Jon Hamm’s Monologue

…..Jon Hamm

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen — Jon Hamm!

Jon Hamm: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you very much! Thank you very much! Aw! It is — it is — it is GREAT to be here hosting “Saturday Night Live”! Uh — I have had — I have had a really fun year starring in the critically-acclaimed AMC series, “Mad Men”. [ the audience cheers ] Uh — you know, uh, when I talk to people about “Mad Men”, they always ask me the same questions: “What is ‘Mad Men’?”, “Is that a television show?”, “What is AMC?”, “What number’s that on my cable box?” And “Are you sure you don’t mean A&E?” Not everyone has discovered our show yet.

Uh, so, tonight, in hopes of boosting our ratings, I’d like to tell you what you’ll see if you tune in. “Mad Men” is a… measured period piece, set in the early 1960s, that explores the social mores of advertising excutives who, uh — [ knowing he’s lost the audience ] well, who like to dance! [ he chuckles ] With the stars! It’s a cut-throat elimination celebrity dancing show! And it’s on AMC, ten p.m., on Sunday! Uh — the show stars me… uhhhh, everyone from “C.S.I.”… all of the Phillies, and the Rays… Oh! We also make over homes, but in an extreme way! So don’t miss next week’s episode, it’s — it’s the season finale! And I don’t want to give anything away, but, uh — John McCain and Barack Obama show up… and smoke REAL weed! I can’t believe they agreed to do it, but they did, and it’s on “Mad Men”, ten p.m., Sunday, AMC. It’s — it’s — it’s pretty late in the episode, you guys, it’s — it’s pretty late in the episode, so watch the WHOLE thing! McCain FREAKS out! It’s crazy! Sarah Palin has to talk him down — she’s there, too!

It’s insane! It’s a great show. Uh, and we have a great show tonight — Coldplay is here. So stick around, we will be right back!
