SNL stunk last week. I don't know whether it was Megan Fox, or the writers but every single sketch fell flat last week. Seriously starting off every episode with a C-SPAN conference is not funny. It seems like the Thursday edition is indeed funnier then the Saturday Night live version. Anyway, yeah looking forward to Curb. It looks to be "PRETTY GOOD"

If it holds true to it's predecessors Star Gate Universe will be a pretty good show.
