Saddam Hussein Election: This
was really good. Even though Darrell played Saddam better
than Horatio, I guess SNL thought it looked funnier to have Horatio
play him. I liked when Maya made that loud sound when she
found out Saddam won. Grade: A
Monologue: I really hope
they stop with this "I'm just kidding" character. It
was ok one more time for this monologue, but I'm fearing this
will become an overdone character. Grade: B
Hardball: Tracy was great
as Harry Belafonte and his rediculous racist remarks. I
like the Pokeman comment. Grade: A
Lifetime Personal Space Movie:
This was ok. It was a bit slow moving at times, but it
wasn't bad. I think a funnier ending would have been to
make Rachel look even more opposite from Amy's portrayal of her
than it was. Grade: B
Wake Up Wakefield: Overdone
sketch, but this one was funny with the "cocunuts".
Ambiguosly Gay Duo: ENOUGH
ALREADY!!!!!! It was funny 5 years ago.
Musical Guest: Odd stuff.
I'm not into their music.
Weekend Update: Not one
of the better updates. Some of Jimmy and Tina's jokes towards
the end were ok, but I didn't like the first few.
McCain Sings Streisand: This
was pretty good. Grade: A
Drunk Irishmen: Deadly.
Again, I hope this won't turn into a recurring sketch,
but I have a feeling it'll be back around March. Grade:
Musical Guest: Still didn't
Overall Grade: B
