    I've seen it on other boards and it just doesn't work. TBer-A writes something stupid like attributing the wrong actor to a classic movie. TBer-B calls him on it and laughs and laughs. TBer-A goes back and edits his mistake and TBer-B looks like an asshole. Just take 10 seconds and proofread your post before sending. There are a million changes that could be made to drag this TB format kicking and screaming into the 21st century but an edit feature isn't one of them.

    When did SNL stop being funny?

    by Falcon-1

    I think the answer to that question depends on what kind of comedy do you prefer. For instance, if you like off-the-wall, mad-cap comedy, then the comedy of the Not Ready For Primetime Players (John Belushi,Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murry,Gilda Radner, etc) would be the choice. If your preference is a little more edgy, more biting humor, then I'd go with the troupe that included Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, and Joe Piscapo. However, those three were about the only thing that was funny during those years, so the laughs were few and far between for most people. The later years, the comedy started to morph from edgy to mean-spirited. There were some that stuck out though (Mike Meyers, Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey) but the humor started to get influenced by other shows that were (most times) funnier like In Living Color and the skits more and more seemed like try-outs for motion picture spin-offs (Wayne's World being one that comes to mind) instead of just trying to be funny on their own. Today's SNL is a poorly acted, poorly written mess that only serves to remind us of how good the show used to be. I truly don't think the show would exist today if it weren't for teleprompters feeding the "actors" (and I use that term loosely) their next line. The jokes and skits are no longer laugh-out-loud funny and, most of the time, leaves the viewer wondering what they were thinking. That said, I don't want anyone thinking I'm advocating that the show be cancelled. I'm not in that camp. I do, however, believe that it needs a complete overhaul. The reason the early years were so much funnier was because they weren't attacking someone, it was because the actors themselves were just funny in the highest sense of the word. There are still comedians out there today that are just as funny as well as writers who, if given the chance, could make the show universally funny again; but that would require the full backing of the network and the show's producers. Stiff suits who, today, seem to have an agenda more than a willingness to entertain. It is going to require a reconnection with the people and what they think is funny instead of the suits telling us what is funny. This is just my opinion, but looking at the show's sagging ratings and near-misses with cancellation, I don't think I'm too far off.

  • Nov. 12, 2011, 12:26 p.m. CST

    Wait, you have to be 60 to like blondes?

    by NeonFrisbee

    That makes sense, how? Personally, as an 85 year old man who has been with many women over the years, through the lean years of the First Depression, the Wars, the Sexual Revolution, et al, I like all colors of hair on pretty girls. Some hair colors suit some girls better, though. As a red head, Emma looks cute, but forgettable. As a blonde she's GORGEOUS. On the flip-flip, I think Katy Perry looks smokin' hott as a brunette (like a nu-Bettie Page), and kinda whatevs as a blonde. In other words, it depends on the girl, not the age of the viewer. One you get out of middle school, you'll see what I mean.

    I can't think of the last time they did anything that was laugh out loud funny. And I have been watching this since the muppets/jim hensons puppets were on. I also saw the episode where Charlie Rocket dropped the F bomb. so yes I have been with the show a long time. I also remember the season where Larry David was on. For one sketch. As a doorman. I had the opportunity/curse to sit in on a rehersal back in the 80's and got to witness Lorne in all his greatness. It now appears that those truly talented comics/actors get crap sketches and the high profile ones get a majority of air time. It has just become a launching pad for bad movies. Let the bitching begin.

    Nah. Ska really never had a snowballs chance of ever becoming mainstream. With its horns and percussions just too complex for the average listening audience. There was a time briefly, but then the late 90s rolled through. Boy bands became popular again and being a neoyuppie was all the rage. But I tell ya, back in 95 i thought music had changed for the better. Ska bads like dance hall crashers, skankin pickle, hepcat...........we were living on the cusp of righteous coolness. No nsync. No backstreet boys. No justin bieber. No american idol. Even the most lamest were pretty good. Oasis for example. But all fell apart.

    by Al

    Haven't seen last week's ep yet. Emma Stone in What Up With That may actually blow my mind. Youth in Paris was the first time she was one, but I'm going to actually admit that Miley Cyrus' Youth in Paris bit was funnier but only because they went more Out There for that. Oh, and Jim Carrey in the cold open. Or she makes a response to him in that also. Something like that. I'm actually at work tonight so I'll be missing the Live Saturday Night Live but I'll check out the Left Cost Broadcast at 2:30 AM. God bless HD packages!

    Lohan can act

    by Extr3m1st

    She has been pretty solid in a few movies, A Prairie Home Companion comes to mind. Mean Girls as well. IDD that Emma is the more complete package. Anything Lindsay has ever done that has been good is pretty much drowned out by the way she has lived her life the past few years. She can't get out of her own way now she is showing her snatch to make money. There are 5 million better looking girls flashing on webcams all over the country, I would much rather be known as a good looking successful working actress then what she has turned herself into lately. I think Emma is way too smart to go down that same road.

    I am old enough to

    by In Action Man Reborn Requiem

    have watched SNL from almost the beginning staring with the '76-'77 season. The humor in the beginning was incredibly mean. They trashed Tom Snyder on a regular basis. There was a ton of drug/ racial humor. They made fun of abused men who "cry and masturbate alone in the dark" and even bagged on the U.S. Navy. The '75 to '79 seasons were also better because the writers and performers were doing a lot of stuff "out of the trunk". Bits that they had honed for years at "Second City", "The Groundlings" and the "National Lampoon's" stage show "Lemmings." Belushi's dead on Joe Cocker came strait from "Lemmings." SNL has had highs and lows. During the years that Dick Ebersol produced the show limped along doing very safe stuff. When Lorne returned he rebuilt the show with the best years being the Hartman/Carvey/Lovits period. As Sandler/Farley and Spade took over quality began to suffer. There was somewhat of a renaissance during the Will Ferrel/Tina Fey years. But Tina Fey took a lot of the best writers with her for "30 Rock" and Adam Mckay went with Ferrel. Seth Myers just plain blows. There really needs to be a house cleaning in the writers room and Keenan needs to be shown the door. The most telling info to come out about SNL behind the scenes was Bill Hader in the recent "South Park" documentary stating that SNL won't really go after celebrities and politicians the way "South Park" does because Lorne doesn't want to offend any potential guest hosts. Good satire always reveals truths but, when the satirist starts to self censor there is little point in being a satirist.

    by Cheif Brody

    Fuckin Norm gettin fired off Weekend Update cuz of OJ jokes was a painful misfire for Ebersol/NBC & SNL. Not sayin MacDonald was the greatest or anything...but that was a douche move by Ebersol...and I applaud Norm for sticking it to OJ even after he was told to back off. <p> Dead on with regards to the ups & downs of the casts over the years. My assessment exactly. <p> it just me...or do they need to lay off on the SNL Digital Shorts for a while? Seems like there use to be 4 or 5 episode gaps between those in the they have a new one on every week. And lately they haven't been up to par. I realize they are looking for those to go super viral (and monetized) on the web...but, I think they'd be smarter to save their $$$ if they don't really have another "Lazy Sunday", Live ction "Ambiguously Gay Duo"...or "Jizzed In My Pants" in the comedy chamber. They've recently just been kinda lame skits shot on film instead of done live, IMO. By the way..."Censored Satire" would be an awesome band name. Better than "Coldplay" at least!!

    SNL has always been funny

    by maxjohnson1971

    Except for the abysmal 81 and 85 season. What people forget to remember is that not ALL of the skits were funny, even in the first three years. Go back and watch the complete shows and you will realize there were quite a few stinker sketches just like there are now and quite a few bad episodes as a whole. It isn't as fresh as it was perhaps, but SNL has regained a bit of relevency in the past few years and that can't be ignored. The political humor is back and some of the more absurd stuff is returning as well. On that topic, tonight isn't too good.

    Terrible episode

    by Eric Shea

    Almost every sketch was a rehash. I never need to see that 1964 game show sketch that was hardly funny the first time they did it ever again. Wiig has about five different unfunny characters that she does over and over ad infinitum. The only laughs from me came during the bridal shower skit. The digital short was way below average. I like Emma Stone, but she wasn't given much to work with this week. I was waiting for them to do Googie Rene's discount Halloween costumes, but alas, they wasted the opportunity. And I didn't think it was possible, but Coldplay has actually gotten worse.

    Heh, I got a huge kick out of Emma in the bridal shower skit as the awkward coworker. "DIE PIG!" They gave her more to do this ep. aside from before. It started a little heavy on recurring skits (Hell, even the opening monologue was them stealing a bit directly from Kirsten Dunst's hosting) but I got more out of the later half of the episode.

    Why I think SNL sucks...

    by SK229

    And I agree, the problem with the show is it isn't mean-spirited enough. I wouldn't call it mean-spirited so much as willing to do comedy with an edge, to do racial humor, to call public figures out on shit... just generally behaving like you don't give a fuck. The original cast definitely had an air of rebellion to them... I think the last cast member who had that was Eddie Murphy. The Carvey/Hartman years were my favorite, but that's when the safer humor started, followed by the frat boy years of Sandler, Spade, and Farley. But what's going on now, including with the cast, is the same thing that goes on elsewhere in television, even in the executive ranks - it's now a club full of privileged kids who told mommy and daddy they wanted to get into television and be close to celebrities. Some of them have talent, some of them don't, but it's damn near impossible for someone to come out of nowhere and earn their spot completely on merit these days. A lot of these people just aren't funny. This is all very hard to explain unless you're in that world, but a lot of it has to do with being the sons and daughters of well connected people or living amongst all the other hipster mediocrities, always patting each other on the back and doing the kind of self-referential humor that only they can understand but in reality just isn't fucking funny... at all. There's an air of entitled smugness (and it ain't the Chevy Chase kind) and it doesn't even seem to matter that anyone with half a brain would fire them and then go dig deep into the night clubs and improv groups across the country to find funny people who are less sheltered than your average Brooklyn by way of Minnesota transplant or "I went to the same summer camp as the head writer for five years" type. This isn't so bad in the world of movies unless you look at independent film and especially the festival system. Those too have become a place where there's literally no accounting for quality. When is the last time a Christopher Nolan or an Aronofsky came out of Sundance or SXSW? What's the recent big one? Oh yeah... CATFISH -- - Look up the story of the guys who made that film and then refer to what I said in the paragraph above. But yeah, movies are still a lot more of a meritocracy than television... if you're directing a film and spending a hundred million dollars, you better know what the fuck you're doing. That's one of the reasons most newcomers are people who made amazing short films that hit on youtube... they've proven people actually want to watch what they're doing and know how to entertain an audience. Ok... rant over.

    Emma Stone making out with the marionette FTW

    by Al

    Yeah, Secret Word is lame but her kissing that puppet was pretty awesome. Probably practicing for after the show with Andrew Garfield.

    Last nights SNL---GET RID OF GARTH AND KAT

    by JeffManSixtyFo

    Stone kissing the dummy in the Secret Word skit was its only saving grace.

  • She's a through and through SNL geek, which is one of the many reasons I love her, and I can see her keep coming back and wanting to host whenever they have her. Emma Stone and Justin Timberlake are the new Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin. Calling it now. Hopefully whenever they do the "Youth in Paris" skit they'll bring her back on for a cameo.

    Jon Hamm & Timberlake

    by Bass Ackwards

    I'd say Hamm and Timberlake are the guys setting the bar for SNL episodes these last few years. Stone hasn't done anything on the show that's memorable or rewatchable, last night's bland episode included. She is certainly game and cute as a button, but this episode was ultimately forgettable.

    Last half hour was funnier

    by theBigE

    I finally watched the last half hour of the show. There were some actual laughs in there, unlike the first hour. I'll give the episode a solid "C" thanks to the final sketches.
