The performers at SNL’s 40 Reunion Show said it was like a high school reunion.
So much talent in one place. Dozens of stars covering several generations of performers. Tina Fay described performers as hanging out in clicks just like a high school 40th.
Social media buzzed all night. The ratings were huge.
Some fans commented on Facebook how much they loved everything. But others wondered what the producers were thinking at times.
The Californian’s bit was long and lost.
Miley Cyrus sang ’50 Ways To Leave Your Lover’ without Paul Simon who was in the house.
Kanye West had more airtime than most SNL legends. But why they wondered? The SNL greats were who they wanted to see. .
Personally I would have liked more classic bits. It would have been so easy for Chris Rock to introduce Eddie Murphy and lead into classic Murphy clips. Or, Chevy Chase intro his best. Instead Murphy just chatted for a minute and Chase stumbled down the stairs to the stage. Both were lost opportunities.
Many asked on Facebook why Dan Ackroyd’s classic ‘French Chef’ bit was missing? It’s on Hulu with many of the very best from SNL
It is one of the very best.
Still funny after all these years.
