It’s almost too easy to declare that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “rocked” as host of this week’s Saturday Night Live — but that doesn’t mean such a statement would be inaccurate.

In fact, it says a lot about the Furious 7 star’s comedic chops that the evening’s worst sketches either gave him absolutely nothing to do (“Cooking With Paul”) or didn’t include him at all (“The Circus”).
Johnson proved so fearlessly committed to his punch lines that he even scored a few laughs during a throwaway musical monologue about his status as “box-office Viagra” and a cold open that found him bringing to life a new (and amusingly enraged) side of Jay Pharoah’s accurate but ultimately tepid Barack Obama impression.
