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.
