Target Lady’s back, and she’s as enthusiastic and weird as ever! Granted, it’s only been a year since Wiig left the show, so it did feel a bit soon for so much nostalgia. But it’s important to move past that, because it’s Kristen Wiig! In this sketch, the former cast member brought the usual Target Lady shtick, the usual accent, the usual arm gestures — but the writers did give her some great new lines. “Take your cash jar and get the eff out of here. I’m on the clock and ready to rock!” she says, followed by plenty of shimmying. And later, “I have every issue of Sassy magazine. I like to cut out the models’ eyes and put them on my eyelids so when I’m asleep my birds never feel alone and the ghosts think I’m awake.” Welcome back, Ms. Wiig.
The Target Lady always made me laugh when Kristen Wiig was on the show. It was nice to see her back with all the cast members, as well as Maya Rudolph. I sure hope to see Wiig hosting again soon. I was working late at DISH the other night, so I set up my DVR to record SNL. I usually catch up on my TV shows while I’m cleaning the house, and having the ability to pause them in the kitchen, and then continue in the living room with my DISH Hopper helps me stay productive.
