Umm, Asian like ching-chang-chong Chinatown.  Me so sorry Asian.  Fa-ra-ra-ra-ra Asain.  Not Asian like Barack Obama is black.  You are clearly the REAL racist.

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

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.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: In before "SNL isn't funny," "SNL was never funny," and "SNL was funny only up to n years ago."

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

skinink: Get rid of Lorne Michaels so that SNL can move on. The show needs a new producer to make the show relevant. They could have offered a contract to Aisha Tyler to show they know what's current in comedy. But I guess as long as NBC makes money, they couldn't care less how diverse the cast is.

I don't know if you were around the first time Lorne Michaels left and they got a new producer, but that era is now known as the "lost years" because Jean Doumanian gave us one of the WORST seasons of SNL ever created. Dick Ebersol also produced it (after Doumanian) and it was better, but it still kinda stank most of the time. The late 1970s and early 1980s were a bad time for SNL, and it was because Michaels wasn't there. If Ebersol didn't have Eddie Murphy for a short time, the show would have been canceled. When Michaels returned in 1985, the show returned to its former glory-- He fired everyone and hired guys like Dana Carvey and Phil Hartman.

Do you REALLY want a return to the Denny Dillon, Charles Rocket, Anthony Michael-Hall years?!?! Yeesh.

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.

How to make Saturday Night live better:

1: The writer who is judged to have written the worst script of the night shall be dumped into New Yorks shiat sewer and left for dead.

K: Spend a assload of cash and do what they did in the 80's and hire A-listers who give the writers purpose in their life, so they write good episodes.

148732: Ditch the dung-artists who pretend to play/sing something called music.

$#%@#$^%: Quit writing 2 minutes of material and stretching it out for 10 minutes.

OhFARKING YEA!!!: Have the regulars slice the hosts with Samurai swords to make them pretty.
Or is this a pic of early Lasik surgery? People love mass carnage at midnight.

I thought a friend of mine would have been good.

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