Let the judging begin…Here are some clips from the upcoming season :
WHAT HAPPENED TO SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE?
Over 40 years….if a show has been on for over 40 years it has to be great right? Some may think so, others don’t.
Let me start off by saying this is my opinion. You may feel different and that’s fine. We all have our opinions and different tastes when it comes to everything in life.
My very first SNL that I watched was back in the early 90s. Michael Jordan was the host. It was the season premiere. I thought it was a great show. Granted I was in my early teenage years and I didn’t understand every sketch, but I knew funny when I saw it. I was hooked. I loved most of the cast. Back then the cast consisted of Dana Carvey, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, David Spade, Mike Myers Chris Rock and more. It was called the stand up comedian era of SNL. There were some people on the cast list that weren’t funny as well but for the most part we knew the formula…the first hour was great, the last half hour….not so much. But in general, it made me wish I had started watching it sooner. Thankfully, today we live in a world where we have thr SNL app where we can just watch almost every sketch from season 1-today but back then the only shot I had was hopefully catching an old re run.
The next couple of years were filled with laughs until and like I said, this is my opinion, but things changed. Most of that cast left….a new group of the not ready for prime time players joined the cast, and it just wasn’t funny anymore. Adam Sandler was gone, so was Chris Farley. Phil Hartman, who in my opinion, was one of the greatest talents to come out of SNL (R.I.P.) had moved on to news radio. We got guys like Jimmy Fallon, Will Farrell, Chris Kattan and Cheriton O’Teri. The only sketch I found funny was of course Celebrity Jeopardy and it wasn’t because of Willis awesome impression of Alex Trebek…it was everyone else, especially Daryll Hammond doing Sean Connery. The recurring sketches of Mr. Peepers, the Spartan cheerleaders, the lady that’s on almost every drug imagined, just weren’t funny to me. As the weeks went by, I was barely laughing and in fact, getting more frustrated. It came to the point that when 11:30pm came on a Saturday, I let it go and NBC wasn’t my dial of choice. I just stopped watching altogether…..for years.
I started watching again a few years ago and what I came back to, I didn’t like. In my opinion, the show is just as unfunny now as it was when I left it. There are some cast members that can be funny, but the writers have no idea how to write a funny sketch. A lot of the cast members do write their own material for the show, but from what I’ve read from previous cast members, if you can’t write, then you have to really suck up to the writers in order for you to have a sketch where you’re not just in the background.
How is this show still on the air? You have guys like Kenan Thompson that hasn’t gotten a laugh from me in the 142 years he’s been on the show. You have talented people like Jay Pharoah, Kate McKinnon and Bobby Moynihan but the writers have no idea how to cater to their strengths. Instead, the writers feel that making weird faces is the key to getting a laugh.
One of the key sketches since the beginning of SNL has always been weekend update. What makes Weekend Update are the anchors…and here’s another point where it went south lately. As much as I can’t stand Chevy Chase, he put SNL on the map and that includes Weekend Update…fast forward to the 80s and 90s with guys like Dennis Miller, Kevin Nealon and Norm…they all used a little but of themselves and their comedy act to make it funny…even Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey had chemistry to make it entertaining. Then we get Seth Meyers…yes, he has his own late night show, but honestly, I thinks it’s just as funny as his weekend update sketch. ..which is to say, not funny at all. There have been plenty of shows I’ve seen where he barely got a laugh from the audience…even when he would just stare an extra second to try and get a laugh. It just wasn’t funny. Now we have Colin Jose and Michael Che. …now I like Che, but I’m not that big of a fan of Colin, but I have to give him some credit because they’re starting to catch their groove together. They seem more comfortable together now than they did last year.
The bottom line is that in my opinion, SNL hasn’t been funny on a regular basis in over 15 years. You might disagree, or you might agree. Either way, it’s your opinion just like this article is strictly mine. SNL needs an overhaul with hiring new writers and hiring an almost entirely new cast. It’ll never happen, but SNL was funny consistently at 1 time..I think it can be again, if they make some big changes.
