I love reading the SNL thread every week.  The fans really hate that show

It's time. It's too hard for the younger players to break out with so many people.

Open up season 48 with the surviving not ready for prime time players

Kyle Mooney leaving is GREAT news. That dingus is every unfunny cast member in the show's history rolled into one person. He was in so many painful sketches. I hope the door does hit him on the ass on his way out.

/ Keenan glues a "Kick-Me" sign to his back as he goes.

No more Baby Yoda, no more fat lady singing every skit? Thank god.
Pete's stuff will be missed, as will Kate.

I think McKinnon missed the boat on her exit.  She should have jumped around 2016-17.

I enjoyed the "couple" sketches with Leslie Jones. Unfortunately, someone in the sketch writing room seems to think his range is entirely pathetic obnoxious douche nerd and nothing else.

It wouldn't have hurt if he EVER played the straight man since then. It isn't like there are any other members that haven't been put into that role for a sketch or 2.

Hell, he could have played Kenan's part in last weeks episode in the Old Enough, played the same way, and it probably could have been great.

I'm sure there is competition to be in actually funny sketches. Maybe he just doesn't have the pull to be funny. Ever.

She was ready to do at least four years of Hillary. Then....

Kate McKinnon is funny. Pete Davidson is sad.

The only one worth a damn (apart from the now iconic Pete) is Chloe.
That NBC allows an obsolete nonagenarian like Michaels to stranglehold their supposed comedy flagship is staggering to me.

Mooney thinks Lorne is gonna invite him back as host in a few years.  Hah.

I get that McKinnon will have no problem making a living. She's very talented. Davidson's one trick pony show will wear thin quickly and soon he will long for the days of a regular paycheck from SNL. Mooney and Bryant? Who's hiring them to do anything?

You mean how some farkers praise the show and a few of the performers while others lambast the show and a few of the performers?

So predictable!

And Mooney created a Netflix series based on Saturday morning cartoons of the 80s/90s. I enjoyed it, hit the mark when it needed.

If they clean sweep the cast and start over like they kind of did in ?95. I'll restart watching.

I've never seen him on SNL, but I will say that Brigsby Bear was a great movie

Well, she was. Shrill is done. But she mostly held her own among a pretty talented cast.

Kate McKinnon only being on for 10 years is really distorting my perception of the past. I mean, she played Kathleen Sebelius in a sketch about the Obamacare rollout issues. Are you telling me that was only a decade ago?

/I wish them all luck in their future. There's no guarantee of success for any of them, but with streaming services desperate for content, I'm sure they'll have an easy time finding shows in the short run.

You need your biggest stars to retire at some point to build up the next generation of big stars. SNL has been around for almost 50 years, it will survive and you'll see the building up of a next-generation where not every week is the same show with the same characters and same jokes.

At least Jim Breuer is still gone. And, Jim, if you got a notification about a Google hit, I was just checking your spelling.

WAS.

Ended after three seasons, which was two too many.

I didn't used to have a problem with Pete Davidson until I realized that he only has one joke. "I live with my mom." That's his joke.

He appears on the new season of The Kids in the Hall, and even makes that joke there. "I I live with my mom."

Yeah, Pete. You live with your mom because if you didn't, you wouldn't have any jokes.

I'm not a Davidson fan, but are you totally kidding all the movies he's doing? Writing? Producing? Directing?

He's a busy dude since he got sober.

Kate is a genius and a treasure. They did tend to have her doing "everything", though. My impression is that she kind of took up all the oxygen in the show, and in the past season, she's such an audience favorite, she kind of upstages everyone else in the cast and plays that popularity to the hilt. She'll do fine and succeed wherever she goes. Her departure leaves a big hole to fill, and opportunities for new cast members to grow into the roles that Kate was getting.

Nah, she'll end up writing children's books.

I love Breuer as a storyteller, particularly when he's waxing nostalgic on his Long Island youth; but his acting, his standup, his SNL work, and his idiot antivaxxing are all big fat zeroes.

Aidy Bryant is one of the lead VO actors on Human Resources, the spinoff from Big Mouth on Netflix. Both of those shows are really funny.

From what substances are we talking? Because I thought it was known he smoked weed for his anxiety.

McKinnon was funny at the start but now she's just terrible caricatures, mugging for the camera.  Bryant isn't terrible on her own but becomes Fallon/Sanz when she's working with McKinnon.
Mooney?  He's not great but doesn't deserve the level of hatred he gets here.
