An article in Splitsider yesterday suggested that this season of Saturday Night Live might be a transitional one, full of herky-jerky sketches and new cast members still acquiring their sea legs in the studio. If that’s the case, SNL may just turn into some polite filler while we wait for some killer live performances (note: the bar has been set by Kanye).
So the docket for the next couple of weeks reads as follows: this Saturday there’s no show, but SNL returns the following week with Kings of Leon on the 23rd and then Rihanna will round off the bill on the 30th (via Alternative Addiction). So, barring any more Glee parodies and “Gilly” appearances (wasn’t that just the worst?), looks like we have some decent reasons to tune in, I guess.
