SNL 11/21/09 - H: Joseph Gordon-Levitt - MG: Dave Matthews Band

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's monologue is supposed to be really good, we'll see how that turns out. Also, DMB rarely disappoints live.

No problem, it's not quite Goldberg-level of quality, but I thought it would do the job

I suppose that depends entirely on whether or not you believe the Dave Matthews Band to be good. I, personally, cannot stand them. So, for me, "rarely" is a term that does not apply, as "always" would be the more accurate description.

That having been said, here's hoping Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a better host than January "What camera?" Jones.

Figured that went without saying.

This will be DMB's 4th appearance on SNL, and Dave Matthews' 5th.

JGL has done some great acting in movies. And he is best remembered for "3rd Rock from the Sun" so I expect him to be very good hosting.

Yeah, I remember when they did Too Much around 95-97? That was a great SNL performance.

Sweet, they better do a Derek Jeter's Taco Hole bit or something related to it; that bit spawned a great running joke with Trump's House of Wings and Al Sharprton's Sushi Hut. "If you pass Derek Jeter's Taco Hole, you've gone too far"

Yup, that was in '96. Terri Hatcher was the host.

I like Levitt as an actor. I can see him getting an Oscar nod at some point in his career. It doesn't guarantee he'll be a good SNL host, but I'm willing to give him a chance.

Oh man... and my middle name is spelled "Jon", I should have remembered that.

For an Obama-themed Cold Open, that was pretty funny.

So far, so bad. The dancing/singing monologue was pretty painful. And yet another retro skit (the game show). Just terrible.

The Reba song was funny and the Mellow Skit had its moments. The high foot bit caught me off guard and I laughed a bit because it was awkward and funny. Dave playing Ozzy was pretty good if you ask me.

What's up with them bringing back "What Up With That?" so soon?

But I'll take Sudekis in a track suit and chains any day!

And we've got Al Gore, Mindy Kaling, and Lindsey Buckingham (again).




... And if you are keeping track, JGL has gone 5 for 5 in singing in a sketch.

Sudekis was great in that last sketch. When he came out with his own boom box and made the reference that Genesis was back together, I almost lost it.

Not a great ep but it was okay.

And, I fixed the spelling of Alicia's last name, so people wouldn't think she might be related to Alan Keyes.
