Pharoah as Shaq seems intentional to be bad looks wise but he gets the voice right. Kenan as Barkley is already old so nobody should care.

SNL's music section is at the right time so I can tune in GSP vs Hendricks fight.

It's not that his portrayal was bad, it's that they didn't do anything funny. Charles and Shaq have a legitimately funny dynamic, but they didn't play on that, the just played off of Pharaoh's impersonation which was well done, just not original, or good enough to be laugh-worthy.

They need to fire the entire writing staff. It was only 8 years ago when the show was really good.

There's just too many problems with it. Lorne is in charge of the show, and he admitted to not getting stuff back when Sandler was on. You can't be 20 years out of the loop and still making decisions.

They need to grow some balls, hire funny people and change shit up... But they won't and it will wither and die. My mom watched since the show started and even she said to me, "SNL just sucks now."

They hire 'funny actors' instead of comics.

If you're into podcasts at all and you want to hear Moynihan be great, listen to this podcast episode. He plays a funny character: http://www.earwolf.com/episode/time-bobby/

I think GSP won it fairly, everyone is just pissed because the rounds that Hendricks won was more convincing then the ones that GSP one. People are all caught up in damage done and forget its about the rounds.
