The Best & Worst of Paul Rudd Hosting This Week’s SNL

Listen to the Podcast

After this week’s brand new episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Paul Rudd (the first of 3 new episodes in December), Rob Cesternino and Rich Tackenberg got together to discuss what sketches worked and which ones fell flat.

What Worked

  • Rob and Rich were excited to see the co-stars of Anchorman show up in the monologue to join Paul Rudd in a face-off with One Direction
  • Paul Rudd was particularly hilarious as he was in a stand off with numerous tween girls as the biggest fan of one Direction
  • Though we barely had a chance to miss him, Taran Killam returns to the Weekend Update desk as Jebidiah Atkinson to review the Holiday Specials on TV.

What Didn’t Work

  • Kristen Wiig will always be welcome to return to the show, but I think we’ve all seen enough of Dooneese.
  • Keenan doing Politics Nation as Al Sharpton
  • Paul Rudd and Vanessa Bayer get a divorce left both the guys a little confused.
  • Bill Brasky REALLY didn’t work for Tim Meadows.

Check out this week’s show and let us know what you think.  Next week, Rob and Rich will be back to discuss the new episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by John Goodman with Musical Guest, Kings of Leon.
