Saturday Night Live - Josh Brolin

Best skits of the night:

Cold Open - Mitt Romney (Jason Sudeikis) and Rick Santorum (Andy Samberg) head to a bar to commiserate/celebrate the campaign.  Rick orders a chocolate milk and Mitt orders a napkin.  They start singing "Time of Your Life"and one by one, past candidates come in to join the celebration.  Rick Perry (Bill Hader), Michelle Bachmann (Kristen Wiig), and Herman Cain (Kenan Thompson) each get their own verse, but they all hide when Newt Gingrich (Bobby Moynihan) walks in and steals nuts from the bowls.  (Noticeably absent was Ron Paul, as Paul Brittain quit/was fired in January.)

Piers Morgan - CNN's Morgan (Taran Killam) wants to talk about the Trayvon Martin case but can't get guests anywhere close to the situation, so he winds up asking people like Kim Kardashian (Nesrim Pedrad) and Kanye West (Jay Pharaoh) their opinions.


Weekend Update - The jokes weren't good this week, and the singing group Garth & Kat (Fred Armisen and Wiig) ceased to be funny about four appearances ago.


Brolin wasn't given much to do, odd considering it's his second time hosting.
