Jason Sudeikis said goodbye to his interpretation of Mitt Romney on Saturday night. He seems to have a renewed energy that he was missing the last two seasons. It's a shame that this will be his last.

Only nine segments aired on the Louis C.K.-hosted "Saturday Night Live." What's even more remarkable is that a grand total of five sketches were killed after dress rehearsal.

Aidy Bryant had a much better week than the previous two. But, still relegated to just a couple of backup roles. I am going to make a bold predictions by stating that, next week, Aidy Bryant will be nowhere near 14th on this list.

The airtime wealth was spread around so much in Week 2 (well, except for Aidy Bryant who, two weeks in, has still only had one short scene) that there wasn't a clear, dominating cast member. Which, yes, is refreshing.

There was no real clear winner this week when you factor in just how much airtime Eli Manning received. So, how about a bold winner in honor of a bold sketch?

I get the sense that Jason Sudeikis is just in his own little world on the show these days. Like in a, "Hey, Jason, after Romney, you've got nothing until 'Bongo's Clown Room.' Do you want to be in any other sketches?" "Nah, I'm good," kind of way.

Over the life of this here Relevancy Poll, no week has been harder to rank than Jimmy Fallon's show from this past weekend. With a show that featured not just Fallon, but Tracy Morgan, Chris Kattan, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Hartio Sanz and Amy Poehler - yeah, we're basically dealing with 21 cast members fighting for airtime. So take this week with a grain of salt because, really, nobody had a great week. Well, actually, I can make the case for one cast member:
