Mena Suvari / Lenny Kravitz
January 20, 2001


Here's how my Grading Scale works:
A-Potential to be a Favorite
B-this goes to skits that I LOL'ed at
C-smileworthy
D-okay I guess
F-a waste of time

 

(OPENING) Clinton's Last Speech
Not bad...which is exactly how the openings have been lately. I hope to see more Darrell and Will stuff the rest of the year...but we'll see.

Grade: C

 

(MONOLOGUE)Mena Suvari
Not surprisingly, she didn't do the monologue herself, but that's okay. She did a decent job, although I was for sure she'd mention that she was also in American Virgin and American Pie. It was kinda sad seeing Will in his Spartan uniform..I really didn't think we ever would again. Its not everyday I get to Tracy, Molly, and Will covered in rose petals. Therefore, my grading is judged on pure guilty pleasure...

 

Grade: B

 

(COMMERCIAL)Gatorade Love Bucket
Hmm..maybe if they re-air this one later in the season I will like it better, the way I was with "Corn Chip Nail Tips"

Grade: D

 

(SKIT)Total Bitch Airlines?
Yep, that's right. This sketch wasn't terrible, but do they not realize that it was...kinda done before? I mean, all that was needed was an occasional "Buh-Bye."

Grade: C

 

(SKIT)Janet Reno's Dance Party
Will's Janet returns! Yay! He looks so much like her its kinda scary. Want proof? When the real Janet bust through the wall it took me .3 seconds to realize that it wasn't prerecorded and that wasn't Will. Oh well though. She's a good sport.

Grade:B

 

(SKIT)Rap Street
I don't normally enjoy this sketch, but considering that I just LOVE it when a cast member breaks character. Hehe, that damn mustache of Horatio's. and I think it was Jerry that said "CBD's" and not "CD's". But they played it off nicely.

Grade: B

 

(TV FUNHOUSE )X-Presidents
Nothing impressive here.

Grade: D

 

(SKIT )Wake up Little Susie
Props to Mena for not cracking up or anything halfway through this. Good to see Tracy again tonight.

Grade: C

 

(WEEKEND UPDATE WITH JIMMY FALLON AND TINA FEY)
The update is slowing down a bit, but I doubt it will be long before they pick it back up. I really wasn't expecting to see Jacob Silj tonight, but hey, welcome back. I like the Marilyn Manson joke, as always. And I won't be able to shake the image of Jimmy "doing the 'W'".
Grade: B

 

(SKIT )Veronica & Co.
Again?! Was this really necessary? Not as bad as the last one though, that's for sure.

Grade: D

 

(SKIT) Kyle and Sean Demarco
I love these characters to bits. But I imagine that Id see them in the Jennifer Lopez episode instead. Oh well. Nice underpants Chris and Chris. Once again, Im a little freaked out that the whole rubbing chest up against each other thing didn't gross me out.

Grade: B

 

OVERALL GRADE: B
BEST SKIT: Kyle and Sean Demarco
WORST SKIT: Veronica & Co.
HOST GRADING: B, she proved my prediction wrong. Good Job gal.
MUSICAL GUEST: Thank God there was only one song.
FINAL COMMENTS: Bring on the Lopez! haha! Im drunk ladies and gentlemen. Just Kidding, Goodnight and Have a pleasant tommorrow!
