We feel strongly that this should be a full time endeavor for Buress. Read More

The night turned out some sketches that will go down as best of the year and introduced a new Weekend Update character to the world. Freeman and co turned in one of the strongest episodes of the season, which makes it back-to-back solids. Can we get three this month? Read More
