The cold opening was alright, although Norm MacDonald's Dole is much better than Dan Ackroyd's Dole.

Update was alright.

Baby K sucked.

The Ham song was funny, as was Parnell's speech about the writer of the ham skit.

The funniest sketch last night was TV Funhouse. Nice to see they got the guy who does the voice of Spongebob to do X-Presidents.

I also liked Horatio Sanz's tribute to Mr. Rogers.

Overall, an alright SNL.

Just a little note for the SNL nuts out there, Norm MacDonald is taking his Stan Hooper character/name over to Fox for a sitcom. - Now with El Nastio!

Will Forte continues to impress me. I can't wait for him and Fred Armison to start getting more skits, and of course anytime Horatio is on, I'm happy.
I'm still waiting for The Falconer to return, however. Even with Queen Latifah as the host I still found it mostly entertaining, and that wasn't something I thought she could pull out.

Andy Richter does indeed control the universe.

The X-Presidents ruled. That was the best TV Funhouse cartoon to date.

The Mr. Rogers tribute was cool also.

Two really good SNLs in a row, in a season that's had precious few.

I don't think I have to tell you how much I loved that Mr. Rogers tribute at the end. Very classy, athough that didn't look a thing like Trolley. I still remembered all the words to that song.

The opening felt more like the classic political sketches of old, probably just the return of Darrell Hammond's fantastic Clinton. Oh, who am I kidding? I just liked it because I had the idea to bust out Dan Ackroyd's Bob Dole for the line "Bill, you ignorant slut" as soon as they announced the Clinton/Dole segments on 60 Minutes. I love being ahead of the loop!

(And while his Dole really isn't as good as Norm McDonald's, neither compares to the Bob Dole from Conan O'Brien, so it don't matter. "How much Dole could a Bob Dole dole if a Bob Dole could dole Dole?")

That ham sketch was the kind I love - those Python-esque insane twists that pull a really terrible sketch into a work of art, man... The song was great, but when Chris Parnell started talking about how the sketch was written while drunk, ten minutes before the show went on the air, THAT, my friend, was awesome.

TV Funhouse was also great, and the first sketch in a long while that had the feel of a *real* SNL political sketch. And not only was that the real Spongebob, I think the real team animated him. Amy Poehler was the Powerpuff Girl, though. And, as cool as the cameos on the Christopher Walken episode were, you just can't compete with Spongebob and Grape Ape.

And I had never heard of Ms. Dynamite before last night, and she didn't suck as bad as I was assuming she would, so bonus points there.

And, yeah, the rapping baby thing sucked, but it still was better than Nia Vardalos.

Did Amy get her teeth fixed? I haven't watched it in the last month or so. No matter. I adore her. I think she loves me too. She just doesn't know about it.
I thought the show was solid. I REALLY liked Latifah's monologue. It was the 2nd best of the season (the first being the episode with Brittany Murphy where the cast rapped to each other). Baby K is eh, but not terribly bad. I did like Queen Latifah as the jazz singer who put sexual innuendo in her songs.

Welcome back, Jazz! We missed you!

Amy's Kelly Rippa really had me cracking up for some reason. The shots at the Fox network were really good, too.

I wish they made Advent calendars for WrestleMania, although I'd skip the Mark Henry day.

* The skit about the slutty jazz singer just KILLED me....just hilarious. Nice to see Darrell bring back the Jack Perkins impression.

* I think I'd watch SNL if it was just Will Forte reading the phone book. The man's voice is just pure comedy.

One of the best shows of the season, right up there with John McCain and Nia Vardalos.

Well Mr. Burns had done it.
The power plant had won it.
With Rogers Clemens clucking all the while.
Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile.

I'm disappointed with most of this season, though Queen did surprise me.

Am I the only one sticking around till 3am to catch the classic episodes? They're re-airing the 96-97 era, with all the awesomeness of Norm MacDonald's update and the origins of Craig & Ariana, the Joe Pesci Show (when the real Pesci and DeNiro appeared, I died of laughter) and the general awesomeness of Jim Breuer.

Knowing the circumstances, I don't think Mr. Rogers threatening a laundromat attendant with a gun is appropriate anymore. So you get this instead.

Not to mention the beginning of TV Funhouse.

Besides 96-97, 95-96, was also a good year for SNL. The end of the O.J. Trial, classic Norm updates, Spade In America, and Get off The Shed.

This is terrific news, considering I saw every episode except the final three, which I was denied due to work complications. I still don't know how it ends. Don't tell meeeeeeeee!
