    Ben Stiller may be one of the most overrated comedy actors of the last 15 years, but at least he tried hard and tried to play a variety of characters in his latest SNL stint. I laughed at some things, but nothing was really that memorable tonight and in a weird way that is what is going to stand out for me.

    I don't think he'll be the worst host of the season by any stretch, but it won't be hard to top this. He tried hard, but it wasn't a creative show and outside of a few moments, not even a funny one.moreless
