    Wait a second...you TAPE Saturday Night Live, then watch it LATER?

    Hmmm...you have a more serious problem than I'd initially thought.

    You don't think Chris Kaatan is funny, too, do you?

    Do any channels have nothing but snow on them at 2:30 a.m. anymore? If so, you might like that better.

    Rob Riggle, for those of us who have watched the show in the past 5 years.

    FWIW, I think the low point was the first skit after the monologue on the show Hanks hosted last season. Does anybody remember that laugh-free Wheel of Fortune sketch? Absolutely freakin' painful to watch.

    How that ever got on the air is beyond me.

    I'm old enough to remember when watching SNL was a big deal in the 1970s. I don't watch anymore because, if I'm not totally exhausted from my kids, I probably would watch a DVD with my wife if we were both up at that hour.

    So I'm asking this to some of the younger people - Does Saturday Night Live still matter in a television world with hundreds of channels?

    That would be Rob Riggle, new Daily Show correspondent. As of last night.

    I thought Kattan did some brilliant stuff. I mean, Mr. Peepers, either you loved it or you hated it. The fact that it kept coming back was an indication that not everyone hated it. Kattan and Ferrell at the Roxbury. Mango ... again, his signature line doesn't become a 15-minute catch phrase if some people didn't really like it.

    All were an indication of some talent.

    Shottie, I respect your opinion a lot. But we've all been through this before.

    Yes, some people apparently liked Kattan's Mango, so it was popular.

    The Macarena was popular.
    The Baha Men were popular.
    The Five People You Meet in Heaven was popular.

    Does not mean any were actually good.

    Mango. Sucked. Balls.

    Yeah, we have been through this before. ;)

    With the bottom line being that Joe Blow loving Mango means no more or no less than you hating it ... and vice versa.

    My point only is that I didn't find Kattan, and the Mango character in particular, funny. Not one bit.

    If you do, which apparently you do, that's fine. We can agree to disagree and leave it at that. But I will never acquiesce to the fact that the popularity of anything denotes its quality and 'proves' your viewpoint, because it doesn't.

    That's all. Carry on. :D

    What three cast members did they axe again?

    And did they use a real axe?
