You know it’s a tough night on Saturday Night Live when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie puts host Jeremy Renner to comedy shame.

Christie, killing it! Sadly, he really might die in that fleece if he doesn’t take better care of himself. Christie, racking up the good press again — can you imagine the 2013 NJ governor’s race if Cory Booker hops in? The press may implode on itself like a giant star. Also, somewhat related, Booker and Christie once did some bipartisan sketch comedy together:

Crazy NJ Mom Attacks Christie’s Decision to Postpone Halloween
Christie Will Campaign for Rep. Steve King, Has Short Memory

Christie tweeted this backstage pic with SNL doppelganger Bobby Moynihan:

Elsewhere on SNL, the Your Hometown/going home for Thanksgiving pre-recorded sketch was one of the funnier bits of the season. SNL, unlike many sketch shows, works best via truth-in-comedy — this one is too dead-on.

The Californians did it again:

The Paula Broadwell cold open was pin-drop-no-laughter abysmal:
