    Hi. It's called the internet. You ever hear of it? That clip was everywhere, and there was even a thread here on it. By the by, you still don't have it. This discussion wasn't about the merit of SNL on whole, was NOT about what you had to do to see Lazy Sunday, it was about how funny the clip is. So, what does your (errant) point about having to sit through entire episodes to even see it have to do with anything?

    I think there's hope, though. If I recall correctly, Tina Fey's either leaving or her role's being reduced because of her new show on NBC. I've been saying for years that she's the main problem because she's one of the head writers. Hopefully, a reshuffling of the writing deck will help matters.

    Also, I think Samberg, Sudekis, Hader and, most especially, Wiig present a strong nucleus for the next little bit here. I guess we'll just have to see.

    A-No. 1: Get the fuck rid of Fey and Pohler on Update. Just brutal. Makes me pine for Colin Quinn.

    It was just the other day I was wondering why nobody shows Laurel and Hardy movies on TV any more. The funniest comedy duo of all time, bar none.

    The Internet? Is that thing still around?
    Yeah, the clip is everywhere, but so was the clip of that moron William Hung (or whatever his name was) singing from that godawful American Idol. Just because it was everywhere doesn't mean I went out of my way to find it. And if the product from SNL has been putrid for years, then why would I make an attempt to see one particular clip for the one funny moment this show has produced in recent memory?

    And the thread IS indeed about the merit of SNL. The whole thing was started because of ... gasp ... another media dissecting how badly it blows. The thread was NOT about that one solitary clip.
