(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan showed up, apparently sober, and actually got some laughs last night on Saturday Night Live, poking fun at herself during the monologue and a "Scared Straight" skit. "Lindsay Lohan appeared healthy, upbeat, and pulled together (if somewhat surgically adjusted) and—putting to rest speculation that she might crash and burn spectacularly on live television—comported herself just fine in what proved to be an uneven episode," writes Sage Stossel in the Atlantic.

On Mediaite, Sarah Devlin writes that "Lindsay seemed game for anything so far (and looked really lovely!)," but notes that she was quite obviously reading from the teleprompter during "Scared Straight." The Washington Post and Entertainment Weekly were not as impressed, noting that Lohan was largely in the background, but acknowledging that it wasn't a disaster.
