It's hard to believe the SNL season is almost at an end, but The Hangover and Office star Ed Helms helped ease us into the idea with a light, fun, generally likable penultimate episode. And musical guest Paul Simon wasn't the only legend (musical or otherwise) at 30 Rock this weekend. Check out the must-watch sketches of the night:
"The Ambiguously Gay Duo" with special appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Jon Hamm, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell.
If those names together don't get you giddy, then you're in the wrong place. This is one extra-special sketch SNL
fans will be talking about for a long time. But it makes me wonder: How can they top it in next weekend's season finale?
Weekend Update: Garth and Kat.
I love Garth and Kat, don't you? Between this and Bridesmaids
, if Best Week Ever
was still on TV, I'd bet that Kristen Wiig is having the "vest ... I mean BEST ... Week EVER!"
What's Up With That? with the real Lindsey Buckingham and Glee's Chris Colfer.
A lot of people seem to think that this sketch is on its very last legs. I wouldn't be upset if this is the way they chose to close the curtain on "What's Up With That?": With a final solid sketch and the ultimate guest appearance.
Ann-Margret Tries to Throw Away a Wad of Paper Into the Trashcan: There was also a lot of bizarreness in Saturday's episode, made all the more palatable and endearing thanks to Ed Helms, the adorable everyman host. I like when the SNL writers push themselves, and the audience, into weirder, less obvious territory, and so I appreciated this sketch quite a lot.
Next Week: Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga. What did you think of Ed Helms at the SNL helm this weekend?
