    This is incredible! So impressive. And Kate slays all of her characters, Shud is by far one of my favorites.

    Wow. I didn't even care for the Shud sketch that much, but this has given me newfound respect. Props to everyone who made that quick turnaround possible and to Kate whom I didn't even realize was "Shud".

    The whole time watching SNL that weekend, i thought that it was the best SNL as a whole in a LONG time. Theeeeen, via ScarJo's words, it comes to find out that the women didn't write much because of the whole women's day thing on Wednesday. Ironic. Either there's some ladies that are dragging the writing down, or men who haven't been able to write many skits....or it was just a pure miracle that the best overall happened the same week as the women's thing.
