Anyone else feel like Saturday Night Live needs to work harder on its cold open/opening monologue combos?
I wonder how many folks tuned out after this week’s dismal one-two punch — a laugh-free and utterly toothless look at the Eric Garner grand jury decision and a James Franco intro that felt like an afterthought — and wound up missing several solid sketches (and a few incredibly weird ones) in the subsequent hour.
The star of the upcoming comedy The Interview got a couple of assists during the episode from his pal Seth Rogen (as well as musical guest Nicki Minaj), and his range — nailing Christopher Walken’s turgid Capt. Hook, capturing the rage of a mayoral candidate who lost an election to a toddler, and adding to the laughs of the closing “Former Porn Stars” bit — was impressive.
Below, my picks for the week’s best and worst.
BEST: PETER PAN LIVE!
