'Weekend Update Thursday': Everything old is... still old

Posted on

Ruh-roh. Was there a single reference on last night’s Weekend Update Thursday that wasn’t weirdly dated? Dennis Franz and John Malkovich? Hall and Oates? (I’ll give that a pass for at least being funny.) Does anyone still care about Suze Orman? Even Maya Rudolph’s Oprah impression seemed crusty — “you get a (item)” jokes are still the best we can do? Yikes.

Weirdly, the Hall and Oates song does not appear to be online, which stinks, because it was hilarious and I wanted to post it.

What’d you think of last night’s episode, PopWatchers? Were you as disappointed as I was?
