The Return of Carvey

Dana Carvey's return to SNL was somewhat successful Saturday, even though Carvey and Mike Myers, who are both in their late 50s, are a bit too old to still be playing teenagers, and "Wayne's World" was a lot funnier when I was 12 than it is now. The Church Lady bit was funny though, and good to see Dana drag his Mickey Rooney impression out of the mothballs.

I just don't see why Carvey didn't have a better career, the botched heart surgery notwithstanding. So Dana starred in three bad movies- Adam Sandler has starred in like 20 of them.

At this point, Jay Pharoah and Paul Brittain are the future of the show, and once they mature, SNL will be fine.
