<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: The Best and Worst of John Goodman

John Goodman deserved so much better than this. The veteran actor and Saturday Night Live host (this weekend marked his 13th time as emcee at Studio 8H) was subjected to a mediocre episode that felt dated, at best. In fact, most of the sketches (with the exception of the exceptional H&M commercial and the uproarious Guy Fieri commercial) looked like they could have been on SNL during the heyday of Roseanne. I'm tawkin' to you, "Three Wise Guys" sketch featuring Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone that bummed me out even more than the trailers for Grudge Match. (Wait, that's not true). While I'll always love Goodman (who doesn't?!) and Kings of Leon made for pretty decent musical guests, this episode felt like as depressing as grown-ups regretting their decision to dance around as snowflakes in a Christmas pageant. Here are the best and worst moments from this weekend's ep.

<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: The Best and Worst of Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga and her giant, unblinking eyes served as both host and musical guest on this weekend's Saturday Night Live. The main themes of the episode seemed to be Gaga poking fun of herself poking fun at other celebrities, and who could forget (no, really, just try and scrub it from your memory), simulating sex with R. Kelly on live television. She was, unsurprisingly, an enthusiastic performer and gave her first hosting effort her best (she's appeared as a musical guest and had cameos on the show before), but the episode still provided way more moments of discomfort than actual laughs, not to mention all the mixed messages. Was she actually showing us her true colors, or as she suggested in the opening monologue, just pandering to all of us? Either way, it worked, because Gaga earned season-high ratings. Here are the best and worst moments from her episode:

An SNL cast member is getting their own show and it's probably not who you'd expect.
