Hardball ruled.

The monologue was good.

"Pranksters" was good.

The Continential was good. Also nice to hear Phil Hartman's voice again.

Lots of cameos during Update. Best one was Steve Martin's cameo.

Good to see Will Ferrell again, but I hate that "Lovahs" sketch.

Overall, SNL was pretty good last night, thanks to Walken.

The sketches were amazing as Walken is a genious, however I would have spread out the cameos instead of them all happening in the last 45 minutes. As always, the Foo Fighters were good.

Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Britney Spears, Jim Carrey - who the hell wasn't at SNL last night? (I get the feeling that Jim Carrey was just hanging out backstage and took it upon himself to join the Foo Fighters.. When they rerun this episode, check out the look on Dave Grohl's face before he realizes who ran onstage.)

Still, unsuprisingly one of the best shows of the season. Christopher Walken always brings the proverbial funny, and I think Pranksters may have joined the trivial Dead Zone psychic, the census taker and, of course, Blue Oyster Cult - Behind The Music as one of those classic Walken sketches. ("I pranked him to death with a tire iron.")

Hardball is usually great, but this one seemed really soft, like they were afraid to offend either side. (Of course, the SNL political sketches have become incredibly weak and vanilla since 9/11, but Hardball never seemed so bland. Maybe it's just because we didn't get Tracy Morgan or Chris Kattan as Paul Begala... Damned Crossfire.)

I think I'm the only person who likes that Vegas lounge singers sketch they keep sticking on at 12:45.

Hasn't SNL been pretty lame this season? I reckon it would be one the funniest guy that's still on the show is probably Darrell Hammond.

Wow, I completely disagree more about the episode. I thought the sketches were all pretty bad, and I think that the cameos were a sure sign of weak writing.

The Continental is a horrible skit, always has been, and always will be. I don't hate Walken, but he just doesn't do it for me.

And come on, couldn't the writers think of SOMETHING for Steve Martin to do? The "cameo" cameo was pointless.

I'm such a fan of Walken and it didn't disappoint.

I usually really hate the Vegas lounge sketches. But this one was the best yet. Walken walking in with his pants around his ankles, best last sketch I've seen in a , long time.

THE CONTINENTAL - I've always been a fan of this sketch and it worked again.

Update was on the money again, love the new warning billboards.

Good to see Will Farrell doing a sketch. I'm also a fan of the lovers sketch. I thought it was really funny.

Nothing really bad, which is amazing because there's always a couple of total stinkers. Real good show this week.

I'm quickly falling in love with Maya Rudolph. Christ, between her dressed as Christina and Britney making a cameo, WU was a definite thumbs-up. Too bad the jokes were the worst part of the segment.
Colonel Angus reminded me of the old "How's your penis?" sketches from the Nealon/Carvey era.
Seemed like they gave some of the featured players the spotlight this week. Mixed results this time around, but things can only improve.

Seven years later, I'm still saying this. Even though no one else remembers this sketch.

This episode was definitely one of the best in a long while. Pranksters ("You're starting to sound like a Stiffy Stifferson"), The Continental, Jim Carrey playing his "air guitar leg", STEVE FRICKIN' MARTIN(!), Will Farrell with his lover Britney Spears, and the sketch I can't believe you've all left out...


"Get out the fresh linens, we're having Colonel Angus here tonight!"

"Colonel Angus can be quite messy."

"The ladies looooooove Colonel Angus."

"I never tell stories 'bout Colonel Angus 'cause they usually end in puhsonal embarrassment!"

"I never really cared for Colonel Angus. He always rubbed me the wrong way."

It took me a few minutes to figure out the joke. I'm such a nerd.
