>Press Conference: **
>The cold open was alright. The MLK/Tobacco thing was
>an enjoyable bit and Myers was good.
>Monologue: DUD
>Too much Roseanne and yelling! Her voice was
>irritating the whole damn time and she had officially
>crossed the line when it came to unlikable and
>obnoxious. It was not even that funny to begin with.
>US Air: ****
>US Air was Nealon's best sketch of the season and he
>had a super strong performance that reminded me of how
>he started his tenure on the show. Elliot was great in
>this and Farley was alright. Underrated sketch.
>A Woman Exploited: The Madonna and Tom Arnold Story:
>A Tom Arnold sketch... ugh. This was just horrible.
>Like, really horrible. Roseanne basically played
>herself in this petty sketch.
>Rescue 911: *
>Roseanne playing herself again during Rescue 911.
>Honestly, she wasn't that bad in this. How she said
>she was going to hang up was funny, but this was far
>inferior compared to the classic MetroCard commercial
>the first time she hosted.
>Weekend Update: ****1/2
>Norm's best jokes: US Air, Delta/Blimpie's, Paula
>Jones, Kenny G Christmas album(!), Dahmer/breakfast,
>Dahmer/heaven, Jerry Rubin(!), not gay enough.
>I liked David Spade making fun of himself for a tiny
>bit during his commentary, but it would have been real
>nice if he did not phone it in so badly. This really
>could have been one of his best pieces on the show,
>but his demeanor completely ruined it here. Garofalo's
>commentary was bad and it sounded like she was playing
>Sandler did his Hanukkah Song in this episode, but it
>was not enough to warrantee the second five star
>sketch of the season.
>Low-Fat Yogurt: DUD
>Somehow better than that Homegirls mess from last
>Civil War Memories From High School Dropouts: **1/2
>I guess I liked how Sandler was someone who puts cones
>on the highway in Civil War Memories From High School
>Dropouts. McKean was alright changing the story, too.
>Some of the other testimonies were serviceable, but
>nobody else really stood out.
>Multiple Personalities: ****1/2
>Just imagine this season with Norm actually in
>sketches... Multiple Personalities was great.
>Funny Strange: *
>I don't know what to think about Funny Strange.
>Farley's bit was okay. The interactions between Elliot
>and his brother took forever, but that was
>Lock Up with Bobby Blake: DUD
>Another great indication that showed that Laura
>Kightlinger's SNL career was going to go nowhere. Deer
>in the headlights.
>Episode MVP: Norm MacDonald.
>Without Norm, this episode would have gotten a 1.17.
>Happy birthday Jesus, hope you like crap!
>Final Thoughts:
>I have a striking comparison to this episode. I
>noticed this in Lock Up. Roseanne's character reminded
>me of Melissa McCarthy's Shiela Kelly character where
>she shot the gun at the cameras. This whole episode is
>just like that. Roseanne kept playing herself and
>yelling characters. McCarthy was known to play the
>same yelling or lady punk character over and over
>again, too (see: her episode in season 39).
>It seemed that the only reason Roseanne hosted this
>episode was to embarrass and exploit her ex-husband,
>Tom Arnold.
