‘Sump’n Claus’ Has Something For The Naughty In Amiable ‘SNL’

In his first outing as host, Martin Freeman took Saturday Night Live to Middle Earth by way of The Office, as well as Fargo, N.D. in an amiable if standard-issue show that featured a Weekend Update segment that was mostly DOA, that terrific take on The Office, a dopey Fargo-drawn bit about waterbeds and a funny, if way-overlong sketch called “Sump’n Claus” in which everyone who’s naughty gets a cash reward from that other sort-of Santa, played by Kenan Thompson. Check out the video clip above if you need a little sump’n too.

As for the musical talent, Charli XCX, well there was neither music nor talent, though there were hot pants — but that’s just my opinion. What’s yours?
