Not everyone wants to spend 90 minutes watching Saturday Night Live in its entirety. Each week, I’m posting my favorite sketch of each episode, so you can just catch the best of SNL..
This week’s show: Miley Cyrus
The Sketch of the week: Mornin' Miami
Why? In a surprisingly solid episode, this sketch late in the rundown really got to me. A perfect combination writing and performing. The writing is a great sendup of the lame promos for tired morning shows ("Jeff Dunham's puppets are in studio. Jeff Dunham is not. Let's see how funny those puppets really are!") But the real beauty of this sketch is the silent stares of Bobby Moynihan and Kate McKinnon in between the promos. Moynihan's look of abject despair alone is worth a watch.
