Saturday Night Live Host: Jamie Foxx
9 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Fiscal Cliff Press Conference: Obama and John Bayner come out to talk about their solution to the fiscal cliff. No taxes and Obama tells a little story about John. John was treated to humiliation and bullying by the Republican party. John then starts to cry when he got pelted by rotten eggs. C+ (MVP: Jay Pharoh)

Monologue: Jamie Foxx comes back to host again this time promoting Django Unchained. Jamie talks about black being the new white which is why he is wearing all black. He quickly brings up Django still going on talking about blackness. Then onto Obama talking about him being black. Then a piano pops up and Jamie starts to sing. To finish out the song comes out 2 Chainz. B+ (MVP: Jamie Foxx)

Bitch, What's The Answer?: Jamie as the host playing the game with three bitches. Foxx calls everyone a bitch while asking them questions. When the contestants try to use the word bitch the host does not like it. No one gets any of the strange questions right so the show ends. B (MVP: Jamie Foxx)

J-Pop America Fun Time Now: The two Japanese loving students this time celebrate Christmas. They sing Christmas songs and still discriminate about the Japanese. The teacher to the side says they are not right with their facts but they continue their talking. Out comes a guest who acts Japanese as well. The three then start to sing being even more offensive then ever to the Japanese. B- (MVP: Tarran Killam)

Tyler Perry Presents Alex Cross 2: Medea Special Ops: Jamie plays Tyler mixing in Alex Cross and Medea. He plays them together at the same time as he/she try's to save the day. The two separate persona's fight and the bad guy gets away. B- (MVP: Jamie Foxx)

Ne-Yo - "Let Me Love You": Ne-Yo returns with his backup dancers and usual dance songs to the SNL stage. He starts with male dancers then to female who leave him alone dancing on the stage. At the very end all the dancers come out making the stage look very small. B- (MVP: Ne-Yo)

Weekend Update: Washington announced the new laws this week, Obama has a way to avoid the fiscal cliff and an ex-lesbian running for office. The first guest is Mrs. Claus to talk about the stress of Christmas. She talks about spending time with him at home and the free time she gets with him delivering presents. Seth is surprised by how she talks about her life being cool when she was young no just fine spending her life with Santa. The second guest coming on the show is a ding dong. Ding Dong does not seem happy because not much people talk about him. Ding Dong is going back into the rap business like what he did a few years ago. B (MVP: Aidy Bryant)

Dylan McDermott Or Dermot Mulroney: Contestants struggle to tell the difference between the men only two different ones brought back up again but still no one can tell the difference. When the contestants continue to get the question wrong out comes Dermot in real life. Even he does not know who he is which gets even more confusing. When the next round is announced the guys know the difference. B+ (MVP: Bill Hader)

Marcus Banks: Tree Pimp: An ex-pimp now sells Christmas trees to everyone. Marcus is so in love with his trees he goes to people's houses to see if they put up the trees right. One of Marcus's friends talks about him saying he can get dark. Marcus treats the trees like real people which is just strange for a man like him. B (MVP: Kenan Thompson)

Maine Justice: The justice of Maine comes in to look over his new case. The women says that he house had a big water problem when the women came back from a trip. The accused does not understand how this justice system works much. Mrs. Tucker has a witness and it's a congressman (Charlie Day) looking very country. The man still seems confused how Maine is run. The judge gives his sentence which is not that bad leading the whole court room to break out into a form of Mardi Gra. B+ (MVP: Jason Sudeikis)

Ne-Yo - "She Is": Ne-Yop sings a more slower song and this time gets to show his actual singing talents and we know that he actually is a pretty good singer. B+ (MVP: Ne-Yo)

Swarovski Crystals: Two ex porn stars come to advertise crystals they like. They talk about the troubles of being porn stars now coming to love crystals. A third porn star comes out to talk about the voting for porn stars with condoms which is why he quit. The group of thee seem to struggle out the end but get their point apart. B- (MVP: Cecily Strong)

Jamie was funny and he did get some good sketches but most of the time he was outshined by someone. My favourite sketch was the main justice while my least favourite was the opening sketch.
