The season premiere was so bad that either this is the last season or the show is supported by brain-dead drug addicts.
Opening sketch about Obamacare was mostly boring political stuff we read every day with little comedy.
The live music act went on interminably and like most of the other segments had people playing or mugging for the camera.
Used car ad was lame. "The Girls" was spoiled by canned laughter and loud background music. Or maybe those who couldn't make out the dialogue were spared having to hear it.
Drunk Uncle is pathetic and for the newscaster to be laughing and enamored with every word shows how far SNL has slipped from the days of Chevy Chase. This part should be given to Beck Bennett
who is great at dead-pan as in his AT&T commercials.
Newcomers were lost in the sheer number of cast members.
Ex-pornstar skit was basically one joke over and over. Tina Fey being carried across camera 3 times
saying "who let the dogs out" was about as pathetic and unfunny as you can get.
I'd give this show an "F" but I did laugh 2 or 3 time over the 90 minutes and slept better from boredom.
So I give it "D" for dull and in recognition of the drowsiness it engendered.
