Things We Saw Today: With Eddie Murphy and Lizzo Saturday Night Live Was Good as Hell!
Maybe we should call this things we say last night? Saturday Night Live is hit and miss nowadays but man was last night a legit hit thanks entirely to the long-awaited return of Eddie Murphy as a host. Murphy hasn’t gone live from New York for over thirty years, but it was worth the wait to see the return of some classic characters and bits: Gumby, Mister Robinson and more.
We also got some great new bits and I lost it at this combo of The Holiday Bake-Off with Nailed It. Bonus for Eddie for the censored profanity at the end which had him breaking.
The democratic debate scetch was pretty great too but the retro bit we loved the most was the return of Alfalfa on the Masked Singer. It was more than otay.
But that wasn’t the only great musical performance. We would 100% happily die for Lizzo at this point and she proved on SNL exactly why with this happy as hell holiday treat.
That’s it for SNL for the season but they’ll be back with punk-ass bitch Kylo Ren himself, Adam Driver and Halsey. And if you want more new Eddie Murphy: Dolomite is My Name is available on Netflix!
