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 don't care what anyone says, she was terrible. The prison skit she did was AWFUL! She read que cards the whole time, and still kept messing up her lines. She was supposed to be looking at the other actors while doing the skit, but she kept looking at the off-stage que cards, and even looked into the camera a few times. If that's the "best she can do" then I'd say her career is as good as over.

With few exceptions, it just wasn't a good show all around, and I'm not sure how much of that had to do with Lindsay's limitations. She didn't bomb, but she wasn't great either. Lots of cue card reading and generally disconnected performances.

You enablers are absolutely pathetic. Do you know anything at all about acting? The material, good or bad, has absolutely nothing to do with performance. A good actor delivers their lines on time, with conviction, and owns the screen. All Lohan did was look offscreen, read cue cards, stumbled through the few lines she managed to memorize, and looked completely awkward. In essence, she completely sucked. And THIS is her big comeback?

Despite the opinions of the handful of delusional fans, the vast majority of journalists and observers are slaughtering her performance. For you idiots to believe that their opinions don't matter, you're even more delusional than I give you credit for. In order to have any chance of a comeback, she has to have the majority of people in her favor, because after all, they are the ones who will be buying the movie tickets. Money will never be made by simply counting on the buying power of a handful of lunatic fans. And since she's being widely panned on her performance, exactly who will be willing to hire her for anything? There's no money to be made in hiring someone who has no apparent acting skills, and is also widely disliked for the type of person she's been offscreen.

Why is that so hard for you enablers to understand?

If she did the best she could, then I hope the critics are wrong about her performace, or she doesn't have much of a career left as an actress.

If Lindsay thinks she nailed this then her personal bar is she way too low. Hope she sticks with her counseling after her CS is done. She won't, but she needs too.

I just don't know what to say to the "enablers". This is where you want her? Wow.

It's quite obvious that the enablers know she didn't do a good job, based on their posts. They will never admit it it wasn't good, but to make excuses for her, proves that they know it.

All in all, it was....ok. SNL has hits and misses. A hit, Betty White and Meliisa McCarthy. A miss, Ben Stiller. Just watch next week, and see how badly Jonah Hill does.

I'd love to say she nailed it. I was cheering for her. The writing didn't help her whatsoever. But she stunk. It will make for a high rated return to SNL for her later on. And will also make for a good Howard Stern show tomorrow.

Face it.. people have come to enjoy knocking Lindsay. She is trying and seems sincere finally and given the family she has had to overcome she deserves credit for not being a total loss. Give her a break !!! Its easy to criticize from the bleachers. Walk a mile in her shoes before you pass judgement ! She was working while still a child, its no wonder she was screwed up. I wish her nothing but the absolute best.

Congrats Lohan, you just prooved on live TV how bad you really suck. Stop self-hypeing yourself because you can never back it up. Bet she's missing her concrete carpet.

Lohan knew she sucked so bad she had to speed dial tmz on how she didn't suck. Of course it was all the shows fault.
