EPISODE REVIEWS


Jennifer Love Hewitt / Beastie Boys
November 21, 1998


[OPENING] Lewinsky and Tripp chat on phone

John Goodman is better used as a host then just a surprise guest, but this sketch was excellent.

Grade:A-

 

[MONOLOGUE] Jennifer Love Hewitt

The song and dance got very old very fast.

Grade:D+

 

[SKETCH] The Ladies' Man

"I would suggest you try it up the butt."

Grade:B+

 

[SKETCH] Celine Dion's new album

They tore her to shreds on this one. Loved Horatio Sanz as Meat Loaf.

Grade:B+

 

[SKETCH] The How You Say? Ah Yes, Show with Antonio Banderas

Not as good without Horatio, but still alright.

Grade:B

 

[SKETCH] The Spartans at the hospital

Would have been better if JLH didn't jump off of the bed and dance. The Spartans were alright at their most annoying yet.

Grade:C+

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Ambiguously Gay Duo (Ace and Gary answer fan mail)

Obviously a rush job, it didn't pick up until the end, but it was still fairly good.

Grade:B-

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

Absolutely horrible. One and a half good jokes. And get rid of the pre-Update stand-up routine, already!

Grade:E

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Beastie Boys

Grade:B

 

[SKETCH] MKG goes for Miss Clean Teen

It's been a while since we've seen her and far overdue.

Grade:A-

 

[SKETCH] Let's Make it Happen

This was an odd premise, but I liked it.

Grade:B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Beastie Boys

I wasn't expecting "sabotage'" which added to the enjoyment.

Grade:A

 

[SKETCH] Saddam and his pals

Laughed my ass off.

Grade:A

 

Overall:If JLH wasn't there, it would have been a possible A.

Grade:B
