Last night's return episode of SNL featured the newest cast member, totally normal regular everyday SNL hire Sasheer Zamata, formerly of the Upright Citizens Brigade. As with all brand new cast members who might not be prepared not to say "fuck" on live television, Zamata played a limited role on the show, her most notable appearance, according to the Associated Press, being the Rihanna impression she did during a — wait for it — BET sketch. To be honest, though, an early 90s reboot of Blossom based in Barbados sounds pretty Netflix-worthy.
Limited role? Most feature players are lucky to get in the background of a sketch or two a show their first season. She was up front in at least 4, and did totally fine. She didn't steal the show but she certainly held own - all you could really hope for and expect from her first show. I don't quite understand what Jezebel wants from SNL and from Sasheer at this point. The passive aggressive non-congratulations in this post is confusing.
