'Saturday Night Live': Adam Levine Reads a Lot of Cue Cards and Takes Off His Shirt

The Maroon 5 front man joins a Sopranos reboot, sings with Lonely Island, and shows off his tattoos.

"Saturday Night Live" managed to improve on last week, which sadly wasn't too hard to do. Half of last Saturday night contained at least pleasantly humorous sketches, which helped balance the usual WTF? moments. Host Adam Levine seemed game for the comedy gig, but unfortunately this won't go down as one of his finest performances.

Best of the Night

It's getting to the point where "Saturday Night Live" might want to consider morphing into "Saturday Night Video," since their taped segments tend to have a lot more creativity and laughs than the live stuff. This week's treat was a spoof on "The Carrie Diaries" concept, using the origin story of "The Sopranos" instead. Set wrongly in the 80s, this high school sketch had hilarious costuming and some spot-on impressions of the cast, particularly Tony (Bobby Moynihan) and Carmela (Kate McKinnon). Watch all the flirting, fighting, and bursts of violence against the principal at the "SNL" video site.

Levine was basically a prop in his own "Saturday Night Live" monologue, feeding lines to three special guest stars in the spinning "Voice" chairs: Andy Samberg, Cameron Diaz, and Jerry Seinfeld. The guest reveals were worth the wait, with extra points for the faux Xtina's tiny hat, and the guest host took his shirt off. There's no way this can go anywhere but the "win" column.

Whatever else the "Saturday Night Live" Weekend Update did, it gets "Best of" status for Nasim Pedrad's entertaining impression of Arianna Huffington, who rambled her way through commentary on Hillary Clinton being interrogated "like she's Casey Anthony," which morphed into Europe smelling like sex and how the show "Wives with Knives" proves women in combat is no big thing.

Other highlights included two more videos. Lonely Island offered a paranoid and agoraphobic view on "You Only Live Once," and this week's "SNL" commercial illustrated how useful the Rosetta Stone language program is for picking up hookers in Thailand. Check out these and all the best "Saturday Night Live" videos on their website.

Worst of the Night

These are the moments when you feel the inmates are running the asylum. "Saturday Night Live" decided it would be funny to have Bill Hader play a gay fireman who goes all drama queen when he sees an "ex-girlfriend" talking to another guy. This meant the actor literally screamed in a shrill voice for the entire sketch, and ended in a fight with a stuffed dog. Don't ask, there is no answer.

It also didn't help that the sketch followed not long after Levine and Kenan Thompson played hosts on a gay TV show that helps straight people with their problems. The "Saturday Night Live" guest star never got comfortable delivering his bitchy lines, and the premise of "every guy is gay!" just wasn't made into anything funny.

Once again "Saturday Night Live" rolled out the guy-in-drag comedy bit so they could have Moynihan's buxom, deep-voiced lady roofie the lead singer of Maroon 5 and then try to sleep with him. The dialogue provided a few laughs, but Levine was reading cue cards so doggedly that it was impossible to ever get into the sketch or for the two to get any comedy chemistry going.

Final Verdict

The guest host is an entertaining presence at his regular TV gig, a judge on "The Voice." Sadly, that interesting combo of sexy rock star and awkward dork who happily bickers with his costars was largely absent on "SNL," leaving the Maroon 5 front man misused or stranded as an afterthought in most of the night's sketches. Considering the use of three taped segments and the should-have-been-on-the-cutting-room-floor quality of some of the material, it's possible they never got things in order enough for Levine to learn his lines properly.

"Saturday Night Live" musical guest Kendrick Lamar performed "Swimming Pools" and "Poetic Justice." I have to admit that these are the kinds of songs I fast-forward through. If Lamar is your kind of artist, feel free to share if you thought it was good, bad, or just a snooze-worthy performance.

What did you think, "Saturday Night Live" fans? Much better than last week, or just as bad? Should Adam stick to singing?
