    Was it the typical walkthrough the guts of SNL or Wiigs horrible singing that ruined the monologue?

    Da fuq? Jodi Arias and Bengazi awful mashup and then a Ariel Castro throw in.


    absolutely agree . that was just a strait up gagglef--k by the writers.Almost no laughs during the whole skit.


    On a related topic, does anyone else think the REAL Jodi Arias is mirror image of Fred Armisen as the Taram's Japanese girlfriend in the J-POP talk show skit. (Who also happens to to also exactly look like Fred's past skit performances as "Ugky Betty")!

    Loved the monologue.

    I know Up All Night has been off the air since December but surely, Maya isn't pregnant again. Is she?

    Man even I could see how annoying Californians can be even though I chuckled a few times.

    Casting Kristen Wiig as a dead-chick ghost who scares people. Sounds like great casting to me.

    Disney skit was boosted by the fact that I could actually see Disney doing that, and Wiig was perfect.

    Sounds like Wiig is on track to ace out Bieber for hosting the worst show of the season.

    Enjoying the show so far, besides The Californians and the opening skit which were awful, I think it is a solid show, I always enjoy the Lawrence Welk show for some reason.
