The Return of The King

I gotta say that the April 12 Saturday Night Live was way up there in terms of actually being funny. The opening lasted WAY too long, but the rest of the show just nailed it. Silly as it was, the Death By Chocolate with Ashton Kutcher really made me laugh—probably because it was so ridiculous.

Two skits really stood out. First, Kristen Wiig as Jamie Lee Curtis was beyond brilliant. Her impersonation is dead-on and her timing is impeccable.

The second skit that had me rolling was The Cougar Show. I have friends that actually deal with these women and from his descriptions, this is right-perfect.

Hail the return of SNL… just in time, because MadTV has gone into the crapper so deep, I don’t know if it can return (seriously, when half your bits depend on the incredibly unfunny Bobby Lee, you are in deep-deep trouble).

How many messages do you think JLC got on her answering machine after that aired?! Hilarious.

ahahaHAH---The Cougar Show is hilarious! How funny is it that Ashton came on as a "cougar cub?" Best quote: "Just be direct. Go right up to him and say this is not going to be as gross as you think." I'm a 45-year-old woman and am still laughing... :-)
