Lots of fodder from the presidential debate

(Newser) – Big Bird rode Mitt Romney's debate crack all the way to a guest appearance on SNL's "Weekend Update" last night, wryly telling Seth Meyers he'd gotten "a million tweets" about the mention, reports the AP. The segment followed a Cold Open in which Barack Obama gets woozy mid-debate and frets about forgetting his anniversary. "This is bad," he muses, as Jason Sudeikis' Mitt Romney takes credit for killing Osama bin Laden. Host Daniel Craig "didn't exactly kill it," notes Radar, but the blond Bond did turn in a solid performance, particularly as 007 himself in a set featuring some, er, lesser-known Bond girls.

I have 4 stations that are PBS stations and they run 24 hours a day. One of them only plays children shows. Sounds like they've gone overboard with all the extra money that's coming in. SNL has become the pathway to Hollywood and movie stardom. If you don't mind suffering the wanna be comedians and the bad writers in anticipation of seeing a good comedian with a good writer it's worth watching. If they do get a good one, the question is how long they'll be there. I've never seen a comedian that left SNL for Hollywood return when their career went belly up. Maybe that's part of the deal. When you leave, that's it. No coming back. Or it might be too humiliating. Ain't show business grand.

One of the WORST SNLs in a long time. Still, not nearly as bad as the train wreck Rummy the Bummy is engineering.

How many people are aware that we first started "borrowing" money from China during the Nixon administration?
