John Goodman / Neil Young
May 6, 2000


It's been a seemingly long wait for a new SNL, but overall this show was
surprisingly disappointing.

[OPENING] Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Not as many laughs as Hammond's Regis impression usually garners. The
scrolling interruptions were occasionally funny, but mostly just annoying.
C

[MONOLOGUE]
This was ok. The best part was seeing the SNL cast "out of character." B

[COMMERCIAL] Mach 14
Too drawn-out. C+

[SKETCH] Wanna Be A VJ-3
I am all for making fun of MTV and Generation X, but this wasn't
particularly wonderful. I'm sure Jimmy Fallon's Carson Daly impression was
dead-on, but I don't watch enough MTV to appreciate it. C

[SKETCH] Sexual Harrassment in the Workplace
I'm getting tired of the writers using sexual puns to get a laugh. I did
enjoy seeing Tim Meadows play a regular guy. D+

[SKETCH] Christopher Lowell Show
The toilet seat stolen out of a Dairy Queen was the best thing about this
skit. C

[CARTOON] Lorne Michaels on The Life of a Catch Phrase
Some interesting animation, and I enjoyed seeing references to classic SNL
bits. B-

[UPDATE]
Jokes were so/so. Hammond's Clinton was wonderful as usual...I don't even
have to listen to the jokes, all it takes is the lip-biting and
eyebrow-raising to get me laughing. B+

[SKETCH] Rock N Roll Heaven
Morgan's brief "lead singer from Cameo" bit got a laugh out of me. Jimmy
Fallon's overenthusiasm was fun. B-

[SKETCH] Blowder Brothers
The Blowder Brothers sketches get funnier the more I see them. Kip
Blowder's stride was wonderful. B+

[COMMERCIAL] Pirate
Pretty boring. C-
