    Still a good show. Nice that they’re making an effort to give the new cast members some face time.

    Aww, ratings down on an awesome show?! Typical. Every single sketch was hilarious, even the ones that I was concerned would flop (like the Girlfriend Talk Show.) But my favorite by far was “Mokiki Does The Sloppy Swish,” just for sheer random fun.

    Even Rihanna was funny – unintentionally, though. Seriously, whose bright idea was that awful CG background? And, speaking of Rihanna, wasn’t she just on the show like six months ago? Have they really run out of actual musical talent to put on the show? I hate that SNL seems to be largely incapable of pairing excellent hosts with great musical guests (a rare exception being Daniel Craig and Muse.)

    Hope Jeremy Renner delivers a good show next week, even with Maroon 5 around…

    Oh, and I almost forgot – Flaritin. Loved that one. I could relate, because I’ve faked allergies like that a hundred times.

    Wow, Anne is amazing – what a lady, great show. Decent ratings

  • Michael

    It was a great show!

    The Homeland sketch was amazing!

  • Jp

    The best episode this season! The girl can act and writing was actually very good this episode. Unfortunately I didn’t see one promo for it. Only knew who was on when I checked DVR. Shame.

    “Averaged a 5.0/12 in metered-market households, matching the
    show’s second-highest overnights so far this season.”

    Is this a good thing?

    Was this the lowest SNL episode this season?

    Anne Hathaway’s “Homeland” sketch seriously deserves an Emmy nomination next year!

  • Joe

    I pissed my self at Homeland skit and Mokkiki was hilarious 2.6 its not bad but i was hoping for more

  • Rebecca

    I saw promos for it during the week but haven’t watched the show yet. I will on hulu soon. I like the new female cast member with the crazy eyes (blonde?) – she’s pretty good. My favorite parts in each show still tend to be with Weekend Update (Stefan, mostly).

    The show was hilarious and Anne is such an enjoyable talent to watch almost without fail.

  • joel

    Kate McKinnon. She does the Ellen impersonation. Not that it matters but she too is openly gay.

  • Ashley

    No one wants to support Rihanna anymore.

    SNL was pre-empted after 1145p in Indianapolis market due to breaking news.
