"NEXT!!"
December 8, 2013  | By Eric Gould
 
Taran Killam returned this weekend as snarky 19th Century newspaper critic Jebidiah Atkinson who hates everything good. The Atkinson character made his SNL debut three weeks ago defending his scorching 1863 review of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and this week set his sights on favorite holiday specials and movies. Standards like Frosty the Snowman and A Charlie Brown Christmas fared no better than Lincoln’s speech. Atkinson’s snub of Snoopy (“Family Guy killed the wrong dog!!”) got a huge rise out of the live audience. Looks like we have our next fave Weekend Update character since “Stefon”. –EG
