Last night on 'Late Night,' Amy Poehler dropped in for a revival of Really!?! with Seth & Amy.

The purpose of the SNL reunion was to make fun of Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit, who dumbly tweeted (then deleted, then apologized) that women's sports are "not worth watching." I don't have anything to say about this that couldn't be said better by my President, Amy Poehler. Here's her message to the networks about not broadcasting women's events:

You'll play 6 hours of pre-Kentucky Derby footage but you can't broadcast women's soccer? You think people would rather watch someone talk about hats than watch some badass American bitches take down Colombia?

Hopefully this is part of a larger takeover that starts with Poehler making appearances on the show from time to time, then slowly ramps up to a point when all networks just broadcast The Amy Poehler Show all day. Because don't you sometimes feel like television is too dominated by people who aren't Amy Poehler?
