John Mulaney hosts one of the strongest ‘Saturday Night Live’ of the season. Can we keep him? PLEASE?

The adorable and hilarious John Mulaney hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and while every sketch didn’t land, it was still a light and fun return home for the former SNL writer. Of course, it might not be entirely fair to compare Mulaney to his fellow hosts — oh, did the comedian and comedy writer who used to write for the very show he is currently hosting and therefore knows what works and what doesn’t work and how to deliver even a weak joke to get a laugh, did that guy do a better job of hosting than a movie actor who has never done live television before? YOU DON’T SAY.

Still, it’s hosts like Mulaney or Bill Hader or Will Ferrell who make me wish they’d just do away with any guest host who isn’t an experienced comedian already. Because, I swear to God, if they bring Charles Barkley back one more time …

Veteran Not Ready for Primetime Player, Bill Hader, returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend ahead of the premiere of his new HBO series, Barry, and (for the most part) he was a God damned delight. Hader revisited a number of his classic characters, including Stefon, Devon of “The Californians,” and a number of his celebrity impersonations. (Personally, I would have swapped out Devon for Vincent Price, but 1. that bit is not the same without Kristin Wiig’s wackiness and 2. I am well aware that I am in the minority there.) The rest of the night was a mixed bag, with only one or two sour notes which had more to do with the writers depending too heavily on Hader’s talent for wacky voices and not delivering actually funny material. Alien sketch, I’m lookin’ at you.

Anyway, go ahead and schedule Hader for sometime next season, Lorne, because I already want him to come back.
