Saturday Night Live 3/8/08 - Amy Adams and Vampire Weekend

Saturday Night Live 3/8/08 - Amy Adam hosting with Vampire Weekend as the musical guest.

They used Andy a lot last week. Was he in any non-Digital Short skits this week?

Yes, this is where we post all the non-Andy SNL skits because we go through them all to verify whether or not Andy was in them.

Weekend Update: Sen. Tim Calhoun

Senator Tim Calhoun is running for President. Will Forte knocks one out of the park (these occasional gems are why they keep him around).

He lost me with the gay marriage bill, but got me back with the cow college and Super Tuesday.

Fierce: The Hot Mess Makeover - New Bravo Show

This is a mildly amusing look at Project Runway. It's a little tranny.

Penelope - Traffic School

Kristen Wiig's Penelope the liar attends traffic school.

Amy Adams does a pretty great Penelope impression. And I didn't get the very end at all. =^0

"In the future, I already took this class, and everybody passed. Congratulations!" - LOL

"I am tool That's my eye in the pyramid." =^)

They need to team Kristen up in more dual characters. I love her single characters, but some of the SNL greats were duals: Blues Brothers, Wild and Crazy Guys, Roxburys, Goth Talk, Wayne's World, Spartan Cheerleaders, Hans and Franz, etc. (I know she does the A-holes with Jason, but that's not enough.)

Hilary Clinton - 3am Phone Call

Hillary fields a late night phone call from President Obama.

Hmmm. The skits have been pro-Hilary lately with last week and this week. But I think they were pro-Obama before that. I wonder if they're going to have pro-Obama skits in the future.

They're also not doing much on the Republican side: the guest appearances from Huckabee and Rudolph were good, but neither are going to run for President in November 08.

This was the opening skit, which lately have been very political (makes sense with the Presidential Race). The opening skits are usually the top news stories and involve impersonations. They are often political, and sometimes they involve guest appearances or impersonations of other people who are currently in the news.

It was on Saturday, actually.

Seriously, though, SNL has to keep re-inventing itself every few years. That's really hard to do. The show almost died when Lorne left, and then they brought him back. He reinvented it with Eddie Murphy and others, leading up to greats like Mike Meyers, Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman, etc. The torch was passed down to Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Chris Rock, David Spade, etc. Then it was stagnant while they brought up Ferrel, Chris Kattan, Molly Shannon, Cheri Oteri, etc. Then there's been a bit of a dry spell until Andy Samberg. He's just as popular as the other stars, but his popularity is different because he does these Digital Shorts and isn't doing recurring characters like the greats before him. So, in all, SNL is still struggling right now. They need a hit performer or two who nails the regular characters. They don't have that. What they have is a bunch of funny actors.
