Humor

Did anyone see SNL last night?

I just watched it and I rolled my eyes several times because I was just... like, shocked at some of the skits considered funny.

The digital short with Andy Sanberg and Paul Rudd.  I usually like the digital short but this one was awful.  It showed each one of them laying on a couch being painted by the other, NUDE.  You see everything with the fuzzy effect on the private areas.  

The college guy comes to dinner with friend and family.  The family is overly expressive and kissed each other probably 50 times to show their affection, freaking out the invited friend of course.  Scene ends with friend and "Dad" acting out a 5-7 open mouth kissed and basically being all over each other.

Finally, the pink gay cat on the Weekend Update standing up for his rights to marry the little green martian, I get it, but it all just leaves me saying, "really? that's funny?"

The other night Nick and I watched three episodes of the Cosby Show back to back.  Tell me a show these days that compares to this good clean fun that can make you laugh with out shocking you and grossing you out.  No, I'm serious... does anyone have any?  I would love some good funny tv.  The Office I know, anymore?

My memory is a little fuzzy so I can't entirely claim completely"good & clean" but How I met Your Mother is one of the funniest shows I've seen ever. The downside is that its one of the few 20 min without commercials sitcoms that you really need to watch in order starting with season 1 to get the all the jokes.

Also, 30 Rock is pretty good.

I had the exact same feelings about SNL last night. I actually quit watching shortly after Weekend Update because it was not funny. But, you have to feel bad for them - there isn't as much for them to make fun of now that the election is over.

But I remember staying up late with my parents to watch Pat and the TriDelt sisters and the motivational speaker and it was FUNNY. now it just seems like if there isn't potty humor or someone acting like a flaming homosexual (nothing wrong with flaming homosexuals) it doesn't make the SNL cut. Whatever.

I actually enjoyed the Snaglepuss bit on SNL ...i even went on YouTube to look at old cartoons of him...
Justin Timberlake was good and funny to me ....
Good shows ?? I watch The New Adventures of Old Christine...its good and I also watch Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
30 Rock is by the far the funniest on TV right now though ...
I loved The Cosby Show and I never used to miss NEWHART during the 80s

I seldom find newer SNL stuff all that funny. I like older episodes. Corey has some on DVD. I agree on the Cosby Show. I am a Reba addict, myself.
