    A Natalie Cole "Unforgettable" riff in Tina Fey's monologue and Michael Bolton on the digital short. Outstanding. 1991 in the house.

    Meh. Fey did fine, but I wasn't that excited by a shitload of pregnancy comedy.

    And I can't believe Meyers didn't cash in on his turn at the correspondent's dinner dais the night before bin Laden went down. No mention of it? No connection with Obama's expression after his bin Laden joke? C'mon, Seth.

    Nice to see Hammond, Fey and Rudolph - but pretty underwhelming, considering the news of the last few weeks and SNL being off. Better to bring Hammond out with a Trump rebuttal to last week's WHCD - the "debate" thing flatlined and was nothing more than an excuse to put Fey in the Palin get-up.

    The bin Laden skits were pretty lame.

    Best Lonely Island song ever. Bolton=winning... Pirates Of The Carribean 4 should use this for the trailer music

    The digital short was hysterical, though the problem is they've set the standard for those videos so high, it's hard for them to reach it anymore.

    Who knew Bolton's true calling was writing rap song hooks?

    Haven't watched it all yet.

    The opening was a purely lazy effort. I thought they should do something with Palin as the leader of Seal Team Six.

    I agree - meh. I know it was the Mother's Day show (as Tina helpfully pointed out in the opening) but yeah, too much pregnancy humor. There was so much material this week that they could have done a better job with. I agree that the opening was lazy and, as usual, went on for too long. And I'm wondering if the powers that be at NBC had anything to do with the lack of Trump hammering. The rest of the cast needs to step up and work on impressions. Too much Fred Armisen. Michael Bolton was outstanding.

    I'll just add my name to the chorus of Bolton lovers. That was awesome.

    The other highlight of the night was Maya Rudolph's giant pubic wig.

    Bill Hader as city correspondent Stefon is the best SNL news guest since anything Adam Sandler did. Absolutely hilarious. I don't even mind that he struggles to stop laughing mid-skit two or three times, which makes it even better.
