Bryan Cranston is a very funny man, and clearly a talented actor, but his appearance on SNL last night was upstaged by newbie Vanessa Bayer, who debuted her spot-on Miley Cyrus impression, and by Kanye West's intense musical performances.
The 36th season of Saturday Night Live premiered last night, and though former cast member Amy Poehler was the night's host, she wasn't the only blast from the past who made an appearance.
With all of the hype leading up to Betty White's hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, it seemed impossible for the show to live up to everyone's expectations. But once Betty White showed up on stage, the impossible became possible:
I think it's safe to say that most of us had pretty high hopes for last night's Gabourey Sidibe-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live. And though the show wasn't perfect, there were some pretty great moments:
I don't think anyone really had super high expectations going into last night's SNL, as host Ryan Phillippe isn't exactly renowned for his comedy skills. And while the show was indeed pretty slow overall, there were a few highlights:
Tina Fey's return to Saturday Night Live had its ups, downs, and delicious brownie husbands:

When Charles Barkley was announced as the host of Saturday Night Live's first show of 2010, the collective response in our comments was "huh?" Surely there must be some reason why SNL was bringing Sir Charles back to host, right?
James Franco did his best to give us a solid show during the final Saturday Night Live of the decade last night, and though the show didn't really give us anything new, it was still a pretty good time overall.
Though last night's SNL wasn't a terribly memorable episode, there were a few highlights, including another strong digital short from Andy Samberg, a silly take on Gossip Girl, and a series of commercials starring the great Bill Hader.
Last night's episode of Saturday Night Live was one of the worst episodes I've seen in quite a long time. My guess is that most of the blame will go to host January Jones, but I'm not sure that's fair.
