    Loved the middle of the show, for once I have no argument with how they ended it, the last 2 were just awful.

    Loved the Japanese sketch. But loved the digital short so much I want to marry it.

    The rest was blah.

    The 'What's Wrong with Tanya' had me laughing hard. Lifetime, the channel for white women.

    I thought this was really awesome too. I love when Hader does a game show host, he brings a perfect level of smarmy to the role.

    I also loved the ending of the GOP debate, they totally got me with that. The van was funny, the gun shots were funny, I thought they were going with the metaphor of how the media would just like him to leave so they don't have to talk about him, and then he pops outta the van, awesome.

    who is this anna faris and why did she host not once but twice?

    why did they call this their halloween episode?
    I got momentarily excited when they said that's what it was and then wondered why they mostly ignored it.

    She does a lot of the scream and spoof movies, pretty much type cast as a ditsy woman.

    I would assume it's because the next new episode isn't until 11/5. I think for the most part Holiday shows are always before the holiday, not after.

    I concur. The only moment in the show that was even remotely Halloweenish was the very end of the Digital Short.

    I very rarely watch SNL. Last night it was just on in the background after the news. We found a few of the skits really funny. I doubt we'll add SNL to our usual TV schedules, but we did enjoy it.

    Much much better than last weeks show. I only skipped past Drake and that awful Japanese thing. Last week I skipped past so much crap that I watched the show in under 35 minutes.

    I guess I'm going to have to go back and watch the Tonya sketch. I wasn't paying complete attention, but I just didn't get it.

    I just realized-no Vincent Price Halloween special. Angie Sad. :(

    I'm totally in love with Vanessa Bayer and her goofy, toothy, smile. She was in almost every sketch, so that made me happy.

    Meanwhile, I hate her more and more with every sketch she's in.

    Her role in the second political sketch was so wooden I wondered if she was actually alive.

    I don't hate her, but I do notice at least one stutter/stammer from her in every show.

    The calendar thing was so awful. The cue card reading was so painfully obvious. I also can't stand the guy who gets the news sorta wrong. Liked the Tell Him song and the Japanese thing, and of course the Interviews with Drake.

    They should have done another Vincent Price Halloween Special. Those always crack me the hell up.

    Yeah she seemed to replace Wig as the woman in almost every sketch of the episode. I thought the "Tell Him" sketch was pretty good.

    During the debate sketch I liked Herman Cain's 3-3-3 and 5-5-5 plans..
