    It was cuz of Eminem

  • This is just weird!

    @Steph:

    Sit down with that. Nobody’s checking for Eminem’s 41 year old ass. Me along with thousands of other watched because of Kerry Washington. Need you be reminded her show Scandal is #1 on CBS.

    Congrats Kerry! There was some really funny skits on your show. There was some stupid unfunny skits also but it would not be SNL if that had not happen.

    She was fabulous, she should quit Scandal and be the new cast member.

    @Steph, not only did he lipsynch, and is coming off a song that was oddly offensive to gays, but his personality is so dim they couldn’t work him into any sketches.

    The show was JUST awful – so embarrassing! Miss Universe 2013 in Moscow – really? Instead of criticizing the anti-gay propaganda law they came up with a bunch racist jokes.

    @annushka:
    I couldn’t agree with you more

  • Mrs. Gaston

    i could care less about SNL or Eminem (so you’re WRONG, Steph) – i only watched for Kerry – she was awesome and super funny! love her! the fox video was hilarious.

  • Steph

    @Mrs. Gaston: all the skits were BORING and not funny, SNL has gone down hill

  • Steph

    @This is just weird!: ya i watch scandal. Just dont think any of the skits were that great

  • Steph

    @NE1: lol ya cuz each racist skit was so much better then him performing

  • 55vineyard

    Heard it was good from friends, but shoot at age 60 I just cannot stay up that long.

  • Amy
