SNL WITH MELISSA MCCARTHY
Melissa McCarthy is best known for Bridesmaids, but she has an extensive resume of films and TV, and won an EMMY for lead actress in Mike & Molly this year.
This was not SNL's best show, but it had moments.
The most inspired was a mockumercial for a doll that gave HPV vaccinations to little girls.
The Opening Monologue had a stylish dance routine.
There were several good jokes in the News segment, and Tyler Perry was well done.
The best and funniest sketch was a parody of a Mae West film on TCM.
Overall, Melissa seemed to be feeling her way a bit, except when she was doing physical comedy, when she went all-out and beyond and was hysterical!
The show ended with a tribute to "terrible love making."
