Switching It Up
The Sabres lost last night, and I need to get them off the top of the page here, so I'm just stopping by to sing the praises of Amy Poehler on SNL. I was working late last night, so I ended up watching the new SNL with Shia LaBeouf (surprisingly funny, if sparesely utilized) and a rerun on E! (Will Ferrell's underwhelming return).
But the best parts of each episode were the Weekend Update segments, one with Amy Phoelher and Tina Fey ("this is the last time I suck beer out of dirt with you,") one with Poehler and Seth Myers. So I've gotta give it up for the common ingredient there. Tina and Amy got a lot of shit for being too giggly (read: female) when presenting the news, but in these days of wildly erratic SNL content, Update is the only reliably funny segment. Plus, she delivers a kickass Nancy Grace as well.
