    Woo Jennifer Lawrence! I’m pretty sure I’m going to be in the minority here, but this show was AMAZING!!!! Aside from The Lumineers and a bit of stiltedness in Jen’s opening monologue, the laughs just didn’t stop coming for me.

    It’s too bad that now SNL’s next two hosts are exactly the kind I’m not looking forward to. Maybe they’ll surprise me the way Bruno Mars did…well, maybe Adam Levine might, but I’m not so sure that could happen.

    No surprise, Jennifer Lawrence is huge right now, between Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games.

  • Luke

    SNL hasn’t had a great season this time around, but I enjoyed this episode, and the Bruno Mars episode in the fall. They’re missing something this time around, and it’s Kristin Wiig and Andy Samberg.

  • Michael

    This was the worst episode of the season, IMO! The opening monologue was the best thing about the episode!

  • Katie

    I actually didn’t like it that much, I wasn’t a fan of Jennifer’s Opening monologue. I know it’s all joking and what not but it was just all conceitedness talk. I thought the Top Dog Chef or whatever was ridiculously stupid along wit a couple other skits.

    Haven’t watched it yet but will now, on hulu. I like JLaw…just saw Silver Linings Playbook for the second time.


    2.8! Go Jennifer!

    I must be the only person who just doesn’t like JL. I find her vacant and irritating.

  • steve

    Crappy show.

  • joel

    Absolutely appalling. The lowest quality SNL in ages. Most of those involved mailed it in or were just going through the motions.

  • Joel

    One of the worst SNL’s I’ve ever seen.

  • Jerry Styles

    Jennifer Lawrence has to be the most overrated actress going today. She hasn’t done anything but get a lucky role in a huge movie franchise.

    @Jerry Styles

    Obviously, you haven;t watched the Silver Linings Playbook. She’s great there, a bit bitchy, though.
