I don’t know much about Nanjiani. I haven’t seen all that much that he’s been in. I’ve read his twitter though and that can be funny.
Cold open: Baldwin is back. It is relevant stuff but it is just the same thing again and again at this point. It’s not as good as it used to be and really it’s just not funny.
Monologue: He’s really funny. Like I was into this a lot. I would watch him do stand-up. I just kept laughing out loud at this.
Bank Breakers: This was amusing but not really great.
CNN: I’m probably going to have nightmares.
Office Halloween party: This was not all that funny.
NYFF: Kate McKinnon is a treasure and should be protected at all costs. Jones and Strong were spot on in with their impersonations.
First song: She sounded good. I like Pink so I was happy that it was her performing.
Weekend Update: I mean Jost is fine. He’s funny. But Michael Che is just winning all of the weeks. Cecily Strong was pretty good as Ivana.
Hotel check-in: Not all that amused by this either.
Second song: She sounded great. I’ve never heard that song. I’m into it.
Phone center: It was good but went on just a little too long.
I thought he was really funny. I didn’t know much about him before but this was a nice introduction and I’d totally watch him do stand-up after seeing his monologue.
