    I think having Wiig co-anchor WU can have its' upsides. Her sketch appearances have been kind of overkill last season, anchoring WU might make her appear in sketches only when needed (no more Gilly!) Also, it would be a good way to give Abby and the two new ladies more screen time.
    To me, it sounds like Jimmy Fallon nine years ago, except the genders are reversed. Wiigy's already in every sketch, so why toss Update into the mix?
    At least we won't have to see Amy's Aunt Linda anymore.

    I feel the same way.

    I like Jason Sudeikis, but no.

    Jason needs to work on his impressions, every impression he does on the show he is screaming.

    And that one with him as the director for the commercials where he constantly bothers the celebrity who is filming the ad.

    The dude does do a lot of loud characters, but that's sort of his style.

    Suds was a bit more subdued when I saw him at Second City Vegas back in '01... then again, he had five o'clock shadow and rings under his eyes.

    It's all about the Nielsens, baby. A lack of big-name acts with new albums this fall will do that to you. I'll bet a can of Coke that the first song Bono et al. plays is "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight."

    1st song will be maybe "I'll Go Crazy..." 2nd song- probably "Magnificent", they will likely get a third song- either "With or Without You", "Even Better Than the Real Thing", or "Pride", maybe a 4th song during closing credits- "Where The Streets Have No Name" or "Desire"

    Well, that whole negotiations thing that was a week ago on that local news station, and, I guess maybe they would have not announced it yet, but they should be announcing it soon on what this cast is looking like. So, no source, really, other than that whole local news thing two weeks ago

    Apparently so. Maybe he'll be pre-recording his voiceovers rather than doing it live. Either that, or they found an excellent soundalike.

    That was a sound-a-like. It had to be.
