We were a bit wary about “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively‘s comedic turn for “SNL’s” Dec. 5 airing after January Jones’ disappointing episode.

However the first promo got us interested. I mean, come on, it was cute, Lively and Andy Samberg gasping at a real-life pair of magic pants.

Then, unfortunately, we were given a taste of what too often passes for humor on “SNL”: a grown man joking about his virginity to a beautiful woman, but in the hammiest, Jim Carrey-est way possible.

Watch the promos for yourself:

Will you watch Saturday? Or are you content with Lively visiting your home as Serena?
