    So far, the ongoing Back to the Future skit is awesome.

    Other than that ... nothing.

    Vincent Price Halloween party? Seriously? How old do these writers think their demographic is?

    I Didn't Ask For This was awesome.

    DVR-ing. Hoping for the return of Jeff Montgomery, Sex Offender.

    I forget the name of the new guy that did Eddie Murphy, but Jeebus Cripes... this guy is GOOD! He's the same one who did the Will Smith impression a few weeks back.

    It was almost like Fred Armisen was channeling Paul Lynde instead of Liberace, but Vincent Price was a hilarious sketch at times.

    And Denzel Washington working the Macy's counter. I'm kicking myself for not setting the DVR, because I've been watching for that guy every week.

    The one guy's Alan Alda impersonation was pretty damn good, too.

    Jay Pharoah is the new guy. He's fantastic.

    The Back to the Future skit was a ripoff from a Star Wars one they did awhile back with Kevin Spacey. Both sketches were awesome.

    Actually, I think the first "screen test" parody they did was for Pulp Fiction when Samuel L. Jackson hosted in 1997. You had Jerry Mathers (Darrell Hammond), Ann B. Davis (Ana Gasteyer) and Burt Reynolds (Norm MacDonald) all reading for the part of Vincent Vega, and Walter Cronkite (Hammond) as The Gimp. MacDonald also played Quentin Tarantino.

    That episode was also notable because it was the first one after MacDonald was fired from Weekend Update (but remained in the cast), and had Will Ferrell's first appearance as Harry Caray. I had it on a VHS tape for years.

    Pete - Actually, I'm not that old (40yo) and I usually love the Vincent Price bits. Hader nails it and, usually, they're hilarious.

    Now, having said that... yeah... last night's was flat. I was disappointed.

    I thought The Return of Shy Ronnie was pretty awesome, if for nothing else than Jon Hamm's awesome look when Rhianna leads him out of the bank. But I also really appreciate Rhianna's willingness to poke fun at her gimmick of being the chick who sings the hook on every rapper's macho track.

    Hader was nails (as usual) Wiig was overused (a/u). I wish they found a way to incorporate more impressions into skits. Hader's Alda was scary good, not enough Nasim Pedrad for me. The back half of the show wasn't very good.
