The last new episode of Saturday Night Live in 2015 hit the air last night, and with it came two favorite cast members returning to Studio 8H as hosts. However, despite the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler both pulled hosting duties last night for the usually delightful episode that happens just before Christmas, this episode just didn’t quite pack the punch that it should have. There were still some solid sketches and a couple of cool surprises, but overall, this was just an average episode.
We review each and every sketch from the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Saturday Night Live episode below!
Meet Your Second Wife – Game show concepts are hit or miss on Saturday Night Live, but this one was wholly original, sharp and just plain funny. Though there were some technical difficulties in the live broadcast with the audio cues for the intro, once everything was in order and the game was revealed, the sketch was great. And what’s great is that even after the first gag, the second and third reveals were got progressively funnier. Just a great sketch all around.
Tina & Amy’s Dope Squad – In what is basically a parody of Taylor Swift’s music video for Bad Blood that showcases all her famous friends, Amy and Tina show off their squad composed of nannies, gynecologists (I hope that’s actually their real gynecologist) and other assorted ladies, including Amy Schumer. Also, that bit about actually shooting a slow-motion post-apocalyptic walk is great.
