Hello, nurse: It's the Age of Fey and Poehler, as they are the first all-female Weekend Update team on Saturday Night Live. Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon had a nice chemistry - you know, sharp, caustic and riffing on how Jimmy was stupid and pretty and Tina was slutty and angry - but we were feeling Fallon Fatigue, as he couldn't really keep his shizzle together during skits, especially ones with Horatio Sanz. So Gothamist was terrifically excited to see Amy Poehler's blond, twinkling yet semi-maniacal eyed. face next to Tina behind the desk. And, for the boys (and girls), there is the promise of lots of lesbian flirting this season.
What did you think of the premiere? Gothamist loved the debate parody, and even though it was too soon after the opening monologue, the sketch about John Kerry, Theresa Heinz Kerry, James Carville, and, Bill Clinton, as played by Darrell Hammond (yay!), was fun, too. Ben Affleck needs to stay behind costumes and make-up more often. And how did you like that Unidentified New Jersey Resident? Whatevs will have a review of SNL from Nummer & H-Bomb, and Saturday-Night-Live.com has a smattering of reviews from different poeople too. And the Daily News had an article about how SNL was still successful.
