Critic reviews for Jonathan Majors; Taylor Swift
"Ted Cruz Sesame Street Cold Open" managed to continue this season's streak of strong cold opens, despite devolving into just throwing everything at the wall by the end of it all.
Host Jonathan Majors seemed a bit nervous and tongue-tied during his monologue. But he relaxed as the episode rolled on...
Tonight's MVP in terms of screen time and speaking lines goes to Aidy Bryant, as she not only starred in the cold open but also provided vital support to four other live sketches.
Episodes like this make me nervous. You got a superstar like Taylor Swift bringing eyes to the program and the only memorable sketch was a digital collaboration between Pete and Please Don't Destroy.
Coming off strong run, the show definitely stumbled this week, especially during the back half of the program.
