In case you were wondering why Ben Affleck was randomly tapped to host the season finale of Saturday Night Live despite the post-Oscar glow of his Argo victory having long since worn off, the almost immediate disappearance of his Terrence Malick adventure To the Wonder from theaters and the absence of any new projects in his career pipeline, the answer lies in the fact that this episode marked the departure of Bill Hader and his popular Stefon alter ego from Studio 8H. (Also Fred Armisen, but c'mon... he shoulda left three seasons ago.)
You wouldn't know it based on that terrible episode of Saturday Night Live that aired over the weekend, but Jonah Hill is a pretty funny guy. Superbad? Hysterical. Get Him to the Greek? Not a great movie, but he's amusing in it. The Sitter? Ditto. 21 Jump Street? You'll have to wait until Friday to get our verdict on that one. Anyway, the point is that Hill is usually on his game, even when the material around him is sub-par. But that wasn't the case on Saturday night -- not only did most of the skits themselves fail to click, but Hill also seemed distracted and disinterested much of the time. Here are our picks for which sketches were merely bad... and which were superbad.
