If Drake's New Year's resolution was to serve double duty as host and musical guest for the first episode of Saturday Night Live of 2014 and set the bar so high for the rest of the year for any other hosts/musical guests, well then he definitely hit his goal by January 18, 2014. Mazel Tov, Dracob! Drake was not only willing to poke fun at himself and acknowledge his humble beginnings on Degrassi, but the music star gave it all whether he was performing his own songs or being the best part of just about every sketch he appeared in (like when he fit in effortlessly to "Mornin' Miami" or was the saving grace of "Poetry Teacher.") It may be a little too early to tell fellow charming song-and-dance man Justin Timberlake to step aside, but Drake's presence feels fresh and funny and honestly I wouldn't mind seeing him back again…and again…and again. Here, now, is the best and worst of Drake's SNL:
Any Anna Faris fan who saw What's Your Number? (or didn't because of its terrible reviews) and watched Saturday Night Live this weekend probably went into the show with the hope that it wouldn't suck -- after all, we don't just like her in vain, right? I personally got affirmation watching the episode, and laughed more than I have at SNL in a while. That's not to say a few sketches failed from a sore lack of editing (looking at you, "Wyndemere" and "GOP Debate II"), but all in all, the episode was a relieving surprise. In the spirit of Ms. Faris, here at the sketches that delivered more laughs than her entire last movie did.
