SNL Statistics - 1/17/09 (How Bobby Moynihan did)

Bobby Moynihan got only 4 this week. Nothing super memorable.

Rosario Dawson 8
Fred Armisen 7
Abby Elliott 2
Will Forte 5
Bill Hader 4
Darrell Hammond 2
Seth Meyers 1
Bobby Moynihan 4
Paula Pell 1
Andy Samberg 4
Jason Sudeikis 6
Kenan Thompson 5
Michaela Watkins 2
Kristen Wiig 6
Casey Wilson 2

1st Place with 7 skits (MVP Award): Fred Armisen

2nd Place with 6 skits (Job Security Award): Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig

3rd Place with 5 skits (Team Player Award): Will Forte and Kenan Thompson

4th Place with 4 skits (Well Rounded Award): Bill Hader, Bobby Moynihan, & Andy Samberg

5th Place with 2 Skits (Time to Worry Award): Abby Elliott, Darrell Hammond, Michaela Watkins, and Casey Wilson

Also: Seth Meyers has 1 because he's resigned to Head Writer and Weekend Update Anchor. Paula Pell is a writer (I think). I wonder if they're bringing her on as a player?

Overall: Bobby Moynihan and Andy Samberg gave a strong showing. Andy's Larry the Goose character got awfully close to Adam Sandler genius territory. =^)
Michaela slipped a little, but I wouldn't worry yet unless it happens every week. Casey needs to pull out something funny soon, or she should start worrying, especially if SNL continues to line up more women. Abby also hasn't broken out yet, so she better think about doing that soon. Michaela and Bobby already have broken out, so she and Casey are behind the curve if they want to stay active.
Darrell has been placed as a hired gun, where they only bust him out when the situation calls for it (thus only 2). That said, his value isn't as prevelant as it was in the past. Hilary is still around in the political scene, but that's not enough of a reason to keep Darrell (and his Bill Clinton) around forever.

I still think Will Forte and Kenan Thompson are at a higher risk (as are Casey and Abby because they haven't broken out, and Darrell because he can't stay forever). Will and Kenan are best served as the "straight guy," which is why they get used a lot. Will still has his hilarious songs and dances, and Kenan can get a few laughs with his smile. But they just aren't as funny as the rest. As Finnesse Mitchell implied in an interview, there's a lot of collaboration, but there's also a lot of competition to reinvent yourself constantly. Will, Kenan, and Darrell aren't reinventing themselves (although Will is getting close with his silly songs). Also, Casey and Abby haven't started inventing themselves yet. Their job security is the fact that they are women right now.

That puts Fred, Jason, and Kristen at the top as the team players and most valuable, with Bill, Andy, Bobby (and I believe Michaela, Seth, and Darrell) as the secret weapons that really do the biggest laughs when they're set up correctly.

Thoughts? Enjoy!

Bobby Moynihan - Is a Spanish policeman, Miguel (La Policia Mexicana)

La Policia Mexicana

You have the right to remain silencio.

Rosario Dawson ... Isabella Lopez, Carmen
Fred Armisen ... Carloz Ruiz
Bill Hader ... Roberto Gonzales, El Jefe
Bobby Moynihan ... Miguel
Paula Pell ... Announcer (voice)

I didn't find this all that funny. Did you?

Bobby Moynihan - Didn't do it (Gilly)


Every class has a special student.

Rosario Dawson ... Cindy
Will Forte ... Mr. Dillon
Bobby Moynihan ... Liam
Kenan Thompson ... Sam Jeffers
Kristen Wiig ... Gilly
Casey Wilson ... Teacher

Kristen Wiig pulls out another classic character. Go Kristen!!! Kristen, you should write more dual characters that you can dow with other cast members (like your A-holes characters).

The pencils bit was too disturbing.

Good to know Bobby didn't do it. What do you think of his character?

Bobby Moynihan - Is a farmer (Burger King commercial)

Commercial: Burger King / Whopper Virgins

Neil Patrick Harris ... Interviewer
Fred Armisen ... Farmer
Bobby Moynihan ... Farmer
Michaela Watkins ... Farmer
Kristen Wiig ... Translator

Bobby Moynihan busts out his farmer in this Burger King commercial parody. I think the translator bit is funny.

Eh, it was okay. Bobby was a little funny, but Fred and Michaela weren't so much.

Bobby Moynihan - Is the tuba player for the Doogie Hoswer theme song

Updating with the video

SNL Digital Short: The Doogie Howser Theme

Neil Patrick Harris and the SNL Orchestra present...

Neil Patrick Harris. Himself
Fred Armisen ... Keyboard player

Darrell Hammond ... Trumpeter
Bobby Moynihan ... Tuba player
Andy Samberg ... Drum pad player

Kenan Thompson ... Harpist
Michaela Watkins ... Violinist
Kristen Wiig ... Guitarist

With all the Doogie skit possibilities, not sure why they did one on the theme song. Still funny though. Go Bobby!

Neil Patrick Harris ... David Frost
Fred Armisen ... Paul Lynde
Bill Hader ... David Bowie
Darrell Hammond ... Richard Nixon
Bobby Moynihan ... David Crosby
Jason Sudeikis ... Attorney
Kenan Thompson ... Fred Berry

Eh. Not so good. The little dance was funny though. Thankfully they didn't let it drag on.

Bobby Moynihan - Is Turtle from Entourage (Neil Patrick Harris monologue)


Neil Patrick Harris opens the show.

Neil Patrick Harris
Fred Armisen ... An other guy (audience member)
Bill Hader ... An other guy (audience member)
Bobby Moynihan ... Turtle (audience member)
Andy Samberg ... Mark Wahlberg

Neil masterfully reminds everyone that he was Doogie Howser, and really makes it memorable that he's on "How I Met Your Mother." Nice job!

Hahahaha!!! Andy Samberg pulls out his Mark Wahlberg! Neil shows great comedic timing.

Here's a non-gay Bobby. Not quite as funny, but Bobby also does "dumb" really well!

SNL Statistics 1/10/09 - Bobby Moynihan in 5 skits

Bobby's skits:

1. Monologue (as Turtle)
2. Save Broadway (as Magical Mr. Mestophiles, the Cat)
3. Digital Short: Doogie Howser Theme Song (tuba player)
4. Frost/Other People (as David Crosby)
5. Burger King Commercial (as a farmer)

Total Skits:

Neil Patrick Harris - 9
Taylor Swift - 3
Liza Minnelli - 1

Fred Armisen - 6
Abby Elliott - 4
Will Forte - 6
Bill Hader - 6
Darrell Hammond - 4
Seth Meyers - 1
Bobby Moynihan - 5
Andy Samberg - 4
Jason Sudeikis - 5
Kenan Thompson - 7
Michaela Watkins - 5
Kristen Wiig - 7
Casey Wilson - 3

Andy Samberg was in 4 skits tonight. Darrell Hammond was in more than usual (he's usually just busting out the impressions in 1-3 skits). Bobby Moynihan is doing well and a bit above average (at 5). Abby's starting to break out tonight with 4, she led her first skit (Rachel Maddow Show), and she got to say "Live from..." for the first time. Michaela's breaking out with 5 as well. They needed women, and Michaela is proving to have the best comic timing of the three new ladies.


1. Job Security goes to...
Kenan Thompson - 7
Kristen Wiig - 7

2. Team Player goes to...
Fred Armisen - 6
Will Forte - 6
Bill Hader - 6

3. Well Rounded goes to...
Bobby Moynihan - 5
Jason Sudeikis - 5
Michaela Watkins - 5

4. Honorable Mentions goes to...
Abby Elliott - 4
Darrell Hammond - 4
Andy Samberg - 4

5. Skating By goes to...
Casey Wilson - 3

There are no "On Thin Ice" awards (2) or "In Big Trouble" awards (1) this week. Seth only does Weekend Update, so I don't think he's in danger of losing his job unless he wants to leave. And I don't think he has any reason to leave.

Predictions for next season: Amy Poehler already left mid this season, so she'll remain gone.

1. They let Will Forte go (he's one of the longest-running, which means he's going to go soon). Or they let Darrell Hammond go (he's broken records, he can't stay on forever, and they don't need him now that Hilary isn't in the spotlight as much).

2. Michaela steps up to the Weekend Update anchor spot to accompany Seth Meyers.

3. Michaela, Bobby Moynihan, and Casey Wilson all become regular players.

4. They keep Abby as a featured player, and they add another one or two more new guys as featured players.

What do you think?

If Casey replaced Maya and Michaela replaced Amy, then who are Abby and Bobby replacing? That's why I think they lose one guy (my guess is Will Forte or Darrell Hammond), and they keep Abby as a featured player, to see if she gets funnier.

Who do you think is going to leave next?

Darrell Hammond has been on for 14 years now (wow; he's done 103 impressions).

Seth Meyers has had 8 years (but I don't think he wants to leave Weekend Update, and I don't think they want to lose him yet).

Will Forte has been on for 7 years.

Fred Armisen has had 7 years. They still rely on him, and he's still the only Obama impression they have.

Kenan Thompson has had 6 years. He's the only black person. (That might sound racist, but historically, SNL has usually had a black person, including Garette, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and more.)

Jason Sudeikis has had 6 seasons, but I think they rely on him a lot.

Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, and Kristen Wiig have had 4 years. They rely on all three of them way too much to drop any of them (although Andy isn't in as many skits, his are arguably the most popular). Plus they're all very popular.

And of course, Bobby Moynihan is pure awesome. So I think/hope he'll be a regular player next year!

Bobby Moynihan - Is Magical Mr. Mestophiles from Cats (Save Broadway)

Save Broadway

The show must go on...

Neil Patrick Harris. Mark from Rent
Taylor Swift ... Annie
Fred Armisen ... Blue Man
Abby Elliott ... Peppeteer
Will Forte ... Blue Man
Bill Hader ... Music Man
Darrell Hammond ... Dude from Stomp
Bobby Moynihan ... Magical Mr. Mestophiles (from Cats)
Andy Samberg ... Blue Man
Jason Sudeikis ... Phantom
Kenan Thompson ... Miss Siagon writer
Michaela Watkins ... Wicked Witch (from Wicked)
Kristen Wiig ... Chicago performer
Casey Wilson ... Chicago performer

This is my favorite skit of the show. Bobby Moynihan is hilarious, as well as Bill Hader, and the Blue Man Group (Andy, Fred, and Will).

Bobby shows how he loves the bizarre characters and whips his tail around.

This is another Bobby character with his gay voice, so it only helps prove a case for the question...

Does Bobby Moynihan have any non-gay characters?

Time will tell.

Bobby Moynihan does a short hand interview with me answering questions I composed of advice on performing, influences and more. Sorry for my voice, it was freezing and loud outside with the traffic and other fans around.
