AVClub: Doing double duty for the second time, Drake, much like last time, proved an eager, agreeable host. If he’s no Timberlake in the host-musical guest pantheon, he clearly worked his ass off, appearing in every sketch but the cold open and doing two songs off of Views (he even popped up on Update). But sometimes performing effort is an enemy on SNL, and, as personable and game as Drake was, his wire-to-wire feat was more pleasant than electrifying. His inevitable musical monologue (humorously objecting to his constant meme-ification) was flat and off-key, and he relied too obviously on the cue cards. Still, not a bad outing—just a workmanlike one.
