Maybe instead of weekly, the show should move to a single show per month format
17 October 2016 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I understand that having to write good comedy material each week and have their entire TV audience both relate to the material and keep it topical is no easy task, but for SNL to gain the varied audience it once boasted then the SNL writers have to do a better job of making the material much more entertaining.

This weeks episode spent far too much time trying to belittle the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump less than one month before the U.S. November 08, 2016 election. I thought I tuned in to watch a TV comedy show and not another Donald Trump bashing. I checked the TV channel I was watching because I could have sworn it was CNN (the Clinton News Network) I was watching and not NBC. Listen SNL writers, if you have no imagination on how to write comedy on Hillary Clinton to balance the shows coverage of the two candidates in satire then give me a shout because there is no end to 30 years of political satire relating to the Clinton's. Come on now!

One other skit that I thought was appropriate was the skit where the theatre group who just completed their stage performance reached out to their stage audience and asked for feedback after their performance from the single person watching their live performance. The writers must have written it subconsciously as I believe I was the only person watching the show this past Saturday night as everyone else had already realized that the skits are just not funny anymore.

As SNL is in its 42nd year and I have been watching it since the very first episode I have faith that SNL still has life left in it. Unfortunately episode 3 of Season 42 sucked not a single ounce of laughter out of me. Fire the writers because the cast is not the problem and get back to at least some level of the original physical comedy that made me laugh at SNL weekly. Otherwise maybe SNL should consider moving to a once per month format and allowing only the decent skits to go forward on live TV.
