Phelps should have rested before SNL but otherwise decent show!
2 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps had the great honor of hosting Saturday Night Like like some other athletes in the past like Chris Everett who I thought was the best and the Rock and others. Well, Michael Phelps had just earned 8 Olympic Gold Medals before coming to Saturday Night Live. He was okay but not spectacular and after watching the Anderson Cooper interview on Sixty Minutes the other night. Phelps was clearly exhausted by the coverage and his new life as spokesman as well as maintaining his physiques. I loved the McSwimmy segment of Grey's Anatomy with him wearing nothing but his swimsuit and medals. There was plenty of outside material like the upcoming election. He was also good in a sketch about inbred children of a polygamous cult who are home schooled by a deranged teacher participating in a television game show challenge against public school students. Still, Phelps was not spectacular but he did provide a decent showing. He is not an actor or comedian who usually graces the show but Phelps is a phenomenon today.
