My name is Starkeesha and I am pissed.

Finesse had so much potential, but he either didn't push hard enough to get his material on air or didn't hook up with a writer that could get him on air enough.

Losing Parnell (again) is a crime. He can always be counted on for something funny. He seemed to be game for anything.

I'll only miss Horatio's Elton John and Aaron Neville impressions. I won't miss "Carol".

I still do not see the appeal of Kristen Wiig.

With Keenan Thompson staying on the show, where do this leave the much talked about and eagerly anticipated sequel to his excellent film GOOD BURGER?

Come on, you know that's all he's got after they finally notice that he's still drawing a paycheck and let him go.

I am quite sure Keenan can live off is SNAKES ON A PLANE residual checks forever.


Parnell leaving sucks, but he has a show for NBC in the works, so that might be okay.

Sanz just wasnt the same after Jimmy Fallon left and he had nobody to giggle with.

Mitchel? All I can remember of him is the skit where Lorne says "We have a guy named Finesse?"

Seriously - Keenan had goddamn better get Sam Jack to host again this season.

Horatio Sanz was usually funny - and Chris Parnell was always great, but they both had been on the show forever and it was time to move on. It's suprising that Parnell was let go right after being 50% of the show's biggest sketch in years, but it's also good to know that we won't be getting a million "beat-it-into-the-ground" sequels to "Lazy Sunday".

On a similar note, I'm always suprised when Darell Hammond comes back for another season. Don't get me wrong - he's probably the best impressionist the show's ever had, but I'm 26 and he's been on the cast since my freshman year of high school. Of course, the Democratic Presidential Nomination in 2008 is Al Gore's for the taking (he's running, I don't give a damn what he says and, at the end of the day, even the modern Democratic party isn't masochistic enough to nominate Hillary Clinton), and no one does him better.

Finesse Mitchell was always just there. He wasn't bad, but I can't think of anything I'm going to terribly miss.

And, tragically, Maya Rudolph is still not gone. Her identical impressions of Oprah Winfrey, Whitney Houston and Condoleeza Rice will survive to be terribly unfunny for another year. At least with Chris Parnell leaving that ought to be enough of a hole to kill that stupid "Nuni and Nuni" sketch forever. I hope.

She's not that great either, but they can seriously run "Two A-Holes" sketches every week and I won't get tired of them. They're among the most blatant examples of the SNL "same jokes in a new setting" recurring sketch formula in years but I'll be goddamned if those two didn't come into my store every single day. You know what that is, babe? Babe?

I like Two A-Holes. Kristen is also a good impressionist. But please let Target go the way of Carol.

I like Darrell a lot, but I think Phil Hartman might have a slight edge in impressions.

You beat me to it! Nobody holds a candle to Phil hartman in terms of impersinations. Hammond is a solid second, but there is a lot of distance between the two.

I don't know who was a better impressionist but Phil was definitly more versatile. I think Phil Hartman was probbly the most talented cast member ever on SNL.
Losing Parnll hurts the cast but Sanz is horrible so that makes up for it.

I think Rock has become the movie studio version of the Subway surrogate from Community. A living, breathing corporation built by a lab (a lab with chemicals) and a focus group. #AwwwShit
