SNL's 'Maine Justice' Actually About New Orleans (VIDEO)


Once again, Saturday Night Live went down to New Orleans over the weekend. Only this time, it was by way of Maine. Hitting the fine line between our love of reality shows previously documented in City Court with Aaron Neville and love of talking a lot of stuff documented in Bill Hader's turn as James Carville, SNL staged an episode of reality show Maine Justice. Click through to view:

 

Complete with a judge (Jason Sudekis) and bailiff (Jamie Foxx) knee deep in talk about gators, eating and in an unusual piece of perfect local timing, high water bills. As entertaining as they were, the sketch appeared to turn thematically on the opening statement of the defendant, "What the hell is going on?"

 

 

Watch the second installment of Maine Justice, featuring Justin Timberlake, here.
