SNL -- FEB 4, 2012 -- CHANNING TATUM WITH BON IVER


SNL got off to a very strong start, with a great Open, and an excellent monologue by Channing Tatum, host of tonight's SNL -- a hunky (6' 1"), award winning (Teen Choice Awards), 31 year old actor (born April 26, 1980), known for

Dear John
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Public Enemies
Fighting
Stop-Loss
Step Up 2: The Streets
Step Up

and other films (plus several more in post-production!) See below for links to some of his films and to his IMDB & WIKIPEDIA pages!

But after a terrific start, the rest of SNL tonight was kind of lame. Also, too many commercials. It seemed like there were more line flubs than usual... Trouble with the teleprompter & cue cards, perhaps?

Here's a brief synopsis:

Cold Open: The MOON President was a hot start. Alas, if the Earth blew up, the moon would fly away. But that would be the least of the problems.

Monologue: One of the best. Channing's description of life as a young stripper worked, and promised greast things for the rest of the show. (Not realized, alas.)

It's Getting Freaky was kind of pointless.

The promo for Downton Abbey was kind of fun.

The best sketch of the night was the filming of a promo for NBC football. That's how they do it, for sure.

Secret Word was funnier than usual.

Bon Iver has quite a high voice. Not much else to say about the music.

Real commercials for Twilight Saga and Drive DVD's. Links to Amazon below. Alas, this was the start of a huge number of commercials.

Weekend Update was OK; gently humorous. "Lana Del Rey" defended herself well against what were apparently excessive lots of complaints online. This was our take on that show:

Happy Bat Mitzvah had great promise, but wimped out when they coulda shoulda hada really wild dance.

Ruby Tuesday / Go Giants didn't work.

Go-Techs Flex wasn't well done. Didn't work.

Bongo's Clown Room seemed like it had promise as a sketch idea, but it wasn't especially interesting, and it wasn't funny.
