    I don't recall the name Taran Killam from Scrubs.

    SNL lost all relevance many years ago. I guess NBC has nothing better to put on at 11:30 on Sat. nights. The only exception was the time that Payton Manning hosted a few years ago...that one actually was funny at times.

    He was only in 4 episodes.

    He was also in 4 episodes of How I Met Your Mother.

    Fingers crossed that Kristen Wiig decides to leave. I'm sick of all her characters.

    I like SNL, and it still has some pretty funny skits. The Tiger Woods parody last season seemed pretty relevant. It will remain on my season pass list.

    I didn't like that SNL just had 1 leading female the last season or so. And yes, she alone can't do everything and can be tiring to see.

    I think the late 90's/early 2000's they had a full cast and the show was a lot better.

    Even with Weekend Update:
    Jimmy Fallon & Tina F
    Tina & Amy P
    Amy P & Seth
    Seth

    It lost a talent/quality each change. It needs to have 2.

    I suppose it's all because of budget issues. Because of fragmented TV audiences, the show loses viewers and doesn't seem to get enough for salary support for a larger talented cast.

    It was nice seeing the Betty White episode as it was a reunion of some sort seeing old cast members from 2000-2010.

    I have to disagree that it needs to have co-anchors, since I liked Weekend Update best when it was Dennis Miller solo and then again when it was Norm MacDonald solo.

    I see that, in addition to Will Forte, Jenny Slate is also no longer on the show -- but Kristen Wiig remains.

    Too bad we can't go back to the 1980s and see the show from then... that's when it was good.

    Martin Short, Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal, Eddie Murphy, etc.

    They need writers.

    Andy Sandberg (spelling) is probably the only funny one there.
