Could not agree more. I was just telling someone this and, don't get me wrong I think JT is one of the greatest hosts of all time, but there is no question that material was saved just for this episode. From NuvaBling, to Stefon. And as you pointed out I usually turn it off after Weekend Update but the very last skit with the champagne was one of the best of the night. Shame it took all season to finally have a good episode. And everything about that Suit and Tie performance was aces.
The christoph waltz episode was very good too
