Would a couple eventful weeks and a beloved host lead to a funny show?
Feels like forever and a day since the last time “Saturday Night Live” has aired a new episode. And it’s not exactly hyperbole that the world has significantly changed since then. “SNL” hasn’t been exactly breaking out it’s “A” game this season in the arena of politics, so it will be interesting to see how they handle the death of Osama bin Laden. That, plus host Tina Fey, makes this a potentially landmark show.
And yes, that’s probably more wishful thinking than anything resembling reality. But it’s positive wishful thinking, so that has to count for something, right? As always, I’ll be grading each sketch as it airs. In addition: Elliot Gould makes his musical debut on the show! [What? Oh, my bad. I misread the press release. It’s Ellie Goulding making her debut tonight.]
Onto the recap!
