One cookie just isn't enough.

Boo! These digital shorts aren't good without Andy!!!

Kayne West performs "Heartless"


Overall: NBC didn't post many vids. Was it a stinker of a night? I didn't like the Digital Short. Andy is needed to make those funny!!!

Only one video from Andy, and he was only in two skits (still looking for the lamps skit). Overall, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig made it out with 5 skits each. Bobby Moynihan moves it up a bit with 3 skits. And Jason Sudeikis comes back this episode and rakes in 4 skits. Keep at it, guys!

Even though they made Will Forte the man this week, I think he's the next to go due to a lack of need. Although Will Forte has a few occasionally hilarious moments; the show doesn't depend on him like the others. And the first to go from being popular enough to have a movie career? I think that's Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, and Kristen Wiig (in that order). However, I don't think any of them are going to take off for quite awhile. It's risky, and they're having too much fun.

Andy, we want to see another video for another song on your February album!
