Cast already teased “Jersey Shore Harry Potter” in cold open here which wasn’t very funny, either. Nothing like starting 2012 on a lame note:

The Snape bit was the only good part.
I liked Rachel Dratch as Harry Potter better.
The show is now just a bunch idiots doing nothing funny for 1 1/2 hours.
Hey! SNL did something that wasn’t funny. That deserves a headline?!
Radcliffe gave the whole show his all but was hamstrung by the writers over and over again. To think those sketches were the ones that made the cut, makes you wonder how bad the rest must have been. A real wasted opportunity to get a younger audience interested in the show.
Why are SNL sketches continuously posted here? The show is simply unfunny, the cast is bordering on one of the worst of SNL’s history, and this sketch in particular is unfunny.
It’s like something SNL does immediately has relevance…but to whom? Why does anyone care anymore?
I thought he gave it his all. Not great material last night. Favorite was when he played Casey Anthony’s adopted dog. The singer was out of her element…not sure if it she can’t sing, has no stage presence, or it was just nerves. But ouch.
I felt bad for Daniel Radcliffe. He did great given the material he was given. It’s really sad how SNL has been slowly dying for years now.
That was quite bad.
I would have laughed my @ss off if the skit was a musical danceoff between Harry and Valdemort, which Harry would win hands down because Valdemort sounds all nasal-y without a nose.
Then Valdemort would torture and kill him, because, you know, he’s evil and a sore loser.
That’s how Michael O’Donoghue would have written it in 1975.
All right, well let’s be fair: the “Jersey Shore Hogwarts” wasn’t a real sketch, it was mentioned in the monologue as an example of a stupid-sounding sketch.
Some funny moments last night, especially Radcliffe as Casey Anthony’s dog. Don’t understand why they keep doing the Target sketch, but that was the only one that really annoyed me.
Harry Potter and the Actors that Stare at the Cue Cards.
There was a better sketch in there. Hader’s Snape could have been used to better illustrate the Potter character had become a sad, average person.
