NBC’s Saturday Night Live is back after two weeks with Iggy Azalea as Musical Guest and Jim Carrey as Host. Although he missed the cold intro, Q.V. Hough (@quinnhough) will be live-blogging the action!
10:36 CST Red-horned Elvis! Yes. This should be good.
10:37 CST Uh-oh, “Helvis?” The Halloween episode will either be brilliant or devastatingly brutal.
10:38 CST Carrey channeling Andy Kaufman right now and I’m loving it.
10:40 CST College students be like, “HUH?!”
10:41 CST Oh, hell yes. “Matthew McConaughey for Lincoln.” Carrey’s facial expression is better than the actual impression.

10: 45 CST “Carrey Family Reunion” – not sure about the female comedian opening this skit. Same schtick. Ok, here’s Taran Killam with an outstanding impression. Great voice!
10:48 CST Ok, so now it’s just a bad party featuring Jim Carrey jokes.
10:49 CST Brutal “Cable Guy” impression from Jay Pharaoh. He sounded like…well, it wasn’t good.
10:40 CST Will it be throwback comedy hour or will Jim Carry produce some fresh laughs?
10:51 CST More McConaughey skits? Ehh…not feeling it. Everybody does a McConaughey impression and Carrey’s is just so-so.
10:52 CST Chris Rock and Prince next week?! Aww shit. Yes. That’s what I’m talking about.
@boxcar45 It was basically, like, “most people have no idea who Jim Carrey is now, so let’s just badly impersonate all his characters.”

10:56 CST Hey, it’s Pete Davidson, the apparent heir to the SNL Throne. He’s had a few moments this season, but nothing special.
10:57 CST So, is this “Paul and Phil” skit a bit similar to “The DeMarco Brothers” skit featuring Jimmy Fallon and Chris Parnell?
11:00 CST 30 minutes and three short McConaughey skits. C’mon SNL, writers. .

11:00 CST So, Izzy Agalea sings that song? Still not sure what she does.
11:03 CST I hate to be “that guy”about SNL lip-sync performances, but isn’t this an obvious recording of a live vocal?
11:05 CST Well, she had her chance.
11:05 CST Rita Ora with some fresh vocals?
11:06 CST Lip synching. Same ol’ strange pop dancers. How about some rock?
Iggy Azalea on #SNL is even worse than I could have predicted.

11:09 CST Allison Williams from HBO’s Girls on an NBC Peter Pan special? I wonder how that happened?! (snicker)
11:10 CST Weekend Update: Yeah, New York City has ALL the diseases. Must have been written by a Brooklyn hipster.
11:11 CST Oh, you crazy, SNL! Black people, Halloween and Ebola jokes? Well done! :/
11:12 CST Ah, a comedy bit on Selfie and A to Z. I’m totally not going to take a piss right now.
11:13 CST Why isn’t Jim Carrey taking over Weekend Update?
11:16 CST Brett Favre man-to-man penis joke because he often did that?
11:16 CST A “Yer Momma” joke — the writing keeps getting better.
11:18 CST Well, the show is halfway over and I’m not feeling this, despite being a life-long follower of Saturday Night Live since the late 80s. Maybe next week, SNL? Yikes.
11:20 CST Adios!
