Audience Reviews for Saturday Night Live: Season 45

    Gone are the deep belly laughs and rapid phone calls after the show to make sure everyone you know saw the show's best skits. Even as a liberal, the political skits are numerous and far from funny. The original skits, while few and far inbetween, are repetitive and uninspired. The best part of the show is when the cast breaks at the sheer ridiculousness of the show and what it's become..

    Two words - lazy writing. SNL continues because it's the only show in its time slot. They've run the political impressions into the ground, I rarely if ever see anything risky or original. Eddie Murphy was a breath of fresh air, and a reminder of what that show was decades ago. They seriously need to step up their game.

    this show stopped being funny decades ago

    Deeply unfunny. I miss Celebrity Jeopardy. Justin Timberlake.

    The problem is that some of the SNL skits are mildly amusing, however the bulk of it is both silly and puerile. Clearly the target audience is a millennial viewer with little tolerance for pathos and well written satire, veering far more towards the slapstick and obvious. The fast forward button is of huge relevance.

    I used to look forward to watching the latest episode, but when they started focusing on political topics, it got repetitive. No fresh material over months and years killed it for me. Plenty of talent and plenty of boring material political or not at this point.

    Still classic as always! Every episode makes you happy immediately!

    This show just isn't what it used to be. Its too political, and I wouldn't mind a little joke here and there about politics, but it just seems to constantly try to slip in digs against people whenever they feel like it. It takes me out of the laughter to say "wow another joke about politics, really original".

    To all those who bemoan "do you remember when SNL was funny?" I say; it's still funny, it's you who have changed. SNL lampooned current events and politics since its inception, so if you are a triggered conservative, maybe just watch Jeff Dunham or something and give up the tired propaganda that SNL "got political" when it's ALWAYS been political.

    From musical guests eroding to almost consistent crap forms of rap to skits that are simply not funny, it's sad to see just how far SNL has fallen in the last 3-4 years. I began in the Eddie Murphy/Joe Piscopo-era as a 12-year-old who snuck it in when my parents were sleeping to see Gumby or Piscopo's Sinatra. Like most shows/series, it had its peaks and valleys but always seemed to rebound out of nowhere to put together some skits that killed. Hartman, Farley, Spade, Rock laid way to Farrell, Fey, Hader, Meyers, Sudekis, etc. where the one constant was that Lorne and the SNL writers simply knew what was funny. Even the hosts were incredible..John Hamm doing Def Comedy Jam? I get the political climate was ripe for the picking but SNL used up all that low-lying fruit 2 years ago. Trump inherently isn't a funny man and thinking Baldwin's spot-on impersonation gets funnier each week minimizes the viewers' intelligence. SNL needs new writers in the worst way. Hint: revisit off-the-wall skits/shorts like Dogshow, Walken's Googly-Eyes, Sergio, etc.. Remember Tim Meadows (Dr. Poop) walking into the office and did the robot and walked out? Like you guys forgot what funny is.
