Alright, so SNL just went off. Host Lindsay Lohan with musical guest Usher. I was pleasantly surprised. Highlight of the night was a sketch that probably would've died had Rachel Dratch not gotten a severe case of the giggles. Instead, it became one of the funniest sketches in awhile. Poor Rachel had to deal with constant close-ups where she was supposed to look morose as "Debbie Downer," but instead, each time, she burst into giggles.
No Fred Armisen that I remember. The Tattoo-removal commercial was inspired. The Jared's Room sketch was forgettable, though they're usually a highlight of the show. Only really inspired moment were the lines the robot had, especially the "whoa -- what if I'm human and you're the robots?" I wonder if they're going to remember continuity for next season -- they say Jared's moving out of his room, so will they bring the sketch back in a different room, discontinue it, or totally forget about that?
Nice to see Tina Fey in a sketch, but she was underused. Still, it was decent. The whole sleep-over sketch was kind of lame. The Harry Potter sketch as a one-joke wonder, but it had its moments. Overall, though, it was a very good episode. And for awhile I definitely empathized with the students at Hogwarts, 'cause, well, Lindsay Lohan done grew up. She's truly gorgeous -- and not anorexic, to boot! I think that's it. If I can't remember it, it probably wasn't that great.
