If you asked me a year ago who my favorite SNL host was, I probably would have said Steve Martin, Buck Henry or Alec Baldwin. Now, without a doubt it's Justin Timberlake.
Yeah, I'm having a hard time with it myself. I'm not a JT fanboi by any strech of the imagination. I can only name 1 song he sings and it's "Dick in a Box" from SNL. But I have to admit he has talent as an actor.
Whenever Justin is on SNL, things just seem to come together. The writing is better, the skits are funnier and you actually laugh out loud instead of wondering why SNL is still on the air. Whether it's a cameo or hosting they bring the funny when Justin's around.
The writer's have managed to put together a running skit with Justin as a singing shill in a costume. It's greatness.
