All right, last chance, “Saturday Night Live.” If you can’t pull your shit together with Jon Hamm as your host, then I will stop wa … well, no. I’ll keep watching, because the recaps are very weirdly popular on the site for reasons I don’t quite understand, except that our readers must really love to rubberneck live television trainwrecks, or be the 1,993,785,345th person to ever say, “This show is still on?” or the 9,342,856,325,428th person to say, “‘SNL’ hasn’t been funny in years.”
But I will stop watching in my heart, “SNL.” Don’t you screw this up for the best “SNL” host you’ve had since Justin Timberlake’s masterful multi-year run.
Here’s a promo for this weekend’s show, and if it’s anything like what we can expect from the episode, it will be bad writing that’s completely obscured by the dashing good looks and goofy charm of Mr. Hamm.
Oh, and here’s the cover of Russia’s GQ magazine. We get the “Glee” kids. Russia gets Jon Hamm. Communism doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?*
* Yes. I know, Russia is not technically Communist anymore. Shut the fuck up; it’s a joke.
