Louis CK's 'SNL' Emmy Nomination No joke: The late-night comedy show "Saturday Night Live" collected a load of just-announced Emmy nominations. (You can watch the performances on Yahoo Screen's <a class="" href="https://screen.yahoo.com/emmy-nominated-snl-performances/">playlist</a>.) For his second time as host, Louis CK got laughs — and an Emmy nod for his March performance. The comedian's opening monologue is made up entirely of his standup routine. The "Louie" star delivered incisive commentary on some of his favorite topics. He questioned his atheist friends who say there is no God. "Did you look everywhere? Did you check the downstairs bathroom? How can you know?" The father of two girls shared his thoughts on parenthood. "There is no more joyful feeling in the human experience than when a child's play is over … they worked really hard and it didn't make it good," he joked. And he riffed about men versus women: "I don't think women are better than men. But I do think men are worse than women." The monologue received raves on the Web. "One of the best parts about Louis CK hosting "Saturday Night Live" is the nearly 10 minutes of new standup we get to see during his opening monologue," the Huffington Post <a class="" href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/29/louis-ck-snl-monologue_n_5057239.html">wrote</a>. "Louis CK stuck with his specialty shtick during his 'Saturday Night Live' opening monologue.
