Brandon says he's neglecting to do his normal "Saturday Night Live" recap today because, quote, "That was the worst episode I've ever seen." So this will have to do in its place.
Justin Bieber hosted an off-off-off night of SNL yesterday that you could chalk up to the Bieb's recent bout with food poisoning, uninspired writing, and what sounded like six female fans who screamed during EVERY SKETCH.
