Saturday Night Live has welcomed funny lady Kate McKinnon to their TV family.

The Upright Citizens Brigade performer is most famous for her characters on LOGO's Big Gay Sketch Show, which ended its three-season run in 2010. She has also worked as a voice actress on The Venture Brothers and Robotomy.

While some are lamenting that McKinnon is not the black female performer the sketch show needs, After Ellen points out that she will be the first out lesbian castmate on SNL.

Many are also wondering what the new hire means for Kristen Wiig, whose contract expires after this season. Wiig, after proving herself with 2011's Bridesmaids, may choose to pursue bigger and better things after this season.
