Blake Shelton seems like a nice guy which is one of the reasons we found ourselves rooting for him when he hosted Saturday Night Live last night. Considering we aren’t too familiar with his music or his time as a judge on The Voice but damn that guy has a nice smile! Blake came into studio 8H to with some of his guitar and Southern charm, and put it on heavy. While Shelton was his charming self, some of the sketches felt like half-baked premises rather than fully realized sketches, but we did however get to see Leslie Jones laugh, a wishing boot, tested Pete Davidson’s sexuality, and Riblet, Riblet forever!
Cold Open: Patriots Press Conference
During all of this deflated football controversy, what I’m most surprised by is that the presence of #flexball behind coach Bill Belichick and Tom Brady during all these press conferences. Also, I don’t follow football but is Dougie Spoons a real person? Because if he isn’t, that’s highly unfortunate.
While going for a Hee-Haw intro monologue might not have translated to a younger audience, from the moment we saw Leslie Jones in that wig and dress, we laughed a lot. That counts for something.
