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>

I miss the old SNL
9 October 2018 | by match-78045See all my reviews

Remember way back when SNL only dabbled in politics? It seems that they've adopted a formula of having a majority of their skits being political. I watch TV to escape politics, so it's no longer a good match for me.
