Open Thread: Prodigal Son Will Ferrell Returns

So! Will Ferrell and Usher are hosting SNL tonight. As far as I'm concerned, the MVPs of Saturday Night Live returning to host at their comedy alma mater is a severe hit-and-miss (and yes, I am implicating Tina Fey's vitriolic slut-shaming rant about Michelle McGee as a decided "miss"). On the other hand, Maya Rudolph's slam-dunk hosting stint brought us "I Know Why The Caged Bird Laughs," which was fucking perfect, not least due to Bill Hader's super-underrated Steven King impression.

Do you feel confident that Ferrell can pull it off? Can't Rachel Dratch come back to do a "Lovers" sketch? "Our bellies full and skin glistening with goat meat?"
