Save for Timberlake/ GaGa, the past few season finales have been weird and this was definitely the theme tonight. This finale reminded me of Baldwin/ Petty, bad use of a good host with such bland and weird original sketches. I am done with the porn girls, it was ok the first time only. Am I the only one who got a Baldwin Swim Awards sketch vibe from the Gay Camp sketch? The only thing I really liked was the film that ended Update. Kanye freaked me out and this was his second worst performance before his 08 one. His '10 one was actually enjoyable.
This season started out with new and original ideas that were beaten to death by the second half of the season (Porn Girls, Maine Justice, Rude Employees, Regine, Last Call) in order to create new characters. In my opinion it was one of the worst seasons I've seen, not on 94-95 level but comparable to 09-10. Such an uneven season with Wiig just thrown in at the end. So many episodes felt like filler, with Vaughn and Levitt being the best examples of this. Here's my ranking of the whole season from best to worst.
