    This is old school Jim Carey at the moment. Not bad, but not great. It just seems like a trip back to In Living Color.

    The commercial parodies generally hit more often than not, and "The Very Worst of Soul Train" was pretty funny.

    Never heard of or heard The Black Keys until tonight. I love them.

    Carey's character was the best. So creepy.

    And the sex advice tape ad was ok — until the Angry Ganesh, which caught me totally off guard and rewinding the PVR to watch it again. And laugh.

    Dear lord, Bill Hader-as-John-Boehner sounds like Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion when he cries.

    I thought the same thing. Immediately.

    Jim Carrey's impression of Alan Thicke had me in tears.

    And the Black Keys didn't disappoint. Great performance.

    As for the episode....meh... a C+.

    But that Alan Thicke impression still has me chuckling. I wish they would have done an entire Growing Pains skit just because of it.

    The Alan Thicke impression was the funniest thing on SNL in years. Who would even think to do such an impression? Genius.

    Welcome back, rock 'n' roll, huh?

    Awesome performance by an awesome band.

    I've been a casual fan for a few years, ever since the comparisons to the White Stripes began. They also did the theme song for "Hung" on HBO.

    Have a feeling after last night I'm about to become more than a casual fan. That was tight.

    "NOBODY DOES A THICKE!!" Pretty good stuff.
    That and the "Worst of Soul Train" were the best parts by far.

    It was so obscure... made the skit more awesome.

    OMG, just now watching the Jon Hamm one from Halloween on my DVR. He does a REALLY good Robin Williams. And I laughed out loud at Wiig's Jennifer Tilly.
