Saturday Night Live: 9/27/08 - Anna Farris & Duffy

Saturday Night Live: 9/27/08 - Anna Farris & Duffy

As usual, we watch all the videos in search of Andy Samberg (and Bobby Moynihan) videos.


Obama and Clinton cut it up:

Open: CBS Evening News - Couric / Palin

Summary: Part 4 of Katie Couric's (Amy Poehler) interview with Sarah Palin (Tina Fey) leaves the anchorman flustered by the governor's folksy responses.

Gov. Palin and Katie Couric get real and adorable...

Recurring Characters: Katie Couric, Sarah Palin.

Great to see Tina Fey back in! I want to see her more with McCain though.


Anna Faris' Monologue

Summary: Anna Faris lets the audience in on a secret: she really is a dumb blonde.


Making New Friends

Presidential Debate

Rowboat Date

Weekend Update with Amy Poehler & Seth Meyers

Update: Bill Clinton

Summary: Former President Bill Clinton (Darrell Hammond) can't quite bring himself to endorse Barack Obama.

Darrell's Bill Clinton is still hilarious. Hahaha.

Update: Judy Grimes

Travel writer Judy Grimes (Kristen Wiig) still counters her nervousness by constantly kidding around.

How is this possibly a news or politics video? =^)

Yes, Kristen Wiig has some intense talent.


Summary: A trio of strippers (Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig, Casey Wilson) are opposed to closing off the Champagne Room simply because the Wall Street bailout crisis will prevent their regular clients from being able to afford their services.

Deep House Dish

Recurring Characters: DJ Dynasty Handbag, T'Shane.

Googie Rene's Slightly Stained Wedding Dress Basement

Note: This sketch was cut from the dress rehearsal for the episode hosted by Michael Phelps.

Duffy performs "Standing Stone"

My Ex-Boyfriend

Summary: Josh (Bill Hader) is proud to show off his new girlfriend, Sarah (Anna Faris), to his friends (Jason Sudeikis, Casey Wilson), except that she won't stop talking glowingly about her ex-boyfriend.


Wow, just as Lauren said, Andy Samberg was only in one skit this week (or only noticable in one). What a let down.

Sometimes, they plan on airing a Digital Short featuring Andy Samberg, and so they don't want to load too many skits on Andy. Then the short ends up getting cut from dress because the audience didn't laugh hard enough. This has happened in the past with a few digital shorts, including Nurse Nancy (got pot-poned three times before they aired it) and a sketch where Andy is a cop with lobster claws (never got shown on TV).

So perhaps that happened here. It seems like that might be the case seeing how there's so little of Andy in this episode and there is no digital short.

Lots of Kenan though. Grrr.

And next week is Anne Hathaway. Good, a fourth new one in a row. Come on, SNL! We need some more Andy shorts now!!! Space Olympics isn't enough!!!
