    Who’s funny on SNL then? Because I’m having so much difficulty thinking of another person– and don’t say Kristen Whig because, though I like her also, all her characters are pretty much the same. And not Samberg. He’s just backed by his Lonely Island buddies.

    Who’s funny on SNL. With the exception of Kristen Wiig. Nobody. Did you see last week’s episode. I felt really bad for host Rosario Dawson.

  • Josh Emerson

    I think SNL can be funny. The episode with Neil Patrick Harris was fantastic. Kristen Wiig is very funny, and I think Bill Hader is good too. They’d really improve the show if they dumped Armisen, Will Forte, and Kenan Thompson. Those three are just terrible.

  • Josh,

    Sure, SNL can be funny. But only when a host as dynamic as NPH is their to raise everyone’s game around him. Did you see the following week’s Rosario Dawson hosted installment. It was painful to watch.

  • Tim

    Dude, are you serious? Fred Armisen is great.

  • Ace

    Fred can be really funny. Did you guys see when he made fun of the CNN election map? Hysterical. “Watch, I can make Michigan bounce!” But I’ll be honest that I usually just watch Weekend Update and fast forward through the rest.
