Wow that's a bit harsh. I like her and though her work may not translate to mainstream comedy she is an excellent impressionist and I think she is the only current female cast member with the level of zaniness required for certain SNL sketches.

Low expectations.

Excited for Tina though! I bet a lot of old cast members will come back since she's hosting, and it will (at the very least) be a memorable first episode.

So the guy from the T-Mobile commercials interviewing the kids is on SNL now.

For the most part I've been impressed with the new cast members (at least what little they've been given).

Beck Bennett (the guy from AT&T commercials with little kids) and Kyle Mooney (longer hair with glasses in the "New Cast Member or Arcade Fire" sketch) are 2 who I think could end up breaking out. I first saw Kyle in his bit part on an episode of Parks & Rec and he was hilarious in it.

Oh man, a "We aren't pornstars anymore" sketch...I think these are awesome, especially with what Cecily Strong says (or improvs?)

I wish that this show would bring on experienced comedians. It used to work so well in the days of Phil Hartman (RIP) or Poehler. It just seems like an overload of novelty 20s comedians and people who are funny through social media. They also need to do more Kids In The Hall type sketches (maybe not as weird) rather than current event/political satires to give this show a wider appeal imo.

It's kind of incredible how far Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney have come. I've followed their work since they started posting youtube videos of their sketches under a sketch group called goodneighbour, http://www.youtube.com/user/GoodNeighborStuff.

And around one or two years ago, Kyle's awkward interviews that he posted on his channel somehow gets noticed by Jimmy Kimmel and he went to the show and showed his interviews.

Too bad about the third member of the group, Nick, though. Seeing his buddies go and get a job at SNL...

SNL has almost been cancelled or reduced to an hour several times. The first decade (1974-1984) with the original cast and Eddie Murphy following them was awesome. There's been a renaissance in recent years since Tina Fey started in 97, but before her start there were many mediocre casts and members in the post-Murphy and pre-Fey (1984-1997) years. We remember the good stuff.

THAT'S WHO THAT GUY IS! That was killing me all ****ing night.

I thought it was pretty mediocre, and none of the new cast members really stood out to me

Cecily Strong on Weekend Update was also pretty weak, but she'll get her feet under her there I'm sure, because she's good in her other sketches.

They really *never* use Nasim Pedrad.

Loved the Aaron Paul cameos. E-meth was great.

I thought it was okay. Hard to judge any of the new cast since they didn't have much to do. I'm glad Tim Robinson isn't on the cast anymore (he's a writer, just not on-screen), I thought he was the worst of last season's additions.

Considering he wasn't even the host, I thought having Aaron Paul show up in three different sketches was a bit much. It's like, yeah, Breaking Bad finale, meth, we get it.

Funny, most people I talk to say the golden years were around 1988-1994, with the likes of Hartman, Myers, Carvey, Sandler, Farley, Spade, and Schneider.

The season premiere actually had some laughs and exceeded my low expectations. No terrible sketches, and of course the pornstar infomercial was great. That said damn Tina was right... this is definitely a rebuilding year.

I'm gonna stick with this show as I always have, but it's gonna take time for the new cast to build rapport with each other (and the existing cast).

I miss Bill and Fred and Jason. It's painful watching Kenan's one-joke character try to carry certain sketches.

Notre Dame game, delayed SNL for about 30 minutes.

And I won't lie, so far it's not bad. Out of Twerk.


edit: Cecily Strong reminds me of Danica McKellar

Miley Cyrus has not been too good tonight. With that said, she looked hot as Michelle Bachman. It's surprising what a little normal looking hair can do to improve one's appearance. I also liked that segment with the government shutdown and John Boehner

Cecily Strong...not bad on Weekend Update.

Otherwise, pretty lackluster. That "Girlfriend's Show" made me want to put my ears out.

Was pretty good.

Also liked the Government Shutdown remix of that Miley song which I don't know the name of (We Won't Stop?).

I really liked the 50 Shades of Grey skit.

Yeah, I'm normally a fan of that skit, Jennifer Lawrence on last year was a good one, but that was god awful.

When Seth Meyers leaves to replace Fallon I see no reason to keep watching.

I think it was time SNL went back to a deadpan guy/girl for the Weekend Update. Myers does more of a wink into the camera, tongue in cheek style, like a Craig Fergusson. They should have someone on their mocking the news stories, and playing it straight like Colbert, or MacDonald used to. That is what I want to see, but I love deadpan humour.

Enjoyed the 50 Shades of Grey stuff...but this is where Bill Hader is really missed. I remember when they did a similar sketch with the Back to the Future Blu-Ray release, Hader pulled out an ALAN ALDA! I mean it was amazing...I watched that 50 Shades thing and just couldn't help but think "Man, if Hader was still on, would he have pulled out his 'Alda'?"

Mornin' Miami was a great bit, and Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy is always solid, but the rest was absolute trash. One of the worst episodes in a long time, maybe since that Melissa McCarthy trainwreck a few years ago.
