There were some good skits last night and overall the season has been pretty strong so far even having lost some of their biggest stars at the end of last season. There are people who are stepping up to fill their shoes, as always is the case with SNL. That is what makes this show so great. When you think that the funniest people have left, someone else will step up and take over.
It was said the show was dead when Belushi and Akroyd and Chase left the show. It was said that SNL was dead when Eddie Murphy and Billy Crystal left the show. It was said the show was dead when Will Ferrell left the show. It was said that SNL was dead when Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey and Phil Hartman left the show. It was said the show was dead when Adam Sandler left the show. You get the point. Whenever people leave, new ones step up. My prediction for the next big star is Taran Killam. I said this last season and I stand by that. He is the funniest guy on the show right now.
Here is a highlight from last night that shows Bruce Willis doing some things that you would never have thought you would ever see Bruce Willis do. It’s a boy dance party.
Next week’s host is a big name who has surprisingly never hosted, Edward Norton. The musical guest will be someone you probably have never heard of but might recognize from one of the most annoying commercials in the last year, Janelle Monae.
