SNL Premiere More Notable for What Megan Fox Didn't Say Than What Jenny Slate Did


Beginner's luck: According to NBC, Saturday Night Live newcomer Jenny Slate won't be fired or even have to wear a scarlet "F" on her mangy, featured player forehead for her now-notorious accidental swear word during Saturday's premiere episode. Slate, who uttered "f*ckin" when meaning to say "freakin" during a sketch called "Biker Chick Chat," committed the puritanical offense well after primetime, meaning SNL is not likely to garner fines from the Federal Communications Commission. In fact, host Megan Fox is the one who should be in trouble, more for what she didn't say than what Slate did. See her faux pas (and video of Slate's slip of the tongue) after the jump.

Fox, the consummately chatty bon vivant, never mentioned her new film Jennifer's Body during her opening monologue -- a three-minute stretch where stars are practically required to tout whatever current film got them booked on the show. Sure, the film sank at the box office, but that doesn't seem like justification to ignore the film entirely. Based on the amount of mentions per scene, an innocent, rock-dwelling civilian might have guessed instead that she was promoting her new flick Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. These Hitler youth are unscrupulous.

Slate's swear:

Fox's monologue (disclaimer: Hulu's been temperamental today):


  • Colander says:

    I did notice this, and I wondered how she would self-deprecatingly handle talking about JB, but I guess she figured we knew all we needed to about it.

  • SunnydaZe says:

    This reminds me of when Wayne accidentally called Garth, "One stupid Mutherf**ker." NOT!

  • el smrtmnky says:

    i also love that the SNL writers were kind enough to have Fox play a hooker not once but twice.

  • daveed says:

    I bet by week's end the YouTube vid of Slate's f-bomb will have more views than the actual SNL episode.

  • The Winchester says:

    I liked how there was barely a courtesy applause when she mentioned the Transformers movies. Biggest laugh of the night.
