Weakest Episode of First Year
21 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Candice Bergen is back for another turn as host but this one is one of the weaker first season episodes. The comedy in this one is not as sharp as some episodes for one thing.

For the other, this episode is too traditional with the Christmas music. Some of that is OK but some of the Christmas music is poorly performed, the singing is just plain poor by folks who should not have sung these songs. This show has little flow.

Highlight is Canidce Bergen & the Bees Ice Skating at Rockefeller center & the Bees doing June Taylor Dancer type of formations. That is the main highlight. Think the SNL writers let Al Franken write too much in this one, or just went on Xmas vacation early.
