    Glad we DVR SNL. We can fast-forward most of the Miley Cyrus crap.

    Kat Dennings is fine. She has more style & poise than Miley and Degenerate Tina Feyhole…

    I don’t buy in to that… Know I really don’t buy into that! You don’t buy $ into that either!

    I would LOVE to see Tegan & Sara as a musical guest.

    How about getting Kat Dennings for SNL on October 26th, with musical guest A Silent Film. I’ve recommended her 40 times this year on SNL’s Facebook page.

    I’ll be busy doing something else on October 5.

    Tina Fey! An immense talent in writing, producing, innovating and acting. I’m setting my VCR for her hosting — I’m certain there is some contractual arrangements with Michaels, but it is correct that she returns to her big break show to give back.

    It’s not fair to have that much talent wrapped up in one person, but I’ll set fairness aside, just this once, and watch!
