Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis
Saturday night marked Bill Hader and Fred Armisen's last episode of SNL, but was it also the swan song for vet Jason Sudeikis?
Despite speculation for the last several days that...
Justin Bieber and Jason Sudeikis
Saturday Night Live was all Justin Bieber all the time last night, as the teen heartthrob acted as both the host and the musical guest. How did he do? Let's check out some of the highlights:

Live from New York, it's... Thursday night!
In honor of the nonstop flow of mock-worthy material commonly known as election season, Saturday Night Live resurrected its Thursday night half-hour specials. Thursday's episode, the first of three, was high on chuckles but low on guffaws, and the political moments were heavily Romney-focused. Jay Pharoah's newly-minted Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen.
Saturday Night Live returned for its season premiere in full election mode. The exits of high-profile cast members Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott weren't immediately felt thanks to strong impressions from the likes of Jay Pharoah as President Barack Obama and Bill Hader as Republican National Convention speaker, and chair enthusiast, Clint Eastwood.

It's official — Abby Elliott will not be returning to Saturday Night Live.
Elliott, the daughter of former SNL cast member Chris Elliott, is leaving the sketch show after four seasons, Splitsider reports. The announcement comes after stars Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg said their goodbyes on last season's finale.
Josh Brolin hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time and enjoyed his chance to get "career ending-ly stupid." Although Brolin couldn't show a clip from his new film, Men in Black 3, he and Jay Pharoah (impersonating Will Smith) were able to act out a scene from the movie. What a cliffhanger...

Question: What is up with Saturday Night Live? Who are all these people?? There are so many people in the cast that I simply can't connect to them. Back when SNL started, the Not Ready For Prime Time Players was a cast of 7 and you really "knew" them. You knew their characters, their skits, you looked forward to Roseanne Roseannadanna and Belushi's Samurai. Now with a cast of thousands (it seems), no one really cares. I, like so many others, watch the opening, fast-forward to the musical guest (maybe), watch the news, then erase. The best thing the PTB could do would be to trim the cast, keep the ones we really like (Wiig, Kenan, Samberg, Hader, Meyers) and start writing for them, not just writing to fill the time. — Deb
