  • Good foTrump

    Trump was good, but SNL has really deteriorated since it began. It is not as funny. The bit when the black woman was making remarks about body parts was disgusting and vulgar.
  • We like Trump

    Please do not submit to the bullies who think it is acceptable to stifle free speech.

    We - for being republican, for expecting laws to be respected, and for speaking freely about serious political issues - are called racist by these aggressive wanna-be tyrants; and we are are sick of being stifled. We have a right to be heard. for you to let them bully you into removing Trump from your program would be nothing short of a groveling submission to tyranny. Don't do it. Keep Trump.moreless
  • A night with the Zombies!

    In its forty-first year, SNL is really showing its age. And it is not aging well! It seems as though the really creative types have abandoned the show for less-restrictive pastures. And miring the show in predictable layers of political correctness keeps the subject matter directed into a boring, would-be-approved-by-the-Bolsheviks format. Whatever happened to the serendipitous irreverence that made SNL somewhat of a comedic legend? And a fifty minute show stretched into ninety minutes by padding the thing with forty minutes of commercials makes the experience a tiring, devoid of humor, almost annoying grind. Host, Miley Cyrus was apparently chosen for her reputation of someone unpredictable, but last night, she was rather wooden, uninspired, and lacking in entertainment value. Apparently, her fifteen minutes of fame has already passed. If last night's performance is any indication of her future, RIP her career. And while I understand that we are moving into an election period, being constantly bombarded with the message that any candidate who is not Hillary Clinton is ridiculous got tiring after multiple variations. Neither the cast, writers, or aged format give any compelling reason for the continuation of the show, which has now come full circle into fulfilling is old (but then incorrect) claim of not being ready for prime time - or now, any other time. Everything has a beginning and ending. And if it's time to go, better go with grace sooner than sticking around too long for a cancellation!moreless
  • SNL has become a Politically Correct platform for Social Justice Warriors - Unfunny and uninspired

    Watching the April 11th show was a painful exercise in Politically Correct humor - if the humour wasn't about Feminism or LGBT issues, it was all about the race, the race with no humor. It was like a group of first year liberal arts college students took over the show at the expense of all that is funny.

    Previously complaints were lodged about the lack of black performers. Now there are 5 black cast members and the host Taraji P. Henson was also Afro American. I have no issue with this but almost every joke and skit was about being black and how white people are bad. It was unrelenting and more importantly, it just wasn't funny.

    Opening Hillary Skit: Bill Clinton mentions how he will be "bigger and blacker"

    Taraji P. Henson monologue: Describes how white people finally know who she is - performance turns into a black gospel rave up

    Depends Commercial: Making fun of old white men

    Home 2 Preview - Hip Hop/Rap Voice Actors - all black

    Game of Thrones - South Central kingdom added - all black

    Weekend Update: 5 News Items about black/white race relations

    Hollywood Game Night: Rapper "Common" talks about black struggle - "Wanda Sykes" complains about the white host.

    How 2 Dance with Janelle: Black host makes fun of how white people can't dance.

    Sesame Street: "Cookie" black woman keeps it real with characters and turns Elmo into a fur coat (this skit was pretty funny).

    Cinema Classics: Black woman attempts to join white woman baseball team.

    Connectatron: Mavis black woman with attitude takes overmoreless
  • Too Far

    I just turned off SNL for the first time in my life. Your cold-hearted, humorized account of 150 passengers on a plane being murdered by a suicidal pilot is just too much. It's just too much for me to accept that you would wish to poke fun (fun) of families who are without multiple members due to the mental illness of another. How can you make light of this? You are all callus.moreless
