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>

Missed some can't-miss prospects
17 May 2000 | by (Parts Unknown) – See all my reviews

Everyone has said how great or bad this show is and how much worse it has gotten in the past few years, and I agree to some extent with everything. I just wanted to point out a few people who have been misused. They are mostly in the last decade, as earlier generations seemingly had much fewer cast members to waste.

McKinney, Walls, Kightlinger, Mohr, Fallon and others could have been a lot more famous than they are now if SNL used them as more than just extras. Even Chris Rock was hardly used except when the script called for a black man. McKinney had already proved himself on Kids in the Hall, so it would be easy for SNL to transfer some of that shows fanbase to them if only they utilized Mark's talent. Maybe it was their own fault for not being able to come up with usable characters. But SNL really missed out on some of those.
