Believe it or not, it’s been 14 years since Charlize Theron hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the first time, all the way back in 2000. With “A Million Ways To Die in the West” heading to theaters, the actress returned to host again with musical guest The Black Keys.
Right from the beginning, Theron was able to right a major wrong from her first stint, with the musical number she was denied way back when. Of course, she was denied due to her terrible singing voice, but who cares? It led to a fun monologue.
The episode was notable, if only or it’s lack of celebrity guests that have seemingly come to dominate “SNL” recently. The only real surprise was Barbara Walters showing up during “Weekend Update” to make fun of herself before retiring from “The View.”
Not all of the sketches hit, but “HBO First Look: Dragon Babies” and that cat ladies commercial were among the highlights. There was also that take on a surfer movie about a dead whale, which was a bizarre kind of fun
What did you think of Theron as host? Sound off in the poll below.
Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
