Jennifer Lopez brings the right energy to an above average SNL that finally makes good use of its host.
If there's one thing people should take away from this episode - other than the fact that Jennifer Lopez wasn't here to read cue cards and knew her lines from the jump... it's that Christmas carolers need to up their game.
Once again, Lopez comes at the material with an energy and zeal that really feeds the other players. There are pieces that don't hit, sure, but there are more than enough sketches that give Lopez room to invest.
The best sketches this week celebrated her star power while still letting the Not Ready For Primetime Players have their moments as well.
This is the most forgettable episode of the season, neither J-Lo's star power nor the big-name guests elevating the one-note sketches.
What a fun episode.
The succession of sketches whose joke was all about how freaking gorgeous and, yes, fabulous Lopez is could have been off-putting, if she weren't so in on the joke.
Not a great episode - ugh, no thanks to Colin Jost's canned bemusement over Weekend Update"jokes like their dig at the maligned Peloton ad... But there were laughs to be had, like in the Barry's Boot Camp sketch.
Jennifer Lopez had the unfortunate task of following Will Ferrell's well-received return to Saturday Night Live. To her credit, she more than held her own - even when the material wasn't quite up to par.
Not bad, J. Lo. Not bad at all.
A slightly funnier-than-average episode thanks to an unusual reliance on recurring characters and sketches.
