    About time the 'Nard dog showed up. He was at least three to four years due for a hosting stint.

    More like two, but I'm glad he's finally here.

    Fun fact of the day: Paul Simon is the first musical guest to perform on SNL in five different decades.

    So, nobody has anything to say about the Nard Dawg? Or Rhymin' Simon?

    What Animal House was to John Belushi, The Hangover is to Ed Helms: a breakout movie hit to each that provided raunchy fun to their audiences.

    Hilarous seeing Ed Helms baton-twirling to "Eye of the Tiger".

    "What Up Wit Dat?" is just never funny to me. It's the same stupid stuff every time. Oddly, the only thing that I find humorous is JS in the red jogging suit-- he's my least favorite performer on the show.

    But cool to see Chris Colfer from "Glee."

    That cold open was excellent. Reminded me of the great Bushwacked sketch where Dubya Sr. proves he's not a wimp

    Paul Simon was hilarious as the guest interrupted by what's up with that and the swan song of this bit having the real Lindsey Buckingham come out perhaps it's the end of this sketch.

    We can only hope. I heard Kristen has retired the Penelope and Gilly characters, so maybe this sketch is done now, too.
