‘Saturday Night Live’ Recap: Fast Forwarding with Jamie Foxx

ALTNo one watches on Saturday Night Live live on Saturday night anymore. They should call it Hungover Sunday Morning Recorded because anyone who has a social life and doesn’t like to have their time wasted by unfunny sketches and too many commercials watches it like that. It’s so much easier when the show is on the DVR and you can just fast forwards through all the boring bits. (The even smarter types wait for the one good sketch to go viral and just watch it on Facebook sometime at their leisure and don’t mess with all the comedic chaff.) So, in the spirit of how we all watch SNL (or HSMR0 these days, I recorded just how long into each sketch I got until getting out the remote and zipping on to the next sketch. Jamie Foxx, a man as overrated as butterscotch candies, hosted, which probably sped up my trigger finger about a django times (django is Jamie Foxx for “jillion”).
