Thumbs Down: SNL
Why would Saturday Night Live dump Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam? The current cast, especially the women, are really strong. It took a few years to mesh and get their rhythm, but they're finally coming together. Killam has acted as pretty much the shows male lead for a few years and Pharoah just came off his strongest season to date. It seemed as last season was coming to an end, the writers were using Killam less, but I didn't see the writing on the wall. Will miss both of these talented men next season very much!
