Lindsay Lohan on Saturday Night Live: Hit or Miss?

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and ... meh.

We wouldn't say she bombed last by any means, but we expected better. Maybe all the hype and expectations were just too much, or the show itself just isn't that good.

In any case, it left something to be desired from start to finish.

Several late changes - such as ditching a singing monologue in favor of one with cameos from Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm (above) - may not have helped matters.

Some critics and fans are calling it an epic fail (EW asks in its headline if she was the worst host all season), but people are also predisposed to hate on Lohan.

Linds did look a bit tired, worn out and nervous, but that's to be expected, and she can't take all the blame for mediocre skits. Do you agree? Vote in our poll:

A good change for Lindsay Lohan. She could perform live music on SNL.

I thought she did great. I'm still a loyal SNL fan after all these years, but the skits do get kind of lame, and the writing was not the best on this episode--not Lindsay's fault. She does seem to be getting her act together finally; please give her the benefit of the doubt! This cannot be easy for her after all she has gone through (put herself through) so publicly. I am rooting for her. However, I do hope she was really paying attention to what just happened to Whitney Houston, who just could never get herself back on track.

I liked when Keenan checked her eyes to see if ehe was HIGH!! and when she got "FRISKED" FOR POSSIBLY STEALING SOMETHING! OTHER THAN THAT:SHE SUCKED!

I THOUGHT THE OPENING MONOLOGUE WAS O.K. UNTIL FALLON SCREWED IT UP. IF YOU WERE WATCHING HIS SHOW WHEN LINDSEY WAS ON, SHE ASK HIM TO DO A CAMIO BUT IT SEEMED AWKWARD AND DID NOT FIT THE SNL SKIT. THE FUNNIEST THING IN THE WHOLE SHOW WAS WHEN SHE DID THE SCARED STRAIGHT SKIT AND INTRODUCED HERSELF AS LINDSEY LOHAN. JACK WHITE WAS BEYOND BAD!!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT GOES DOWN AS MUSIC THESE DAYS.........

She was the host of SNL, so viewers have the right and expectation to comment on her performance, which was pathetic. She's supposed to be a pretty accomplished actress at this point, not someone off the street who's just learning how to act in front of a camera. Her blatant reading of cue cards was awful, given that she supposedly had a week to rehearse. I feel sorry for her that she's reportedly trying to stage a comeback, and this was the best she could do. I've been a fan of hers, and wanted her to succeed.

There are so many people that love to "hate" on Lindsay. I think they should step off & give her a break. She made her mistakes & she's gotten past them & is on the right track now. All of you that "hate" on her are no better than bullies in school. Give her a break-at least she's trying & I think she did a great job. You did great Lindsey you have nothing to be ashamed about & nothing to hold you back. Keep it up & your on the right path-don't waver. Much love...

I feel like saying give the kid a break already. There is this "I hate Lindsay" campaign. People did the same thing with Britney. The constant bashing and people totally looked the other way when it was quite obvious the girl was having a breakdown. I really hate this part of human nature. This need to see people fail and to laugh and point. She did fine. Except for The Disney Houswives skit the skits weren't that great. What is up with this meaness that seems to be invading society? It seems to be getting worst. Is is social media and the ability to hide behind a keyboard? I know the current crop of Rebulican candidates isn't helping. They are making it a campaign pledge to deny the rights of citizens whose lifestyle THEY don't agree with. That is a form of bullying. I just don't get it.

The last really good year for Saturday Night Live was 1979. It's been downhill ever since. In fact, it is sooooooooooooooo bad, I refuse to watch it. The early years, however, were EPIC!!!
