Jason Segel, the Muppets, and cameos by Paul Rudd and Olivia Wilde were enough to make this weekend's "Saturday Night Live" the highest-rated episode of the season, pulling in as many 18-49 viewers as the excellent Charlie Day episode a few weeks ago. (Oh, and Florence + the Machine were there, too.)
Fittingly, the quality of the show matched Day's energetic performance as host. While I find the Kissing Family sketch to be insultingly stupid and cheap, I'll admit that there are probably Warming Glow readers who want to see Jason Segel's tongue in Paul Rudd's mouth. So there you go.
On the following pages are my favorite sketches of the night, including an '80s-hot Olivia Wilde and Segel's incredible Andre the Giant impression.
I've never not enjoyed the Muppets singing a song.
Nothing but masturbation jokes. I approve.
The only way this could be better is if it were Kermit and Tina Fey.
This is great. It probably wasn't worth building a full-length sketch around Segel's pitch-perfect Andre the Giant impression, but this is quirky enough to be funny without overstaying its welcome. One of the highlights of the night for me.
