SNL with Scarlett Johansson (11/14/2010) was above average. There were more than the usual number of funny and very funny pieces; fewer duds.
Scarlett was very good: she was game for anything, her timing was perfect, and she was always in character, and funny. Some of the new cast members got significant airtime and did well.
But one piece stood out, way out: The star of the show was the riotous version of UNSTOPPABLE with Scarlett. New cast member Jay Pharoah as Denzel (I think it was Jay -- it might almost have been Denzel) was terrific. It was one of the best written skits ever. And perfectly executed. It's a new, classic SNL skit; it joins the pantheon.
