Mornin', Miami!

Did you party too hard at III Points this weekend? Drink your sorrows away after the Dolphins' loss yesterday? Or do you just hate mornings?

If you're dragging this a.m., then congratulations -- you have something in common with Miley Cyrus. On Saturday Night Live last weekend, Cyrus and cast members Kate McKinnon and Bobby Moynihan played the hosts of fictional Miami morning show Mornin' Miami. But when the cameras stop rolling, it's clear that the three hate each other, their jobs, and life in general.

The sketch was just one of several that fell flat last night in an episode of SNL that was especially disappointing after Tina Fey's appearance last week. (If you haven't yet seen her Girls spoof, get on that already.) Not that most people had high hopes for Cyrus, who's been riding high on a wave of public disgust since her performance at the VMAs.

On the upside, though, at least this sketch didn't turn Miami into one giant, coked out, Latin-accented stereotype. Way to, uh, show restraint?
