Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band looked so happy to be playing live last night on “SNL” and they sounded great. They performed “Ghosts” and “I’ll See You in My Dreams” from the new “Letter to You” album. Their demeanor was actually ebullient. It was like a Chanukah gift!
The show had very good sketches last night including The Dionne Warwick Talk Show– right on the money, very funny– and a parody of Newsmax with Beck Bennett and Timothee Chalamet. There were some political sketches but the show was a lot more even handed last night, less reliant on bashing Trump as we transition into the Biden era. Great to see Cecily Strong back, but Aidy Bryant and Kenan Thompson seemed AWOL.
