    Default John McCain's SNL appearance

    The clips aren't available online on NBC yet, but I think he did an admirable job - was able to poke fun at his image, unlike Palin and her appearance.

    ^ Yes, he was booed by part of the crowd, but my point was he could at least poke fun at himself and actively participate in the joke, unlike Palin who either just sat there or acted embarrassed standing next to Lorne Michaels.

    I liked the QVC thing with Cindy showing jewelry! He seemed a good sport.

    I think so too. He did a LOT more than Palin.

    That was my favorite part.

    I saw McCain's appearance as begging for votes..

    It will be on here in another 30 minutes. I set the Dish DVR to record it, so I will watch it tomorrow. Maybe.

    well, the McCain part sucked, ESPECIALLY the qvc deal. but ya know? Ben Affleck was great! as Keith Olbermann he was hysterical. i also thought he was good as Alec Baldwin, except i kept seeing William Shatner.

    who the hell is doing the shitty writing on SNL now? there's so much more they can do to be funny, but they arent. the View thing was just stupid. sad.

    I think he did okay. I liked that he got booed during weekend update.

    My favorite part was when Fey talked to the camera holding up the Palin 2012 shirt. It was funny and disturbing at the same time.

    I thought he was pretty good...especially the jabs at Palin!!! He was a good sport.

    Affleck as Olbermann was priceless. Ben's best acting job ever!! I can't wait to see Olbermann talk about it.

    I thought it was great! He was a good sport and had fun making of himself. I don't know that it was necessarily begging for votes as most people have decided by now.. but regardles...it wasn't too bad!

    SNL just isn't as funny anymore. At least David Cook was hot!

    I have watched a few things online, didn't see the actual show.

    I thought the QVC thing was ok---not a knock out, but good. He worked it. And I thought Cindy was funny.

    Ben Affleck was funny as Obermann. Though I didn't think he was good as Alec Baldwin..so...

    Overall, a fair rating from me. I'm still catching more skits on the net. So far, not super impressed.
