They had done "Five-Timers Club" before, back when Tom Hanks or Alec Baldwin hit that mark. All I can recall for sure is that Steve Martin was there that time too.
In my opinion ...
Most of the show was all right, and while usually I find the character visit during the news unbearable, Bill Hader was hilarious as Stefon last night.
"It's a Date" was good.
Timberlake's obligatory mascot appearance would have been better if he hadn't been swallowing his lyrics and I could have made them out.
"Moët & Chandon" was OK to see once, but I hope they don't try to revisit it: it's spent.
The prerecorded "She's Got a ____" (even if I type it as shown on the screen, AVS's filter will probably still obliterate it) started OK, but it was too obvious where it was going even before the screen or Kenan Thompson's character gave it away, and it went on too long. It lost its charm less than 1/4 of the way in, and unfortunately, as a separately filmed item, it's going to be repeated.
"Tales of Sober Caligula" was awful, and "Maine Justice" fell completely flat, as it did the first time. I wonder whether anyone involved in SNL knows the etymology of the word "Cajun" anyway.
We certainly learned from Seth Meyers's stove clock joke that nobody on the staff can count.
I'll probably rewatch it and edit the above.
