My friend's verdict: "They keep putting Lindsay in red wigs. I think she should take the hint."

She wasn't as bad as I feared, but she was a little glazed over in a few of the scenes. She looked downright distracted/unhappy in the "scared straight" scene. But I don't mean to be overly critical; she wasn't any worse than many other hosts.

I don't really know what the point was -- I guess Lorne was being generous to her, but it sort of feels like the whole cast, and the whole TV audience, had to smile politely and wait for his grand gesture to be done before getting back to the real show. But I suppose that's no different than having to put up with Steven Seagall or whatever. I know I spent most of the time on edge though, rather than enjoying it.

I thought the stuff she WASN'T in, or didn't speak in, was hilarious. We LOVED the Psychics' Award Show, the Chantix commercial, and Weekend Update.

The opening sketch with Shepard Smith as Norman Bates killed me. I love Bill Hader.

I also found this to be hysterical as well as his appearance as James Carville on Weekend Update. Bill Hader really walked away with this episode.

I thought her opening monologue addressing her past troubles was fine, but I really think the Scared Straight skit was overkill and bordering on unnecessarily humiliating. Also not funny - except when they all broke up at the end.

I met an actress who played Belle at Disneyworld and the dirt she gave me was anyone playing one of the Princesses took that title way too seriously. So yeah I loved that sketch.

In the Disney sketch, I laughed SO hard when all those little hands went to high-five Snow White at the same time.

I'm biased due to a general dislike of Jonah Hill, but with the exception of a couple of sketches (including the opening pre-taped bit attached to the monologue, and my current fave "J-Pop America Fun Time Now"), the whole episode seemed like a steaming pile of "meh" to me. Okay, some credit to how much they committed to the Coolio bit.

If my father were still around I suspect he would love those Benihana sketches.

I'm going to hell for laughing at that last joke in the Limbaugh sketch.

I havent had a chance to watch the show yet, but saw One Direction's first performance on YouTube, and is that what passes for boyband choreography these days? I really want to send them a copy of Darren's Dance Grooves.

They were just terrible. I wasn't fond of the show as a whole, either.

Almost Pizza was laugh-out-loud hilarious and inspired, though.

I did like that. It reminded me of the "That's Not Yogurt" fake ad from twenty years ago.

Whoa, I don't remember that Yogurt ad, they really are very similar.

I liked the Pantene ad, Kristen's Drew Barrymore was great, but I think Gilly is my most hated recurrent sketch.

The whole time the boy band was on stage we were thinking about the Ghetto Avenue Boys' top hit "You've Got It (What You've Got Is It)". In other news, I am so old.

Wiig swore they had retired Gilly. I wonder if they were just really, REALLY dry for ideas for something Sofia Vergara could do that didn't require too much talking.

There are rumors that Kristen Wiig will be leaving the show at the end of this season, so she may be trotting out all of her assorted characters one last time before she goes, which would explain why we had to suffer through another Gilly installment. I never liked the Gilly skit in the first place, but Will Forte's deep-voiced "GIIIIIIILLY" always amused me and was sadly missed.

In addition to Wiig, Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg are also reportedly mulling leaving. Sudeikis I can understand since he is building a film career. But Samberg makes no sense to me; he hasn't made much of an impression in the films that he's appeared in, and SNL provides a huge platform for his work with The Lonely Island. I guess he could just be ready to move on after seven seasons in the cast.

I watched the Daniel Radcliffe rerun yesternight, and it's the first time in years where I laughed my ass off at everything! The Spin the Bottle film where he ends up always landing on a random homeless guy had me howling so loudly! I almost couldn't breathe watching that ridiculous clip. The Delaware Fellas sketch was adorable, and the Weekend Update bit with Daniel as Casey Anthony's new dog was hilarious! Lana Del Ray was painful though. So much secondhand embarrassment for her.

No shout out to Chris Parnell and "Lazy Sunday" in the 100th Digital Short? Glaring omission. (I may have a long-held unusual celebrity crush on Chris Parnell.)

Since that was the very first Digital Short of all time, I also found it to be an odd omission. Perhaps Parnell was busy, or there's some sort of bad blood there.

Was it? I thought they had done a few before it.

Loved the opening with Biden and Bush as BFFs.

"Lettuce" was the first Digital Short, but gets overshadowed by the awesomeness of "Lazy Sunday," which was the second.

I also liked the Biden/Bush opening sketch. It's the funniest, most successful opening political sketch they've done all season.

That answers why there was no Lazy sunday shout out kast week.

Did Lorne owe Jan Werner a favor? That's the only reason I can figure he'd give Mick Jagger's corpse the hosting gig on the fricken season finale. That's the kind of spot you give to a 5-timer like Jon Hamm, who was obviously available.

A weak ending to a good season and probably a few SNL careers.
