I've noticed, as I'm sure many others have, that Saturday Night Live is having a much better season. I don't think it's a coincidence that this occurred at the same time Studio 60 came on the air. It's my firm belief that Aaron Sorkin was not only able to create a fabulous show, but that he also was able to bring the level of creativity at SNL up a notch. OK, several notches. Many, many . . . but you get the idea.
Studio 60 has been off the air for a couple of weeks. SNL has not been as funny; last week's episode was a return to the painful, with a few exceptions. (Jake Gyllenhaal looking surprisingly good in drag and "Did you see what I just did? I Dog Whispered you" are two I can remember off the top of my head.)
Coincidence? I think not.
