Critic reviews for Kit Harrington; Sara Bareilles

Kit Harington arrived at "Saturday Night Live" in his first guest host gig to tell the world and maybe himself that there's more to Kit Harington than Jon Snow. Meanwhile, "SNL" reminded everyone...just how futile that effort might ultimately be.

Harington did not prove himself a natural at sketch comedy, but he was a great sport throughout the proceedings.

It was almost distracting, but then Kit Harington made you forget about it by doing some goofy characters...The result was a decent episode with a smattering of great sketches

Sudeikis is phenomenal here, as a "character" who learns nothing from an aide who tries to teach him not to be so grabby.
