Just a reminder that Al Gore is hosting Saturday Night Live tonight, with musical guest Phish.

This could be a classic like the John McCain, and Rudolph Guiliani episodes, or it could be a trainwreck like the Ron Reagan episode. I'm hoping its a classic.

The main reason SNL's been good over the past few years are, in addition to Will Ferrell, the excellent political sketches. They've still got the latter going for them, so I have no doubt this'll be another great show. If nothing else, I'm sure there's gonna be a Hardball sketch.

I'm guessing trainwreck. Giuliani and McCain weren't exactly great actors, but at least they seemed at ease in front of a camera. Gore doesn't even have that.

And NOTHING will touch the McCain episode. That was one of the best shows SNL has done in the past few years.

That Meet The Press sketch with McCain is the SNL sketch of the year so far.

You must've missed McCain as the pot smoking art teacher.

Seriously, Gore held his own on Conan, despite being given the worst monotone EVER by the fates, so maybe his episode won't be too bad.

Personally, I'd love to see Gore and Hammond's Clinton fishing or just plain hanging out.

That and Donahue. Gotta get 'em in while they still can, before MSNBC completes the long, slow flush down the toilet of TV failure.

Well, it trailed off a bit near the end, but as a whole I thought this episode rocked the casbah. Gore was awesome and we got the return of Stuart Smalley!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure I've got some biases here, being a Democrat and avid Gore supporter but it was still pretty darned funny.

Gore seemed wooden, as expected, but he came nowhere near 1.0 Forbes. More like a .4, and DeNiro last week was at least a .5. A good job by the host.

The open and monologue were awesome, Hardball was alright, and the trip to "West Wing" was different and very welcome. All the Trent Lott jokes ("You're shedding some light on it...and it's coming from a cross you just lit!") were hilarious. TV Funhouse had me rolling on the floor. SMIGEL~!

Not a bad show, one of the better ones of the season. The cue card reading by both Gore and Jeff Richards in the Wonka sketch was atrocious, though. And the Jarrett's Room skits have to end; there's nothing more they can do with them.

The cold opening was funny. Ditto the monologue.

Hardball was decent. I didn't expect Gore as Lott.

I thought The West Wing parody was boring.

Update was alright. So who gets to do Update when Fallon leaves.

Stuart Smalley was decent.

The sketch of the night was the Charlie Brown TV Funhouse.

Overall, a decent show, I guess. Gore was alright. However, the John McCain SNL was funnier.

The West Wing spot was great, mainly because I'm grateful that moron is not and will never be President. The Hardball segment was great too(just as much for the Demcoratic consultant who agreed with everything the GOP said; it's funny because it's true).

But nothing does touch the TV funhouse sketch.

The TV funhouse sketch was pure genius.
