Six new featured players made their debut on Saturday Night Live in the wake of the exodus of cast favorites Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis. So far, there are no breakout stars. I miss Fred Armisen as president Obama and Bill Hader as a smarmy game show host. This could be a rough season for Lorne Michaels.
Tina Fey returned to co-host and the indie rock band, Arcade Fire, were musical guests. Tina’s best skit was the hilarious Girls parody. And Arcade Fire are always A+.
Here are a few of my favorite skits. What were yours?
The Cold Open – Obamacare speaks on the affordable care act. Aaron Paul, from Breaking Bad makes a cameo and it’s everything.
This Girls parody was the skit of the night. Anyone who watches the show knows what I mean.
New Cast Member or Arcade Fire
The Arcade Fire people were pretty funny.
Speaking of which.. Performances from musical guest Arcade Fire. Fun Fact to Know and Tell: Win Butler’s grandmother was a member of the 60s 70s vocal group, The King Sisters.
