The new SNL season started tonight, and other than Darrell Hammond, there is no one on the cast that I find consistently funny. Andy Samberg and Kenan Thompson are mildly amusing from time to time, I guess. And Kristen Wiig occasionally has a decent role. Other than that, there have been some lean years for SNL, but this may be the weakest line-up I can remember.
Side note- Neil Patrick Harris is the host, and I have to say I think he has been particularly savvy with his brand, especially with his roles in the Harold and Kumar franchise. He is sort of the William Shatner of my generation, and I like how he makes fun of himself. And I mean that as a compliment, and we will probably see him have a rather long and lucrative career. If I am remembering correctly, a friend who was there told me that Harris made quite the scene at South by Southwest.
At any rate, weak SNL cast this year. I realized I forgot Jason Sudekis. He is fair to middlin’.
