Yeah, as much as I may miss any of the folks that leave, I think it'll ultimately be good to shake up the cast a bit. Six of the current cast members (including Seth Meyers) have been around for 5-10 years already.

i wonder if the other lonely island guys will continue to write for the show if samberg leaves?

Most seasons:

Hammond: 14
Franken: 11
Meyers: 11
Meadows: 10
Armisen: 10

Meyers is on year 11.

Good catch. Actually, I should've just said "6-11," since none of them (Meyers, Armisen, Thompson, Sudeikis, Samberg, Wiig) debuted later than fall 2005.

Cuba Pudding, Jr. (jaymc), Wednesday, 4 April 2012 22:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

Sudeikis has been kind of the glue of the show for a while imo, i may actually miss him

I will definitely miss him in What Up With That.

by many many miles the best thing about those scared straight sketches

balls, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 22:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

Comparing Sudeikis to Piscopo is f'in weird.

Horrible Bosses made 200 mil ww. I don't think Joe Piscopo's combined filmography made that much money.

Okay, maybe Dana Carvey, then. And yes, I know there were extenuating circumstances for his career's nosedive, but still.

Again, I feel the need to point out that I like Sudeikis a lot and wish him the best, but if he's quitting SNL to pursue a film career, I'm not sure that he fully recognizes his own strengths/weaknesses. I think he'd do really well in an ensemble sitcom cast, though.

Yeah, they need to stop doing 'What Up With That?' full stop if he isn't around to contribute.

1 of paper = 4 of coin (Deric W. Haircare), Wednesday, 4 April 2012 23:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

he's norm peterson's nephew iirc.

And Olivia Wilde is Alexander Cockburn's niece!!!

taccone already left a couple years ago and i kinda wonder if schaffer even does much besides the digital shorts. samberg has been seemingly doing more live sketches lately but half of them are practically overtly making fun of how shitty samberg's impressions are.

damn I was really hoping Sudeikis would get a full movie for his 'What Up With That?' character

I DIED, Thursday, 5 April 2012 01:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

it could happen, clearly Kenan is sticking around until he gets his Ladies Man moment

oh I don't want anyone else in the sketch in the movie

Anyone else get the impression Drunk Uncle went on a little bit longer than scripted this time? Moynihan was in the zone.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

For the second time, when Drunk Uncle started I thought I'd hate it, but both times he killed it. "Is this wi-fi organic?" Was that the line? Something like that.

And Almost Pizza was SNL at it's best.

dan selzer, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Laughed out loud at almost pizza and drunk uncle. I'm such a hypocrite.

pplains, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

Lotta consensus here. Weekend Update winds up being a high point of the show more often than not these days, thanks largely to Hader and Moynihan. Another sure-fire high point being whatever Killam's doing in a given week. His star is on the rise, for sure.

Looks like the Zooey Deschanel Show is the new sketch they're going to suck all of the laughs and charm from through endless reiteration. This one was fine, but Lorne's predictable writing is on the wall.

Kristen Wiig does a really good Drew Barrymore impression, but ruins it by not even resembling her in the slightest. Armisen looks more like Barack Obama than she does Drew Barrymore.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 9 April 2012 19:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

Didn't love new girl in the Bravo skit but thought she was great as Penelope Cruz trying to read the complicated words.

dan selzer, Monday, 9 April 2012 19:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

drunk uncle was the most i'd laughed at SNL in a loooong time

how many of them have run? i'd like to see him again

Mississippi Butt Hurt (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 9 April 2012 19:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think he's done it 3 or 4 other times.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 9 April 2012 19:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

That Penelope Cruz skit was so wrong but I laughed so fucking hard at it

"Penelope, I'll help you; RE-FRIG-ER-A-TORRR!"

Jay Pharaoh should be doing shit like the school principal all the damn time and Will Smith and Jay-Z impressions very little of the time. Let the man breathe!

Moynihan's dancing during the Empire State of Mind sketch was great. Gotye seems like a chill bro. Loved the open with all the GOP hopefuls at the bar. Laser Cats 7. Josh Brolin was pretty great each time he was on screen, especially in the aforementioned high school dance sketch.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 15 April 2012 05:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

Californians was pretty amazing.

Seconding Jay Pharaoh expanding out. I will say that I thought his impressions tonight were more comedically heightened. Like he added little tics so it was less straight forward. I hope he doesn't get the boot.

didn't see last night, but agree that jay pharoah has got uncanny talent and i hope he/they can find space for it

I fell asleep after the second Gotye performance (btw that dude owns) but that stupid Empire State of Nind skit had no business being as funny as it was

Also loved The Californians and the slow hallway. Actually I really enjoyed most of what I saw.

You'll need to watch the final high school dance sketch on hulu or something. Even better than the last time they did it.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 15 April 2012 15:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

Loved this sketch and how Taran Killem was able to make the same stupid face that Kit Harrington makes.

Yeah, "Somebody That I Used to Know" is a damn good song

the californians bit just had me thinking: really, new yorkers making fun of people for ALWAYS talking about directions, that's not right.

I just watched Almost Pizza and then the very next video I watched had an ad for DiGiorno before it

Kate McKinnon's only on her 3rd episode and I think I love her already, "What Is This?" and "Helga Lately" are great

That wasn't her on What Is This, was it?

o wait no she was the guest. was it her?

mizzell, Sunday, 6 May 2012 04:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

Uh, no. No, it wasn't.

And, yeah, she seems like she's gonna be pretty good for the show. She might make for a decent Wiig replacement. Lorne's probably gonna start trawling failed sketch shows for more performers like her and Killam.
