For those who didn't make it past 11:00pm this past Saturday night (sissy!), you probably missed Megan Fox's much talked-about appearance as host of Saturday Night Live's season premiere. Actually, in reality, more people are talking about SNL newbie Jenny Slate's slip of the tongue (she accidentally dropped an F-bomb during a skit about biker chicks) than Megan Fox's acting, but we're more concerned with Ms. Fox and, well, whether or not you thought she held her own in the comedic arena. Here's my opinion …
Rate Megan Fox's SNL Performance
The Good: The Digital Short featuring a date between Megan Fox and Andy Sandberg that's interrupted by Fox's roommate Optimus Prime was probably the highlight of the show for me – in terms of sketches that actually featured Fox. Though bizarre and a little strange (what was with the Transformer nudity?), I definitely chuckled when Fox's boyfriend Brian Austin Green made a surprise appearance as Bumblebee.
The Bad: Every other sketch that featured Megan Fox. Seriously, maybe it's the writing, but they just couldn't find much to do with this gal other than have her sex it up, throw on an accent and hope for the best. Oh, and she never mentioned Jennifer's Body in her opening monologue? What was up with that? The film is tanking at the box office – she's hosting the season premiere of SNL – and unlike every other host who pimps the movie they're currently starring in, Fox instead promoted Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen…which came out three months ago. For shame, Megan! For shame!
Her Final Score: On a scale of 1-10, with one being "Please Never Host This Show Again" and ten being "I Wish She'd Host Every Week", I'd give Megan Fox a 4 … but only because it was her first time and the writing on SNL is horrible.
For those who watched the show, what did you think of Megan Fox's hosting abilities? Feel free to rate her on my 1-10 scale in the comments below, and check out clips from the show over on Hulu.
