Leonardo DiCaprio's Cameo Upstaged by the Two Porn Stars on Last Night's Jonah Hill Hosted 'SNL'

Last night’s SNL was one of highs and low, and ironically, with the exception of the monologue and the always reliably porn stars sketch at the end of the show, the best sketches last night were the ones without Jonah Hill, including the cold open.

Men’s Figure Skating Cold Open

In light of the anti-gay controversy surrounding the Sochi Olympics, the U.S. committee presents the U.S. Men’s Heterosexual Figure Skating Championships. Honestly, I’d watch the crap out of these Olympics. Funny premise, well executed. It’s very heterophobic (in all the best ways). Bonus points for the motorboating motion, and triple bonus points for Cecily Strong as a blonde. Great start to the episode. Score: 8.5/10.



Jonah Hill Monologue

Hosting for the third time, Jonah Hill answers audience questions about his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. Hill is looking dapper as f*ck, until Leo comes out and scolds Hill for not being humble. Is this his first time ever on the SNL stage? Goddamn, he is a movie star. (Score: 6/10 for the sketch; 9/10 for the cameo; and 10/10 for the Titanic joke).



Benihana

Six-year-old Adam Grossman makes some friends while out to dinner with his mother at Benihana. Jonah Hill’s best recurring sketch, and so much better than Jacob the Bar Mitzvah boy, which is both a compliment and not such a compliment. Hill ratchets up the obnoxious with mixed results. (Score: 6/10).



The Hit

A stakeout gets off track when the gang bangers get distracted by a beautiful snowfall. Cut this sketch down by half, and it’d be a perfect scene in a Tarantino movie. (Score: 7/10)



Couples Quiz

A game show goes off course when one contestant refuses to admit to clogging the toilet. It’s a one-note joke that goes nowhere. (Score: 3/10)



Weekend Update

Catch up on the headlines with Weekend Update anchors Seth Meyers and Cecily Strong, including Justin Bieber’s arrest and the new Oreo flavors (the sketch descriptions this week were provided by NBC’s PR people, because ugh, hungover). Huge kudos on the Victoria’s Secret sketch, and Cecily Strong’s bad-ass hilariously awful Scottish accent (I hit rewind on that 47 times). (Score: 8/10)



Weekend Update: The Officer Who Arrested Justin Bieber

The Office Who Arrested Justin Bieber in Miami stops by Weekend Update to tell Cecily about his experience. “It was like finding a swaggy little leprechaun! (Score: 7/10)



Weekend Update: Olya Povlatsky

Russian village woman Olya Povlatsky stops by the Update desk to discuss the Sochi Olympics. Totally worth the pre-roll ad for the “Russian joke.” (Score: 7/10)

Sweetland Ranch — Cecily Strong sang a bit of a Joni Mitchell song, which means there’s no embed for licensing reasons, which just saved you from five minutes of watching a horse beat up Cecily Strong and Jonah Hill. Thanks, Joni Mitchell! (Score: 2/10)

Spike Jonze Trailer

Spike Jonze presents “Me,” a modern love story. There have been a lot of spoofs of the Her trailer, and this is one of them. It was a terrible sketch until the cameo. I won’t spoil it, but it’s’ pretty good. (Score: 4/10)



Boss Dinner

A dinner guest repeatedly embarrasses himself at his boss’ home. Hey, looks like you can say “pussy” on network television now. Otherwise, you know exactly where this sketch is going within 10 seconds, and it goes nowhere good. (Score 2/10)



Inside SoCal

Todd and Casey give you the inside scoop on the SoCal lifestyle. The weekly Kyle Mooney sketch is not very funny, but it is a spot on parody. (Score: 5/10)



Lamborghini

Yes! The two former porn stars promote Lamborghinis, in the hopes that they’ll be sent free ones. Martin Porn-Cese stops by. This sketch never gets old. “One time, I thought I banged SEAL Team 6, but it was just 16 seals. Thanks, America!” (Score: 10/10)

    Dude, I love Jacob the Bar Mitzvah boy!

  • mairimba

    The Boss sketch had Chris Farley written all over it.

  • idiosynchronic

    " . . And the Wolf of Wall Street."

    While the porn stars sketch is always an 8 or 9, that knocked it out of the park.

  • dizzylucy

    I liked the cold open, the Hit, and the last one, but otherwise felt it was a pretty weak episode, especially after last week's with Drake was surprisingly solid all around.

  • Dammit. I tried. I tried to resist. "Nope," I said. "I will not fall for
    another one of Dustin's calculated celeb crushes. I will not. I have to
    draw a line."

    *sigh*

    /Cecily Strong crush achievement unlocked.

    YEW... DON'... KNOW... MEH!!!!

  • Mhs Sally

    I watched part of SNL last night on television for the first time in years last night, and I was blown away by all the ad breaks. Most of the time I watched (granted I didn't catch the entire show) they literally showed one sketch in between full commercial breaks. For people who regularly watch live, is this how it goes down? It was incredibly frustrating and boring!

  • Davis

    Jonah Hills life is complete he's been wanting to do that since they started filming WOWS

  • Was sort of hoping Leo would be the one who showed in the porn star commercial but that skit never fails to deliver.

  • John

    The porn star sketch always kills it, Dustin- correctomundo, it never gets old. I do love the Russian village women, even though I saw that dog joke coming. I'll never get enough of her- Kate is the funniest cast member for sure. Have to disagree with the Boss Dinner sketch. It may have went on for too long but at first- it was hilarious. The kicker was at the end when the woman said " oh wait, this is a Cobb salad !!"

  • Wrestling Fan

    Call me crazy, but I loved the Boss Dinner.
    It was so so stupid, but I laughed my ass off.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I watched entirely for Bastille (who were great) and my favorite parts were Leo, and the lines "like being barked at by a puppy who smells like Smirnoff Ice" and "if Ed Hardy made people" during the Justin Bieber bit on Weekend update. That's about it.

    REALLY bugs me when you post NBC clips. even with hola, canadians can't access them!

    God Bless Hola!!

    Zen Mate.

  • csb

    I feel the opposite. I can get the NBC clips to work, but not Hulu or YouTube. (I'm not in North America, btw.)
