Julianna Margulies / DMX

OK, this is my very first review, so it would be lovely if any of you
reading this would e-mail me and let me know how I'm doing. My e-mail is

Anyway, here's the review:

*Cold opening* A Message from Hillary
I think this was a lot better than most of the openings. Ana's Hillary is
getting better, and Darrell's Clinton is always good. I almost hope she
wins the Senate thing, because then it will give them an excuse to keep
Darrell doing Clinton.

*Monologue* Julianna Margulis
I didn't know she was leaving ER! Kind of a lot of people are leaving the
show this season, don't you think? Maybe ER's coming to its end.
Anyway...back to reviewing...The ER Special Veterinary Unit thing was very
cute, although I think they may have gotten the idea from Thursday's show
(one of the doctors brought in his dog to be operated on, in case you don't
watch the show) I loved the hampster, and overall, this was a good

*Commercial* Litter Critters
Didn't they just do this, like, really recently? They could at least wait a
bit before they start re-running things.
Rating: N/A

*Dinner Party*
Gross, but funny. The audience had a ball with this one. Great cheesy
music. Anyone notice the look on Kattan's face when she spit into his
mouth? That was one of the best moments in the sketch! I was just
wondering - what would they do if someone seriously choked on air? Would
they cut to commercial or try and wait and see if they recover?

*E! News Daily*
I really don't like this show. It's completely pointless, and I was glad at
first to see them making fun of it. Too bad the sketch wasn't all that
good. It dragged on and on, and nobady even remotely resembled the people
they were doing impressions of. Sanz sounded more like the guy from
Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous than Elton John.

*Phsycotic Secretary*
My God, could Cheri be any more annoying??? I used to think she was great,
but it's getting a little bit old. This didn't make me laugh at all. Yuck.

*Crocodile Hunter*
Funny for about 30 seconds. MadTv does the same sketch, except in
Claymation, and also funny.
Rating:1 out of 5

*Weekend Update*
Enhh. The jokes made me smile, but not much more than that. Colin seemed
more relaxed than usual, did anyone else pick up on that? Cheri was
annoying, once again. She doesn't usually bug me this much, but tonight, I
can't stand her.
Rating: 3 out of 5 overall, 2 out of 5 for Cheri

*Musical Guest* DMX
I hate rap. Like, really really a lot.
Rating: N/A (I dislike rap too much to be fair)

*Erectile Disfunction*
It had it's moments, but started to drag a little bit. The ending was good,

*Savin' it w/ Jessica Simpson*
I actually liked this sketch. It was stupid and pointless, but it made me
laugh, so hey. Perfect humor for 12:40 at night.
Rating: 4 out of 5

*Musical Guest* DMX
Again? The crap musical guests always go twice! Why?
Rating: N/A

*Bloater Brothers*
Those had to be the greatest pick-up lines ever. They were so pathetic they
were funny! Slow in the middle, but pretty good otherwise.
Rating: 3 out of 5

*William Shatner for Priceline.com*
My grandmother loves Priceline. She can't use a computer for her life, but
she knows how to use Priceline. This could have been a much better sketch
if they had put more thought into it, or if they had more time for it.
Rating: 2 out of 5

Well, it had its ups and downs, so I think it pretty much evened out to be
an OK show. Not the best, not the worst, just sort of OKish. Can't say I
expected much more, so oh, well.
