Jon Hamm Steamed up SNL

Let me admit my bias up front: I wanted Jon Hamm to succeed on Saturday Night Live. I'd never heard of him before Mad Men and ever since I started watching the show, I've had a major crush.

But when it was announced that Hamm would host SNL, I wondered if he could be funny, convincingly lighthearted. The answer is, "Yes." Hamm knocked it out of the ballpark.

My favorite bit, of course, was the Don Draper sketch about how to get a woman. (Link here.)

Then there was the sketch which spoofed Mad Men and featured Elisabeth Moss and John Slattery. Best part was the lampooning of Don's "The Wheel" pitch at the end of season one. (Link here.)
