User Reviews

Its down but not out

Right now this show is in a transitional phase. The cast is very average (aside from Fallon and Hammond) and it might be time for Daddy Lorne to blow it up and start again. In my opinion no one is more annoying than Rachel Dratch! The fact that she was in five sketches and Fallon in one(excluding WU) the other night speaks volumes of the shows mediocrity. However, to those that say it'll never come back let me say you're mistaken. SNL has always rebounded from it's down years and it will continue to do so.
