Rival to Saturday Night Live
27 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an after-prime time show produced by Rosanne Barr-Arnold in the mid-90s. Similar but inferior to SNL, it premiered on FOX at the time slot a half hour earlier than SNL, hoping to steal away some of their fans. SNS was a lesson in overkill. Each hour-long ep featured two guest hosts, two musical guests, fly girl-type dancers, Lollapalooza act Jim Rose and his human oddities, and on top of all that would be their version of SNL's "not ready for prime-time" comedy ensemble (actresses like Jennifer Coolidge and Kathy Griffin were featured players). The skits were barely equal to SNL's worst. There were a few good ones and the best were usually dominated by the guest stars like Ben Stiller and Ice T and Tupac Shakur. Rosanne and occasionally, John Goodman would make a few insignificant appearances each episode. On the positive side, the musical performances were always top shelf. D'Angelo, Coolio, Alice in Chains, Patti Smith, Radiohead, Tupac all performed on the show live and kicking better than a lot of SNL's recent safe and "family-friendly" music performances. The show would only last about six or more eps before it went was canceled, joining the graveyard of dozens of other late night comedy/variety shows that have taken on the "emperor of weekend late nite", Saturday Night Live, and lost.
