  2. Man, I’m surprised by all the Norm fans. He’s the reason I changed the channel when Weekend Update came on. I didn’t tune back in until Jimmy and Tina took over.

  3. I don’t mind dry humor, but Norm didn’t belong on Weekend Update. The segment is fast paced with lots of jokes, so 1 person with dry delivery gets tiresome. Your choice of Tina & Amy for the #1 slot makes it seem like you chose 2 recent comedians over older but better individual performers.
