For Ronda Rousey’s monologue, they made it like a UFC match with announcers and a coach. This worked perfectly for her.
Next up was a parody of the screen actors guild only nominating white actors when there were black actors in more prominent roles for each movie. The best part of it was the similarity between the fake movies and the ones actually nominated this year.
Their digital short was ‘Love Struck’, where a bunch of mean girls bully Rousey until she beats them up.
Then they did a Bachelor parody called Bland Dan, which was the best take on how boring Bachelors are and how idiotic the women are made to sound. It was perfect.
Following Weekend Update was aa sketch where Pete Davidson was a high school student whose female teachers had a threesome with him. They were at trial where he was clearly ecstatic about what had happened. Overall a great sketch, with Davidson doing a great job.
Up next was a superhero sketch where each superhero had to introduce themselves before any of them could help stop the villain.
The second digital short was a song where two guys rapped about how big their dicks are and one of them rapped about how he’d go down on you but kept his pants on.
Then they did a town hall which was relatively boring and basic.
They had one where two of Rousey’s coworkers had clearly never been to a party before. It was okay. I liked the premise of it but it felt a little flat.
Then they replayed the commercial parody for the dating app Settl.
Overall a very mediocre episode.
Tune in February 6th for host Larry David and musical guest The 1975.
