    After getting thoroughly annoyed sitting through the Mets/Dodgers fiasco I needed to forget it and move on. Channel surfing I came upon SNL. They were doing the Weekend Update segment. I knew it was going to be bad but not this brutal. People actually think this stuff is funny? It's cringe-worthy. And the douches in the audience lapped it up. Just amazing.

    SNL hasn't been funny IMHO since the late 70s.

    all the media is. they rarely print anything abut billary. their plan is simple: the less we say and the less you know about this mafia criminal the better.
    Now lets print our 1000th Trump hit piece!

    yes, and the media is completely dumbfounded as to why their negative coverage hasn't been working. The rep establishment, being democrats, cant figure it our either :dontknow:

    SNL is like watching a comedy workshop. Technically what they are doing is comedy, but its rarely funny.

    Some skits are still pretty entertaining but it's usually more hit than miss. I like Drunk Uncle and usually the crazy eyes/dead eyed girls when they are together it's ok or somewhat funny. The first two times Larry did Bernie was good. Michael Che is Turrible on Weekend Update, the other dude I'm ok with (the fact that I can't name drop the cast might be telling). The black dude from Keenan and Kel I like.

    Their selection of musical guests used to be what drew me in, now it is what I fast forward thru the quickest.

    That's what I said earlier this week in another SNL post that turned into "the show hasn't been funny in years" "the show sucks" "that show is still on". I even said another thread about about SNL sucking will happen in another few days even though the season is over. It is a running joke at this point about how someone will start an SNL thread and the same stuff is said about it every time on weekly basis. http://www.dawgshed.com/threads/far...snl-season-finale.187766/page-2#post-11927059 http://www.dawgshed.com/threads/far...snl-season-finale.187766/page-2#post-11927059 http://www.dawgshed.com/threads/far...ights-snl-season-finale.187766/#post-11926184

    Benjy and Shuli couldn't do a shittier job.
    For a long time, I would just fast forward through the lame bits, to get to the Weekend Update and those very rare occasions that the musical guest didn't outright suck. I don't even do that anymore. They have the greatest material of all time to work with and it's still unwatchable. :facepalm:

    the answer is simple: multiple polling shows we're all sick of the assholes in congress, both parties.
    We're tired of being told we're racist, and bad people, and that America is bad.
    the truth is we have a great nation, a generous nation, and a huge potential for greatness, happiness, and prosperity. Trump is the only candidate voters see who can open that door.

    meanwhile billary promises to bring in 65,000 Syrians. :what:

    The only time I ever watch SNL is when a particular skit grows legs and becomes a 'thing', then I reluctantly watch it to see what all the fuss is about.

    I'm usually disappointed.

    The only thing that I've even remotely liked were a few skits with Larry David as Bernie Sanders.
