I must admit I didn't watch the VP debate last night. I decided to watch baseball instead. I know, I know, but I knew I wasn't going to be intellectually stimulated either way, so might as well have some fun. Apparently though I was about the only one outside of LA or Chicago who didn't watch the debate because it got more viewers than the Presidential debate. Usually they get about half.
Anyway, the moderator of the debate last night was Gwen Ifill, and SNL has signed up Queen Latifah to play her when they do a VP debate sketch this weekend. Obviously you have Fey as Palin, but what I think would be a great move is to have Anne Hathaway who is the host this week, play Biden. I think she could pull it off.
It just seems as if SNL really can't do anything wrong this year because of the election. They will probably be hurting again by Christmas, but for now they definitely are making at least the first ten minutes of each show very watchable. Not that I would actually watch the show. I mean it is available on the website, and easier, and lets face it. Cinemax has a triple feature on about the same time as SNL if you know what I mean.
