Well, yes, this was disappointing, especially with Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosting. This has felt like a strangely long season – and a sort of quietly very good season – but maybe people are tired. Let’s hope everyone rallies when Brie Larson hosts on May 7. Here is today’s Scorecard:

Sketch of the Night

“Match.com Event” (Louis-Dreyfus, McKinnon, ensemble) As I’m typing this, I can’t decide if this is the Sketch of the Night or the worst thing that aired on the show. Seriously, I have no idea how to grade something like this. I find myself in awe of it and repulsed by it at the same time. Okay, here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to flip a coin because I need fate to intervene. No mere humble human can make this choice alone. Okay, here goes … “heads.” Funny thing, I forgot to assign what heads would mean. This is getting stupid. You know what, screw it, it’s going at the top because at least it’s memorable. I’ll probably never forget this sketch as long as I live. It will haunt me.

Score: 7.5
