I quit watching SNL when it turned into "The Kristen Wiig Show." I'm slowly coming back to it, though I wish Bill Hader was still there.

elgripe: I'm one of those pepple who spent decades sniffing at "Saturday Night Dead" and how awful and unfunny it was.

Current cast totally makes me eat those words. Last season and especially this season (after they got rid of some dead weight from last season) is the best cast the show has ever had. Brilliant and hilarious. Can't say enough good things about the current cast. Great great stuff.


I agree, there has been a lot of good stuff this season. My wife and I usually Tivo it and run through it on Sunday morning. Here's a few of my favorite bits from this past season:

This is probably my favorite bit of last season.

And this is another spot-on parody.

I also liked this one.

And this one.

And of course this.

Nasim is great in this one, too.

Weatherkiss: Ben Stein for instance, very much a conservative, and very much successful but he tends to keep his comedy and politics completely separate from one another. He's someone I'd consider a moderate.


Ben panders to whomever he is addressing at the moment. I worked at an event in Dubya's "home town" where Ben was the speaker, and he spewed the biggest pile of ultra-conservative BS I'd ever heard. The audience ate it up.

In no way did he appear anywhere near "moderate" that day.

But now if you say it isn't funny, you're a racist!

Maybe that's why they don't hire more Asians.


Do not badmouth Nasim Pedrad. She is lovely.

tcan: As long as they still restrict it to liberals only then this diversity thing is OK


It's a comedy show. Conservatives are rarely funny.

Are they gonna make her play only criminals and pimps like they do with the other black actors?

SNL is as it always was, occasionally funny, occasionally not, usually in equal measure.

She looks like a young Ellen Cleghorne. Why not just hire her back?

Also: Maya Rudolph is black?!

I thought a friend of mine would have been good.

I think she's hilarious, but I don't know anything about being funny.

I still don't think we'll get a skit which depicts Michelle Obama, Rihanna, Beyonce, Kerry Washington and Oprah in a restaurant together.
