Precious star Gabourey Sidibe was all smiles and as she performed on SNL, reminding everyone she is nothing like the character that made her famous. The young star was sassy on the show but she also had her fair share of flubs, messing up lines in just about every skit.
The episode, which also featured musical guest MGMT, delivered a 4.7/12 household rating/share in metered-market households. In the 25 markets with local people meters, Saturday Night Live averaged a 2.7/11 in adults 18-49 and was the night’s #1 telecast, including primetime. That’s about 10% less than last week’s episode hosted by Ryan Phillippe with musical guest Ke$ha, which was about 10% less than the Tina Fey hosted episode the prior week.
The one sketch that did have people talking, some loving it, most hating it, was a digital short with Andy Samberg in which he and Gabourey, dressed as Jedis, spit cherries into each others’ mouths. At the end, the last cherry starts singing, it was weird and more in a gross way then a fun way. Check out Cherry Battle below and let us know what you think.
