Reviewing a show that has lasted this long is difficult.

This show has been hilarious and it has been terrible. It had many seasons no one believed it would actually be renewed after. And it's brought us some of the funniest comics and comedy writers working in TV and movies. And some of the worst.

No one really agrees on what were the funniest moments, seasons or casts. And that may be the true brilliance of this show. The thing that makes it uncancellable. If you wait a season or two you will find something you like.

I used to love it. Then, it sucked and I forgot about it. Then, my writing partner told me to give it a chance, that I had missed years of good comedy. So, I walked it back. I found a new appreciation. Good new comedians. Pump yo brakes, dude. Became a fan. Then, without warning, it started to tank. Allowing Trump on the show in 2015 was the last gasp. Giving it a 2-star rating is too kind, but I gave it 2 stars. And, am giving it a couple seasons to restart. For now, my DVR is free of bothering record it. Buh bye, SNL.

This was the show that my parents would let me stay up late and watch on rare Saturdays in my early teens. I'm 40 now, so this has got to be the longest I've ever watched a show.
Don't think that means I think it is amazingly funny and totally worth it... I don't. I watch it partly due to habit and partly because I'm afraid I'll miss a funny episode or skit. One out of every 9 or 10 episodes is funny and the same ratio is true for every skit, so I just play this show back on Sundays when I am doing my household chores. This is definitely a show that you need to multitask with.
