[OPENING] the Kulps go Christmas Caroling

I've seen funnier ones.

Rating: 2 of 5

 

[MONOLOGUE] Helen Hunt

I didn't like this.

Rating: 1 of 5

 

[COMMERCIAL] Cookie Dough

Hilarious. SNL's done a great job with ads so far this season.

Rating: 5 of 5

 

[SKETCH] "Delicious Dish"

These are always funny sketches.

Rating: 5 of 5

 

[T.V. FUNHOUSE] Fun with Real Audio: Jesus and t.v.

This might have funnier if I weren't an athiest. I enjoyed Kathy Lee, getting blowed up, though.

Rating: 4.5 of 5

 

[SKETCH] "The Ladies' Man

It wasn't the best one.

Rating: 2 of 5

 

[SKETCH] Baseball Christmas Wish

This one was great! The writers have been trying some new ideas and it shows.

Rating: 5 of 5

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Hanson

I hate Hanson. I really really hate Hanson...

Rating: 0 of 5

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE]

Crappy Updates are hard to come by. This week's could've done without the sexist joke.

Rating 4.9 of 5

 

[SKETCH] Roxbury Guys

Someone please explain to me how the Roxbury Guys are funny.

Rating: 0 of 5

 

[SKETCH] Joan Rivers' Year End fashion Wrap-up

It could have been better if Darrel had gotten the Issac Mizrahi impersonation down right. He didn't get the accent or the lisp. The jokes could have been funnier, but the skeleton with the lipstick for Joan Rivers was terrific.

Rating: 3 of 5

 

[SKETCH] Burt Reynolds Christmas

Great premise, not-so-great writing.

Rating: 2.5 of 5

 

[SKETCH] ChristmaSoft

The Bill Gates sketches are always really cool.

Rating: 5 of 5

 

[SKETCH] Hanson Elevator Torture

The only good thing that Hanson was in the whole night.

Rating: 5 of 5

 

[MUSCIAL GUEST] Hanson

Not again...

Rating: 0 of 5

 

OVERALL:

Helen Hunt was o.k. The cast was great as usual.

Grade: B-
