'Saturday Night Live' - Russell Brand / Chris Brown Recap

One is a fluke. Two is a coincidence. But three solid episodes of 'Saturday Night Live' in a row is straight-up legendary. Jesse Eisenberg and Dana Carvey did their jobs, and it was up to Russell Brand to bring his European game to the states and light it up. I had all the confidence in the world that he would, if nothing else, mix things up. He has somewhat of a bad boy lothario reputation, which isn't easy for British dudes to pull off with the accent and the tea and the blacksmiths.

We preferred the use of his wife's talents back in September.  After a decent cold open where Jason Sudeikis as Bill O'Reilly had President Obama (Fred Armisen) on "The O'Reilly Factor, Russell Brand gave an England vs. America monologue that addressed his tight pants, past life with a drug problem and being married now and settling down.
