This weekend--while I was away at Mt. Charleston--Tina Fey appeared Saturday Night Live's Mother's Day episode for the second year in a row. Sadly, it wasn't quite as funny as her last gig helping Betty White, or as good as the last time she hosted solo either. I'm always a little puzzled when SNL is off the air for a couple of weeks, comes back after some major news stories hit, and then delivers a lackluster episode. But other than a slightly above average Weekend Update, and the skit below, there wasn't much to laugh about. And even this skit isn't the laugh riot it shouldhave been. They got in some good digs at FOX "News", and the roster of cartoon characters of potential GOP candidates, especially Fey's Sarah Palin impression. Shepard Smith probably gets the best ribbing.
