>Press Conference: **
>Why has it taken this long for Ellen's Jocelyn Elders
>impression to be recurring? This was pretty much the
>one thing she had going for her after her
>below-average characters were phased out.
>Monologue: ***
>Funny monologue for Alec's fifth time hosting. Alec's
>line about Sinead ripping up the picture was funny.
>The politically correct version of Canteen Boy was
>funny as well. This is why Alec constantly gets asked
>back to the show.
>Santa Believers: ***
>Baldwin and Nealon both carried Santa Believers. It
>could have been better though in a different season
>(as Santa Baby in season 41 proves). I liked how
>Nealon said they had to buy the presents and the
>parents weren't believing him.
>LA Breast and Penis: 1/2*
>Alec plays a doctor, who is an expert in enlarging
>breasts and penises. Everyone getting tired after
>running for nearly two minutes was a small laugh, but
>that part went way too long. It took up just about
>half the sketch. A few other lines, such as Elliott
>telling Ellen that she was going to like what happened
>to her husband proved to be small bright spots in a
>very poorly put-together sketch.
>Japanese Game Show: *****
>Why didn't Japanese Game Show lead off after the
>monologue? A diamond in the rough.
>Weekend Update: ****
>Norm's best jokes were: passenger/plane crash, Dan
>Quayle/blood clot, stamp, DUH magazine(!), introduce
>yourselves(!), Michael Jackson(!), dog cocaine(!).
>Rookie Cop: ***
>A sketch so infamously bad that it is funny. Norm
>wasn't even trying when he was throwing up. It was
>funny that the bags were squirting everywhere and
>before they started to get sick too. The dress
>rehearsal version that is online also is pretty funny,
>especially the scene with Nealon and Elliott hurling
>on each other.
>The Young and the Youthful: DUD
>This sketch took forever and I had trouble staying
>behind it with all the awful non-sequiturs. We are a
>long way from season fifteen, the first time Baldwin
>hosted sadly.
>Family Road Trip: DUD
>Exhibit A why Garofalo and McKean are two of the worst
>cast members ever.
>Exotic Dancer: DUD
>I want to pretend Exotic Dancer never happened. This
>was so disturbing that I wish I can give it two DUDs.
>Has to be the worst sketch of the season yet.
>Celebrity Memorabilia Action: DUD
>Chris Elliot should be really unhappy. He was in two
>DUDs right at the end of the show. Both of them have
>to go down as some of the worst this season. Oh hi,
>90s "friend of the show," Christian Slater.
>What happened to Deep Thoughts this season? We
>could've used some of that earlier on. This one wasn't
>even as good as they usually were.
>Episode MVP: Chris Farley.
>Norm nearly won it for his historically good night on
>Update, but Japanese Game Show (best sketch of the
>season) was all Farley in a rare moment of triumph
>this season.
>Final Thoughts:
>Some actual stretches of watchability this episode,
>with Japanese Game Show and Weekend Update back to
>back, but some stretches of unwatchability, due to
>Chris Elliott at the very end of the show.
>Episode Rating with Exotic Dancer as a DOUBLE DUD: 1.71
