This is Jason Segel’s first time hosting and cast member Vanessa Bayer‘s first time doing the promos with the host, a subject they touch on in the promos. We’d be OK with Jason Segel being our first time too, Vanessa (for doing promos. Duh. What were you thinking?)
There’s also a pretty funny joke about “How I Met Your Mother.” Segel’s, “That’s not the way she tells it” made us laugh pretty hard. And it’s nice to see Bayer get the spotlight. They don’t use her enough on “SNL.”
“Saturday Night Live” with Jason Segel airs Saturday, Nov. 19 on NBC.
