    Gwyneth has been underwhelming, to say the least, so far. Cold open was awful and saved only by Bill Hader's truly demented take on James Carville.

    Digital short, however, was brilliant.

    I chuckled a few times at that bar mitzvah skit, esp at the Jay-Z part. Also, Anderson Cooper sitting on that Pee Wee Herman chair was funny.

    Ron White is on Comedy Central... I made the switch.

    Okay, this was an interesting way to transition into the musical performance. Cee-Lo is one odd-looking dude, though.

    Digital short got cut short here. Went straight to an iPad commercial.

    Okay... loved the Shakespeare bit. Silencing your hawks, absolutely no recording of the play, and:

    "Let's all go to the lobby... let's all go to the lobby... let's all go to the lobby and eat some boiled duck!"

    "Aw, HELL NAY!"

    This Fresh Prince of Bel-Air DVD extras bit is fucking HILARIOUS.

    This guy playing Will Smith has stolen every bit he's been in. Who is it? How long has he been on? I haven't watched SNL in a while obviously.

    That's Jay Pharaoh. He was added to the cast as a featured player at the beginning of this season.

    Speaking of featured players, Paul Brittain looked an awful lot like Neil Everett in that SportsCenter Deportes parody. Not what they were going for, I'm sure.

    As mentioned, joined this season. Pharoah also does a dead-on Denzel Washington, Eddie Murray, and more. He has a Barack Obama that he's done in his stand-up, but they haven't done it in the show yet.

    Pharoah is the best guy they've added in decades. Mild exaggeration, maybe, but I don't remember someone who killed every single time out of the gate.
