I liked the cold opening.

Lots of Chris Kattan skits last night, which were unfunny.

Brian Fellow was funny. That was probably the last Brian Fellow skit since Tracy's leaving.

Live with Regis and Kelly was funny thanks to Amy's hilarious Kelly Ripa imitation.

I thought that the Veggie Tales TV Funhouse was weird. Last night's was weirder, still very funny though, particularly the Wonder Twins homage and the Rocks Commercial.

Of course, we couldn't go one show without Fallon and Sanz cracking up once again.

The porn producers skit was oddly funny. I liked the part where they made fun of all the different titles.

Overall, another decent SNL. Next week, Dan Aykroyd hosts, so that should be a good way to end the season.

The show started good and went downhill very fast. I loved the American Idol and Brian Fellow skits. However aside from the TV funhouse skit, I didn't laugh again. I get so tired of watching Jimmy and Horatio crack up at their own stuff. I think that skit MAY have been funny, but Jimmy was bound and determined to wreck it.

I had heard about Chris Kattan leaving, but Tracy Morgan, too? I hope there are extra doses of Chris and Tracy (Brian Fellow, Astronaut Jones, Mango, the skit with Chris as the rednecked mullet guy in his underwear with the 911 calls and Mr. Peepers) next week.

Near the end of the Regis & Kelly skit, Amy had Darrell Hammond laughing with the literal Regis bashing, and he tried so hard to hide it, but it made it even funnier. I used to think the same thing when Jimmy & Horatio would do that, but now it's just getting annoying. By the end of the skit, I had no idea what either was saying just because they were laughing too hard and didn't even care.

Up until last night, I hadn't watched the current seasons of SNL for quite some time (I tend to catch a rerun here or there on Comedy Central or E!), but one thing I do remember seeing was Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sanz laughing at themselves. I'd seen it a couple times, and the first time I thought it was one of those "Uh oh, it's live TV folks!" moments. Then it kept happening over and over. Then, last night, I tune in again, and there they are again, not being able to contain themselves. What the hell? I can understand that they work on a live comedy show, and the work environment probably reflects that, but come on. A lot of people have said a lot of funny stuff on this show, and very rarely have they broken out in hysterics. I'm wondering if Lorne is just telling them to go out there and crack each other up. "Hey guys, the crowd loves it when you do that laughing thing. Keep it up!" Idiots.

Sorry about the rant. I'm not sure why that bothered me last night.

Anyone else kinda bummed they didn't follow up on the Wake-Up Wakefield thing a couple weeks back with Megan (Maya Rudolph) and her unhealthy obsession with Adrien Brody? I mean c'mon, last night was BEGGING for a Wake-Up Wakefield skit.

Overall, it was ok. The show had some really funny moments and some that kinda made me bored. But I loved the American Idol spoof. Tracy's Ruben Studdard impression just cracked me up. He didn't even have to say anything. The whole Saturday TV Funhouse thing this week was just awesome as well.

I didn't know about Tracy leaving though I knew about Kattan. Having both of them leave after this season is gonna be weird. Tracy Morgan has been one of my favorite SNL cast members in the last few seasons and Kattan's done some great stuff as well.

I'm looking forward to the season finale next week with Dan Aykroyd. That should be fun.

My wife and I were watching ONLY to see the Wake Up Wakefield w/ Adrian Brody and "The Future Mrs. Ade-ree-an Brohh-day!" - talk about missing a golden opportunity.

I'm probably in the distinct minority on this, but I think most of the Jimmy Fallon/Horatio Sanz sketches wouldn't be as funny if they *didn't* break each other up so much. The Elton John thing last night was pretty stupid, but the two of them actually made it work.

It's kind of reminiscent of the Harvey Korman/Tim Conway stuff on the old Carol Burnett Show.

This show went down the crapper fast once Tim Meadows and Will Ferrell left.

I enjoyed the beginning of the show, and am now excited to hear that Chris Kattan is leaving. In (what? five?) years, he has never once made me laugh. If I want to see a short spaz mugging and going "bleah!" there are always Jerry Lewis films... or old Martin Short SNL skits. I hate both those guys, but Kattan makes them seem like comic geniuses.

I will really miss Tracy Morgan, though. That guy has GREAT facial expressions, and he does a lot of wonderful subtle stuff.

The only things Kattan has done remotely funny in the last few years are Gay Hitler and Gollum. I don't care for his other characters.

The American Idol skit was funny. TV Funhouse was absolutely hysterical. Brian Fellow's was OK. Other than that, it was a complete waste.
