Trivia

Norm MacDonald was removed from Weekend Update in the middle of the 1997-1998 season at the insistence of NBC Executive Don Ohlmeyer, who said MacDonald was "not funny". MacDonald left the show at the end of the season. Rumors spread that Ohlmeyer did not like MacDonald's jokes about O.J. Simpson, who was a friend of Ohlmeyer's. But MacDonald has stated that he does not believe that was the reason he was fired. See more »

Enough already.
3 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

In the entire history of this show they have never had a host that I wanted to see.There have probably been only two or three that I have ever seen anywhere else.Watching a person I have never seen before singing an unfunny song got old years ago but they still do it every week.They have had two bands that I liked and one of them (Fear) was never shown in any repeats.It seems like they only have bands that small children listen to, which is very weird for a show that's on so late.But the show isn't supposed to be about the hosts or bands, it's supposed to be about comedy and there's very little of that.I can't remember the last time this show made me laugh.However I can remember what I see and this week they had the nerve to replay a fake commercial.Have they finally realized they have no real content and are just giving up?I watch every week hoping it might be funny and it never is.But what would you expect from a show that fired Norm Macdonald and David Koechner?It's very clear that they don't even know what comedy is anymore.
