    For all the deserved bashing the show got last week - it was 10 times better this week. Top sketch was the NY Times briefing reporters going to Alaska to dig into Sarah Palin, but there were at least four others that did a good job of tying in current events/pop culture. And the writing was much tighter. Maybe there is hope after all. I don't know why they had guest-host James Franco play Agent "4:20." It seems like that had potential to be a character they re-use. And I wish they made Bill Hader's sarcastic voice-over guy a regular character.

    Totally agree.

    Hammond finally has another political candidate his voice nails.

    Plus, this was tremendous:

    Only saw these on Hulu and I definitely agree. Of mice and men had potential, but wasn't written well enough.

    Also thought the McCain opening could have been funnier. McCain's reactions to the claims in the commercials could have been stronger.

    Kristen Wiig's wolf-woman was funny, though.

    Any shot at Kwame McThug is a good one...

    The funniest skit was definitely the Alaska briefing one. Bill Hader was hilarious.

    They should just show reruns from the early- to mid-90s.

    If they did that, you'd be watching the ones from early- to mid-80s.

    Pretty solid show, and 4:20 was a pretty solid rip from "Pineapple Express."
    My money's on Rogen hosting around Halloween, when "Zack & Miri Make a Porno" comes out.
