There are Sarah Palin impersonations eerily close to reality: Tina Fey’s instant-classic comic version, and Julianne Moore’s dramatic one in the current HBO film Game Change. Then there’s Andy Samberg’s Sarah, unveiled on SNL.

Lindsay Lohan hosted SNL last night and the less said about that the better. Was Lorne Michaels trying to do her a favor? Or latch onto tabloid hype?

Channing Tatum did a pretty funny Matthew McConaughey impression in a not-so-funny sketch on SNL, and while he was a fine host overall the show didn’t really belong to him.

The SNL writers didn’t do Daniel Radcliffe many favors, as he smiled his way through sketches that should have been funnier (like Harry Potter can’t stay away from Hogwarts). The best was totally unexpected: Radcliffe, deadpan on Weekend Update, as Casey Anthony’s scared-for-his-life dog.
