Web Watch has just finished watching this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live episode starring Gerard Butler. THIS WEEK’S EPISODE CONTINUED TO PROVE THAT THE SHOW CAN BE FUNNY if they have a host that is versatile.
As is often the case, some of the skits were hit-or-miss. Opening monologue and the Beauty and the Beast sketch were amusing, as is what usually happens when the cast throws some comedic music into the mix.
We enjoyed Weekend Update as always, and Keenan’s “What’s Up With That” bit was worth the effort the cast put into it (we’ll see that one again, we hope). Butler may not have been the strongest host they’ve had, but he certainly didn’t embarass himself – and he showed that he was willing to do anything for a laugh. No complaints about him at all. The lack of Andy Samberg and an SNL Digital Short is a different issue, but we don’t have time to get into that today.
