SNL opened the show last night without a sketch. Instead, a children’s choir sang “Silent Night” in tribute to the young victims of the Connecticut school shooting. It is beautiful. However, I am not sure you needed the kids to shout “Live From New York, It’s Saturday Night.” Producers should have just faded to black then started the open. Some people say the show should have been postponed. I think about those children every time my 5-year-old walks into a room. I think we needed a laugh, to take our minds off the horror at Sandy Hook Elementary.
