I don’t know why, but I actually sat through most of SNL over the weekend. SNL just seems to get worse and worse as the seasons continue. The good cast members always leave and the cupboard is extremely bare. Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler leaving are big losses; especially Maya as there are no black female cast members. I’m also a little bit bitter over Finesse Mitchell getting canned. Kenan Thompson is the only black cast member and he really can only play a handful of roles. Great job, SNL!
Anyway, the funniest part of this week’s episode was the entire Weekend Update sketch. I laughed the entire time! The NY Governor Paterson parody was brilliant. I loved how he kept wandering the set and reappearing in the shot, right in front of the camera. But the best part was “Really?!? with Seth and Amy” covering the Illinois Governor Blagojevich controversy.
And not to be forgotten, the video of President Bush getting shoes thrown at him pretty much makes my life. Have you looked at W’s face while it’s happening? HILARIOUS!
I would bookmark this post if I were you. It’s one of those posts you might want to revisit if you’re having a bad day.
Happy Monday everyone!
