It was reported last week that SNL will be adding a Black woman to its cast. The show has held two showcase auditions of all African-American women this month and is looking to add one as soon as this January. While a more diverse cast is definitely needed, we also just want the show to be funny again. We're curious to know if the addition of one Black female comedian will be enough to turn the show and its ratings around. 

How many of you actually still watch SNL? Is the addition of a Black woman enough to make you start?
