    I'm not expecting much. The host is Margot Robbie (hot, yes), with musical guest The Weeknd (who?).

    One sketch to expect, probably right at the beginning, is their take on the Trump/Clinton debate. Alec Baldwin is scheduled to appear as Trump, and will be playing Trump for the foreseeable future (at least through the election). I'm sure with Alec as a real-life hardcore Liberal, he will do everything to make his version of Trump a complete douche.

    I'm sure it will be a show packed with no laughs. Reply/respond if you choose to say up and watch

    The show is true shit. Why it is still on is beyond me.

    I'm predicting a media uproar tomorrow about how funny and edgy the debate skit is!

    That is so funny! Did you think of that yourself? You should consider a career in comedy writing

    They got rid of the two talented guys on the show. Lorne Michaels said it is part of the show to move old talent out and bring in new. Yet Kenan Thompson can be there for 10 years and its no big deal. I don't know why they kept Leslie Jones. She is one dimensional and not a utility player. This could be one of the worst seasons ever coming up. Also, Weekend Update is unwatchable at this point. It really makes you miss Norm and even Seth Myers.

    Wonder if they use this chance to shoehorn Tina fey's Sarah Palin in?

    Remember when SNL had regular staff members do the impressions/ characterS?

    No one will ever be better than Norm on the Weekend Update segment

    The opening will feature a cameo or two, perhaps a former cast member. A minute or two into it, it will stop being funny and the awkwardness will end with the words 'live from NY, it's Saturday Night.'

    Keenan Thompson will appear in a skit as a lovable, yet quirky old black man

    Leslie Jones will be in at least half of the skits including one poking fun of her 'harassment ' At no point will she be even remotely funny.

    A couple of the skits will begin with a potentially amusing premise, but will completely lack any kind of direction. They'll eventually run longer than they should, and rather than end with some kind of payoff, they'll just fade the cameras out and go to commercials

    The musical act will be someone I've sort of heard of but won't really know or care about

    The news will have a couple of decent jokes, and we'll know they're funny because the guys delivering them will also be laughing.

    That should about sum it up. Feel free to save this post and use it again next year at this time.

    I bet we'll even get to see the great Lorne Michaels show up on-camera, at some point. It's always such a treat when this happens,
    as he is such a genius.....or at least, that's what he wants us to believe. :c

    Leslie jones is an affirmative action hire. Once they find another black female who is better, she will be out. They are probably hoping she leaves for sitcom or movie career

    Hasn't been record worthy for years. SNL lost its edge and went too PC.

    You could never do Mr. Robinson's neighborhood these days.
