3:45 Ass

I would not characterize this season of SNL as exceptional. I like Nasim Pedrad but the show has been going more for silly than sharp lately. That's not to say that there isn't good work coming from the likes of Jason Sudekis, Will Forte and the great Bill Hader. Heck even Kristen Wiig gets in a solid moment. Still the last two hosts; James Franco and Charles Barkley seemed to invigorate the writers and performers so hopefully we're starting to see a positive up-tick.

All that preamble is really just an excuse to show this clip. It features the aforementioned Wiig and Hader as well as Bobby Monihan (who has been quite fun too now that I think about it), some cast member who will go unnamed and host Gerard Butler.

This sketch has a lot to recommend. The only thing that could make it better? Gaston. Maybe.

The video didn't work. Can I assume it was the Beauty & the Beast skit? If so, great choice.

I'm hoping for some good SNL eps in the future, too. I'd also like to see more Nasim Pedrad. They haven't given her much to do. It's like they forget they hired three other women b/c they mostly put Kristen Wiig in the sketches. I like Wiig, but give the others a chance to shine instead of recycling the same tired bits.
