Hope For SNL Lies With A Pharaoh

Now, honestly - if you added up all of the talent of the current SNL cast, would it even come close to Eddie Murphy in his prime? Go ahead, add it all up - not even close.

Too bad that it's quite a shame that Eddie is only a shadow of his former self. Outside of Shrek and a few fart jokes in The Nutty Professor, I'm not sure he'd make the current lineup. Regardless, he's not as funny now as he was in that clip.

But there could be some good news for the late-night weekend variety show. Meet Jay Pharaoh. Seems that Lorne is reaching back about 25 years to what was a good idea...

Sometimes it's just best to go with the formulas that you know work.
