(Newser) – It was Justin Timberlake's fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live last night, and the singer brought his Suit & Tie to knock it out of a star-studded park, notes the Hollywood Reporter, which calls the episode "the biggest of 2013." In his opening monologue, he was joined by fellow five-time hosts Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Candace Bergen, Paul Simon, and Steve Martin—with the latter chiding Timberlake for not being able to play the banjo. Dan Akroyd and Martin Short also appeared in the sketch. Hilarity, Andy Samberg, and an appearance by the Three Amigos ensued during the show. TMZ notes, meanwhile, that Timberlake took a shot right back at Kanye West after the rapper dissed Suit & Tie. Over at Huffington Post, Mike Ryan has his scorecard for the evening.

Reruns of "Storage Wars" would be more entertaining. This show died 15 years ago.

So sad to see how Dan Ackroyd has turned into a beached whale. I used to listen to his radio show, but then a friend told me about Blues Deluxe, another syndicated radio show with much better music. Very cool!

While channel surfing I tuned it to this show during the skit where they all appeared to be wearing toga's or something. It was rather disturbing to witness these people trying to get laughs out of saying the word "penis" numerous times and crudely talking about homosexuality and the likes of sexual perversion. No other clever or funny lines. It was insulting, and I realized I needed to be about 15 years old to accept it as humor. I've tuned in to that show since all the greats and I can tell you they should pull the plug. Anyone who's somewhat of a star shouldn't lower themselves to being on it.
