  • Halfway decent episode.. some parts fall flat.

    As most Saturday Night Live episodes to this day, there were some pretty funny parts and a whole lot of disappointing half skits that could have potential if the writing wasn't so juvenile and.. well, I guess there's no other word for it then stupid.

    First off, I liked the cold open, with Obama interviewing all the tv channels. I especially like Bill Hader's section, with Obama interviewing Dateline. Very funny stuff. I also liked Darrell Hammond bringing back Bill Clinton and Andy Samburg as Shep. The belly button comment was entertaining, mostly because I wasn't expecting it. And I suppose the Megan Fox cameo wasn't too bad either.

    However, I still think Kenan Thompson is horrific in the show and that some of the interviews fell flat. The David Paterson one didn't feel as funny as they wanted it to unfortunately, so it simply dragged on.

    Hopefully the regular Saturday Night Live episodes are better then the Weekend Updates have been
