    Is Ferrell promoting something or is Michaels just calling in a ton of favors?

    bush explaining to palin the way things work at the white house with the prez getting his work orders from the veep was pretty good. and the uncomfortable looks on mccain's face when they finally tracked him down were priceless.

    I could be wrong, but I think it was "a bummer-free zone."

    Definitely a bummer free zone. Also, Jam the Vote absolutely slayed me. That might be the best sketch they've done all season.

    Bummer-free, yes.

    really circus, samberg running around spewing up is the best sketch all season? that's not just setting the bar low, it's burying it.

    and yes, it was "bummer-free zone."

    Most definitely. I know a person speaking rhythmically, using rhyming words, in an ironic sense is what usually passes for comedy on SNL, but the absurdist stuff is what resonates with me these days. This cast is much better at the "WTF?" school of comedy, as evidenced by "The Looker," which is my other favorite bit from this season.

    Having said that, there's definitely some truth to your "setting the bar low" comment. When two of the episodes (Phelps/Faris) were pretty much completely laugh-free, that's a low bar to begin with.

    Will Ferrell will make his Broadway debut in January in the new solo comedy "You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W Bush."

    Production will be helmed by Adam McKay, the writer-director of Ferrell pics "Step Brothers," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" and "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy."

    Plot of the show remains sketchy, but the title and timing suggest a Bush caricature and plenty of topical humor.

    Production begins previews Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, ahead of a Feb. 1 opening at the Cort Theater. Limited engagement is skedded to shutter March 15.
