Mick Jagger was very good. No surprise, he’s a performer. Not just a musician. Note: actor does not always equal performer these days. However, none of the sketches stood out as good or bad.
The clip of the show is, no surprise, Stefon.
I might lose your respect, but I didn’t know it was Kirsten Wiig’s last show. The good-bye segment was very sad. I’m not surprised, she’s a big deal now, even if I didn’t think Bridesmaids was very funny. I’m not sure how they replace her, she seemed to be able to do anything.
It’s getting close to time for a whole new cast. There seems to be a bunch who have been on for a while: Samberg (05), Hader (05), Sudeikis (05), Kenan (03), Armisen (02), Meyers (01). All of them have to be thinking about going. Except Kenan, I think he’d stay forever if they let him (but they shouldn’t much longer). I didn’t realize how long Seth Meyers has been around, how has he not written at least 3 hilarious movies during the last decade?
I still don’t know why SNL breaks for the summer as a traditional show. Spend the summer doing a few episodes with whatever cast is around. Showcase some potential new talent. Don’t waste the chance of the spotlight with all the news stories that break.
