    Since Seth Myers left, it seems to me every week like some of the sketches are written by high school kids... or maybe I'm just getting old and don't appreciate the humor. This week it was the Sasquatch sketch that seemed like juvenile humor to me, and the dinner with the parents sketch was just borderline amusing. I didn't know who James Bey was before this show, and I really liked him. Also looking forward to Stefon!

    They may surprise us, but I'm not getting my hopes up for Stefon. He was written by John Mulaney, and it was Mulaney's ability to add lines between the dress rehearsal and live show that always made Hader laugh. He has sent in some writing since he left SNL, and did write a sketch over the phone at least once. But he's on tour right now with his stand up so he may not be able to.

    With regards to the different sketches / juvenile humor, etc, I think that's what makes the show great. I remember Seth Meyers saying once (I think he was quoting Lorne Michaels) that a great SNL should have two sketches you quote, 1-2 you hate and others that make you laugh. What each person identifies as each of those will be different, but if everyone reacts that way, it means they gave a variety of forms of comedy and reached a broad audience.
