Critic reviews for Rami Malek; Young Thug

Sketches like "Bug Assembly" and "Celeb School Game Show," for example, worked, but they were also fine at worst. It's a good problem to have, especially when it's a first-time hosting situation.

This was Bowen Yang's night. His characters demanded your attention, from his Daddy Long Legs to his Oompa Loompa to his George Takei, all three proved time and again that Yang brings an "Oh, my!" influence to every episode since he joined the cast.

Hell yeah, we got ourselves a proper host. Rami Malek understood the assignment.

After a bit of a rocky start, Malek ended up acquitted himself just fine as host, although the contrast between him and the far more charismatic and comedically inclined Craig didn't do him any favors.

Wow, am pleasantly surprised by Malek tonight.

Malek's off-center presence tonight made for a consistently funny, ensemble-centric show.
