Alec Baldwin / Luciano Pavarotti
December 12, 1998
Overview - I was looking forward to this episode for a while cause I always love it when Alec hosts. This time, though, I don't think he was that great. I've seen him do better.
President address - This was a bit repetitive, but I liked it. A-
Monologue - My favorite part in this was when they had John Goodman be a part of the SNL 2011 (or whatever year it was) cast. The rest of it....not so great. B, I guess.
Commercial: This wasn't funny at all. F.
Morning Latte - This would have been so mush better if Alec had gone insane or something. I don't know. (Boy, I really suck at this episode review thing, don't I?) I guess I'd give this one a B.
Cassidy - This reminded me of Canteen Boy. It was funny, mainly because it was so bizarre. Sort of Monty Pythonish. A.
TV Funhouse: This wasn't funny. I got bored. I changed the channel. F.
Commerical - I liked this one. But they kept on repeating the number so many times that I got sick of it. I guess that was th point, though. Anyway, I'd give it a B+
Pavarotti/Williams - This was really cool. It sounded amazing. I have always loved this song. A.
Weekend Update - I've never been a big fan of Colin doing Update, but I liked Tim and the Kawanzettes (or however it's spelled). B+
Delicious Dish - I was hysterical. The whole balls thing was so predictable, but it made me laugh anyway, especially the way they were keeping straight faces throughout the whole thing. Probably one of the best Delicious Dish sketches I've seen. A.
Impeachment Procedures - I knew that they would have an impeachment sketch somewhere in here. Not that great. The O.J. thing made me laugh. A little. C+
Chanukah Hymns - This wasn't bad. Is it just me, or when Molly Shannon was singing with those two other guys (I think they were Chris Parnell and Jimmy Fallon, but I don't remember), was she a little off key? B.
Bill Brasky - What the hell was this? I think I missed the joke. This wasn't funny. I didn't really get the point. F.
Overall - As I said before, this show wasn't bad, but Alec can do much better. They should have let Pavarotti do another song. In comparison to some of the other episodes this season, though, I'd have to say this one is my favorite.
