Now that we're all prepared, it should be known that we love this. It's writer and standup John Mulaney absolutely killing it in a wonderfully upbeat Weekend Update Segment.
I'm not gonna comment on the state of SNL. That's a job for countless blogs throughout the blogoworld. But the fact of the matter is, because it's SNL, and regardless of the season's actual quality, people will automatically hate on it. That's just the way things work.
"SNL totally sucks this season."
-Everybody since 1976
BUT regardless of whether or not SNL's having its best or worst season, there's no denying the fact that they've landed on a goldmine with John Mulaney, whose last appearance on Weekend Update was a painfully accurate rant on Girl Scout Cookies (Fuck those chicks, right?). The bottom line is: get this man some more face time. He may be the best best thing they've got going on right now.
