Storyline

A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band, and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Manic Depressive?
17 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's imagine we're discussing Bipolar disorder or manic depressive behavior. With this disorder, individuals go through cycles of being manic sometimes, depressed other times, and somewhere in between the rest of the time. But instead, let's say manic represents funny and depressive represents not funny and in between is, well, in between. That sums up Saturday Night Live pretty well. Sometimes funny, sometimes not, and usually in between. It does have its moments and, quite often, a good guest host makes a big difference. Justin Timberlake comes to mind. Many times, I admit, I don't make it past midnight because I figure if they haven't come up with 5-10 minutes of funny by then, I give up! I might also point out that most of the time, "Saturday Night Rerun" would be a more fitting title but I'll save that for another time. Oops! Too late! Oh, well, maybe that's why now they prefer the title SNL.
