Kevin Hart Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

TVLine

Kevin Hart fans, I hope you enjoyed The Wedding Ringer this weekend. Because, unfortunately, his Saturday Night Live hosting gig was a pretty dismal affair — packed with head-scratching sketches that should never have made it past the brainstorming stages.

Thankfully, Kate McKinnon helped salvage the hour by introducing a delightfully wacky “Weekend Update” character and skewering everybody’s least-favorite celebrity spokesperson.

Below, my picks for the night’s best and worst sketches.

BEST: Mrs. Santini
McKinnon’s grinning but cantankerous apartment dweller read scathing notes directed at her neighbors — including “the Mario Batali of hot garbage.” Her description of an infected earring hole and explanation of how a vet’s office is similar to a Dunkin’ Donuts were utterly wrong — and totally guffaw-inducing.

BEST: Justin Bieber for Calvin Klein
McKinnon’s delicious takedown of the pint-sized poser included sipped juice boxes, tragic pushups and Cecily Strong as a supermodel cringing her way through supposedly…

He has impersonated a wide range of black women in the entertainment business such as Jennifer Hudson, Mo’Nique, and Maya Angelou.

Eminem Coming Back To Saturday Night Live

97.9 The Beat

As Eminem prepares to release his next album “The Marshall Mathers LP2,” he is making the rounds to promote it and Deadline reports one of his stops will be returning to the ‘Saturday Night Live” stage. Look for him as the musical guest on ‘SNL’ alongside host ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington on November 2.

No word yet on what songs he’ll be performing. I’m guessing they’ll probably be “Berzerk” or, God help him, his new 6-minute non-stop monster “Rap God.” He’ll need all his breath for that one!

Lookout for “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” dropping Nov. 5 and take a listen to “Rap God” below. Warning – Uncensored
