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 ...

I am not a big fan of SNL. Lindsay made the show enjoyable to stomach. Perfect? No. I am truly glad to see her get her life in order. I hope she continues on a clean path. How about giving her a chance. I look forward to following her career.

NBC did everything possible to promote this show. She got a soft ball interview from Lauer, an appearance with Fallon and tons of promo.

She didn't deliver the goods. Even when she wasn't speaking she seemed awkward and out of character. Charmless. It's show biz not high school. It's her enablers pushing her out before she's recovered and without training.

She needs real support, acting classes and to do some real work on her kills.

The stupid bitch couldn't even read the cue cards.

Pretty sad.

Unfortunately we'll be reading a lot about her again on TMZ when she goes on a drinking binge/"shopping spree".

She didn't do that bad. Geez, Betty White had trouble reading the cue cards, too, and everybody just loved her.

SNL didn't give Lohan enough lines or near enough funny lines. She was basically an "extra" in nearly all the skits. There's no way she could have "shined" with the cir***stances and poor material she had to work with.

the real diva    

so glad i did not watch it. i was watching lockup instead. seeing what kind of enviroment Lindsay ill be living in in the future. Lindsay your career is totally gone. but i know with the way you are .you will go back to your own ways. i look forward to seeing you on a episode of lockup. as a new resident of the prison. it will be your number one appearance, i'm sure when you do move into a prison and you appear on lockup. that will be the most watched episode and the most watched appearance everyone will ever see that you have done...i look forward to seeing you in a episode of lockup soon.

CC - THE ORIGINAL    

OK...maybe she was trying to channel Liz Taylor, since on here they had said she was basically "living" Liz to prep for her pic.
This is just a blip on the monitor for me...SNL hasn't been hysterical in ages,IMO.
I think the REAL "redemption" OR failure will be her behavior during the filming of the Liz Taylor bio pic. STILL in shock she actually got it, but guess maybe we'll see if the old Lohan comes back out and shows her true colors.
People have mentioned Robert Downey Jr...don't forget, the judge in HIS cases didn't give him the chances Lohan got...he went to jail, spent some real time...not this BS 10 days or 8 hours, or whatever she served. Downey worked long and hard to get back up...and made SERIOUS efforts to get back his acting career....AND the work he put in VOLUNTARILY towards keeping his sobriety was evident.
Don't see her doing that...still don't hear the sincerity in her voice...OR the humility for that matter. It all seems rehearsed or reading from cue cards like her performance on SNL. She STILL hasn't got it yet.
My opinion...hope she proves me wrong.
