SNL live posts?

The U.S. politics megaposts on the Blue get gummed up with live discussion of "Saturday Night Live" whenever it's new. Should we start treating these as Special Events, pre-posting them and directing traffic over here? [more inside]

Saturday Night Live: Amy Schumer / The Weeknd  Season 41, Ep 2

Amy Schumer brings the noise in a tight stand-up monologue, and Weekend Update is finding its groove, but the rest is kind of limp. Considering that the host is a sketch artiste in her own right with plenty to say on her own show, the sketches are depressingly generic. Virtually any female guest host could have served as the overbearing friend at someone else's wedding shower, or a badly improv-ing Mary Todd Lincoln re-enactor, or even one of the flight attendants who fall out of the plane.

Saturday Night Live: Taraji P. Henson / Mumford & Sons  Season 40, Ep 18

A show that just felt... off, with a cold open that more or less just said "Kate McKinnon's going to be Hillary, so get used to her", a weird QVC sketch that didn't go anywhere, and two wheel-of-impressions sketches. On the plus side, a pretty strong Weekend Update that shows Colin Jost and Michael Che are comfortable with each other and the guest characters (including a lumpy Billy Crystal).

Saturday Night Live: Michael Keaton/Carly Rae Jepsen  Season 40, Ep 17

Michael Keaton hosts for the first time since 1982 (which is before musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen was born). A few good Easter jokes, Weekend Update finally hitting its stride, and a goofy cameo by Norman Reedus. Fewer sketches that went on for longer and the show ran ... short?
