New York Now:
This had its funny moments in the beginning, when they were showing the funny highlights of the "play". But the rest of it was terrible and boring.
Umm... What the hell was this? I'm guessing that they wrote this, and then thought that they could just add the funny parts in later. Well, that's what it felt like, at least.
This was a much better show than SNL has been in the (disappointing) past 3 weeks. It honestly had nothing to do with the host, because Wiig and Stone had more energy and better lines than Affleck, who was more John Cena than Tom Hanks or Ariana Grande, despite a solid episode. Kate McKinnon was so great. When this episode was good, it was GOOD. But when it was bad, oh boy was it bad. This is probably one of the more uneven SNL episode in recent memory, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It COULD have been consistently bad.
Brief Recap of Other Shows:
This was a really good show, but not the best this year. There were a lot of memorable sketches, and I loved the David S. Pumpkins mention.
Best Sketch: Hallelujah
Worst Sketch: Football Party
This episode was fine. It wasn't that bad, just disappointing because Wiig was a great host last time.
Best Sketch: The Bubble
Worst Sketch: QVC Auditions
Emma Stone really tried. But this was just a mess.
Best Sketch: The Christmas Candle
Worst Sketch: Posters
This just add fuel to my "Athletes should not host SNL" fire. This was bad. Really bad.
Best Sketch: Through Donald's Eyes
Worst Sketch: Talent Competition (This was just a sketch about an owl crapping.)
