Kerry Washington's appearance on last week's Saturday Night Live was a triumph, but it also illustrated just how wrong Kenan Thompson was (while poking fun) when he said the producers could not find African-American women who are ready to be Not Ready for Prime Time. Granted, Washington is a known talent, but this excuse just seems like a subset of that old comedy bro standard, "women just aren't funny." Elise Crane Derby, Anne Louise Bannon and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about this and other TV news on this week's Agents of Zeitgeist podcast, produced by Engender Media Group.
