A Decent Saturday Night Live? Our Fondest Christmas Wish Was Granted

It's been quite some time since I was actually still thinking about an SNL episode two days after it aired. Not just one funny sketch, but a whole episode. And while I'm not going to say that every sketch was a winner, there were some pretty amusing things, and even the lame sketches weren't as bad as some of the ones earlier this season, so good for SNL. Way to end the year on a high note, though I presume this means that the next three episodes will suck since they used all the good material here. Whatever, I'll take the funny where I can get it. I could have lived without the general store (though Jeff Bridges' hair made up for a lot of lame jokes), Jeff's prank show (though again, Bridges' enthusiasm helped), the Hanukkah It's a Wonderful Life (not as funny as the Vincent Price sketches) and Brad Pitt doing the weather. But there was Stefon, a catchy Lonely Island song, Miley and Julian Assange and bonus Cookie Monster!

By now you've probably heard "I Just Had Sex", but really, give it another go. I feel you need to watch it at least twice to fully appreciate Serena van der Woodsen's "singing" and Jessica Alba's artfully arranged ponytail.

I don't care how many times he does it, Bill Hader just nails this Julian Assange impression. And he managed to get in some good jokes about Zuckerberg's "Person of the Year" title along the way.

It's Crunkmas! I'm easy. They had me with their Metrodome joke.

Stefon, Snooki and Governor Patterson. Are we gonna smoosh, or what?

Miley Cyrus and Nick Nolte talk about doing the drugs. It's... pretty cool.

And here's the full episode. I recommend zipping through to watch Bridges and Cookie Monster during the opening monologue. Behold, the power of the internet.
