Last night’s “SNL,” was short on highlights, basically another waste of a perfectly good guest host. But Mark Zuckerberg showed up, there was a good “Mr. Wizard” skit, and Tyler Perry’s news segment was the night’s highlight.
Here are the “highlights.”
MICHELE BACHMANN COLD OPEN
So much promise frittered away. That’s the best you can do with Michelle Bachmann?
JESSE EISENBERG MONOLOGUE
Mark Zuckerberg makes an appearance. Funny, a little awkward, and Zuckerberg’s a terrible actor, but then, he’s Mark Zuckerberg. He doesn’t need to know how to act. He has more money than NBC.
Oh, Sweet Maria. This one was funny. And Mr. Wizard!
Briefly funny, but only when Hader loses it.
SNL DIGITAL SHORT: THE CREEP
John Waters introduces this week’s Digital Short, but it’s not otherwise worth watching. It’s not only bad, but it’s painfully ear-wormy.
WEEKEND UPDATE: TYLER PERRY
“… and Cicely Tyson as Bill Gates.” This was probably the best segment of the night.
