. I missed the best part ... we had a holiday gathering at the house today and a coworker made me watch the best part. Dick in a Box was effing hilarious! Next to Lazy Sunday, I'll bet performing with Justin Timberlake was the highlight of Andy Samberg's career.

    Aside from that (and I'm still laughing), the problem with SNL is that while the intent is funny, the sketches are just dragged out way too long.

    Just a great, great parody. Did they research every Color Me Badd video for that? Absolutely priceless skit.

    I actually logged on to start this very thread. That "Dick in a Box" song was the funniest thing I've seen on that show in a long time. The rest of the show? Eh, not so much.

    Actually, a few weeks ago when Ludacris was the host there was a great sketch with a character called "Blizzard Man." Did anyone else see this? It's laugh out loud funny. "The girls shake their boobs and my dingy gets excited." Then they show Ludacris pumping his fists in beat, hilarious. Not sure why they can't be consistently funny.

    There's really just one recurring sketch on this show -- "Two A-holes ..."

    That's a problem. And it's going to continue to be a problem so long as they keep up this dumbass practice of including the guest host in every damn skit. I'm pretty sure it started a couple years ago, when they really had nothing to fill time with and they just stuck the hosts in some ridiculous sketch to draw a couple of cheap laughs.

    But if they want to get this show back to where it was before Ferrell left, they've got to find some recurring bits -- specifically, some consistently funny recurring bits. Having those skits only helps the show, since most of the work is done before they even write the lines. They get two or three that they can rely on week after week, they can then spend more time writing the rest of the show.

    Hell, I think that's the reason this week's show was one of the best in a long time. They went back and pulled some old stuff and it gave them more time to come up with better skits to fill in the holes.

    And if you don't believe this was one of the best SNLs in a long, long time, you haven't been watching the last three years. There have been several that were absolutely painful to watch.

    timberlake basically playing forrest gump's dumber, prince valiant-haired brother for the target lady sketch was pretty funny. "i hope a third thing doesn't haaapppen to themmmmm..."

    and the "dick in a box" short was f'n hysterical, IMO.

    Two A Holes is pretty funny, too. They did one when Annette Benning was hosting, where the TAH volunteered to be Mary and Joseph at a live nativity. Pretty good stuff.

    Timberlake has limited talent but he's fun to watch perform. He's doing what Elvis did, mimicking black performs for green pieces of paper.

    Gee, and I was almost freightened to look when I saw boots was chiming in on "Dick in a Box." I'm disappointed -- almost too tame. You feeling alright, B?
