    Ok with this short I've lost all count of the cameos. It has to be at least 6 by now.

    8 with Liam Neeson?
    I was thinking Liam was 7 but then again, I'm not really counting.

    Gasteyer, Forte, Beaver, Portman, Hamm, Usher, Timberlake, Neeson by my count. I have no idea who the 3rd dude was w/ Andy & Justice Beaver on the short.

    I was wondering the same thing though it was great to see Usher participate in it.

    I take it was all intro, which is disappointing. The cameos got me consumed right now, honestly.

    You forgot Bolton which would indeed make it 8...actually 9...

    I'm getting a Phil Hartman vibe on this Hader impression.

    I thought that was Hamm in a wig. Twitter does say Bolton numerous times.

    If Darrell Hammond doesn't show up as Sean Connery, the latter probably won't happen....

    They just showed about maybe 3 seconds of the goodnights with Ferrell mentioning Neeson and that was it.

    How can such a small cast feel like it has too many cast members?? Seems like only a few actually had speaking lines; McKinnon had no lines. Lot of Sudeikis & Wiig in this one.

    WOW, Was this show phoned in. It's almost as if they were torn between Will Ferrell Best of 4 or Cast Members returning for almost no reason.

    8 Minutes after I saw it, I'm trying to remember any of it.

    I Guess I Liked:
    - Really?

    Is it just me, or did Will Ferrell have a cold tonight? Also, his Dubya wasn't quite right.
    Seriously, Is ESPN Classics that popular? I Seriously missed the boat there.
    Would've rather had an All Gay Celebrity Jeopardy than Culps but whatever. Also wish they had a Neil Diamond sketch but whatever.
    I thought Get In the Cage was done when Nick Cage came on, Guess not. Notice how he didn't mention the Declaration of Independance?
    I don't know if "Party People" (That's what I'm calling the people from that last sketch) needed an encore but I guess they need Kristens characters to wrap up?
    Wow, Will's hair grows fast. I saw him clean shaven for 30 Rocks live show.

    I went to bed after Update. Sounds like it was a good decision.
