Video: Check out Charles Barkley on Saturday Night Live

Jan 9, 2012, 8:36 AM EDT

In case you have a life and were out Saturday night (and forgot to set your DVR), Charles Barkley was at 30 Rock hosting Saturday Night Live. Since you were out having fun, we thought you should see the highlights, like him making fun of Shaq above. Although, best part of that skit is Bill Hader as Ernie Johnson.

Third time as host for Barkley, and he wasn’t bad. Below is Barkley’s opening monologue and a skit, “White People Problems.”

    Okay. Charles was good. And White People Problems was funny. But, three weeks ago on the Bill Simmons podcast, Bill and Adam Carolla were going on a rant about “white people problems”.

    Simmons and Adam were talking about “W.P.P.s” like when the new high-def big screen that you just got at Best Buy isn’t working right. Or when the automating windows in your car aren’t working right. And others. They were laughing at the ridiculousness of white people problems. It was great.

    Simmons has guys like Seth Myers on the podcast all the time, Bill Hader and Jason Sudekis too. They had to have heard the podcast.

    And the dig at the Heat? Wow! Now that was some cutting edge stuff. I haven’t herad any jokes about that press conference from 18 months ago. Has anyone else? That skit really opened up my eyes in 2012 about a meaningless over-the-top from the summer of 2010. That pre-season celebration really was crazy wasn’t it? My eyes are watering I’m laughing so hard.
