Highlights from "Saturday Night Live": Ummm, "Weekend Update" Was Pretty Good

By Dustin Rowles | TV Reviews | October 16, 2011 | Comments ()


As for the highlights. They were thin. In fact, there were only two highlights really worth checking out. The first was another GOP debate skit, and mostly because Jason Sudeikis is a phenomenal Mitt Romney and Keenan Thompson holds his own as Herman Cain.

The other was "Weekend Update," not for the segments, but for Seth Meyers' headlines, easily the biggest highlight of last night's show. The video-game joke killed.

The rest of the show was kind of terrible. I'll include the Digital Short, however, because it's educational for the seriously unhip folks like myself. It's a series of interviews with Drake, the musical guest. I had to look him up because I had no idea who Drake was. Apparently, he was discovered by Lil' Wayne, and what's funny is that he sounds exactly like Lil' Wayne, but he looks like he walked off the set of a Nickelodeon show.

Here's one of his performances, if you want to see him in action.He also ended up being in nearly as many skits as Faris last night, which either says something about his star power or Faris' lack thereof.

Finally, I'll include the Lifetime Game Show because it had a few decent lines, although I'd hardly call it remarkable.
