I just watched the tape of Saturday's SNL premier. I thought Michael Phelps did a pretty decent job, even if he did seem a little nervous. I LOVED the one about the "Michael Phelps Diet." Find it online if you didn't see it. I did think that the writing seems to be a little less than desirable... is it just me or is SNL not nearly as funny as it used to be? I was a little surprised to see the locker room skit, which was almost exactly the same as the one they had Peyton Manning do last year.
If you don't see anything else from the episode (that overall I give a 4 out of 5), watch the above clip of the cold open. Tina Fey came back to do an amazing impersonation of Sarah Palin. I think it's worth noting that the ONLY time Obama's name is mentioned in the entire episode (that I caught anyways) is in this skit.
