70% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Halsey (TV Episode) All told, McAvoy killed it as host in what was the most consistently enjoyable episode of the season. - Guardian EDIT

69% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - James McAvoy; Meek Mill (TV Episode) It appears 2019 will be more of the same when it comes to the show's lazy political content, as this was yet another cold open that seemed to equate satire with basic reference. - Guardian EDIT

79% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Rachel Brosnahan; Greta Van Fleet (TV Episode) There were a few strong sketches and no outright bad ones. A happy swan song for 2018. - Guardian EDIT

42% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Matt Damon; Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus (TV Episode) SNL has shown itself adept at slapstick, so it's disappointing it wasn't able to make better use of Momoa's physicality. - Guardian EDIT

73% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Jason Momoa; Mumford & Sons (TV Episode) Regardless, [Foy's] subtle-but-strong turn as host, a handful of hilarious sketches and two dynamite performances from Paak made this the best episode of the season thus far, by far. - Guardian EDIT

29% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Steve Carell; Ella Mai (TV Episode) A fitting end to dare I say a lazy episode. - Guardian EDIT

73% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Liev Schreiber; Lil Wayne (TV Episode) I found the whole thing embarrassing, not only because it's the latest in a long history of SNL capitulation to conservative indignation... but also because it was indicative of the show's schmaltzy centrism. - Guardian EDIT

100% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Jonah Hill; Maggie Rogers (TV Episode) Even though a sense of deflation could be felt for the show's back half, Hill's confidence as host, along with a string of sharp political sketches and welcome cameos, combined to make this by far the strongest episode of the season. - Guardian EDIT

92% The Conners: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Gilbert also proves surprisingly adept at switching between drama and comedy (not to sell her previous work short, but she's had less opportunity to show off her chops over the years). - Guardian EDIT

69% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Seth Meyers; Paul Simon (TV Episode) It makes for a flat ending to what was otherwise the most consistent episode of the season, Meyers proving that returning cast members make the most natural hosts. - Guardian EDIT

17% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Awkwafina; Travis Scott (TV Episode) Here's hoping the writing throughout this season is more focused than it was tonight. - Guardian EDIT

30% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Adam Driver; Kanye West (TV Episode) The hot buttons were brushed, if not fully pushed, the sketches were more miss than hit, Driver made for a game and likable host, and Kanye Kanye'd. - Guardian EDIT
