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>

A noble effort, but...
18 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SNL hasn't been consistently funny for about 20 years or so. Of course the show will be occasionally funny - it happens, but not often enough. Loren Michaels tends to choose cast members who look like successful cast members from the past (anyone else notice?), trading off players' physical appearance for talent. He also has a policy of promoting writers from within who are just not able to carry the show. I'm talking about the Luke-warm comedy of Seth Meyers. Weekend Update is only mildly amusing on a good night. With the phenomenal talent pools in New York, Chicago, Toronto, and LA, Michaels could put together blockbuster ensembles, but that won't happen. Why? You'll have to ask Dr. Evil himself for the answer to that question.
