Saturday Night Live, February 13th, 2011
Host: Zack Galifianakis
Music: Jessie J.

‘A’ for effort!

The Talk.
At first I thought they’d just start doing The Talk instead of The View sketches, but I liked how there was a bit of commentary to it. And it was actually pretty funny. Not sure why they didn’t have Jay Pharaoh play Holly Robinson.

Kings of Catchphrase Comedy.
I was ready to write this off, but the gags picked up in the last round.

Scared Straight.
Really? I guess it’s been a while. But really? Just for the decent “Colon First” gag?

Digital Short.
Those kids could have been funnier.

Jessie J.
Decent enough. Not much more to say.

Weekend Update.
Julie Taymor was the funniest thing Kristen Wiig has done in a while.
Loved Liam, the teenager who just woke up.

Dead Dog.
This one also came together in the end.

Celebrity Scoop.
Not the best Canadian accents, but charming, none the less. Not sure about Zack Galifianakis’ extended “ohhhhs.”
