He started the show with a ‘Thank You’ note to Jimmy Fallon which was a tribute to Jimmy who would do thank you notes every Friday. I wasn’t a big fan of the set. Looked like a game show and unfinished. He opened with a monologue during which he acknowledge his first bomb lol. Afterwards he sat down to tell a story, which gave a very ‘Weekend Update’ vibe. I’m so excited for Fred Armisen!
Amy Poehler was great. She tried to help him prepare for the not so fun guests. As all Parks & Rec fans feel, it was great to see Lesley Knope and Joe Biden together! Biden wasn’t as loose as I had hoped. He was pretty focused on politics.
It was smart of Seth to have his SNL castmates there to help ease the stress. As for all new hosts, it will take him some time to find his groove. Jimmy Fallon is certainly getting better than his first episode. Seth is bringing his own style to the show.
