Let me summarize what was funny: Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.
Now, let me summarize everything that was not: The rest of the show. Even Weekend Update, usually the highlight for me, was weak. Phelps read straight off the cue card and they recycled a sketch from Peyton Manning’s show. It wasn’t funny the second time. Also still not funny: the fake political comedian Nicholas Feign.
Why was there no Penelope sketch? That would’ve been the better Kristen Wiig use than the creepy kids. I guess they think just changing wigs on a tall, awkward standing athlete would be funny enough.
