<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: The Best of Zach Galifianakis and Pals

Now that he's less "bizarre" and more "kinda weird" to mainstream audiences thanks to a ton of exposure since the first time he hosted Saturday Night Live, Zach Galifianakis was able to pull off more experimental gags this week on SNL -- and they were less totally inaccessible than they were the second time he hosted. The former half of the episode was tight, funny and definitely a success by current SNL standards... the latter, not so much. Let's focus on the sketches worth watching:

<I>Saturday Night Live</I>: Maybe They Should Have Just Given Zach Galifiankis All The Airtime

Why is it that this show has trouble doing funny sketches with actual comedians? Like the episode with Bryan Cranston, this one had a solid opening and a few entertaining moments, but it mostly fell flat. Even Zach bizarrely shaving his head just in time for the sign-off couldn't save an episode that fittingly closed with a sketch about the Titanic.

Well, there's at least one person who really wants another season of The Office...

Jon Hamm's Middle Name is Not 'Honey-Baked,' and Other Awkward Hamm Trivia I know we're pretty gushing fangirly about Jon Hamm on this blog, which can be a bit nauseating at times, but when he does stuff like this... it's just hard to fall out of love with him. While making the what must have been excruciating press whore rounds for the tiny part he had in The Day the Earth Stood Still Sucks (nailed it), Hamm stopped by the greatest online fake interview series around, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. It's not quite as awkwardly hilarious as the Michael Cera one, but Hamm is a great sport and is able to keep up with Zach's comedic prowess, which bodes very well for his upcoming 30 Rock stint. Also, he likes websites! So, you know, he's basically our soulmate because we are a website! Yeah, I don't get it either. It's Monday. Clips for both the Hamm and Cera editions below!

The Pretentious Illiterate is Bored to Death

The Pretentious Illiterate is <I>Bored to Death</I> OK, before I thought of that title I was super-psyched about my favorite comedian, Zach Galifianakis, joining the HBO pilot Bored to Death, but now I just can't get over how hilarious the idea of his "Pretentious Illiterate" character playing the part of a "struggling comic book artist" would be. Sadly, that's not the case, but I'll take Zach any way I can get him (I even watched Tru Calling for him. Tru Calling! Zach himself didn't even watch that show!).
