Tina Fey brings back Sarah Palin for ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but was it enough? (No, not really.)

Saturday Night Live
Tina Fey & Nicki Minaj
May 19, 2018

I wanted to love this episode. I love Tina Fey and believe that if anyone can wring out some genuine hilarity from this show, it is Mama Tina. However, if we’re all being honest with each other, the Saturday Night Live finale featuring Tina was a bit of a let-down. It wasn’t terrible — or even bad! — but it wasn’t the consistently funny and revelatory episode I was hoping for, either.

Don’t get me wrong: there were some terrific moments. Tina managed to find a way to bring her amazing Sarah Palin impersonation back and make it (kinda) politically relevant; and her attempts to join the cast of Mean Girls is a master class is self-deprecation. But the rest of the episode felt … anticipatory …  like we were all waiting for something genuinely hilarious to happen … and it never quite did.
