After a string of so-so episodes (and some downright unfunny ones), SNL may be getting its groove back. Last week's Jim Carrey episode was better than average, and this weekend's was actually pretty darn funny. They started with a strong cold opening, making fun of FOX "News" trying to be civil. The monologue was okay, with Gwyneth Paltrow--who is currently starring in a movie as a country singer--acting like she knows nothing about country music, and Weekend Update was funny too. Those three elements make or break any SNL episode. Some of the other skits were hit-or-miss, but over all, a decent show.
The SNL Digital Short with Pee Wee Herman was weird, but was the highlight of the show.
