Michael Phelps on Saturday Night Live
Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps hosted “Saturday Night Live” during the weekend. He was featured in various comedy skits, and I just have one thing to say—Michael needs to stick to swimming.
The skits weren’t very funny whatsoever, but I don’t know if Phelps is to blame or should we blame the writers. During some of the scenes it sounded like he was reading off of a teleprompter word for word, which he probably was.
On the other hand, it probably was good for NBC to put Phelps on the show despite his lackluster acting skills. Phelps is popular sports figures in the country especially after the Olympics, and I’m a lot of people watched the show that night which translates into big ratings.
The highlight of the show was the performances of the current king of rap Lil Wayne. He performed his hits “Lollipop” and “Get Money.”
Another notable moment was the opening of the show when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler portrayed Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton during a press conference. Tina Fey’s portrayal of Sarah Palin was right on.
Barack Obama was supposed to make an appearance on the show, but he canceled because of Hurricane Ike.
Michael Phelps’ mother and William Shatner made a brief appearance on the show. I guess if Obama can’t make it on the show, the next best thing is to have Phelps’ mother and William Shatner….not really
