    The average since 2008 has been just shy of 4.5 women in the cast. So I think we can safely state that SNL has been a four-woman show for the past fifteen years, transitioning to becoming a five-women show over the past five and will be a five-woman show going forward.



    Except he was mostly just trying to replace Amy and Maya, was unhappy with the results, andthen started to throw as many as possible on the show to duke it out for the empty repretory spots.For a while it was a one woman show starring Kristen. Since 2008, Lorne's been playing catch up and now that Kristin's gone he seems to still be doing that. Before he always used to carefully add a replacement right before the departing cast member left. Iwouldn'texpect there to be enough room for K-Mac, Aidy, and Cecily. The show has a lot of moments where there just isn't enough room for cast members and they get lost amidst the others. For example, I would argue that Casey was great her first year but when Abby and Michaela were added the next year, she disappeared.

    I heard back from John Mulaney's sister (we're former classmates). Apparently, John moved to LA in August to focus on his stand-up. He will continue to contribute to SNL on occasion, much like Jorma and Akiva.

    Oh yeah. Those digital shorts were so good. The tennis ball one, the hobo spin the bottle, and Boogerman.

    Well, two outta three.

    If we're talking Year 37, "100th Celebration" and "Lazy Sunday 2" were the only shorts created by the entire Lonely Island. Most of last year's filmed pieces were written and directed by committee with Andy.

    See, I knew that "Facebook host/MG suggestions" thing was just a very sophisticated bit of satire on Lorne's part. "See what happens when you let every loser schmuck have a say? You end up with Howdy Doody as president and Paris Hilton as permanent SNL host."


    I can predict one thing from this fiasco: Darren Criss will never host or be an MG on SNL.


    What a bunch of chumps.

    I read about it online. I missed most of the show. But I saw the parents bit.


    I also finally saw that Gangam Style thing from the Seth MacFarlane episode. The skit seemed to leave me less confused than the video. And I thought American pop was sometimes weird. Lady Gaga will never do anything to make me go, "What did I just watch?" like that did.

    There is a poll in US Weekly, about who does the better Obama impression: Jay or Fred. Fred won. By 2/3rds of the vote.

    Fired or not, it was for the best.
