The World Series is currently in full swing for Major League Baseball. A Jon Hamm-hosted episode of “Saturday Night Live” may not qualify as important as a game between the Giants/Rangers, but one could make the argument that for their respective audiences, there’s as much excitement surrounding each. Hamm’s first appearance on the show blew people’s minds. The second confirmed that his first outing wasn’t a fluke. Will the third time be as charming as Don Draper himself? (You know, when he’s not in a drunken haze stealing ideas post-Clio Awards.)
Musical guest Rihanna will also appear tonight. Sadly, that probably rules out another installment of “Hamm and Buble,” though I must confess than I prefer my pork covered in Nutella…ella…ella…ay…ay…ay. Last time out, Rihanna rocked out with “Shy Ronnie,” proving she had comic as well as musical chops. Hamm + Rihanna sounds pretty harmonious on paper. But how will it play out? Onto the breakdown!
