    Do people think that boycotting Trump on SNL will actually work?

    Pretty much anything the last few years people try to ban or boycott ends in a complete failure.

    Trying to ban guns after Sandy Hook just gave the gun industry a massive boost
    Trying to ban Duck Dynasty backfired and sales of the merch exploded
    Telling many people in parts (not everywhere) of California that they needed to ration water just made them use more

    When are people going to realize this shit makes it worse??

    In unrelated news,

    We gotta show that Tarantino and stand with the cops! We'll get that Hateful Eight weekend gross down to 99.9 mil instead of triple digits.

    BOYCOTT QUENTIN.

    Boycotts worked in the 50's. They don't work now.

    Anthony Cumia is really hurting at this point now that he has his own network and brand of shows. They really showed him by letting him go!

    You might be right in terms of if the point was removing it at Government buildings. Not sure about sales of the Flags. I would suspect small sellers of the flags are booming though. Not certain.

    How do you boycott a show with no viewers?

    it's an odd idea to me
    boycotting a tv show

    I think that it's just I don't watch this because it's not my cup of tea
    I wouldn't call that a boycott


    i'm probably putting too much thought into this

    I've been boycotting or not watching SNL for over 10 years and it has nothing to do with Trump.

    It's been the best cast in a long time. But that's just me. I'm a 16 year old chick :confused:

    Nora Dunn got canned from SNL for boycotting his appearance, but it provided momentum for protesters and negative coverage of his paid shows.

    Trump is appearing on a TV show. Most everyone these days has digital cable or something that can be measured. Getting a TV viewer to click is easy compared to ticket sales at an arena.

    Trump Wins.

    Jamie Foxx's appearance on the show was one of the most racist shows I have ever watched. Practically every joke/sketch was about evil YT. For the millionth time, if the shit had been in reverse, "future college students" would have probably burned the studio to the ground.

    Boycott SNL all you want, dipshits. No one GAS or GAF

    If we boycotted every thing or person who is offensive, we would be naked, starving and homeless

    Unless you're a Nielson home counted in the ratings, I fail to see how it matters re Trump on SNL

    However, if you don't drop $30 on a pair of tickets to a Tarantino film, it makes an impact.
