    Biden/Swine flu opening would have been good last Saturday. It's kind of died down. But there should definitely be a joke about it on Weekend Update. BG Talk Show probably won't be a cold opening. Who knows? Maybe Jimmy's too busy.
    don't think so, he lives at 30 rock now adays. And this time he actually has a good reason for actually being there. Speaking of Swine Flu.

    I don't know about that. Conan could only be bothered to appear on SNL during dark weeks at Late Night (which is to say, one time in early '01). Besides, BGTS has run its course.

    They have only done the sketch three times, just saying.

    And it was essentially the same sketch each time.

    Gotta agree with Stu.

    Is anyone else kinda hoping for at least one Drew Peterson reference in tomorrow night's show? For some reason, SNL has really kept mum about that whole mess. Here in Chicago, it's the top story on the news almost every night.

    i am agreeing with stu, but compared to sketchs such as deep house dish and the cougar den, i think the sketch hasnt run its course as much.

    EDIT: Speaking of bad, we havent seen virginiaca in a while. Beg for mercy she wont appear

    NBC has confirmed that Timberlake has backed out of hosting tonight. Instead Tina Fey will be hosting, Praise the lord!

    Thanks for the info, NBC.

    It was cool seeing Leonard Nimoy appearing on "Weekend Update" along with the ones currently playing Kirk and Spock on the new "Star Trek" movie. For some reason, I half expected William Shatner to show up as well but I guess he's still not over not being asked to appear in the picture...

    What was Fallon holding at the end of the show, was it the Peabody Award the show won?

    Great show overall, not much rehashing as i thought there would have been. But we still got stuck with the dancing mascots (3), barry gib and the sequel to d!ck in a box. Am i missing anything?

    good stuff: chris pine, zachery quinto and the legendary awesomely cool leonad "spock" nimoy. the digital short and the pirates sketch, the coming to america sketch the he hit it remark was HILARIOUS!!!!

    meh: the sketches, i think justin is in a rut. sure he has some good characters, but they should introduse new characters for him if he's gonna be back as often as he is.......

    bad: thought ciara sucked big-time. the first performance, what the he|| was she doing rolling around on the floor for???? was not impressed

    I was questioning Ciara's performance as well. I felt as if she was trying to be like Beyonce, but way more sexual.

    I did not like that digital short, thought it was dumb. And my mom didn't like it either.

    Eh, I thought the show was okay. His past hosting appearances were better to me.

    So, for all of you wondering my delemna, we got home from Nostalgia (in Keene, NH High School. Wonderful show. So many talents), and we got home right at 11:30. I watched the first half hour, but I had been up for 20 hours, so I decided, "Even though this is the first time I've done this since watching it, I need some sleep."



    So I just finished the show on my DVR. Pretty good show.

    A review will be late.
