Last night on Saturday Night Live, Paul Rudd hosted and One Direction was the musical guest. Now, one would think that it was just another typical episode. There were some winner sketches, some absolutely horrible sketches, and then a mediocre performance by whatever musical group was hip at the moment. Last night was all set up to be another par for the course SNL, until Kristen Wiig graced the stage in a surprise that had audience members screaming.
I seriously yelped when she came on stage to reprise her hilarious and creepy character of Dooneese from The Lawrence Welk Show skits. Fred Armisen even came back to help out! It was already off to an amazing start. Things just got better from there. Maybe it’s because Paul Rudd is so damn likable or maybe it’s because the writing was super on point last night, but for the first time since whenever the last time Justin Timberlake hosted, I was laughing out loud.
