Donald Glover Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend brought Donald Glover to Saturday Night Live to make his debut as both host and musical guest (under his Childish Gambino hip-hop moniker). Glover is no stranger to NBC having starred in Community and written for 30 Rock, but he also auditioned for SNL a couple times. And when you see how well he does in this outstanding episode of SNL, you’re going to wonder why he never made the cut as a cast member.

Donald Glover was a fantastic host, playing a wide variety of characters, including his Lando Calrissian from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Plus, he was able to display his signature musical skills in a number of sketches. There really are a lot of highs from this episode, and the low isn’t even all that bad.

After writing for Saturday Night Live from 2008 to 2013, comedian John Mulaney returned to Studio 8H as one of the rare hosts who had only written on the sketch series rather than being a full fledged cast member. Due to his time spent on SNL, Mulaney had no problem with some of the issues that first-time hosts can struggle with, such as performing live, reading cue cards and hitting marks, but it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing.

Even though John Mulaney knew exactly what he was doing, that doesn’t mean the show was without hiccups here and there. Like any regular episode of SNL, there were good sketches, and there were bad sketches, but the former were so disappointing simply because of the potential by having Mulaney as host. Mulaney’s awkwardly charming personality helps elevate some of the sketches, but otherwise, this felt like a mostly middling episode in the laughs department.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the John Mulaney hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

Chadwick Boseman Hosted Saturday Night Live

Whenever anyone says Saturday Night Live isn’t funny anymore, it’s because they tuned in on a night when the writers and cast didn’t come together for a good episode, and they used that as a judgment for the entire series. And anyone who tuned into this weekend’s episode with Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman hosting for the first time certainly got fuel for that misguided fire.

Chadwick Boseman did a decent enough job hosting the show, but overall this was a supremely disappointing episode, especially in the second half after Weekend Update. After that, the show completely went off the rails and could barely muster a chuckle in some of the worst sketches I’ve seen in a long time. So where did SNL go wrong this weekend? Find out as we recap the best and worst sketches in the Chadwick Boseman hosted Saturday Night Live.
