  • Summary
    "Saturday Night Live" returns early for its thirty-fourth season, raring to make up for time lost during last season's Writer's Strike with a string of performances that include an Election year special and mini-broadcasts on Thursday nights. Assisting in the election year humor were frequent guest appearances by former cast members Tina Fey and Will Ferrell as Republican running mate Gov. Sarah Palin and soon-to-be ex-President George W. Bush. The real Palin would also make a guest appearance as herself, as would Sen. John McCain in a separate episode. Cast member Amy Poehler went on temporary hiatus due to maternity leave, and then left "SNL" altogether midseason to star in her own prime-time sitcom, "Parks and Recreation", by the Spring. For the first time since Colin Quinn hlemed the anchorman chair, "Weekend Update" would return to its roots as a solo anchor gig, now performed exclusively by long-time cast member and current Head Writer Seth Meyers. Although it has yet to be stated officially, speculation is that Darrell Hammond has finally retired from "SNL"'s cast after a record-breaking fourteen seasons.
