She should, she isn't doing anything else really.

I hope she doesn't though. I don't think that she is very funny.

Every time Mary Katherine Gallager was on was a good time for a bathroom break

Molly Shannon should never appear on TV again. She needs to explore other career opportunities, like waiting tables at a Shoney's or something.

I agree with everyone in this thread. SNL should stay as far away from her as is humanly possible. She is not funny at all. All of her characters are the same, which wouldn't be a big problem except that they are all annoying and unfunny.

Exactly. She was nothing but a problem for the show. A thorn in their side. Let her go and try to do Shakesphere or something, just not the comedies. Comedy isn't her thing AT ALL.

I'm a fan of the gal. She's a great utility player. Every sketch she was in ... she was IN a 110 percent. Watch her in those lame Goth Talk sketches. She's intense.

I'm a fan of her too. I always thought she was funny. The show just doesn't seem funny anymore.

I can't think of any of her characters that were truly funny. She had a spot here and there but it was rare imo.

She'd better. There was a question about her on "The Weakest Link" and the contestant had no clue who she was.

I thought she was okay, if annoying on a few occasions. What I found rather lame with last week's episode was she seemed to carry this "Waahaha, I'm Molly Shannon" aura during her "re-appearance." Lordy, it had only been a month or so since she left! And during the "final" episode, she made a big deal of that. You are no Dana Carvey; in fact, you're no David Spade -- you're just above Ellen Cleighorn.

Her characters were just sooooo repititous and unfunny. She was quite bearable when she underplayed scenes and was more subtle, but all those lame catch-phrases and waving her arms and kicking her legs all the time made me change the channel....

I actually think she is just below Cleghorne. I actually laughed at some of Cleghorne's lines/characters during her tenure on the show. I can't recall ever laughing at one of Shannon's characters.

I would also place Shannon WAY below Cleghorne.
