Taylor Swift Did A Pretty Great Job Hosting SNL

I didn’t necessarily get the cold open because I don’t follow politics, actually that sketch is how I found out who won the damned race for New Jersey of which I was inundated with stupid political ads. Anyway, from there it was pretty good including Swift’s songologue and just the right amount of Kayne jokes. The highlight had to be this Twilight parody called Firelight starring Frankensteins.

We were also treated to two of my favorite recurring characters form this cast, Kristen Wiig’s Penelope and Keenan Thompson’s prisoner from Scared Straight.

Overall, I had a lot of fun with the episode, Weekend Update had me laughing pretty hard at this Sarah McLachlan bit that makes fun of those ridiculously sad dog commercials she does. If you’ve seen them, you know what I mean.

One thing I was a bit surprised by was how much Andy Samberg was in this episode. It seemed like he had taken a bit of a back seat lately, but he was in nearly every skit it seemed like, which is always good.

  1. Haha! Megan and I were talking about how bad a job we thought she did as host and I didn't even think that Bizarro Me would love it, but of course you did.To be fair, it wasn't a bad episode, I just didn't think she was very good (beyond the monologue, she killed that). I think it was telling how many of the "big gun" recurring characters that you mentioned were on, because I think that probably had to do with the folks at SNL realizing she needed to be carried to a good show.

  2. She was definitely awkward in the Scared Straight sketch. A more apt title for this post would have been "The Taylor Swift Episode of SNL Was Pretty Good," though I thought she did a great job in the Firelight video.
