I just finished watching Alec Baldwin hosting with the Jonas Brothers as musical guest. Even with Dan Akroyd, Cameron Diaz and the wussy guy from 30 Rock doing cameos there was little to write home about.
It wasn’t 100% awful, but there were long periods between the good stuff.
The truth is last year was the exception. Tonight’s show was closer to the long term rule for SNL. Most seasons, most shows are awful… or uneven at best. We watch because we’re waiting for that one Bass-o-matic moment to remember.
