Kate McKinnon: Nice job on 'Saturday Night Live'
Kate McKinnon, LI's own (she's from Sea Cliff), is getting some deserved online love for her debut on "SNL" this past weekend, and she got same in print via Newsday's critic; this really was a very assured start for the newcomer. "SNL" hasn't officially announced her as a player just yet, but I'm guessing that's either a formality or pending tryouts of a couple other comics. Who knows! Only the great god of "SNL" -- his highness Lorne -- does and he's not telling anyone just yet. But my hunch is that he was also very pleased with what he saw. Don't forget: Kristen Wiig will probably leave at the end of this season, and when she does, new talent must be aboard.
Here's the Pantene sketch, on the off-chance if you haven't yet seen.
