    NBC's Saturday Night Live received considerable flack this fall when its new class of comedians looked more like a good old boys club than a melting pot. Of the six new players added to the cast, all are white and just one is a woman. The homogeneous casting choices brought to light SNL's abysmal diversity track record. The show hasn't cast a black female in six years. In fact, in the show's 38-year history, only four black female comedians have been part of the cast.
