The much anticipated hosting duties of Bryan Cranston on SNL came to pass this weekend, and it... didn't go very well. Cranston was barely used at all, and when he was it was for stupid crap like dancing in his underwear or asking if we got a bottle of sparkling apple juice 900 times. It was a very sad missed opportunity. It was also as bad as January Jones' episode, but at least that week they had an excuse in how inherently unfunny and unwilling to try to be funny she so clearly is. So what is this week's excuse? Bryan Cranston is a very funny and versatile actor! They could have done so many great things with him! Anyway. Here are the few highs and many lows of the episode.
So Betty White finally hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and she manned up and kicked ass in actually live sketches, including one that relied entirely on about 97 jokes about how her vagina is gross, and brought in mega ratings, all while remaining admirably gracious throughout the episode. She threw herself into it, and everything went fine, which is really more than you can ask of an 88-year-old woman at midnight. Bravo.
