‘Saturday Night Live’ ends its season on a high note with Dwayne Johnson

Saturday Night Live ended this rollercoaster of a season in the capable hands of the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as host, welcoming him into the increasingly less exclusive Five-Timers club, and saying goodbye to two long-standing cast members, Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer. And aside from a couple of wild misses (what even was that bar sketch, guys?), the show did right by everyone: Johnson was given material that suits his disarmingly charming nature, and Bayer and Moynihan were in practically every sketch (one or both of them were in 10 of the 15 sketches below).

Scarlett Johansson is complicit in a terrible episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’

What is going on, guys? Are you fatigued? Just so very tired of Donald Trump? Running out of ideas? Did you hit your heads and forget how comedy works? Because this is the second week in a row in which Saturday Night Live was not just mediocre, but downright terrible. Terrible!

Now, some, like my husband, will argue that Saturday Night Live has been downright terrible for a long time now, but that’s not true! Remember the Dave Chappelle episode? Lin-Manuel Miranda’s? Aziz Ansari’s?  These were good episodes — great even! — and they aired not all that long ago.

And here’s the place where I usually excuse the host, training my disapproving eye squarely on the writers’ room. But not this week. Scarlett Johannson, you are literally a member of the Five-Timers Club! You’re practically a member of the cast now! You don’t get to be this Not Good, girl! EVERYBODY NEEDS TO DO BETTER.
