As I predicted in this previous post, last weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live was, in my opinion, the best of the season. Justin Timberlake tore it up throughout the episode. Many of the skits were song based, which is fine when it comes to someone like Timberlake, but my favorite sketch featured Timberlake and Andy Samberg's ancestors coming to America by boat. I can't even tell you how much and how loudly I laughed at that piece.
The other big winner of the night, no surprise, was The Digital Short. Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake have done a number of these together and each seems to get more famous than the last. This week they kicked things up a notch with special guests Patricia Clarkson and Susan Sarandon. Motherlover:
Also, set your DVR's, kids, for a special two hour episode of SNL airing May 17th at 9pm. The special, hosted by Andy Samberg, will be dedicated to SNL Shorts. Mr. Bill, Dick In A Box, Iran So Far Away, Natalie Portman Rapping - I'm sure they'll all be there.
