      yea it was awful but it wasnt his fault, the writing was just not funny…

      • cj says:

        poor writing is i think why they’ve been bringing back a lot of alums (alec baldwin, tina fey, amy poehler, jimmy fallon, etc). poor writing during rookie hosted nights is obvious, but to hide bad writing under alums… it just seems like a trick to keep the ratings out of the gutter.

    yikes won’t be even close to watching this episode, i cant stand maya rudolph but good for her i’m glad she’s able to do something that has probably always been a dream of hers to come full circle.

    why hasn’t this happened until now!!!

  12. K says:

    This is beyoooooond amazing!!!! OMG, she’s one of my fave SNL cast members of all time!!!!! What makes it even more special is that this will most likely be Kristen Wiig’s last year on SNL, great to see Maya will host for the first time while Wiig is still a cast member. Those two together are absolute gold!!! Ahhhh!!!! I’m actually sooooo excited!!!

    Don’t mess with me Mr. Bobby Brown!
    Hopefully Bronx Beat will also make an appearance. I love that skit.
