I can't believe we may get 4 years of Jay Pharoah. He was really bad in the cold opening, messing up his lines.

It's a telling thing about how bad things are getting when Keenan has the best skit in the show.

Jay's is an actual impersonation.

nothing worth watching in this episode.

SNL puts their best sketches on early in the show so when you see the first sketch after the monologue is the truly dumb 'bitch whats the answer' game show you shouldn't hold out hope for much else.

Dermot Mulrony should be ashamed for bothering to show up.

awful awful episode.

The highlight of the night was Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney?

Was every sketch a fake TV show?

I enjoyed Maine Justice - Sudekis was killing it in that.

I know it's somewhat subjective, but I laughed at Fred's Obama impersonation. I don't find myself laughing at Pharoah's Obama. Also, I think the writing has been much worse this season which makes a difference as far as the words coming out of the fool's mouth. Last nights cold open with Hader as Boehner was just terrible. Hader had no business being in front of that camera either.

I was hoping Foxx might bring some of his "In Living Color" characters to this, but I guess legal reasons kept him from doing the "Rock your world" gal.

The Ding Dong bit was amusing, but overall not too much worth mentioning. Looks like they're really playing it safe next week with a former cast member from the 80s and former Beatle.

He came close during the Tyler Perry skit. He looked like Wanda with the crossed eyes a few times.

That's pretty much been the format of SNL for decades

That was the best skit of the show, everything else was terrible.

The political skits that usually open the show are getting worse than ever.

But they usually mix in a couple non-tv themed skits. I don't think they had any this week, they did two game show parodies.

I mianly laughed at Jamie Fox breaking character, especially when Sudekis was killing it in the Maine Justice skit.

I thought this was a great episode, perhaps the best of the season so far. Maine Justice, the Ding Dong, the crystal girls, the tree pimp... Really solid throughout.
