Lena Dunham Hosts Saturday Night Live: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

Saturday Night Live - Season 39

Whether you love or loathe (or perhaps try not to pay attention to) HBO’s Girls, you’ve got to give it at least a little credit for the ferociously specific point-of-view of its creator Lena Dunham. (OK, you don’t have to give her credit for anything, obviously, but for the sake of this intro, just work with me!)

Alas, though, in her Saturday Night Live hosting debut, …READ MORE & TAKE OUR POLL
