Tracy Morgan is responsive and recovering following a fatal six-car accident that killed his friend comedian James McNair.
But the SNL and 30 Rock star is still listed as being in critical condition. Friends and family are still hoping that he makes it out of this tragic event OK.
Mr. Morgan’s old pal Andy Samberg spoke about the accident, saying:
Is There Bad Blood Between Adam Sandler & Saturday Night Live?! This Might Make You Wonder Just That!
No! Why? But why?!
"Why should I? I don't know how good it would be. I'm slow now. There are guys who love doing it, who are great at doing it. I just don't know how good I'd be doing it. I did what I could do on that show."
Oh ye of little faith!
We think that Adam would be a great host! He's an SNL legend as far as we're concerned!

What a way to finish a great season!
St. Vincent dropped by Saturday Night Live last night to give us a glimpse of what the future beholds, and we like what we see!
The female rocker, whose real name is Annie Clark, started off with her awesome jam called Digital Witness before finishing off in style with Birth in Reverse.
Try not to bob your head along to these tunes — it's semi-impossible!!!
We LOVE the choreography, the synthesizers, and obviously St. Vincent's amazing guitar skills and rockin' lyrics!
Check out both of the songs she performed last night (below) and see if you liked 'em as much as we did

The SNL Sketch You Were Never Supposed To See Gets A Second Chance On Late Night With Seth Meyers! Watch Sudeikis Kiss Forte Haaard HERE!
And to those people, we say, really?!? Really?!?
We are ALL about Seth and we think his new late night program is pretty damn perfect. Especially when he digs down to his SNL roots and features some stellar sketch comedy!
But last night was just BEYOND!
It was a mini SNL reunion with Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, Will Forte, and Vanessa Bayer taking the stage again to perform a skit that had been cut on the show a few years back.
What didn’t work then…well, sort of still doesn’t work now. But once you accept that this sketch is so awful that it’s good, you will NOT stop laughing!
We don’t want to give away too much but essentially, Sudeikis gets set up on a blind date with a girl named Jennjamin Franklin, who happens to look exactly like her name would suggest - a female Benjamin Franklin!
You can watch the second attempt at the once cut sketch AND Will Forte’s interview with Seth…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
