Most critics were pretty harsh on the show–but I rather enjoyed it. (Is it just me, or have TV critics become really cranky and wayyy too demanding lately? It’s like a TV show has to be The! Greatest! Thing! Ever! to get a positive review these days. Believe me, I wish everything could be Mad Men/Boardwalk Empire/Dexter awesome. But high-grade Chuck is just fine, too.)

By the way, her Simpsons bit was shot in mid-September, prior to the fuss.) Perry, the musical guest on Saturday Night Live tonight, won’t be the only celebrity gracing this episode; Martha Stewart also pops up, but in cartoon form. “The Fight Before Christmas” airs Dec. 5 on Fox.It looks like Katy Perry will get to sing with a puppet on TV after all.
