SNL: Just The Funny Parts: “Mmm, That’s Some Good Hamm!”

You don’t have to be a Mad Men junkie to have noticed that this week’s SNL’s funniest parts involved its talented host, Jon Hamm, who proved he can do comedy as well as brooding and mysterious drama. The show seems to have either blown its wad on the political stuff, or just taking a break from being funny with it this week.
