I thought you couldn't do that on television.

Most of SNL is terrible these days, but even though I know, objectively, Kennan Thompson isn't great at sketch comedy, I've got to admit, just looking at the guy makes me laugh for some reason.  And this is one of my favorite bits of the last 10 years:

buntz: I said it before, his only schtick is acting like he's so surprised he's playing this character on SNL.

"Oh my God, how ridiculous!  I'm a game show host"
"Will you look at this?!?  I'm supposed to be a judge now!"
"Heaven's to Betsy!!!  Now I'm a guy in an office!"

He keeps that little smug grin on his face like he's SO above what he's doing without actually breaking character like Jimmy Fallon did.

Can't stand the guy

I don't hate him, but he's gotten a lot of mileage out of making almost every character sound a lot like his bad impression of Eddie Murphy's good impression of Bill Cosby. His Reba Mcintire is spot-on, though.

Thanks for the carbon footprint guy, so glad you didn't have to give up anything, hope it's not too stressful  on you to juggle it all.

Or a sketch calls for a game show host.

Damn, this guy's been around so long he calls Lorn Michaels "n00b".
