Good Night, And Have A Pleasant Tomorrow

You've probably already seen this, but it's just too good too not use as a cheap excuse for a post:

The question is, what in the heck is SNL going to do without Amy Poehler? As you can see she's about to give birth, and once she and Will Arnett have their baby she will have done her last show. NBC announced that she will be getting her own show next year, though.

Saturday Night Live hasn't been great for a while, but I still found it worth Tivoing and skimming through for good content (which you can also now find on hulu). Poehler has incredible comedic range, and has typically been the star of a lot of skits. She is also one half of Weekend Update. Without her, I think I'll be doing a lot of skimming to find Andy Samberg's Digital Shorts.

Oh well, giving Poehler her own show might end up being a net gain for the viewers. If it's anywhere near as funny as 30 Rock, I'll be a fan.

Dude, I had no idea. First off, that was a funny skit. Pregnant women have to hate her though, she's up there being hilarious and cool and rapping, and other pregnant chicks are all like, "my baaaaack huuuuuurts."

What would Poehler do?

Now's the time to make the switch to MadTV. It's a very different brand and style of humor. It's a very slapstick and exaggerated version of an already slapstick and exaggerated culture -- California. But some of the characters are hilarious.

This dude reminds me of Kornfield and Mauer in one coach:

And this chick isn't on the show anymore but is one of the funniest chicks of all time. The dude in the middle reminds me of Huber.

I have to say I never thought MadTV was that funny but I've only seen a little bit of it. Looks like there's a ton on YouTube so I'll check it on out since you endorse so highly.

That sketch was great but I thought is was the 3rd best sketch of the night. The opening sketch was my favorite part and the Mark Wahlberg sketch was the second best.

I have watched more SNL over the last 4 weeks than I have in the last 4 years.
