It's a good thing Cuomo has a sense of humor because the cast of Saturday Night Live, along with guest host Matt Damon, spent an entire sketch debating the merits of Weezer old versus new. Damon and Leslie Jones, playing neighbors enjoying a holiday meal together, nearly come to blows over when or if the band took a turn for the worse.
Weezer - SNL youtu.be
At least one person found the sketch hysterical. Front man Cuomo tweeted his enthusiastic love for the skit.
