Is it all the same people this season? No new hirings or firings?

OMG loved the Fox News GOP Debate skit. Michele Bachmann says when she asked Marcus out he replied, "Miss thang here's a quarter, go buy yourself a clue!" LMAO

It appears Nasim Pedrad is a full-fledged cast member rather than simply being a featured player.
[EDIT: It also looks like Vanessa Bayer lost about 15 lbs.]

I enjoyed the GOP debate intro. The show was solid up until about the horrid gay sex game show that was WAYYYY out in left field and unfunny, in my opinion. However, the Tony Bennett was hilarious! Alec Baldwin is always solid. Also, the deleted Top Gun screen tests were freaking hilarious. I wouldn't mind an entire episode of those. Can't wait for Melissa McCarthy next week! She will be great!

Also, Radiohead is really mediocre tonight. And I love Radiohead. But Thom Yorke looks like he's on drugs. Yikes.

Best opening show in years and years.

Alec Baldwin is just awesome, especially on SNL. The opening debate skit was pure comedy gold.

Yea anytime you get a natalie from facts of life & bobcat golthtwait impression how can it go wrong.
The star wars auditions skit they had once done is actually on the new star wars bluray set in the spoofs feature.
If you never saw it youtube it its great....lemon does chewy, matthau does kenobi, streisand does leia, dreyfuss does c3po....classic stuff.

Shouldnt it have been an anniversaty bluray of top gun instead of a dvd though ??

A guy in a rock bang on drugs.

Would be a shock if you said he looked like he wasnt on drugs.

Head over to Hulu to view the Top Gun outtakes that didn't make the show. Some hilarious stuff in there too.

I literally fell off my couch laughing at that bit. The debate was hysterical, too.

But one question persists: Alec Baldwin or Steve Martin - Who's on Top?

The one who's hosted SNL the most is on top. They alternate when tied.

As a fan of them in the past, I completely agree. Ever since around Kid A they've become nothing more than a bunch of noise.

It was a strong show for the start of the season. Looks like they intend to clear a path for the "Party", as they see fit, as well.

Not sure what that means.

Of course not. Just keep walking.

When's that Maxine Waters skit going to hit?...I'm not holding my breath on that one!

If it's a political thing, SNL did the same type of skits mocking the democratic debates years ago. This week's was tame. Hopefully they get "worse".

seth myers is really doing an outstanding job on weekend update. I assume
he writes most of his material, if so, he is truly a gifted comedy writer.

He's the headwriter at SNL, and the speech he wrote for the last correspondents dinner was brilliant.

You know what they say, be careful what you hope for.

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
