Dammit! Why cut away when U2 was going to do song #4?
The look on that woman's face as Bono jumped in her lap like a Chippendale dancer was priceless!
That was really great, hearing "I Will Follow" for a 3rd song (has any other musical act done 3 songs on SNL before?). Hell, if Lorne Michaels was smart, he should have just let U2 play for 90 minutes.
I always TiVo SNL so I can skip thru commercials and the usual lame "musical act" - I can get thru the show in about 50 minutes. Tonight's the 1st night I've watched the music segments since I can remember.
Wow, that reminded me of the old days. Remember when EVERY week featured an act that mattered?? After 25 years U2 is still showing all the wannabes just how it's done.
It was fun seeing the cast rocking out at the end as well.
What happened...a funny, fast moving episode with a great LIVE musical performance. Missed the first few minutes, but one of the few where I stayed through...well, almost...except I left after 12:54 commercial break ;-(
It's a shame that they had to go and get a band from the 80's to actually have a decent musical performance. U2 showed that you don't need backing tracks, fake drums, and 30 instruments to have a great live performance. Just guitar, bass, and drums, nothing really for the sound guy to screw up.
Here's to SNL booking more actual bands, and not just the latest studio-manufactured pop acts.
I fell asleep after Weekend update but the first 45 minutes was the best I've seen in a couple years.
Debbie Downer was good but it went on too long.
Lifelong friends skit was icky but amusing at the same time.
U2 rocked! Love Vertigo.
That Bop-It skit at the end of weekend update was bad. We have that toy and my wife said that she'll never look at it the same. LOL! Good over all weekend update. First time I've seen a whole one with Amy and Tina. Yes, Tina is hotter w/o her thick black nerdy glasses (she's only merely cute with them).
Too bad she's sinfully unfunny. If people could get past the fact that she's SNL's first female head writer, they'd see that she's been running the show into the ground ever since she got the gig. Fey's "success" is definitely a case of reverse-sexism, which is especially unacceptable when the other current female castmembers are the best SNL has ever had. Will Ferrell and Tracey Morgan kept the show afloat when they were on under her reign but they're both gone and not even talented castmembers like Fred Armisen, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Chris Parnell can rise above Fey's mediocrety. If they got rid of Fey and the castmembers I didn't mention, SNL could be something great again.
