Poll: Today's Live Poll
  • It's a well written piece, but it's simply that author saying he doesn't like it anymore. He, in fact, cites things gone that I didn't lament for one bit. Nobody was happier to see Chris Kattan, Molly Shannon or Cheri Oteri leave than I was. The show evolves. It ebbs and flows. The trimming of the cast was probably necessary, but a bit too much -- there was no reason to lose Chris Parnell. As it has been over recent years, it's hit or miss on any given week. There have been great weeks, like with Hugh Laurie and Peyton Manning, and not-so-great weeks -- Forrest Whitaker comes to mind. But if SNL went away every time an article like this was written, it wouldn't have seen it's fifth season, let alone 35th. I'm not sure why authors like this complain -- do they believe something better is going to come take its place? They're woefully mistaken if that's the belief. It's not eating up valuable prime time real estate, and it's an institution. Let it go through the occasional growing pains and you'll find it always finds its way back to its core competency.

  • I agree. It's way overdue and doesn't even come remotely close to the glory days of SNL. Bulushi, Akroid, Martin, Murphy, Candy, etc... WE MISS YOU!
