    I'm with Angie- I love Melissa McCarthy but she wasn't used to her full potential. I enjoyed parts of the episode a lot. I thought the Arlene skit was hilarious! Guess I'm just easily amused.

    I had to google Melissa McCarthy. I figured she was some reality star or something. I see her picture and I definitely know her. I had no clue that was that lady's name. I even watched an episode or two of that TV show or hers with the fat guy.

    I didn't know who Melissa McCarthy is and have only watched through the opening monologue so far and hope the show gets better.

    Kristen Wiig is arguably the biggest star on the show, and is certainly the biggest female star. Not sure why you'd think she'd have to sleep with anyone to be on the show. IMO, the show is lucky she's still there and hasn't left for greener pastures yet.

    I thought Arlene Hits on Tim was hilarious.

    I found Melissa McCarthy to be an excellent host.

    Her comedic style reminds me of Will Ferrell - just over the top obnoxious and gross (and I mean that in a good way). The Hidden Valley Ranch sketch and "Arlene Hits on Tim" illustrate what I'm talking about particularly well. ("The Essentials" too.)

    Really, Will Ferrell?? I'd say Molly Shannon.

    I can see that too.

    But, yes, I meant Will Ferrell.

    I can 100% see him playing the part she played in the Hidden Valley commercial, for example, exactly the same way she played it.

    You're both right, and that explains why I didn't enjoy last night's episode. I never liked either Will Ferrell or Molly Shannon. Not my style of humor. Hopefully next week will be better.

    I wish she would already.

    She may be the biggest star but she is also the most overused and annoying. Like an idiot I rented Bridesmaids not realizing she wrote it as a vehicle for herself. I could barely sit through it.

    Wow, this is the first time I've read a negative comment about the movie, I loved it and I'm hardly a Kristen Wiig fan

    I didn't have an opinion of Kristen Wiig when I saw Bridesmaids and I thought Bridesmaids was awesome! So awesome that I bought a used copy from Ebay...we aren't spending money and we made the decision to spend it on this!

    (Rerun alert.)

    I will say this for Jay Pharoah. As much as I hate his impressions, he got Chris Rock's weirdo hands right.

    I also wonder...I don't think that was ranch. I wonder what it was. That much ranch would be hard to eat.

    I'm going to go back on this. I think they did a pretty good job, and Melissa did a fantastic job.
