Eddie Murphy's Return To 'SNL' – HUGE Ratings, That Major Comedy Legend Link Up, Revival Of Buckwheat & Gumby, & Bill Cosby Was PISSED

​ ​ ​ ​

 

Half of Netflix's budget - as Dave Chappelle so hilariously stated - took the stage Saturday night alongside their fellow king of comedy Eddie Murphy before getting into the most anticipated (and blackest) episode of the season. 

 

Watch Eddie rehash his famous characters and piss off Bill Cosby in the process...

 

Eddie Murphy didn't come back to "SNL" for the first time in almost 35 years empty handed.  He brought the homies Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Tracey Morgan along (and cast member Kenan Thompson) to give him some foolish skit suggestions.  Eddie skipped out on their help, but it was still the blackest episode we've ever seen.

 

The Dolemite star rehashed his old acts - with a 2019 twist - that made him the famous "SNL" star that he is - Buckwheat, Mr. Robinson, Gumby, Velvet Jones and more. Kanye & Kim West and more were in the audience for the big night too.

 

These Holiday skits though - Ha!

 

Most people were raving about it all throughout the weekend.  But there was one person who wasn't raving - Bill Cosby.  During Eddie's monologue, he joked "Who's America's Daddy now?" He never thought he'd be back on SNL's stage, and def never thought Bill Cosby would be in somebody's jail.

Bill must have gotten a tv pass for the night.

Bill Cosby’s Publicist, Andrew Wyatt, responds to Eddie Murphy’s SNL Monologue: “Mr. Cosby became the first Black to win an Emmy for his role in I Spy and Mr. Cosby broke color barriers in the Entertainment Industry, so that Blacks like Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappell, Kevin Hart and et al., could have an opportunity to showcase their talents for many generations to come. It is sad that Mr. Murphy would take this glorious moment of returning to SNL and make disparaging remarks against Mr. Cosby. One would think that Mr. Murphy was given his freedom to leave the plantation, so that he could make his own decisions; but he decided to sell himself back to being a Hollywood Slave. Stepin Fetchit plus cooning equals the destruction of Black Men in Hollywood. Remember, Mr. Murphy, that Bill Cosby became legendary because he used comedy to humanize all races, religions and genders; but your attacking Mr. Cosby helps you embark on just becoming click bait. Hopefully, you will be amenable to having a meeting of the minds conversation, in order to discuss how we can use our collective platforms to enhance Black people rather than bringing all of us down together.” #NotFunnySNL #SNL #FarFromFinished #FreeBillCosby #BillCosby

Oh, he's real mad. Eddie remains unbothered though. Especially because the ratings are in - and Eddie gave the show its biggest ratings in 2.5 years with 9.9 million viewers. Now that's how you do a season finale.  Sheesh.
