Anybody excited for Sandler?

Which character/sketch will he revisit?

Opera Man is the most obvious

They could do Canteen Boy I guess but most of his memorable sketches were with Spade and Farley.

So has Sandler just been holding that Farley song for 20 years?

At the end he talks about wishing Farley was here so they could fly out and do Grown Ups 3, and Grown Ups 2 came out in 2013... although that line could have easily been changed or added.

I thought Opera Man was pretty good, and also enjoyed the Sandler Family Reunion. Not a bad episode. At first I thought the Clothes Are Holes was funny, but it was way too silly to be a 3+ minute skit.

Proud of myself, saw 10 secs of that cold open and hit the FF!

Also how weird is it to have a musical guest that doesn't really perform any music (note i haven't gotten to the 2nd song yet)

I thought the travel-through-time skit was ok too. And I enjoyed a lot of the Queen song opener.

As far as DJ Khaled, I agree with this:

https://www.npr.org/2019/05/20/724884348/snl-musical-guests-ranked-from-no-1-to-greta-van-fleet

Quote :
"Imagine a stage full of hip-hop, R&B and pop heavy hitters — the sort of people you might expect to headline SNL on any given week. Some of them have done just that this season (Meek Mill, Lil Wayne) or last season (SZA) or the season before that (Big Sean), while others could sell out stadiums in their own right. John Legend! J Balvin! All paying tribute to the late lamented Nipsey Hussle! What more do you need?

If you answered, "A man shouting non sequiturs, drowning out every one of those talented artists as they tried to do their thing," then we've got some excellent news for you. DJ Khaled is the most successful Guy Who Screams His Own Name While Other People Perform in the business, and he brought his screaming-his-own-name A game for SNL's season finale. Imagine a medley of performers and songs you're interested in hearing, except that medley is punctuated every few seconds by an airhorn, and that airhorn is a man, and that man is shouting, "SING IT, GIRL!" at SZA while she's already attempting to sing. You know who's really great at singing? SZA. You know who does not need to be heard yelling, "SING IT, GIRL!" at SZA as she sings? Three guesses, and if you somehow guess wrong the first time, I will appear in the clouds overhead like Mufasa in The Lion King and bellow "ANOTHER ONE!" at you, because that's how the universe works.

Finally, neither of these facts is DJ Khaled's fault, but let's just put them out there anyway. Carly Rae Jepsen released a new album precisely one day prior to this performance. Four weeks earlier, Lizzo released Cuz I Love You. We could have had Carly Rae Jepsen or Lizzo — or even both at the same time. It was the season finale! Anything seemed possible! (This is as good a time as any for a side note: In 21 episodes, five women got headlining slots as musical guests this season, and one of them was Miley Cyrus, who shared her billing with Mark Ronson. Come on.)"

I assume he at least made the beats for the songs that other artists sang/rapped on SNL? He's like a combination of Funk Flex, DJ Clue and Puffy, but a bit more annoying.
