Lindsay Lohan tanks on SNL – poll

Lindsay Lohan‘s appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend pulled in some surprising numbers — it brought the show into the top time slot for that night, beating all other major networks. It was also the second most-watched episode of the season. Lohan spent a better part of the show poking fun at her own personal struggles, including quips about her drug use, shoplifting charge and house arrest. And although the hosting gig was supposed to be her big career comeback, it was met with more criticism than praise. Entertainment Weekly went so far as calling her the “worst host of the year” and many viewers immediately took to Twitter to share their harsh reviews, with one user writing, “This may be the first time Lindsay Lohan had trouble doing lines.” Sources close to the actress told gossip site TMZ that despite the brutal critiques, the actress is proud of her performance and feels she did the best she could.

How do you think Lindsay Lohan did with hosting SNL?

    If that was the best she could do then she should stop wasting the time of the public that deserve better, someone with talent who can do better. She’s burnt out and doesn’t even care.

    People are just being way too hard on her. I think she did great – way to go Lindsay!

    I didn’t watch the episode myself. Couldn’t imagine supporting such a trash pile. And I get it, some people go through a rough time and i have been there myself. But only LH has the ability to piss off every judge and still get off light. This bitch should still be in jail.

    IMHO, she was average at best. She did no worse or better than Megan Fox, who’s about on par in terms of acting talent. Either of these so-called “actresses” are really only on SNL for the promotional value; the show really is made or broken by the quality of writing of each show. Also, the musical guest adds to the quality of the show. In this case, I was actually tuning in to see Jack White (a personal fav of mine). The Real Wives of Disney was a very funny skit…the rest was ok – not great.

    soooo many people who go on the show can’t remember lines, clearly look at the que-cards and bad acting is the norm on the show. Seriously does anyone win an acting Emmy for the show? Never, it’s always the writing and such. People it’s a skit variety show where you have like a week to learn stuff. Let’s not take it so seriously.

    I give her props for poking fun at herself for most of the show. They didn’t hold punches on the rehab, drugs, stealing, the lesbian faze. Most people would tell the show not to mention those things but she let the writers have free will on her. Her delivery wasn’t always perfect and the botox was distracting but I’ll clap my hands for her just for being a good sport!!

    The pretaped Disney sketch was hilarious and proved that there is hope for her. Actresses should still be capable of using facial expression so filling her face with Botox was a bad idea.

    This is my first time commenting but I have to say I could have read those cue cards just as horrible as she did! My goodness people….why on earth did you have her on your show? LOSER is the ONLY word for her and I will nver watch another show, movie etc with LL in it. She is disgusting and yes I agree…she should still be in jail where she seems to act the most natural.

    It was ok. Some parts of it were funny, but not because of her.. maybe even in spite of her. Now, Maya Rudolph on the other hand? Possibly one of the best hosts the show has seen in the last 5 years. She was amazing. I miss her on the show. Her range is AMAZING.
