NBC’s Saturday Night Live is back after two weeks with Iggy Azalea as Musical Guest and Jim Carrey as Host. Although he missed the cold intro, Q.V. Hough (@quinnhough) will be live-blogging the action!

10:36 CST Red-horned Elvis! Yes. This should be good.

10:37 CST Uh-oh, “Helvis?” The Halloween episode will either be brilliant or devastatingly brutal.

10:38 CST Carrey channeling Andy Kaufman right now and I’m loving it.

10:40 CST College students be like, “HUH?!”

10:41 CST Oh, hell yes. “Matthew McConaughey for Lincoln.” Carrey’s facial expression is better than the actual impression.

10: 45 CST “Carrey Family Reunion” – not sure about the female comedian opening this skit. Same schtick. Ok, here’s Taran Killam with an outstanding impression. Great voice!

10:48 CST Ok, so now it’s just a bad party featuring Jim Carrey jokes.

10:49 CST Brutal “Cable Guy” impression from Jay Pharaoh. He sounded like…well, it wasn’t good.

10:40 CST Will it be throwback comedy hour or will Jim Carry produce some fresh laughs?

10:51 CST More McConaughey skits? Ehh…not feeling it. Everybody does a McConaughey impression and Carrey’s is just so-so.

10:52 CST Chris Rock and Prince next week?! Aww shit. Yes. That’s what I’m talking about.

10:56 CST Hey, it’s Pete Davidson, the apparent heir to the SNL Throne. He’s had a few moments this season, but nothing special.

10:57 CST So, is this “Paul and Phil” skit a bit similar to “The DeMarco Brothers” skit featuring Jimmy Fallon and Chris Parnell?

11:00 CST 30 minutes and three short McConaughey skits. C’mon SNL, writers. .

11:00 CST So, Izzy Agalea sings that song? Still not sure what she does.

11:03 CST I hate to be “that guy”about SNL lip-sync performances, but isn’t this an obvious recording of a live vocal?

11:05 CST Well, she had her chance.

11:05 CST Rita Ora with some fresh vocals?

11:06 CST Lip synching. Same ol’ strange pop dancers. How about some rock?

11:09 CST Allison Williams from HBO’s Girls on an NBC Peter Pan special? I wonder how that happened?! (snicker)

11:10 CST Weekend Update: Yeah, New York City has ALL the diseases. Must have been written by a Brooklyn hipster.

11:11 CST Oh, you crazy, SNL! Black people, Halloween and Ebola jokes? Well done! :/

11:12 CST Ah, a comedy bit on Selfie and A to Z. I’m totally not going to take a piss right now.

11:13 CST Why isn’t Jim Carrey taking over Weekend Update?

11:16 CST Brett Favre man-to-man penis joke because he often did that?

11:16 CST A “Yer Momma” joke — the writing keeps getting better.

11:18 CST Well, the show is halfway over and I’m not feeling this, despite being a life-long follower of Saturday Night Live since the late 80s. Maybe next week, SNL? Yikes.

11:20 CST Adios!
