Lindsay Lohan

I DIDN'T BOMB

on 'Saturday Night Live'

Love it or hate it, there's at least one person who thinks Lindsay Lohan did a great job on "Saturday Night Live" last night ... and that's Lindsay herself.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she understands it wasn't a perfect show, but she feels proud of the episode. We're told there were several last minute changes -- including ditching her singing monologue in favor of one with cameos from Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm (see below).

Our sources say Lindsay was excited to be back working and really missed being a part of the action. 

According to our sources, Lindsay understands people are going to bash her performance regardless ... but she feels she did the best she could do.

So we gotta ask ...

Really unfair to judge her on this one gig. The material sucked and all the performers on this show rely on cue cards -- and they're used to doing so. LH just stepped in and doesn't do this every week, plus they pulled their usual last-minute changes. That said, it's gonna take a village to save this woman. She just doesn't have the right stuff, and her "support group" (mother, father, hangers-on, "get high buddies") will just bring her down. We seem to forget how messed up Drew Barrymore was -- and R Downey and S Penn are now regarded as acting gods after their years of drugging/drinking!!

It really doesn't matter what lindsay thinks or her friends and family, because it all has to do with social media and after reading all the comments not only on tmz but facebook and twitter and other critics who are not afraid to give there opinion all say with very few exceptions that lindsay was not prepared and she was not in the forefront, but played more of a backgroung roll and did a horrible job. Theese are what hollywood producers and directors and tv producers and directors look at with that lindsay is in her own private bubble. I bet playboy is sorry not that she did the spread but they grossly over paid her. The issue was on the stand for two months and lindsay did not do the one promotion she was contracted to do. I bet lorrene Michaels is sorry he let lindsay get him on the casting couch to do the show.

Oh My    

Lotta nerves going there. Expected. But one thing Lindsey, please stop smoking. You have the voice of a 40 year old truck stop waitress. Really, Kick that habit so you can sing again and not sound like a frog.

Of all people, I never thought Lindsay Lohan would have trouble doing lines. That was a truly awful hosting effort. I made it as far as Weekend Update and had to turn it off. Maybe there were last minute changes (one wonders why? perhaps because Lohan was failing in rehearsal?) but that happens to all the hosts. She is the one who failed in comparison. She didn't deserve the gig in the first place and when given it, she screwed it up.

She looked great. Healthy and Together. The writing STUNK. No one could have made that funny. But she did do a good job. No matter what people are going to trash her. They would be happier if she just OD'd then they could then elevate her to sainthood...

Lorne Michaels needs to hire some Comedy writers. The sketches were really lame and Lindsay did the best she could with what she had to work with. SNL is getting to be just a show with people yelling their lines at each other and there must have been 45 minutes of commercials. You did good Lindsay.

100% Lohan is to blame for sucking. You have to remember she begged to host the show so it was on her if she wasn't ready. It's not a coincidence that other hosts are consistently funny, you have to cater to the host and she's very limited. A lot of jokes COULD have worked but she stumbled through them and then rushed the punchlines with typical poor timing. If she could act and it didn't work she would have gotten a pass

Well you know that wasn't going to take long at all for Lohan to speed dial tmz and patting herself on the back. I didn't suck it was the shows fault. I just won my $5.00 bet.


Holy Christ, she bombed right from the beginning and didn't get any better. The flashing applause signs didn't even help. Of course its the shows fault. So much for her personal invite to all her famous friends. Fallon and Hamm were already in the building and didn't do it for Lohan.

All of Lohans boasting and bragging self hype Lohan as always couldn't back it up. Jeeze, even with rehearsals she couldn't even fake reading cue cards and teleprompters and no the cameras didn't move. She just sucked. That simple.

Ware a bra and get rid of those stupid wigs. They should have just re-runned Lenos skit of her stealing jewelry off of Holly.

She definetly didn't "nail it", but she didn't bomb either. Reading off teleprompters seems kind of amateur. Also, did anyone notice how much better she looked in the wigs they had her wear vs. her own hair? Time to get rid of the Dina Lohan hair Lilo!

If they would have just proped her up in the corner with NO LINES, then people would have no reason to complain..
Her Voice alone scares little kids..
And looking like she has been bobbing for french fries doesnt help.
acting is not her strong suit..being a tabloid fodder is...
keep breaking the law and being a beach and you wont be forgotten

I am not a big fan of SNL. Lindsay made the show enjoyable to watch. I hope she will continue to get her life in order. I also hope everyone at TMZ will give her a chance. I look forward to watching her have a successful future.
