The thinking was probably along the lines of, "Obama's likely to be in office for another four years, Armisen's unlikely to stick around that long, we need to give Pharaoh a reason to be on the show, this seems like a decent time to make the switch."

Taran Killam will likely take on the part of Romney running mate Paul Ryan.

I just assumed that would go to Hader, but Taran Killam? Speaking as one doughy guy to another, you're too doughy to play Paul Ryan.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 13 September 2012 05:28 (six years ago) Permalink

yeah seriously -- Hader would be a good call

some dude, Thursday, 13 September 2012 10:43 (six years ago) Permalink

already said it upthread, but they shouldn't have gotten rid of Paul Brittain as long as Ryan could have made VP

not crazy about Sudeikis's Mitt Romney but glad that will keep him on the show for at least half the season

some dude, Thursday, 13 September 2012 11:26 (six years ago) Permalink

I love his Romney. He gets at the the utter lack of empathy thing pretty well. I just think they haven't learned to write Romney in an interesting way yet.

Clay, Thursday, 13 September 2012 23:13 (six years ago) Permalink

yeah that's probably true. there's so much more fuel for jokes now, i could see him pulling off some great Romney sketches this fall.

his biden > his romney

i'm sorta confused about this "sex over 50 sketch"... are we supposed to pretend that we don't remember when this skit was about pubescent kids or what?

That's part of the thing with that sketch, they've done it a bunch of times now and each time its the set of a different talk show. Doesn't really make it any funnier, just sayin'.

I'm tentatively calling bullshit on Hiddleston. I can't find any news about it anywhere, and his name in particular was jokingly mentioned in some article about the hosts we were likely to end up with when Lorne started soliciting suggestions from the audience. But then again, maybe this is the power of the people at work!

Hiddleston has a lot of batshit fans on twitter and tumblr, so either option could be a possibility.

pharoah's obama wasn't bad but understandably tentative. i just hope he gets more comfortable with the role before the debate sketches - you can't have romney being more smooth than obama

Romney hi-fiving dude's head was fantastic

A little inside baseball here, but it made me really happy to see Vanessa Bayer working with puppets again (as she used to be a performer for iO's hilarious improv puppet show, Felt). And that sketch was the highlight of the night, imo.

I was also pleasantly surprised with MacFarlane. Especially since his monologue seemed like a harbinger of intolerable punchability.

no joke, this was one of the main stories of the Olympics in the US

Don't know shit about Loki, prefer to think of him as the guy from The Deep Blue Sea (not the idiot shark movie) and War Horse.

I guess we are in our last months of Michael Shannon being anything but General Zod? Fuck eternal teenagerdom.
