    They actually didn’t give Brosnahan a ton to do. However, she was very funny in the name change bureau skit and the Tabitha talk show skit was a one-joke pony, but she was also good in that and the game show. The Maisel take-off was kind of obvious and on-the-nose.

    I’ve moved into the demographic that knows who less than half the SNL musical acts are, but I really could have gone my entire life without that mess last night. Best line of the night was Jost: “The super blood wolf moon eclipse is actually a very rare lunar eclipse and not, as I assumed, the name of the band that just performed on our show.”

    Thought the episode was good. No sketch was particularly incredible, but all were decent to good. I like the monologue and thought Brosnahan fit in great when other hosts can sometimes seem awkward.

    There is basically no chance this could happen because they’re probably just not famous enough, but due to their clout in the comedy scene and the upcoming conclusion of their show, it would be INCREDIBLE if Abbi Jacobsen and Ilana Glazer could host.

    Rachel Brosnahan was an effortless natural at this like I knew she would be. The “Maisel” spoof was great, and as silly as they were, I also liked the Ken Instagram one and the earthquake at the name change clinic lol. The “Deal or No Deal” cold open was cute. “Weekend Update” was surprisingly strong this week, but there’s so much material to cover in a month’s absence. A major highlight was John Mulaney and Pete Davidson riffing about “The Mule,” which looks like it’ll inexplicably clear $100 million at the box office by February. I’m guessing Pete will get some online flak for his suicide joke, but is it bad how much I laughed at it lol? And the musical guests are Grammy nominees Greta Van Fleet, who I must say that I low-key loved? They have this bizarre 70s throwback aesthetic to both their styling and musical influences. The lead singer is absolutely bananas, and I really dig that. I thought they were excellent. The two songs performed are from two different albums, and the first one is currently Grammy-nominated for Best Rock Song. Colin Jost also did a joke about them that was pretty wicked too. They do look like dirty, strung-out hippie junkies, but damn if they can’t manage some catchy-ass tunes too. Nice returning episode.

    Suicide jokes are very touchy and usually do not land.

    Loved all the skits except for the last one where I only laughed when James broke. My grade: A

    That Soulja Boy bit was one of the funniest impressions in a long time. Redd and Gardner give this show hope for the future.

    This has Emmy potential for Cheadle 🙂

    Is it just me or the cold open was terrible?

    This was a good episode but the cold open didn’t hit hard enough in my opinion and the last two skits were sorta just there. My grade: B+

    Don Cheadle rocked it. Too bad the material was so beneath him. Both of Gary Clark, Jr.’s new songs were excellent.
