Saturday Night Live: Gaga for Lady Gaga

<I>Saturday Night Live</I>: Gaga for Lady Gaga

In comparison with last week's season premiere, this week's Ryan Reynolds-hosted episode was a vast improvement. Lady Gaga appeared as musical guest (and got some screen time in sketches), while Madonna, Elijah Wood, and Reynolds' wife Scarlett Johansson also made the SNL rounds.

When I saw that Ryan Reynolds would be hosting, I knew that this episode would be better simply because of his comedic ability (of course coupled with his Adonis-like arms). Here's the best and worst of this week's episode.

Andy Samberg threw it on the ground in a new Digital Short:

This horrible mess of a Family Feud sketch was incredibly offensive. Suffice it to say that it involved a lot of Mackenzie Phillips/John Phillips "jokes" It should have been saved for the last minute or cut out entirely. Watch at your own risk:

Her Madgesty appeared on Deep House Dish alongside Lady Gaga, but it was hella awkward and the jokes fell flat when Madonna's mic seemed to be not working. The funniest thing in the entire sketch was the song "Status Update." Danny McCooz is heading to Costco...

Scarlett Johansson reprised her role as a porcelain-fountain shilling Jersey Girl in this sketch. They seem to recycle this sketch with other items -- last time it was marble columns and before that it was chandeliers. Or vice versa.

Uh-oh. Lady Gaga and Andy Samberg wore the same outfit:

Overall, this was a much-welcome improvement upon last week's premiere, and hopefully Drew Barrymore will continue this upward momentum on next week's installment.
