I watched it last night, I laughed a good amount. Not everything landed, but thats the way it goes really.

He's doing this to gearing up for doing stand up again. He has a Netflix special coming. I can't wait for it. I think he's apologized enough for his homophobic content from the 80s. Delirious and Raw changed my life as a kid.

I think it had more hits than misses. Really really liked the opening monologue where it was all the black dudes ever. And the Gumby for the news and Mr. Robinsons updated neighborhood!

Don't forget Buckwheat!

I think the original Buckwheat sketch is better known than Little Rascals at this point.

SNL struggles I think. Kate McKinnon carries the show (kinda like Eddie in his day). Anyway, this is the first episode I've made it through since Chappelle's.

YES! I don't watch unless I like the musical guest so it helped that Lizzo was on.

It’s funny to see that his stuff is still edgy after all these years. I really hope this is part of a return to form for him.

Velvet Jones was iffy... and while I don't know if the target audience knows who Gumby and Buckwheat are, they were funny enough to carry.

But Mr. Robison aged perfectly.

It helped that they updated it but people not living NYC probably was wondering what rent control apartments are!
