Tiffany Haddish Has Energy and Confidence to Spare on 'Saturday Night Live'

Tiffany Haddish Pokes Fun at Taylor Swift's Reputation in Their SNL Promos Taylor Swift and Tiffany Haddish Rock Out in 'Saturday Night Live' Promo -- Watch

Haddish opened with an hilarious monologue, but the lack of great comedy writing created a lackluster show. "Listen. Okay? If you got your thing-thing out and she's got all her clothes on, you're wrong". "I want to say thank you to anyone who paid their taxes between 1990 and 1999", she said, "because if you didn't pay your taxes, I wouldn't be standing here today". Living in group homes with mostly black and Hispanic kids wasn't an easy thing come 11:30 on Saturday nights, she said. "I got stabbed twice, in a bunk bud". Her "Tiff Tip" to men: "If you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on YOU'RE WRONG".

In adults 18-49, possibly boosted by the appearance of pop star Tyler Swift who performed songs from her new album, SNL posted a 1.9 rating in the markets with local people meters, up a tenth from last week. She spoke about Kevin Hart being impressed that she visited China, Thailand, Japan, Florida, San Francisco, and Los Angeles in the same day. "Especially ones that she's not allowed to push". But she broke the news to Hart and joked that she was wearing the same outfit during different occasions.

USA airstrike kills 'several' al-Shabab militants in Somalia "abcnews"
After years of interim authority, an internationally backed federal government was installed in 2012. U.S. forces have conducted well over a dozen airstrikes targeting al Shabab this year since U.S.

As always, the rest of the show was hit and miss, including the host's sketches. In one skit, about a Mortal Combat-like video game, "Death Fight 12", Haddish plays Boo Boo Jeffries, a character whose special moves include shouting "Rihanna" and "Beyoncé" repeatedly at her enemies.

And then there were some later-in-the-show fillers with, as usual, more quirk than laughs.
