Trivia

In November 2007, the cast, excluding Maya Rudolph, gave a live unaired performance of SNL at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City as a result of the WGA Strike. The show featured old and rejected sketches with the proceeds going to the show's production staff. The host was Michael Cera and the musical guest was Yo La Tengo. Rachel Dratch, Horatio Sanz, and Norah Jones made cameo appearances. See more »

Its down but not out

Right now this show is in a transitional phase. The cast is very average (aside from Fallon and Hammond) and it might be time for Daddy Lorne to blow it up and start again. In my opinion no one is more annoying than Rachel Dratch! The fact that she was in five sketches and Fallon in one(excluding WU) the other night speaks volumes of the shows mediocrity. However, to those that say it'll never come back let me say you're mistaken. SNL has always rebounded from it's down years and it will continue to do so.
