Saturday night live justin timberlake dating game show
This season is notable for its take on the 2008 presidential election, which saw the show's ratings rapidly increase and a number of award nominations.
This season consisted of 22 episodes rather than the usual 20, in an attempt to compensate for episodes lost during the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike.
Before the start of the season the cast remained mostly unchanged except for the addition of Bobby Moynihan.
The season premiere date of September 13 was earlier than the premiere date for previous seasons, which typically have started during the final weekend of September or in early October.
Timberlake is in my opinion one of the best hosts of recent times (he has won two Emmys for his guest hosting appearances).
He hosts the show for a fifth time which lets him join the Five-Timers Club which was the monologue sketch which had previous hosts such as Candice Bergan and Tom Hanks as well as past cast members Dan Aykroyd and Martin Short working for this SNL history makers.
SNL received much media coverage for the show's take on the 2008 presidential election, causing ratings to increase rapidly.
The season premiere opened with Tina Fey playing Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin (alongside a pregnant Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton) in a "non-partisan message on sexism".
My least favourite sketch of the episode was the movie trailer they did because it seemed so cliché at the start and the conclusion was just not good and disappointing.
