Adam Levine Hosts SNL: Was He Funny?

This weekend’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” might have left viewers longing for the good old days of mediocrity featuring the likes of Ellen Cleghorne, Rich Hall and Tim Kazurinsky. After all, even the “Sniglets” were funnier than a majority of this week’s episode. And a big part of the problem just might be placed squarely on the shoulders of host Adam Levine.
It might surprise some fans considering that the Maroon 5 frontman has become quite the popular TV personality on “The Voice.” His bromance-infused banter with fellow mentor Blake Shelton gives the show a bit of charm. He’s even dipped his toe into acting with a bloody but brief turn on “American Horror Story: Asylum.” But this weekend Levine probably learned that those two experiences are child’s play in relation to live sketch comedy.
While Levine shined singing in the Lonely Planet short “YOLO,” he struggled through a significant portion of the episode. Everyone knows the rigors of the “SNL” schedule are intense and rewrites are doled out up until showtime. But clearly the pop star hasn’t mastered the fine art of cue card reading yet, which was evident in any of the skits that burdened him with more than a couple of lines of dialogue. What do you think: Was Adam Levine funny on “SNL”?
