Recap: ‘Saturday Night Live’ with Megan Fox

September 27th, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

As the Saturday Night Live writers and producers pulled together the series’ 35th season premiere, they must have had one rule in mind: keep it sexy. With Megan Fox hosting, it wasn’t too much of a struggle, and every sketch featuring the ‘Transformers’ star made good use of her looks, starting off with a monologue that poked fun of the fake nude photos of her scattered across the Internet. We saw the 23-year as a blonde bombshell flight attendant in one sketch; a red-headed Russian bride in another. When the spotlight wasn’t on Fox, world politics came to the forefront. To open the show, Fred Armisen donned a brown robe and did his best Omar Gadhafi, blaming a computer crash for the Libyan president’s rambling U.N. speech. In an otherwise flat week, the week’s standout was newcomer Jenny Slate — who dropped an F-bomb in the live feed (it was fixed for the West Coast) — and Kenan Thompson. His Grady Wilson impression was one of the funniest bits of the night (dip the ladle!), and his Jean K. Jean report on Weekend Update upstaged Kristen Wiig’s Judy Grimes. Only time will tell if Thompson’s this season’s breakout star, but in the meantime, check out some of this weekend’s SNL highlights below. — Rebecca Harper (), Editor

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and
    videos, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    Over the water cooler, I heard about some segments from the season premiere SNL that did not appear the “full episode” I watched on Hulu. The musical performances were not shown either.

    Can you guys explain your policy for what is/is not included on “full episodes.”

    Seriously Rebecca? Keenan was awful, as usual. Jean K Jean was worse than awful.
