(Newser) – Zach Galifianakis took his third turn as guest host of Saturday Night Live last night, and while his latest effort "never soared to the heights of his first few outings," it was nevertheless "a solidly funny night that featured a few inspired moments," writes Hillary Busis for Entertainment Weekly. The episode kicked off by again spoofing Fox & Friends, this time with the crew reacting to Jason Collins' coming out; Huffington Post rounds up their "riotous" corrections. But despite some misses, Galifianakis "saves the best for last," writes Mike Ryan for Huffington Post, with "one of the most ambitious sketches in recent memory"—"Darrell's House Parts 1 and 2." Catch both segments in the gallery.

I only watched the Darrell's House bits. Nice payoff.

Sad that he bombed; he obviously gave it his all (which obviously isn't very good, though.) Hope Kristen's show is MUCH, MUCH better!
