This past weekend, Giants quarterback Eli Manning became the 35th sports figure to host NBC's "Saturday Night Live." Here's a breakdown of Eli's first performance, along with video and sketch-by-sketch performance ratings on a scale of 1-10.
The monologue: 5/10 -- Eli really struggled out of the gate. His first two jokes -- "After two Super Bowls, this is definitely the third most exciting night of my life" and "We had a big parade downtown where we took the Lombardi Trophy into the heart of the city, and now we have no idea where it is" -- were particularly weak.

Eli Manning hosted Saturday Night Live this week.

5 Collegiate Choices to Host SNLThis past Saturday, Eli Manning hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. Eli has always had to live in his older brother Peyton’s shadow, and everyone wondered how the younger Manning would compare in his comedy debut. He didn’t quite live up to Peyton, but he did do an admirable job. He’ll just have to settle for those two Super...
Eli Manning hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and hey–he did a pretty good job. Yeah, he had some of the best writers in television crafting his jokes, but ol’ Eli added a personal touch. Like brother Peyton and Tom Brady before him, SNL extended the offer to host after Eli and the Giants won the Super Bowl. How cool is that? I wanna win the Super Bowl too, but not...

So this mom Patricia Krentcil from New Jersey is accused of taking her five-year-old daughter tanning. Krentcil whose face looks like sandpaper from tanning called her critics "fat," "ugly," and "jealous" last week, was spoofed by the Eli Manning hosted Saturday Night Live this past Saturday.
Can the Dallas Cowboys make the playoffs in 2012? Historically the NFC East has been one of the toughest divisions in the NFL and that tendency should again hold true in the upcoming season. Last season, the New York Giants won the NFC East with a 9-7 record on the last week of the regular season
So what if he and the Giants snatched two Super Bowl rings from our Patriots, we just can't hate the guy for some reason. Eli did a great job last night on SNL. The skit of the night was this...
