Yup, nothing wrong with SNL, its best days are past, as are its worst. The novelty is long gone, but beyond that, it's as entertaining, and up and down as it ever was. Anyone who wasn't entertained by SNLs coverage of our last presidential election is just too tough an audience.

Had they not had Tina Fey guesting in to do a dead-on Sarah, it would have been far less entertaining...

OK, and if the earth had no atmosphere, it would be far more difficult to breathe...

BTW, for the most part, all Tina Fey did as a regular SNL cast member, was the News segment you still seem to enjoy.

I wasn't just speculating, it's just that for very much of their presidential spoof stuff she was the linchpin. I don't know what NBC paid her to come back for those little bits, but it wasn't enough.

The news and ads are the only thing that are you can watch and still be assured of at least finding one thing you can enjoy. And throughout their ups and downs over the years that has generally been true. Their skits are nowhere near as entertaining and creative as they used to be, but that's JMO. After all there were people who really loved those moronic, brain-dead cheerleader skits, right?

People have been saying SNL isn't as good as it used to be, since before its first airing. Ten years from now, people will say that it isn't as good as it was ten years ago. It is our nature to recall highlights, and to filter out redundancies. The simple truth is that the show was never as good as we'd like to recall.
