Should be good.

I hope.

I'm hoping the "30 Rock" Tina Fey shows up. I really didn't like the "SNL" Tina Fey.

Also, would it be too much to hope for a Baldwin cameo?

She was always too nervous to show up in the sketches but now that she has some confidence from 30 Rock it should be less awkward.

Even if the show is "so so" it'll still be good to see Tina.

Maybe we'll get an Alec Baldwin bit or at least a walk on. That's always good.

Amazing what a critically acclaimed sitcom can do for your image.

Is Mike Huckabee still supposed to have a cameo tonight? I think I read something about that last week.

I can't wait to see who they have to be Barack Obama. Tim Meadows, are ya busy?

What are the odds that we'll see a "There Will Be Blood" parody?

And like you guys have said, I hope to see Baldwin. Heck, I would even love to see Tracy Morgan show up also.

Tim Meadows wouldn't be a bad choice, but I'm hoping they bring in this guy:


I'm not sure if J.B. Smoove is still a writer on the show, but he would make a hilarious over-the-top Obama.

I had no idea he was a writer on the show. After seeing him on Curb this past season, he's gotta break out somewhere and soon. He's gonna be huge. They should use him for sure on SNL if he's still there.

I had no clue about that either. I wouldn't complain a single bit if they gave the spot to him.

I must admit though, I'm laughing just thinking about Meadows on the show once again.

Could you settle for Steve Martin?

Yep. He's on weekend update.

I can think of two reasons why they brought that new girl into the cast

She deserves to be in each and every segment.

The Annuale commercial was pretty good, made me LOL.

The new girl isn't too funny, but she does like showing off the ladies.

Too bad Carrie Underwood isn't showing off her legs like she did last April.

I liked the Annuale commercial also.

This wasn't anywhere close to being a great show, but there were a few moments that got me, and I guess in this day and age of SNL that must count for something.

Has Carrie Underwood lost a bunch of weight or has she always been this thin? Maybe I'm totally wrong, but she looks like shes lost quite a bit of her shape.

Carrie's lost a lot of babyfat from her AI days. Her voice sounded a little thin tonight.

I really hope Don Pardo doesn't kill himself trying to blow out all 90 of those candles.

I was waiting for him to just pass out there at the end.

If so, his hairpiece might have caught on fire.

The "Annuale" commercial was very funny, one of the better ad parodies.

I enjoyed the "I Drink Your Milkshake" bit too. Hader was really good.
"MY BOY! I'VE ABANDONED MY BOY! I'VE ABANDONED..oh here he is."

I actually made it through the whole thing, mostly for Carrie, who was, and looked, great, btw.

The Obama opening and Fey monologue were great.

LOVED the old people dvd.

Weekend Update was good, and at least Huckabee seems to have a sense of humor.

Celebrity Apprentice SVU was the weak point though.

"A second vagina."

The Milkshake bit was good, but I don't know if it was supposed to be a parody of an actual show on the food channel.
