I Will Be Skipping Tonight's SNL

They couldn't find someone to host other than a MAGA Billionaire who fought California's Covid restrictions?

It will probably suck as usual anyways.

1. Ditto

Wouldn’t buy one of his cars either, ‘cause he’s way too libertarian for me. That connotes to anti-social.

7. "Exclusive: Elon Musk tells Fortune he's 'super fired up' about Biden"

President Biden: There’s a fan waiting to help you tackle the climate crisis—Elon Musk.

In a lengthy phone interview with Fortune late Friday, the Tesla CEO and world's richest man said he was delighted about the change in the White House, given that Joe Biden seems determined to rein in climate change—a jolting break from Donald Trump.

14. I Wonder How He Feels About Biden's Corporate Tax Plans?

He does not strike me as a "pay my fair share" kind of guy.

13. I'll watch it. Not a boycott kind of guy. SNL is generally on our side.

Mainly to see if he allows any self deprecating humor which is a major character tell for me.

15. You're not missing much

Watching now, though not a fan of Musk. Honestly, SNL needs a new cast and better writers. This group is tired. Weekend Update is the only segment worth watching since the election.

16. What a disappointing outcome from a man who seemed to be blazing his own trail.

I guess he's a lot greedier and a lot less altruistic than he has tried to portray.

17. I'm watching. He's surprisingly good. And Asperger's is now trending.

In the monologue he said he’s the first host with Asperger’s, which makes sense.

And I can’t believe it but I quite like him. He’s been in every sketch and is very him, odd, but it works.

This is about the show and nothing else so don’t give me grief.

21. I haven't seen the monologue yet... but that makes perfect sense.

I know a "kat "with Aspergers an he is indeed the most talented man in the world in his field, and more than hard to get along with. once you understand the metrics of that... you take it or leave it for what it is.

26. Agree. We turned it on out of curiosity, enjoyed seeing all their mothers.

I thought Maye Musk did a good job as someone nature had played an Elon-Asperger's-genius-off-the-edge trick on but was able to handle it, but also with a suggestion that, like Steven Spielberg's mother, she's a person who could produce him.

His monologue was quite good, but I wasn't surprised that he was likeable in his "odd but it works" way because I've seen him before. We enjoyed the monologue and Covid skit, and then turned it off.

The cold open was quite fun.


... his monologue was excellent given he ain't no actor, and I've seen much worse by people who claim to be one.

It’s all branding and personality-based…
.Elon Musk the super cool innovative genius…

28. Vox has a piece on this show, including a section titled

"A brief history of Elon Musk being a humongous jerk," which in some cases, specially Covid related, is of course an understatement.

The youngish author's argument that SNL still exists because it's important to Boomers (a ruling "gerontocracy" ) doesn't hold up for us. We almost never watch because we typically regret it when we try and agree with the author about its typical mediocrity and that its ability to corrupt people (left or right depending on direction of outrage) is mostly imaginary.

Better than I expected.
