Tina Fey still has the touch of gold.

Fey's impersonation of Republican VP nominee Sarah Parlin is bringing in big numbers.

This weekend's Saturday Night Live averaged a 7.4 household rating/18 share in market.

SNL is also up 49% in the ratings compared with the first four weeks of last season.

It seems people are into political humor as SNL's skits are very heavy into politics this season.

This weekend included a spoof between Palin and Democrat Joe Biden.

And, for the third time this season, Palin was portrayed by Fey.

As for the moderator Gwen Ifill, she was played by "surprise" guest Queen Latifah.

ABC News political director David Chalian says, "Clearly, Saturday Night Live and Tina Fey's spot-on creation of Sarah Palin is now a part of this election season. It does show a frame through which a lot of people see these candidates."

  3. 3

    It helps ease the pain! Keep it up SNL! You know McCain can't!



  4. 4

    I sending my brother to everyone's house that doesn't vote this John and Sarah. He'll change your fucking minds in a hurry.
    Don't mess with Roy.

    Queen Latifah was hysterical in her facial expressions. Once again Palin was dead on playing Palin. What's even more funny is all they have to do is use Palin's own words against her.



  6. 6

    Glad to see that SNL is back on track. There were many times this show sucked big time….



  7. 7

    THAT SHIT WAS JOKES!



  8. 8

    It is so nice to see portrayals of a real life dumbass trainwreck like Palin!! FABULOUS!!



  9. 9

    SNL was great again! Tina rocks and I've heard so many people talk about watching it - people who generally didn't make a special effort to watch SNL before. There is just SO much to make fun of with Palin. God save us all if McCain becomes President.

    Those stupid shitfuckers better start making fun of Osama bin Laden and how he fucks all the recruiters that enter his cave.

    Re: Big Black Dick
    I had myself a big black one once but unfortunately he was also with two other girls….

    Now YOU get enough from ONE white bitch girl don't you?



  14. 14

    FUCKERS…we are on the eve of world-wide financial collapse and this fucking GOPalin twat is out talking shit about Obama without offering a single positive thing that she or McPain can offer. We are FUCKED!



  15. 15

    Like the newspaper said - Tina Fey is great, but Palin is basically handing it to her on a platter — which is true.
    -
    Tina's portrayal is more REALITY than SPOOF !!



  16. 16

    Re: Cheeky! – You said it !!! I suspect Tina would make a far better VP than Palin.
    -
    Go Tina !



  17. 17

    It was brilliant!



  18. 18

    A.C.O.R.N. may get
    Obama elected yet,
    they are really good
    at getting voters
    to register for him.

    Re: RashManly
    I like Palin because her favorite movie is Army of Darkness, which is where RashManly's icon comes from.



  20. 20

    that's so funny - i and a couple of my friends watched this debate and we really would drink every time they said "maverick" - ha!!



  21. 21

    First of all, ANYTHING that the Queen does is fab-u-luss! SNL blew it though, b/c they failed to pin an ENORMOUS flag pin on Fey/Palin, and worse, they didn't glue a stiff bang-like piece of hair to Fey/Palin's eyelash and yank it up and down whenever she attempted to answer a question, or wink atcha. What a born again moron she pretends to be.

    Re: Furby Fuckina Fuckwad – Da mo da merryer!



  23. 23

    This is why SNL would be a great show if it were no more than ten minutes long.



  24. 24

    I don't care what people say or think but, Tina Fey is HOT! Granted that is a bad picture of her but, overall she is HOT!



  25. 25

    It was funny, but they are milking this one dry.

    26

    Yeah, the world economy is collapsing, but at least we're laughing as it goes down.



  27. 27

    Id vote for Tina Fey LONG before I ever would McCain's secret lover Sarah

  28. KayJ says – reply to this


    28

    id vote for tina fey



  29. 29

    Sarah Palin is the only one of the 4 who won't bore us all to death. Just think of how dour 4 years of Obama and Biden wouldbe. We would be begging to bring back the real thing. Carter-Mondale. See Truth According 2 Tom. But since Perez is censoring use To instead of 2.



  30. 30

    Keep it up Tina!!!! The more the media portrays Sarah as the bumbling redneck trailer trash buffoon that she is, the more we assure a victory for Obama! We need to make sure that, by the time we're done with her, Sarah couldn't run for DOG CATCHER in Wasilla!!!! VICTORY THROUGH OBAMA!!!

    Barack Obama: He'll save every one of us!



  31. 31

    Gotta give it to queen Latifa she was awesome and loved the fact she asked the gay marriage question in all her lesbian-ness - you go girl. Sarah Palin is the best thing to happen to Tina Fey - lets hope she remembers that Palin was good for her career - any more skits however - it may look like she's milking it - but since SNL sucks donkey dick anyways - they'll play it into the ground to where it's no longer funny cause they suck most of the time



  32. 32

    Nah. Queen Latifah is WAY more fat and ugly than Gwen Ifill (if that's even possible)

    Also sarah Palin is FAR more sexy than Tina Fey.

    thumbs down for SNL again.

    Why not at least pretend to not be partisan hacks and get back to comedy.

    There are plenty of Barack Hussein gaffe's to be parodied….but evidently they are not allowed to insult the One.

    you have GOT to be kidding.

    "Whiteness is satanic"
    Barack Hussein Obama's 20 year pastor and "spiritual mentor" Jeremiah Wright

    "Allah will come on a space ship and kill all the white devils"

  35. 35

    gotta love Tina Fey!



  36. 36

    I love the movie
    ARMY OF DARKNESS!
    Bruce Campbell rocks!
    You are right about the icon,
    I'm a giant Bruce Campbell fan!
    .
    "Thats what we call pillow talk, baby!"
    "Come get some!"
    "This is called a boomstick!"
    .
    I love the one liners from
    Army Of Darkness!
    .
    If Perez runs for President
    in 2012, Bruce Campbell should be
    in charge of National Defense,
    with Tina Fey for his Vice President.
    .
    (Now that I know Sexy Sarah loves
    Army Of Darkness, I have an even
    bigger crush on her!!!)
