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>

Last Night With Matt Damon Was Tragic, Sad, And Not Funny Even Once
17 December 2018 | by jomots243See all my reviews

What's happened to this show? They would rather sacrifice the show, at the alter liberalism, never being funny, but always partisan, and lose the show and their jobs altogether, than to be fair and honest, and actually funny, and keep the show and their jobs?

Ugggggg! Time to end this pathetic attempt at comedy....

SNL is lost to time, and it's jjst not funny anymore. At all....!
