  • episode numbering is wrong

    episode numbering is wrong, numbered garfields episode as 20 and its the 19th
  • Horrible

    Each season gets worse than the next. I continue to watch but I don't know why. I FF through most shows without so much as a giggle. Just sad. I don't think the actors are so bad, it's the writers. No vision, no talent. Fire them all. I don't want to give a 1 but I can't choose ZERO.
  • Isn't this show supposed to be LIVE?

    I have religiously watched this show for 25 years. While I am a fan of the digital shorts and cartoons in the past, I have noticed that this season there is an increased amount of pre-taped skits or shorts. Last week they had a great host with Anna Kendrick and they chose to do multiple taped shorts. The show is supposed to be live and I feel they are taking too many liberties with these STUPID shorts. They aren't even funny. Disappointed and I hope they fix this because the charm of this show is the live, unexpected and funny moments.moreless
  • Such bad writing.

    Horrible writing with Good list of characters and actors . It could be fixed. Fire the Writers! Low brow without an attempt to go political lacking any sophistication to pull it off. It seems written by a bunch of 20 year old kids.
