I actually thought it was a funny SNL. There were some skits that fell flat, but I couldn't stop laughing during the Broadway skit and the digital short.

Heh. That was actually the second look at Reaper's season two. There was a short scene in the CW's Winter 2009 promo. We've also got some set pics too.
