While I was hoping to get a little bit more from Will Ferrell returning to Saturday Night Live for his fifth time as host, this was still a fairly enjoyable episode.

As an all-time great cast member, one of the best things about Will Ferrell as a host is that he's not afraid to share the comedic spotlight with others.

This is basically the kind of monologue only Ferrell can pull off. Tracy Morgan shows up and it goes off the rails, in the best kind of way.

The end result offered some laughs, but was hardly funny enough to justify the menagerie, which basically describes the whole episode.

Farrell's game hosting and the stream of surprise guests improved an otherwise bland episode, although given the sheer volume of talent on stage throughout the night it's disappointing memorable moments were in short supply.

It was the best monologue of the still-young season, and one of the many highlights from this weekend's above-average show (which admittedly got off to a rough start with that lazy, laugh-free cold open).

Rather than look at this episode as a failure, perhaps it's better look at it as the prime example of how absolutely nothing about this show is predictable.

"Heinz" is a funny commercial parody about those awkward, and trite jokes about big meal toots. And the reveal - that ketchup bottle farting has been replaced with sexual moaning - is clever.

What could be more reliable than a Will Ferrell-hosted SNL?

No matter how dire the sketch, Will Ferrell is in.
