<strong>That's funny...actually, the Weekend Update segment with Fey and Jimmy Fallon are now my LEAST liked parts, even though, as you said, Tina Fey IS a hottie.
She's got that LOOK I dig so much.
But they act like they're in junior high and are doing a skit. Fallon, talented and funny as he is, rubs me wrong with that shy boy, "oops, am I being bad right now?" manner of his. And he and Fey both laugh at their own jokes too much, which I find unappealing.
Things are funnier when the people doing the funny stuff aren't "in on it". To me, anyway.
They just seem too amateurish and eager to please during those segments.
The other cast members, the new ones, I have only seen on one or two episodes, so I can't put it all together.
I like SNL when it's playing "up" and being smart. That's when it shines. Too much lately (past couple of years or so), it's seemed to content to take the low-rent, teenage boy Farrelly Brothers road.
To me, that's just not funny. It's too easy and a complete cop-out to just be gross or lewd with nothing behind it.</strong><hr></blockquote>
the cast they have right now is terrible--worse, IMO than the casts in the 80s. the black dude they have is NOT funny ever. the fat dude (wannabe replacement for farley??) is not funny. fallon acts like a moron, and seems to have trouble speaking, at least during the Weekend Update--he seems to stuttor sometimes, which takes away the effect of the few funny things he says...
they need to get some better cast members, and better writers and get rid of the idiots they have in there now.
