  • Parody of the third Presidential debate.

    Another weak effort put into this SNL Thursday Weekend Update episode. The debate sketch had its funny moments, but we didn't need 2000 jokes about Joe the Plumber. We didn't need him to be 3 1/2 inches tall or an imaginary friend named Simon either.

    The Weekend Update scene was equally as disappointing. Amy Poehler just isn't funny and I cannot wait until she departs and somebody else takes her spot at the desk. Kristen Wiig is not anybody and all of her characters are exactly the same. I understand SNL is low on females, but just get anybody else and kick her to the curb.

    No Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson or Andy Samberg? No Tina Fey to portray Sarah Palin, the one thing this season people have been talking about? I understand they have a show on Saturday, but come on SNL you're better than this.
