but the point of the country music skit is that neither of them can sing. That's why I laughed, anyway!

Well, you can still hear a good voice somewhere in there. And the Amy Adams thing, too

I guess I didn't pay enough attention to her voice tonight, but I wouldn't be surprised if she can sing.

. I thought that skit was a takeoff on the old skits with Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer as Bobbie Mohan-now those skits were hilarious! I laughed so hard at them that I couldn't breathe!

I'll agree with that, although she seems to have stolen some style from Mo Collins of MADTV, whom I prefer.

She definitely has many of the same mannerisms as Mo Collins, i first noticed this when she would do the segments on Weekend Update as the aunt that was doing the movie reviews. It was pure Mo.

Ooh me too! Remember her as Stuart's mother??? And when she would play a contestant on a quiz show? and when she'd have her pants waist pulled all the way up to her neck practically?

I should go see if there are videos from those shows. I miss her.

Kristen is by far the best new talent on the show in years, I wish they would feature the women on the show more often. The current group of ladies is so much funnier then the show gives them credit for.

I love Kristen Wiig. She was hilarious in Knocked Up.
One time, Patti LuPone punched me in the face...


It was awesome.

The Suze Orman show definitely showed her range. She and Andy Samberg are my current favorites.

The only time I enjoyed myself in KNOCKED UP was when Kristen Wiig would come on. Wish she had been on when SNL had good writers (back in the days of Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, and Molly Shannon...good old times).

Funny thing is Ray back in the "Good Days" of Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer et al. people were saying the writers sucked and the show wasn't as funny as it was in the good old days of Phil Hartman and Mike Myers. Funny how that happens. In a few years people will be remembering just how good the Christen Wiig era was!
I think one of the most underrated and underused young talents on that show is Bill Hader. His impressions are spot on!

I noticed that a while ago so....
probably a lot sooner than you did so.....
and I invented laughter so...

I get your point, SNAFU, except that in the past several years, I rarely laugh if ever. I used to laugh a lot in the "old" days. It must be a generational thing.

Her version of LET'S DUET from the criminally underrated "Walk Hard" is better than whoever Jenna Fischer was lip-synching to:

Jane, I find Andy Samberg as funny as colon polyps yet he is considered the show's Wunderkind. It is generational we are not their target demagraphic. I find Hader's impressions of old timers like Vincent Price and stars of that era hysterical however they are lost on todays audiences and never make it to air.

The actors are only as good as the material given to them. Imagine if Kristin Wiig was on the show back in the 90s. She would rock the hell out of that. I think same goes for Andy Samberg.

I don't agree that back in the mid 90s, the writers sucked. Perhaps it wasn't as great as it was back in the HARTMAN, MYERS, FARLEY, SANDLER days, but it was still great and memorable. Now, however, is probably the weakest I've ever seen SNL.

I hope Kristin Wiig is going to be big.

Hey wait..at one point, there was only 2 women in the show.. Amy Poehler and Kristin Wiig, right? That's crazy.

Now they're featuring one woman. I forgot her name.
