Some people were quite critical of Saturday Night Live when they went out to replace the many cast members that were moving on to bigger and better things that of the six new cast members brought on board, only one was a woman and none of them were black. I mean, it's the 6th year of Obama's presidency and they have not been able to have a Michelle Obama impersonator. When Kerry Washington was announced as host, you knew they would take advantage of having a talented African American woman around. Kerry Washington was amazing every time she was on screen. I only wish the overall product was a little better.
Dark Horse Sketch
Outside the great skills of the host, nothing in this episode really impressed me. Nothing made me cringe quite like Bruce Willis's "pwetty kitty cat," but nothing could be considered great either. It is a very forgettable episode, which is sad since Kerry Washington proved to be a very worthy host. I hope she gets another shot at it when the writers have a little more practice writing to her style.
