‘Saturday Night Live’ should thank Tiffany Haddish for saving the best episode of the season so far

Saturday Night Live
“Tiffany Haddish & Taylor Swift”

Tiffany Haddish, the breakout star from this summer’s hit Girls Trip, hosted an inconsistent but occasionally brutally funny Saturday Night Live. While I’m not ready to say that it was a great or even really good episode, thanks to Haddish’s vibrancy and a slew of blisteringly on-point jokes about sexual harassment and abuse of power that took aim at both Roy Moore and SNL favorite Louis C.K., it was the best episode of the season so far. Not that that’s a particularly high bar to clear, LARRY DAVID. Still, I’ll take what I can get at this point.

Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time last night and it was … not great. For instance, in the monologue, what should have been a fun stand-up routine by an experienced comedian ended up being an exercise in awkwardness as David bombed repeatedly before ending on a potentially offensive note. Though there were a few bright spots — Aidy Bryant’s Huckabee Sanders is coming into its own, for instance — late into the episode, my younger son wondered about a sketch: “is this as bad or worse than Larry David making concentration camp jokes?” — which pretty much sums up the night.

Not even the handful of Houston Astros who made an appearance in celebration of their World Series win could save the episode, seemingly wandering in as an afterthought, only to be manhandled by Leslie Jones. All in all, everyone deserved better.

AMC just suggested there could be 50 more years of ‘The Walking Dead’ so I’m just going to go back to bed now.
