After a week of buildup Lindsay Lohan took the stage for SNL. She did…ok. Not great, but not terrible. She had some trouble remembering her lines, but it was more the material she was given or rather not given to work with. She seemed to have less lines than most hosts and the sketches just weren’t that funny, especially when given the endless well of things they could have chosen to make fun of. There weren’t any cocaine or party sketches, but there were a few winners and a great performance by Jack White.
The opening monologue gave Lindsay the one chance to really make fun of herself and address the concerns about having her host. She got help from Kenan Thomson, Kristen Wiig, Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm who was there as a back-up host just in case.
Hands down the best sketch of the night was the Disney Housewives, which re-imagined the Bravo show with Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel and Jasmine. Kristen Wiig steals the sketch as the drunken, gossipy Cinderella married to Prince Charming, a man more interested in shoes than anything else.
So you know what everyone is talking about, here is the Scared Straight sketch where Lindsay has some trouble remembering her lines.
Alright, it’s not Lohan, but it was funny. Bill Hader hit Weekend Update as James Carville to comment on Rush Limbaugh, the GOP candidates and Newt Gingrich. “I thought I killed him 15 years ago!” He also puts on lipstick and describes his genitalia. I don’t think he’s ever had this much fun before.
