    I was really hoping for a lot more, pretty mediocre show. I liked that they acknowledged Justin in the Mirror skit.

    I think this is the first time I've ever said this about SNL: I enjoyed the musical guest more than the entire rest of the show. Thought Michael did a great job.

    EDIT: Fixed Tracy Jordan to Morgan

    Was it just me, or did Michael Buble look like he was trying his hardest not to burst out laughing during both of his songs?

    So was Tracy Morgan playing his Trace Jordan character from 30 Rock? :p

    I'm surprised they didn't mention the old episode that had Fallon hosting in the future.

    I liked the mirror sketch better when it was Mick Jagger and Jimmy Fallon doing his Mick Jagger impression.

    I haven't seen Horatio Sans for a while, but wow he lost a lot of weight.

    I enjoyed this better than last week for the most part. Not sure why, maybe it was all e cameos. Liked the Christmas duets. Season Greetings is always fun, though Tracy looked like someone drugged him and dragged him onto the stage. :)

    The joke off was extremely disappointing.

    Agreed. Almost like they didn't rehearse. Plus, what was up with the fake buzzers? :thumbsdown:

    I was happy to see Tracy, Jimmy, Chris, and Horatio get together again to do their little holiday ditty. :up: :)

    I think the joke off was done improv, and the fake buzzer was part of it.

    Tracy Morgan looked absolutely miserable during the song sketch.

    I just happened to notice that the last time they did "Don't Make Me Sing" was also the last time Michael Buble was the musical guest. That seems to be an odd coincidence since he doesn't have anything to do with the skit.

    The seasons greeting thing is popular? Really? I don't dislike it, but I don't think it's really funny in any way.

    This, especially with all the high power cameos.

    High points:

    • Michael Buble Christmas Duets commercial
    • Jimmy Talks to his Mirror
    • Seasons Greetings from Saturday Night Live
    • Jesus Visits the Broncos
    • and of course Michael Buble

    Low points:

    • "Don't make me sing". -The first time was FF-worthy and this one was certainly no better.
    • Half Jewish Half Italian Completely Neurotic. -Just painful and not funny.
    • Warhorse.
    • All of WU, especially the Joke-Off. I do believe it was completely improv, but still, these guys are usually better at improv than this.

    Yea, I can't believe they didn't reference that at all.

    I read about it here and was totally expecting something, but got nothing...

    I also can't believe that the writers in 1998 couldn't be bothered to look up the actual date in 2011 and see that the 12th would be a Monday. Unless that was Fallon screwing up the date.

    The first time they did it, it was just odd and it kind of became a tradition after that. They did it every year until all 4 of them left the show. The last time they did it was actually with Horatio and the Muppets as the other 3 had already left.

    Ah, that's how little I think of it, I didn't realize they had done it more than once before.

    Chris Kattan was either drunk or stoned.

    True dat. Was he in any sketches? One of my favorite things he's done was the Hamm and Buble sketch that he did with Jon Hamm. He's ridiculously funny.


    I hate Chris Kattan with my whole being.

    So much potential but pretty bleh overall. I thought the best was the Buble Christmas Duets. Why they continue to focus on Kristen Wiig playing basically the same annoying character over and over is beyond me.

    He always looks that way; especially during the christmas song sketches.
