Eddie One Night

It aired last night; did you watch? If so what did you think of it all?

For the rest of us who didn't watch, it'll be re-broadcast at least twice - first tonight, at 12am, and on Wednesday, November 21, at 11pm.

But if you just can't wait until those days and times, or you don't have DVR, maybe these 12 clips will keep you satiated in the meantime.

Eddie Murphy: One Night Only saw folks like Chris RockSamuel L. JacksonTracy Morgan, Arsenio HallBrett Ratner, Charlie MurphyJeffrey KatzenbergMartin Lawrence, Jamie FoxxAdam SandlerTyler Perry, and Keenen Ivory Wayans and others, all celebrating the legend live, with The Roots as house band throughout the evening.

The special marked 30 years since the release of Eddie's groundbreaking stand-up concert film Delirious, and the classic film 48 Hrs., both which featured breakout performances that made him one of the world's superstars.

    Eddie seems heavily medicated.

    Is there a way to find this online in its entirety?

    I enjoyed it, especially the Stevie Wonder duet, the standing ovation encouraged by Charlie Murphy, and Chris Rock's bits.

    Eddie explained it best when comparing it too hearing someone sing "Happy Birthday" to you. Where do you look, what do you do? Do you keep chanting thank you or smile through it. A 2 hour tribute for anyone can be awkward , but the personal stories and look back on so much great work was refreshing and deserved. Made me want to go watch Eddie Murphy work immediately.

    The show was terrbile. Turned after 30 minutes. Felt bad for everyone involved and watching.

    I agree. It all felt forced. I wonder how Murphy must've felt being 'honored' to play a jive-talking donkey or Norbit. Throughout the evening, there were moments where I couldn't tell if the presenters were giving back-handed compliments or executing failed attempts at humor. When Arsenio asked him to tap dance, I was done.

    He seemed uncomfortable most of the night. At the end when he spoke he referred to himself as, "a very bitter man." The audience laughed it off. But I think he was dead serious. Eddie has not been "Eddie Murphy" in quite a while. And that's okay. People change. He just seems to be very aloof these days. It's too bad. As someone who was a child of the 80's I remember Eddie's prime well. Eddie at his peak blows away any comedian who came after him. I wish he could get that mojo back.

    rocket, I couldn't agree more with you...

    It felt strange. I love Eddie Murphy but the evening felt unnecessary. The begging of his career was historic and he made amazing movies but recently his movies have been horrible. He doesn't really need the money so he should be making movies that really mean something. He was sitting with a women he is just "dating" not even a fiance or he's wife.....he just seems very shallow nowadays. I have no interest in him now.
