That's what fans of Saturday Night Live
were asking themselves this weekend when the show kicked off its 28th season. Despite talk that Darrell Hammond
might succeed Will Ferrell
as President Bush
, America's commander in chief was nowhere to be found. (A new Bush reportedly is in the works.) The absence of Dubya (well, really Ferrell) clearly had an impact on the ratings: Saturday's premiere was off 14 percent from 2001.
