    Anne surprised me with a great singing voice. She was great in everything. I fell off the couch laughing at Armisen as the queen. (how appropriate). I hated Florence and the Machine. What the hell was that!

  • Erica

    I am starting to realize that all the new cast members on the show are better and funnier than the older ones. For example Pharoah gives amazing impressions and that new girl who does Miley Cyrus I find funny.

    • Eric

      I really like those two new cast members.

  • Lori

    I thought it was the best epis of the season. The multi-talented Anne H proved to be one of the most most delightful and funniest hosts to appear on the show for quite awhile. I thought all of the skits were funny–loved the Wiz of Oz TCM take-off. By the way–all of the impressions in that sketch were great–not just Hader. Very good SNL

    I loved when Prince Philip said about William: “he used to be better looking.” Hysterical.

  • Landon

    Love Anne Hathaway, and she did a great job!

  • Teresa

    Ken–give it up for last nights epi. I thought it was hilarious. LOVED Anne Hathaway. Her impression of Katie Holmes–LMAO. Thought the entire show was very good. A variety of skits–so there was no repetitive thing going on like some weeks. I think that is due to the versatility of Anne Hathaway. I thought the airline skit was hilarious. And the Wizard of Oz stuff–wonderful! Weekend Update was good (love Seth M) One of the first shows in awhile that I watched the entire thing without any FF.

    Best episode in a long time! I legitimately laughed out loud, and really hard too, at times. The Horse Play soundtrack was hysterical, and I loved the cold open (Rachel Meh-dow), Weekend Update (especially Jay Pharoah, my favorite cast member for sure), The Wizard of Oz lost scenes, and the Mega-Mart Thanksgiving sale. There were a couple duds (never have liked Penelope), and the musical guest was strange, but overall it was a really exceptional episode!

    Best episode this season. Anne was great in every sketch, even when the writing wasn’t so hot. That said, the writing was MUCH better last night. I laughed more than I have at SNL in years. Loved seeing Abby Elliot get some more screen time. Vanessa Bayer is a great addition to the show. Miley auditioning for Batman–genius! And why hasn’t anyone mentioned CAMEL TAME?? So funny. And while I didn’t care for Florence’s second song (there are much better songs on the CD)..I thought she sounded pretty good. Go figure.

      Totally forgot about Camel Tame– that WAS hilarious! Thanks for making me remember that haha.

    I worship at Anne Hathaway’s altar and I require more “on-the-spot” reporting from veteran anchor Herb Welch!

  • Richard

    really? more fawning over a celebrity…this show was brutal.

    • Casey

      In addition to her being a celebrity, she’s also a talented and multi-dimensional actress. That might have something to do with it.

      • Richard

        i actually like ann hathaway but the reviewer’s recap was bonkers – over the top praise for her on what was a terrible show. it wasn’t her fault, the skits were awful and unfunny…the article is like a mother writing a review of her daughter’s bad play.

  • DC

    A “good” show not great…but
    Anne has alot of talent and can certianly sing
    But do we need a Miley Cyrus bit.
    I mean come on the sun has set on that ship along time ago

  • Laura

    Ok, am I the only one who got a big kick out of Bobby M.’s Guy Fieri impersonation? I would want to say it was over the top, but I’ve seen Guy’s show.

    • Jessica

      I loved it too!! It was hilarious. I wonder if you have to watch his shows to understand that that is what he is really like? When he said that he could eat the sauce off of a flip-flop i nearly lost it because he says that at least once an episode.

    • Justin

      Yeah, I thought it was great…he played it just past what Guy normally does. Perfect!

    • bobo

      Yeah I loved the Guy Fieri bit too as I watch his cooking shows often. The sunglasses thing is stupidly funny and I liked how they referenced that!

  • Aaron

    The best show of the season I think. Ken: you weren’t paying attention. The newscaster didn’t die; that was his ploy to get the camera back on him (and to start beating the camera with his mic). Not sure I want to see him back, but it was an amusing one-off.

  • Nicole

    Anne was fantastic the musical guest on the other hand, needs some lessons cause she was flat the entire night! The reviewer called it dramatic singing, the only thing dramatic about it, was how dramatically off pitch she sang!

    • LOL

      Another Simon Cowell?

      • karate pants

        just because they heard it right doesn’t mean they are simon cowell. i watched it with 10 friends and we all walked out of the room during that mess. get your ears checked you hipster freak.

        The pictures are absltuoely wonderful Elizabeth! You did a magnificient job with what you have posted so far. Cannot wait to see the rest of them! Anne is so special to us and we are so excited to have her and Brennon & Landon join the Cato family!!!

  • nancyp

    Anne is one of the few new-generation stars who seem to show new facets of their skill (skin!) and persona with every outing. I think her up-for-anything attitude springs from ever-increasing confidence. Not in the Alec Baldwin ” I’m so lucky to be me” vein, but more of an I-can-handle-it. Sail on, Annie!
