I agree with this assessment, except I would switch the monologue to "Hit", and the Lulu Diamonds sketch to "Miss". I'm liking Taran Killam, he's a funny dude, and his dancing in the monologue was cracking me up.
I thought overall, this is the strongest episode in quite some time. The only thing that really missed for me was the All My Children sketch, and even that one had a few laughs in it. I like the fact that they went with all original ideas (except for the screen tests, of course). I was most impressed.
I can't believe it. I was so excited to read this review, but then I get "it wasn’t awful and I liked it okay"? I almost stopped watching halfway through, and I wanted to like it. I think between my friend and I, there were 3 mild chuckles throughout the whole show. I know it's just the pilot, and I may give it another shot because, like I said, I want to like it, but wow, what a dog turd that was. I guess it didn't help that it followed such a great episode of The Office.
@KidPresentable: Really?!....Really?! To me it's more like "Yes! They're doing another one!" It doesn't even matter who they're roasting, it's really funny, every time. If you really need a reason why you should watch, I mean, Anthony Jeselnik.
