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.

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.

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...
WELCOME HOME, COLONEL ANGUS!
"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!"
