Did anyone else catch this? Will Ferrell was the host and he proved to me just how valuable he was to that show.
And wouldn't you know it, the first skit was a "Celebrity Jeopardy" ... not to mention his playing the cowbell (in full Cowbell costume) with Queens of the Stone Age & a Robert Goulet ringtones skit ...
I had no idea he was the host and tuned in just to see who was host with every intention of not wacthing and heading off to bed. Needless to say I was up until 1:00 am.
It was good to see him back in sketch comedy again, but I thought there wasmore he could have done with previous characters. They could have brought back Sheri Oteri for a cheerleaders reunion. Or the guy in the men's store with the tiny cell phone. I did lovve the Cowbell guy though.
You can do it Otto! You can do it Otto!
Make this spare, I'll give you free gelato!
Then back to my place where I will get you blotto!
That's the other note I forgot to post. Yeah, a 42% increase in total viewers in one week would be basically unprecedented in a non-gimmick setting like this. The Country Music Awards got a 10.1 and a 5.4 in the 18-49 demo.
