Saturday Night Live: Drew Barrymore

Just three weeks in and it’s safe to say this won’t be the year SNL breaks out of its latest slump. Almost all of the sketches were totally forgettable and unfunny. Even the digital short was just okay.

The only high points in this week’s episode were Kenan Thompson’s Maya Angelou; Barrymore’s boyfriend Justin Long doing his spot-on Matthew McConaughey impression; and the Ladies Billiards sketch.

Also, if Fred Armisen is going to keep doing Obama this much, his impression really needs to improve.
