  • Can't view anything

    I can't get on to anything on SNL I'm sick of it...
  • Gets Repetitive

    5.0
    I used to enjoy watching SNL but I just got kind of tired of it the fact that most of the sketches are unfunny. And also the fact that the second you start to finally fall in love with an actor, they get rid of them, for new crappy actors.
  • episode numbering is wrong

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

    1.0
    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?

    1.0
    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
