Aguilera / Maroon 5

Off the Damn Shed
Pre-Show Thoughts- Lorne is really
picking bad guests. Pop stars shouldn't host comedy shows. Timberlake
did ok, hopefully Christina will too.
Hardball- Hardball sketches are always good, but they're starting
to get overused. This was a decent sketch. I liked Chris' role,
Haratio as Rosie is always funny. Darrell was good here. I love
Sex and the City- I've never seen the actual show, so I'm sure
a lot of the jokes went over my head. Rachel and Maya did especially
well. Amy's impression was alright, but she really looked nothing
like Sarah Jessica Prker. This sketch was funny, but could have
been done a bit better.
Do You Know Who My Dad Is?- Good premise, bad writing, good performances.
I usually don't like SNL's game show skethes, but this was enjoyable.
Forte was there which is definitely a good thing.
Fun with Real Audio- Smigel's cartoons have been excellent this
season. This wasn't as good as the FWRA from the Elijah Wood
episode, but it was funny nevertheless.
History Channel: Celebration of Women Week- Didn't enjoy this
one bit. The female cast this year is very strong, so I should
have like it, but it was just boring. Darrell's Donahue is still
Maroon 5- I like this song, so this was watchable, unlike most
of the musical performances.
Weeked Update- Excellent update. None of the jokes were terrible.
Forte was funny as usual. I really enjoyed this.
Best Jokes: Denis Kuninich/Littlest Groom, KKK Ken, Polaroid
and Bacardi, Jesus Horses, and Peta.
Dance Off- The dancing was really funny at times. Kenan's dance
especially. It started to get boring, then Will came in and I
started laughing my ass off.
Grade: 9/10 because of Forte's appearance.
Celebrities Visit Christina- This was my favorite sketch of the
night because Haratio as Ozzy was absolutely hilarious. Kenan
as Star Jones was somewhat funny. He playes a lot of women, doesn't
he? It was good that Christina didn't mind being poked fun at
a bit. Haratio really stole the show here... his fall through
the table was very unexpected.
Besos Y Lagrimas- This was accurate, because that's exactly how
those spanish soap operas are. This was a little too similar
to Mad TV's spanish parodies, though. Good sketch either way.
Huggies: Don't air this damn commercial again.
Getting Fired: Forte is getting a lot of roles tonite, and that's
not a bad thing. The ending of this sketch was the funniest.
It really fit Forte's odd kind of humor.
Maroon 5: Didn't like this song.
Wallgreen's: Pretty good for the last sketch of the night. It
could have been shorter, but this was funny.
Goodnights: No Darrell once again, but that shouldn't be suprising
anymore. Haratio riding around the stage on his wheelchair
was really really funny.
Overall: This show was very good. Christina was not bad, but
I didn't like many of the roles she played. Tonite's episode
get's a grade of 8/10.
That's my review, good night everyone.
