Well, when you get to the peak, there's very little place to go but down.
After last week's very strong, very funny Melissa McCarthy episode, "Saturday Night Live" plummets back to mediocrity. The charming Vince Vaughn, returning to host the show for the first time in 15 years, couldn't do much to help the poorly-written, flat, and sometimes uncomfortable sketches.
His monologue, which relied on his effortless charisma, was one of the evening's better efforts. He came out and talked about how important the audience is to the show, then proceeded to talk to a few of them. According to "SNL's" Tumblr page, Vaughn was improv-ing and everyone he spoke to did not know they were going to get picked. One woman he called his "angel in the outfield," while he took another man's cell phone away. "It's OK to put down the phones and just make a memory," he said.
But Vaughn's innate likeability couldn't save the rest of the night.
Check out the best and (several) worst sketches:
