  • They're leaving the funny out of funny...

    3.0
    While this show still manages to pull me in to watch it's usually a day or two later now on Hulu. Still a few "okay" spots here and there, but for the most part the show has gone beyond flat! Just one example is Weekend Round Up? Michael Che's smug, angry black-man demeanor and Colin Jost's constantly on verge of laughing out laugh approach is transparent, outdated and insulting. Dump Che (from Weekend Round Up) now and give Jost three more episodes to stop doing Seth Meyers' "I will not laugh out loud, I will not laugh out loud, I will not laugh out loud, giggle fit character".moreless
  • Time For REAL reboot

    3.0
    A few moments such as "Help Fund" and Kristen's Kathy Lee deconstruction glimmered, but it's time for a big change which apparently mean finding a truly funny ensemble, maybe composed of fewer actors/actresses, but fresh and truly gifted comedically. I'm thinking everything from the set to the format, which hasn't changed in, well, hasn't ever changed. Maybe it should be a weekend review of things that speak to many of us. That could be lampooning current events as well as sports, culture, business, and music. Time for a big change, front to back, top to bottom.moreless

    Saturday Night Live we have a Problem and not even NASA can save them. Who the hell are the writers I say we get Queen of Hearts and say Off with their heads. Thumbs are whatever they use to type this with. This is bogus journey see bill and ted minus excellent adventure. To enjoy this show you would have the . mayo left in the sun for 5 days that has hair on it.moreless
  • Seriously????

    1.0
    What happened to SNL???? I think they forgot how to be funny. All the writers should be fired and they should start from scratch. They used to push the best comedians in the industry but all they do know is make the comedians fail. Get new writers and become funny again
  • Where did the brilliant writers go to?

    1.0
    Can't remember a worse episode than last Saturday's S40E01. The writers (probably new ones) are mistaking vulgarity for wit. The acting talent is there but they are being given spam for lines in trashy skits. Sasheer Zamata is clearly highly talented and is being wasted in small roles. Come on Loren... kick some ass and get the good writers back.
  • JOHN WATSON/LESTER NYGAARD FTW
