    Barely there Lindsay Lohan flops in an otherwise standard Saturday Night Live

    Last night’s Saturday Night Live was one of the most anticipated of the current season, seeing as constantly embattled actress Lindsay Lohan was returning as its host for her fourth time and after a six-year absence.

    Review: Saturday Night Live, Dec. 12

    Dec. 12, 2009 — Host: Taylor Lautner — Musical Guest: Bon Jovi SNL shows no indication of letting up on the Tiger Woods jokes anytime soon. The tone was set with an “Adulterers Press Conference” cold open, in which politicians John Edwards (Will Forte), Mark Sanford (Jason Sudeikis) and John Ensign (Bill Hader) criticized the media for focusing so much on the Tiger Woods scandal… instead of theirs’.
