Highlights from Last Night's Punchless Vince Vaughn Hosted "Saturday Night Live"

If you like Bill Hader's Pacino impression, there's plenty of it in this commercial for a series of biopics starring Pacino. The impression is great; the commercial is not.

Easily the best sketch of the night was History of Punk, a "Behind the Music"-like documentary exploring a Johnny-Rotten-like punk rocker whose affection for Margaret Thatcher derailed his career.

The Brad Paisley/LL Cool J segment on Weekend Update discussing "Accidental Racist" was great, as were the always reliable Seth Meyers' headline jokes.

The only other sketch worth mentioning was Last Call, the same sketch that ended Louis C.K.'s episode. It is suitably gross for the final sketch. It does not, however, measure up to Louis C.K.'s version.

There was a sketch that didn't make the show, and it's probably the second best of the night (and easily better than the Pacino commercial they used instead). Here's Bathroom Cobra.
