2 that pop into mind immediately are Michael Bolton singing about Jack Sparrow, and the Back to the Future auditions. They both better be there.

Kristian Wiig sucks, she isn't funny and has zero range

SNL has discovered and nurtured enough talent that it should be mandated that it stays on forever. Anyone who doesn't like the current cast simply hasn't watched or they hate all forms of change.

I always say I follow it like a sports team as opposed to watching it like a regular show. It's like being a fan of the Lions or something, but when they do good it's so worth it.

Also, the best sketch of the last 3 years was the Biden/Palin debate, so fark them for not having it on there.

It's criminal that Jay Pharoah is that low. He's almost only used for impressions, but he kills with those every chance he's given.

I mean, they have Kristen Wiig on constantly, and she basically does one character in every sketch, while desperately trying to hog attention away from anyone else on stage.

bglove25: I think I may be the only one, but I love the scarred straight skits.



the x factor for those is the guest host. you know what you're getting with the 3 "criminals" (hader, samberg, the other guy), the balck guy is a known quanity, sudeikis is a known quantity....the guest star is what makes or breaks the sketch.

when they're good, they can be laugh your farking balls off good. but when the guest host isn't really selling it, it comes off flat. and the thing is, unlike what up with that, or gay stefon, or fo rtha tmatter, any sketch, the writing isn't really the X factor, it is the performance. again, the sketch is paint-by-numbers. You know excatly what is going to happen.

taylor swift really sucked when she did it, i think betty white did it but i don't recall.....there have been a few where that sketch just kills and others where it is like, "ok, well, that was 5 minutes of no laughs, next sketch up!"

I think that it was said correctly. i remember SNL as being funnier in the past, but that's because I forget that 4 out of 5 skits are not funny. You're pretty much watching baseball. Lot's of strikeouts, ground outs, sometimes a base hit, and once or twice a night you get to see a homerun.

So, my memory of the past only recalls the great episodes. In my memory, old SNL is genius. But, I'm selectively forgetting that it also sucked most of the time, but for the couple of homeruns. And, nowadays, they still hit some homeruns... so, I guess it's not all that bad.

The only thing more sad and unfunny than SNL are its contingent of apologists.

Jimmy Fallon alone pretty much negates any contribution to society SNL has ever offered.
 
2011-09-06 07:10:49 PM  
See, I think that most of the bad sketches are do to the bad comic acting of the guest stars not the regular cast or writers. I still watch SNL because sometimes it is still very funny.
 
2011-09-06 07:10:55 PM  
Call me way too easy to amuse, but I have to say that I loved all the Underground Festival ads. Mrs. Potato Dick makes me laugh every time. Also, it was lacking severe Hamm and Buble. That one was just perfect. And of course, What's Up With That. Between Jason Sudekis' dancing and Lindsey Buckingham always getting looked over, it just works. Also loved the "Apology for We Are the World 25" one too.

I was happy to see the French sketch in there. That one was great. SNL has a lot of hopeful up and comers whom keep being looked over in favor of Wiig. I'd also say Hader but he's actually good.

But, I'm selectively forgetting that it also sucked most of the time, but for the couple of homeruns. And, nowadays, they still hit some homeruns... so, I guess it's not all that bad.



the thing that SNL has always done in its syndicated reruns is they condense the 90 minute show into 60 minutes, but they keep both musical appearances and Weekend Update and the open and usually the monologue. so that leaves only about 5 skethces.

in the 90s when Comedy Central aired the original Not REady For PRime Time Players, they used to air entire episodes. Oh. There were some stupendously unfunny "original cast" episodes. Everyone likes to think eveyrthing Belushi, Chase, Aykroyd, murray et al did was comedy gold, but.....go find the original unedited shows. It has always been hit or miss.

but when you tune in now, SNL has already cherrypicked the very best sketches and you aren't seen the shiat that they always have, season in season out. and yeah, there were some universally bad years (1994, 1985) but my point is, just by virtue of the show from 1988, 1991, 1998, 2003, 2006 is presented, in the year 2011, makes it easy to say "ZOMG THE OLD SHOWS WERE BETTER THAN THEY ARE NOW KRISTEN WIIG SUCKS ASS!"


my point
 
2011-09-06 07:13:25 PM  
SNL is not funny any more. Period.

I laughed at 2 of the skits posted. Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals and Vincent Price's Halloween Special.
And I'm sorry, but the title of this article alone pissed me off, "Rejecting your hipster displeasure"?! What? if you don't like SNL now you're a hipster? There is nothing wrong with saying that you prefer the older SNL compared to the new...mainly cause they were talented!

So much this.

I've been hearing SNL isn't funny anymore since about 1979 (off my lawn, etc.). But now that it's on DVD, sit through the 1st, 3rd and 4th episodes, 1975 (2nd is all music) -- there's, like, 2 good sketches, 3 or 4 good ideas for sketches, poorly executed. Not exactly the 1st 3 episodes of The Wire. But the good ones - damn

/btw - snl would maintain more cultural cache (right word, or that some the computer machine uses?) with the kids these days if they would let folks post their skits on youtube - I'll never understand why any company is against free publicity

Geek Squad,

Watch his White House Correspondents Dinner act and tell me he wasn't funny. It was scathing.

This list shouldn't include anything Timberlake has done, because it's so far above and beyond the rest of the shows that it isn't fair a) to him, because you're leaving out good stuff, and b) to everyone else having to measure up against it.

And yeah, 70% or more of it sucks, but those hour reruns I grew up with from the 90's cut out a lot of the suck and inflated the perceived quality of the show. The show needs to stay 90 minutes, because you never know what sketches are going to turn out to be gold or not. Barry Gibb is a great example of somethiing that was kinda off the wall that would've been cut from an hour show.

when they're good, they can be laugh your farking balls off good. but when the guest host isn't really selling it, it comes off flat. and the thing is, unlike what up with that, or gay stefon, or fo rtha tmatter, any sketch, the writing isn't really the X factor, it is the performance. again, the sketch is paint-by-numbers.

Seriously, Drew put it right in there, SNL isn't any better or worse than it was, it's just that the Best Of is always good. You don't want to sit and watch 10 years of Saturday Night Live, because it'll suck and be boring, you want to wait 10 years and watch the Best Of, and you'll think it's awesome. My wife and I did that and she said "We should start watching SNL" and I said "No, we should wait ten years and watch the next best of." She tried to watch two episodes, they were awful.

You know excatly what is going to happen.

taylor swift really sucked when she did it, i think betty white did it but i don't recall.....there have been a few where that sketch just kills and others where it is like, "ok, well, that was 5 minutes of no laughs, next sketch up!"

"Wizard of Ass!"

Legio Minervia: kukukupo: No. Not funny.

SNL stopped being even minorly humorous around 1997-1998 and hasn't done anything worthwhile since.

You sound old.


I threw it on the groooound.

coco ebert: Why don't they just cut it down to an hour? Then they could just throw the sh*tty sketches out.


crappy editors, I guess. I don't think that anyone in the comedy business knows exactly what's going to strike a nerve.

MiamiBlues: I'll never understand why any company is against free publicity


I assume it's because their advertisers don't allow it. Advertising people seem to be terrified that if the shows go on the internet that they will lose all of the exposure that they are paying for. So, the people paying for the project don't really care about the show's critical success, they only care about it's ability to get people to watch their ads

Forty-Two: Oh, what about the Peyton Manning United Way ad?


Came here to say this... glad it's been covered.

Still glad to see Celebrity Jeopardy was on there. Whole thing was awesome except Kristen Wiig, she just sucked.

Most of those were great, hadn't seen quite a few of them. Bill Hader was great; loved his Alda and Pacino impressions. Jon Hamm was pretty damn good too.

Guy who did the Cosby impression should be shot, he sucks in everything I've ever seen him in on SNL.

nekom: Other than celebrity Jeopardy, I see nothing in that list worth even giving a chance to.


THIIIIISSSSS!!!!!! How is Adam Sandberg even remotely considered funny? I seriously want my time back for watching those unfunny clips!

/But yeah, the Jeopardy bit was freakin' hilarious

I've been watching SNL since the Belushi days and I stopped watching after Samberg joined the cast. He's completely unfunny to the point that he makes Dane Cook look like Carlin. When he leaves, I might start to watch again.

I have been watching the past season or two if I'm home and Saturday nights and it definitely has some good moments. I just think anyone who types the word "hater" is an idiot and should receive an electric shock through their keyboard that renders them sterile.

wookiemonster: [dvdmedia.ign.com image 400x300]
four seasons
thirty episodes
not one sketch that wasn't hilarious
I still quote Mr. Show every day.
/F SNL and kirsten/kristen wigs


I did a blind buy for the first season or two of that on DVD. I don't remember cracking a smile once. WAY too much song and dance, as I recall. It just felt awkward. Then again, I see nothing funny at all in Flight of the Concords. Nothing. At all. I suppose I'm in the minority with this stuff though. I mean, I loved David Cross on Arrested Development. Just not Mr. Show.

Most of those fall into one (or more) of three categories:

1) Sketches with former cast members
2) Lonely Island videos
3) Sketches with Justin Timberlake

When touting how great the current cast is, you shouldn't bring as example sketches carried by former cast or Timberlake. The Lonely Island stuff is borderline cheating as well.

So, they found around 30 minutes of funny footage from the available 300,000 minutes or so?

SNL hasn't been funny since the moment my teenaged self decided that staying home on Saturday night and watching TV until 1AM was no longer an ideal use of time!
