Chris Farley / The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
October 25, 1997


I really liked seeing Farley back on "SNL." I loved him so much.

 

[OPENING] Farley gets permission to host

This sketch was fairly funny, especially with Tim Meadows vouching for Chris. I liked when Chris tried to break the desk, and Lorne was like, "That's not a breakaway."

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

[MONOLOGUE] Chris Farley

This was pretty funny, especially with Chris Rock making fun of Tim for still sticking around on the show after 8 years (is he ever going to leave?). Chris Farley making out with Ana was great.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

[COMMERCIAL] Yum Bubble Genital Herpes Gum

Hilarious. Stupid, but I couldn't stop laughing.

Rating: 9 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Morning Latte

I thought this skit was just retarded until Chris saved it by yelling the obscenities at the host.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Mary Katherine Gallagher

This was very funny. I don't like the character, but this was a good one. Mary trying to jump on the stud, and then at the end with Farley and Molly just jumping around and falling through tables was great!

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

 

[COMMERCIAL] Martha Stewart: Living promo

This was an average sketch.

Rating: 6 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Matt Foley: Motivational Speaker

I love Matt Foley, although this skit was a bit weak, it was still good just because Farley can pull it off so well.

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Norm MacDonald

As always, Norm was awesome and I love him.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

WHO CARES!!!!!

 

[SKETCH] Goth Talk

I love these skits ... especially how the older brother makes fun of his weirdo brother. This one was lacking though.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

[THE LOST DEEP THOUGHTS] by Jack Handey

Missed it.

 

[SKETCH] The Sally Show

This was funny, I liked it when Farley would chew on her shoe and wouldn't stop. (By the way, how much weight has Farley gained? He is way bigger now.)

Rating: 7.5 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Hank Williams Jr. records Monday Night Football song

This was a pretty funny skit. I liked how Farley would guzzle the Jack D and then say this is one of my rowdy friends, I also liked how he made them call him Bo Sevis. The ending sucked.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] The Super Fans ... where are they now?

I love these guys. I like how it showed how they moved apart: some of them going to New Orleans, Farley thinking it was still 1986, and the George Wendt character who tried not to move much off the line, as not to show disrespect to either da Bears or Ditka. The nacho cheese bit was hilarious

Rating: 9.5 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] El Nino fights on The Weather Channel

I liked how they made fun of both El Nino and the way all the pro wrestlers are when they act all tough. Dumb ending, but okay in general.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

OVERALL:

The best show of the year, although I thought that they could of used Farley in more of the new skits to add a new twist rather than making up new ones or using his old ones.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10
