Episode Notes
Kenan Thompson does not appear in any live sketches. Thompson does appear in the SNL Digital Short, "The Cookie Eating Staff Member".

Shortly after this broadcast, New York governor David Paterson openly complained of Fred Armisen's portrayal of him on Weekend Update, stating that his impression was insensitive to the blind and visually impaired.

This is Amy Poehler's final show.
