Joe Pisopo- Probably going to be forgotten this round, but was one of only 2 cast members retained when the whole cast was gutted. Had some great impersonations, especially Frank Sinatra. I loved the Whiners too.

Mike Myers- Waynes World, party down, excellent. Linda Richman, I'm feeling kerflempt.

Gilda Radner- Baba Wawa, Roseanne Rosannadana, Emily Litella. Never mind. Bitch! She was in the first ever SNL skit.

If you don't like Tina Fey, go find a smart person and sit next to them when she's on. Laugh when they do, and no one will know that you don't understand.

(And the "wanna **** her" reason is also partially valid.)

so, you're telling me that it's not possible to be intelligent and not like her comedy? I abhor her because she's smug. she's made her name as a writer, supposedly--I just don't see it. as head writer of SNL, she was blessed with a great cast and one of the best of all-time (will ferrell), yet the show floundered. why? you'd think that somebody with talent as a writer could get more out of that cast. alas, she didn't.

I understand completely--tina fey is completely overrated. you know who really 'gets' her? neo-post feminists who watch american idol. is that what you are, kevin? you're better than that, man. she tries to come off as clever, but she's simply trying too hard.

Will Ferrell is overrated. Tina Fey pulled every ounce of talent out of him and helped make him a star. (I'm making that up, by the way. I have no idea.) And I think Tina Fey is popular beyond the neo-post feminist set, but I'm not sure since that's the group that I tend to hang out with.

(And ever since the Big Bang Theory discussion, it's fun to pretend that people who don't like a particular show or comedian aren't smart enough to get it.)

it's funny, IMDB.com doesn't have fey listed with a writing credit on any of will ferrell's highly grossing movies. I'm going to go out on a limb and give the guy a little credit as a good comedic actor; have you ever seen his SNL tryout? he was hilarious before he even met tina fey.

All kidding aside, other people must see something I don't in Will Ferrell. I thought he was fine in SNL. Not the best ever, but fine. But his movies have no interest to me whatsoever. I watched about 20 minutes of Anchorman and then decided that I would rather turn it off and look at the screen. (I don't know what else to do besides watch television.) His movies just seem banal to me.

For that matter, I loved Tina Fey's newscasts, and I like 30 Rock, but there are times in 30 Rock, not infrequently, that I think, "They're trying too hard here."

When I think of SNL as a launch pad for success, I think about Eddie Murphy before he turned white and Bill Murray. Amy Poehler's TV show is very good, too. But most of the SNL alumni seems to slog slowly to a stop after leaving SNL.

Are you seious? Cheri Oteri, Samberg, and freakin' Joe Pispaco (really) over Newman? I guess most of you have never seen the classic Miles Copperswhait series with Eric Idle. Borders on Festrunk Bros, Samuari, and NPR for real stuff. Check out the see-thru on Newman on the pirate one.
