    Biden Roars, Ryan Guzzles Water, Raddatz Wins in SNL's VP Debate

    Martha Raddatz was the big winner at the Vice-Presidential debate, and she had some great moments in SNL’s terrific opening sketch too: look at how smoothly she feints, using baseball to sneak in a question about abortion.  Kate McKinnon, who has already done the unthinkable by makin...

    SNL and the Post-Debate Fallout (The Horror, The Horror!)

    It’s a good thing SNL had the presidential debate as fodder, because they absolutely wasted Daniel Craig. And while Jay Pharoah continues to struggle with his Obama impression (why the grimace? Obama doesn’t channel Denzel Washington) the sketches included a very funny, perfectly&nd...

    SNL's Lost Bond Girls, From Annie Hall to Penny Marshall

    Daniel Craig was game as host of SNL, but he was seriously underused and put into some of the worst-written sketches in recent memory, including an excruciatingly long one in which he was a construction worker with a mangled vocabulary of cat calls. He had better material – but not much m...
