    Beck Bennett is the guy who moderates the panel of talkative kids in the AT&T commercials. I think he’s hilarious. Hope he’s a good fit for “SNL.”

    This means there will be seventeen of them until Christmas. Not much chance of there being a breakout star this year.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Seventeen until Christmas? Remember the first year of SNL. 1975-76? John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Dan Ackroyd, Garrett Morris, Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman and Gilda Radner? They had a few featured players, but they did not appear each week. In the second season, Chase left the show and Bill Murray replaced him. The 1st season was quality not quantity.

    Is Nasim definitely coming back?
