Saying last night’s episode of SNL fell short of expectations would be the understatement of the year. Host Martin Short didn’t disappoint; his brand of physical comedy and impeccable comedic timing were refreshing, but he didn’t have adequate material to work with. As expected, the episode was star-studded — complete with cameos from other SNL alums and show favorites — but the celebrity guests acted as background props for the most part instead of contributing to skits. However, every time Paul McCartney took the stage, his tender voice wiped  my memory clean of any mediocre jokes that preceded his stellar performance. »
