Well, I can’t say I was surprised. I wasn’t exactly excited for Lindsay Lohan to host SNL
for the fourth time. I mean, she’s had some great episodes, but she was never really the reason why. My two cents? I think that sometimes, the more boring the host is, the more stops the players have to pull out for the show to be memorable. When people like Lindsay Lohan host, the cast does everything they can to make up for the (lack of) comedic skills.
However, my theory may have been shot down after this weekend’s episode, because there really wasn’t much of anything to save SNL
from the trainwreck that is Lindsay Lohan. First of all, is it impossible for her to wear anything flattering? I know this is such a minute complaint in the bigger picture, but when you’re Lindsay Lohan, all eyes are on you. Why not dress in a manner that will encourage your audience to get past the little stuff? Lindsay’s hair and outfit were horrendous. Blonde is NOT a good look on her, and she needs to learn that now.
So right from the get-go, she wasn’t helping herself. Next, it’s time for the actual comedy to begin. She didn’t really help out in what little comedy there was. She played different versions of herself in almost every scene, and even though these roles required little to no preparation, she still did the worst
job I’ve ever seen of reading from the cue cards. Come on
, it’s your fourth time hosting! You still haven’t learned how to handle the task of reading lines?
I would be willing to excuse this if her characters were even a little entertaining, but even in the “Scared Straight” sketch (perhaps the easiest sketch to just go completely over-the-top with), she kept her demeanor as cool as a cucumber.
All in all, I was pretty disappointed. Unfortunately, SNL
had its best ratings of the season, so hold on for more “comebacks” of untalented celebrities…so long to the glory days of Charlie Day, Melissa McCarthy, and Jimmy Fallon.
