Justin Timberlake Leads Saturday Night Live to 14-Month High: Watch the Best/Worst Sketches

Get More: Late Night TV, Recaps

justin timberlake steve martin chevy chase martin shortThere’s no denying that Saturday Night Live is in the midst of a lackluster season, so the question surrounding the return of All-Star host Justin Timberlake this week (his fifth time in the role) raised the question: Would the former N’Sync-er inspire the show’s writing staff to whip up some decent punch lines or would JT get dragged into the “Californians”-style muck?

UPDATE: At minimum, Timberlake put big numbers on the tote board — a 5.9 rating among metered-market households and a 15 share, the show’s best scores since Charles Barkley circa January 2012.

Timberlake also worked his multihyphentate butt off: Single-handedly taking charge of a pretty amusing Elton John-at-Hugo-Chavez’s-funeral cold open (whereas most hosts don’t appear till the opening monologue); riffing during said monologue with A-listers including Steve Martin, Martin Short, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd and Candice Bergen; and even pulling double duty as musical guest.

And the good news is, the hard work paid off: Sure, the episode had a few serious clunkers, but the laughter-to-groans ratio was more than acceptable (and even brought us the return of Martin and Aykroyd’s Festrunk Brothers, and Timberlake and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” singers, all in one skit). Below are my picks for the night’s best and worst.

BEST: Moet & Chandon Ad
Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong brought back what could be a one-joke concept — former porn stars doing ad testimonials to score free product — and once again elevated it to pure hilarity with their slurry line readings and increasingly absurdist details. From the botched pronunciation of “effervescence” to Strong’s character’s tale of getting “banged into a sinkhole,” I roared with laughter from start to finish. (Bonus points via JT’s feminist pornographer dropping Friends references, too.)

BEST: Vegan Ville
Timberlake in a giant tofu costume, extolling the virtues of meatless burgers and brown rice in song parodys so deeply stupid you just had to laugh. My favorite line: Starting “We Found Love in a Meatless Place” with the phrase “yellow quinoa.” Amazing. [Video unavailable, likely due to song-clearance issues.]

HONORABLE MENTION: Stefon
From that opening zinger about the Weekend Update nightlife correspondent writing for Smash to an impression of Donald Duck having a Vietnam nightmare, it was a relief to have Bill Hader’s wackiest character back in the mix.

WORST: Tales of Sober Caligula
Bad enough that Timberlake was forced to deliver exceedingly lame jokes about his emperor’s 12-step recovery, but that ending about lopping off and ingesting Bobby Moynihan’s testicles? Totally repugnant.

WORST: Maine Justice
Maybe you have to be from Maine — or New Orleans — to get this extended joke about Cajun crazies like Jason Sudeikis’ judge (and JT’s badly wigged bailiff) ruling the roost of a courtroom in the furthest state east, but gags like a crocodile puppet eating andouille sausage leave me slack-jawed with befuddlement.

What did you think of Timberlake’s fifth time as host? What were your picks for best and worst moments? And are you digging JT’s new music? (I gotta admit, I’d rather listen to “Sexyback.”) Sound off in the comments!

  • I basically concur with everything you said!! They definitely are in the middle of a lackluster season. Several times this season I have had to just start watching and stop because it wasn’t funny. Last night, everything was great with the exception of the two sketches mentioned. The second they started I just shrugged because I knew the writers were gonna inevitably have a few clunkers in there as well. The fact that they managed to bring back Festrunk brothers and Andy & JT as their singing duo, all in the same sketch tho!! Amazing! JT definitely held his own tho, introduced himself as the musical guest and Vegan Ville had me rolling!! I love the Bring It Sketch when he hosts! Dressed like tofu..lmao!!

  • This was def better than anything else they’ve had this season. I could’ve done without Sober Caligula, but everything else was great. Veganville may be my new fave “ville” sketch from him. Would it be too much to ask the writers of the show to keep this up the rest of the season?

      • I totally agree – I think it’s probably that his few film roles have mostly had him playing more serious characters in dramas or thrillers when what works for audiences is him playing comedy. It can be subtly acknowledged that it’s kind of ridiculous that this pop star is foraying into acting and that he’s in on the joke.

      • If you haven’t seen Friends with Benefits than you should. JT and Mila are awesome. He is definitely a better comedic actor than a drama one.

        • I haven’t heard good things about that movie….and it just made me think of the Asthon Kutcher film and I never like to think about Asthon Kutcher when I’m watching a movie :p.But I do like JT and I LOVE MIla so I should check it out.

          I agree…I think he should stick to comedy…at least for now.

          • Without going completely off topic I must say that Ashton Kutcher’s movie No Strings Attached pales in comparison to Friends with Benefits. Also Woody Harrelson is in it and man is he funny. About JT on SNL … I wish they would put all of his spots together maybe in a special. My favorite skit on Saturday night was definitely the dating game one.

  • Best episode of the season, hands down. But it does suck we need these all-star hosts and a bunch of returning cast members to get a good show.

    Stefon was hilarious, Seth also delivered a few great zingers. The final sketch with the former porn stars, I agree, was absolutely brilliant.

    And JT doing the “Bring it on down to…” sketches gets me every time.

    Also, I thought his performance of Suit & Tie last night was better than the performance at the Grammys. The more intimate setting and smaller stage kinda suit the song. No pun intended. xD

  • I agree about Maine Justice… I didn’t get it the first time, and I still don’t. Other than that, this was a solid episode. I laughed more than in recent episodes, including at Sober Caligula.

    • That Maine Justice skit was one of the few times I’ve watched SNL and was just dumbfounded. Usually you know where the idea for the skit came from historically, how it ties into current pop culture, or what they are trying to accomplish, but this was the first time I’ve ever been completely lost during a skit. And it was such a waste to use Samberg in that skit.

      • Oh good, I’m glad I’m not the only one confused by Maine Justice. If they want to make fun of Lousianna stereotypes, why not call it Louisianna Justice? If you want to call it Maine Justice, then make fun of Maine stereotypes. I just don’t get the combination.

  • The Maine justice skit is really funny if you’re from the South (particularly the lowland swamp country of deep East Texas, Louisianna, or Mississippi). I would imagine the rest of the country wouldn’t find it as close to home.

    • I actually I’m from New Orleans and found Maine Justice insufferable. Maybe it’s because I’ve suffered through true blood’s horrific accents long enough…that could be just me, but I rolled my eyes through most of the skit.

    • Then why is it called Maine justice and not Louisiana justice? Have none of the writers ever been to Maine and just assume thats what it’s like there (which I assure you, it is not)? Or is there some sort of ironic joke in calling it Maine but having it set on the Bayou that I just don’t get?

  • I completely agree! The season has been pretty crappy, but I definitely looked forward to JT. And aside from Caligula and Maine Justice (which were both absolutely horrible), the rest of the episode was pure fun! It’s always good to have JT on SNL.

  • The “Bring it On Down” skit is sorta blah for me now… And Maine Justice was just weird and unfunny.

    Stefon was great, as always. And the former pornstars made me laugh as well.

    Comment by KND – March 10, 2013 08:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think this review is spot on for once. Maine Justice was awful this time. Maine Justice should have remained a one time sketch. The first time the sketch was done, I thought it was funny because it was different and original. This time, the joke was supposed to be that it was already played out. Unfortunately it did not work.

    I also found myself bored watching the sober Caligula sketch. I wonder how that made it through rehearsals. I did not laugh once.

    My favorite of the night was definitely Moet & Chandon Ad. I don’t even think I need to explain why.

    Comment by alex – March 10, 2013 08:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Maine Justice is OK… I actually get a few laughs out of it… it’s more due to the absurdity of it and the energy that they all bring to the sketch (energy that is sorely missing from most of the usual lazy, cue-card-reading skits). I’ll give it to you that MAYBE it should have been a do it just once sketch. But I always smile in a Cheri Oteri “Simmer Down Nah!” kind of way.

  • We already know that Season 38 of SNL is having a lackluster but Justin Timberlake by far was really bringing the laughter back to SNL in a VERY big way. The Vegan Ville sketch was the best and they didn’t mention that hilarious Nuva Bling commercial which was making fun of the Nuva Ring ad. But I was so bummed that Jimmy Fallon didn’t make a return appearance if the writers wanted to bring back the hysterical Barry Gibb Talk Show and of course JT is going to be on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon all week long. Guess we’re going to wait until April 6th when Melissa McCarthy makes a return trip to SNL as host for the second time and hopefully, she’ll do better the first time around. :-)

      • I agree. I always enjoyed those sketches, but considering how recent Robin’s death is, it would have felt inappropriate to pull it out last night. I won’t say they’ll never do it again, but it’ll be awhile.

  • I agree with Mr. Slexak on the two worst skits of the night. But I have to say that those two were the only bad apples during an otherwise great night.
    I was only missing some Jimmy Fallon in there somewhere.

  • I just loved that they brought back so many people. Seeing Dan Ackroyd for the first time in forever was wonderful, I’ve always been a fan of his. And how awkward Chevy Chase was (not intentionally) was pretty funny. And the Three Amigos! I liked the dating skit the best, and the “monica and chandler” skit of course…I think Cecily Strong is one of the best they’ve got on the show right now, she’s always so dead on no matter what she’s doing. They need to promote her to regular status and give her lots more screentime. And Justin, as always, was great. He always seems to be in his element when he does this show. I’m not crazy about the songs I’ve heard from his new album though, which is disappointing.

  • I am one of the few people it seems that love Maine Justice- I think it just the absurdist in me – overall the show was top notch – I laugh extra hard at the Stefon bit because i watched an interview with Bill Hader and he said hi co-writer tosses things into the cue cards that he didn’t rehearse so his cracking up is spontaneous and then he has to cold read it.

        • The entire point of Maine Justice is there is no need to explain it. There is no explanation necessary. Got it? It’s a good example of what’s known as absurdist humor. I suspect you needed someone to provide an explanation for pretty much every scene in every episode of 30 Rock, then?

          • You REALLY come across as a complete douchebag, whether or not you intended to (though I suspect that was your point). People are allowed to not like it or even to not get it- humor is very subjective to personal taste. But it’s so easy to insult people from behind a computer screen I guess.

  • Absolute pile of garbage! Overly sexualized episode. Pretty embarrassing and awkward television. 90% of the skits made reference to genitalia, or beastiality! Pretty disturbing how all of you praise this pathetic episode. It is a clear indication of the shift in society, and it’s obsession with sex, and the breaking down of moral boundaries. Sex is a weak substitute for ‘quality’ comedy. Although Timberlake is talented, this episode was absolute trash, and all of you soaked it up, which is rather odd and concerning.

I liked the whole thing except for the weakest for me was the greek gladiator sexaholic, it wasn’t repulsive though. I do not like JT’s new music though, I am still trying to like it. JT is better with Timbaland than Jay-Z & Jay lives in New York, it’s not really a surprise he was there.

    But how was the Blind date show not a best skit? It was epic. You nailed the 2 worst, although I don’t mind Maine Justice. Caligula was the only realy misfire of the night. Thank God we finally got an outstanding episode. Wonder why Drew and John didn’t show up to be part of the opening monologue? Maybe scheduling conflicts or the like.

  • I like Maine Justice, but its a little confusing.

    Because if the conceit is that Maine is the state whose culture is most unlike that of Louisiana that’s just not true. And I’m still not sure if the sketch’s creators know about Acadia or not. So some jokes are weird because if there’s any state where you WOULD expect to find odd pockets of Cajun culture it would be Maine. But I don’t think that’s the point. I think it would work better as Verm
