Not your father's SNL...
2 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Started watching the new season this past Saturday. They need to rename this show "One Trick Pony." It's just getting old and stale. There is always some humor in politics but this show now just goes way overboard. Some of us actually just turn on the TV to be entertained. Hopefully, at some point, they realize they are either ignoring or insulting half of their potential audience (but I doubt it)...
