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.

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.
