Fret Not, Republicans: Palin Has Acting Career After Campaign

Is she destined to be a TV star?

In the coming weeks, many will shed tears. For many, a black man running the nation is a dream¬†realized; unfortunately¬†for others, it will be perceived as a nightmare. Either way, we should take a moment and give thanks (heck, Turkey Day is just around the corner!) that the world met Sarah Louise Heath Palin (I call her SLHP in txts). As previously blogged, the current state of Saturday Night Live appears to be one of disarray. Not unlike the current state of the economy, it seems almost unfixable. But then the bailout bill came: Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. Let’s be honest, she’s a dead-ringer for the huntress Governor from the North, but maybe SNL should take the next step and go from artificial intelligence to REAL intelligence. Live from New York, its Saturday Night Palin! But wait, there’s more post here!

SNL: Saturday Not Living (Up to Anything Resembling its Former Greatness)

At this risk of this blog being 90% TV coverage (CW, why do you hurt so good?), I write to you with an urgent message. Saturday Night Live, once the pinnacle of humorous television broadcasting for a very long time, has reached a new low point (former low point: this, NOT for younger viewers). I consider the show to be in a state of grave atrophy. Last night for the premiere of the 33rd season of everyone’s once favorite place to see the next great comedic talents, they pulled out all the stops. With rumors of an Obama appearance (unfortunately natural disasters take precendence these days), the most legendary Olympic athlete of all time (sorry Kerri) hosting, and one of the top artists on the charts and in people’s minds these days, the potential for a comeback was at a fever pitch. Then the cameras started rolling. Ooh, boy.
