This is why it’s almost impossible to prognosticate SNL hosts: Who would have ever guessed Jonah Hill’s fourth time as host would be such a dud and Ariana Grande would turn out to be the next Rich Little? (Okay, maybe we can still prognosticate if the host is either an athlete or Justin Bieber, because one is usually bad and the other is always bad.) Also, is Larry David a cast member now? At this point, why not just add him to the cast for the rest of the season? Anyway, what a hoot. Here’s today’s Scorecard:

Sketch of the Night

“Kids’ Choice Awards” (Grande, Killam, Bayer, Moynihan) After watching months of recent award shows along with the pre-award show shows – and seeing this very type of intro over and over and over – I am convinced this sketch is brilliant. And all the hosts do it! That cheeky, “and it starts … right … nooooooooow!” I have always wondered what it would look like if the show didn’t start … right … noooooooooow. And now I have my answer.

Score: 9.0
