No worries. We failed by not stepping up!

I loved the Liam Neeson and Jon Hamm cameos.

The Matthew McConaughey impression during WU was awful IMO.

I don't know Lena, but I thought she did a good job as host.

Wasn't familiar with The National. They ain't bad.

The Harrison Ford impression was pretty bad too.

I know the term hipster gets thrown around a lot, but holy shit they were as hipster as it gets. I looked up there bio and got a good due to the fact that they are based out of Brooklyn.

They looked like a bunch of middle aged dads going through a mid-life crisis that decided to start a "rock" band together.

Lena Dunham was a great host, and Cecily's Venezuelan character was excellent. BIG improvement over last week.

Off for 3 more weeks, though?

The national have been around for well over a decade, it's not like they just formed.

They've been around since the late 90s. Took long enough for them to be noticed.

A very good episode; I thought Lena was great. It was so much better than the last episode that I almost wonder if Lena Dunham had a hand in some of the writing. The sketch with the new hire on the Scandal team was the best sketch I've seen all season imo. I've heard of the National, but never heard them before, but I kinda liked them. Like it or not kids, this is rock now

Louie CK is pulling double duty on the next show, when was the last time there wasn't a musical guest?

When does that show air? This week?

A standup set would be awesome.

I got burned the last time Louie CK hosted the show. It was less than entertaining and I only laughed during the the Abraham Lincoln skit.

I had to FF that bit because I still have all of True Detective on the DVR and feared spoilers. Looks like I might have skipped the only good part of another wretchedly unfunny episode. I fear for Louis CK. (I've stopped bothering with the musical guests altogether and don't even consider that part of the show any more.)

I only watched half of it but I thought Dunham was great and brought a lot of energy to the show.
