Weekend Update

November 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Kimmer has been an UBER fan of SNL since I was old enough to stay up and watch. The 1975 cast of course will remain the best and Gilda Radner was always my favorite Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time-Player. Her unique characters and sense of timing always had me rolling on the floor. Remember Jenny Miller? Lisa Lubner? Roseann Roseanna Danna? Followed closely by John Belushi, Chevy Chase and Dan Akroyd.

The Weekend Update will always be a classic comedy sketch and remains just as funny today albeit a bit too politically correct. After all who could ever top “Jane you ignorant slut” ? They just don’t do that anymore on TV.

SNL has been on TV now for 35 years. So hard to believe, right? I think my newest favorite cast member would have to be Kristen Wiig. She does some great imitations, as well as her character Penelope and The Assholes.

SNL has made some common names even more appreciated. I know I learned to love Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin and Justin Timberlake from their continuous skits on SNL. But I think the best part used to be that SNL gave up-n-coming newbie musical acts a once in a lifetime shot on national TV.

I remember the first time I saw Cindi Lauper as the musical guest, as a die-hard, heavy metal, head-banger, I would have bet cold hard cash that her rendition of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, was a comic skit. Lo and behold she became the darling of MTV with her outlandish appearance (and true talent under all that glitter).

Last night, Taylor Swift was the host and musical guest. I know she’s the new cool thing for tweens, but the girl cannot sing! She is tone deaf! Am I the only one whose ears bleed when she attempts to sing outloud? For the love of Pete! Please stop boosting this girl’s ego! REALLY?!

I hope SNL goes back to giving newbies a shot. It’s more interesting and usually the talent is real and justified. Also, while we’re at it, can they just go ahead and bring back the Bass-o-Matic, too?
