Hey, TV-centric Writery Wonks - I am NOT you!
Current mood: miffed
Category: miffed Movies, TV, Celebrities

I often have occasion to say that I don't watch much TV.  It's true, but I don't say it with any sense of superiority, not at all.  [Now, some of you may not believe that.  In fact you're almost certainly staring at the screen with head cocked in confused-puppy-mode, but hear me out!  My arrogance goes way beyond recreational habits...  ;-) ]  Thanks to PCs and the internet, I just lack the patience anymore to sit watching most video, unless I deliberately set aside time to take in a movie (and even then, the remote is always ready to hand).

That said, I do have one very longstanding beef with one particular TV show.  Far too may times I've seen a good house party come to a screeching crashing halt at 11:30 pm on a Saturday.  Conversations stop, literally mid-sentence, when that first sketch starts, as everyone waits with bated breath - for that one line they all know is coming.  The sketch develops, with the fish-out-of-water guest host stumbling along, not quite keeping up with the veteran cast, until, however awkwardly it has to be worked in, there is that line... "Live, from New York, it's..." THE END OF YOUR PREVIOUSLY LIVE SATURDAY NIGHT.

So, I was badly miffed to read this line in a news story this morning,
"... higher ratings for the NBC program and increased traffic on its Web site where early-to-bed viewers catch the talked-about sketches in the days after".  

"Early-to-bed"??  Excuse me, pal!  Sorry that I couldn't take a break from watching a live band or shooting pool with a comely lass or giving tequila lessons to the whole bar. What I have always said about SNL is this:  If I can't find anything better to do by that time on a Saturday night, I might as well get some sleep.

I totally agree with you on this....I had company over last night and we turned it to SNL at 1130ish and THERE AGAIN for the 3rd week in a row is Tina Fey dressed up like Sarah Palin....ok we fucking get it..YOU LOOK LIKE AND SOUND LIKE SARAH PALIN...i mean gees!!!! I watched it long enough to see who the host was (btw...half of the time I don't even know WHO these people hosting are...and apparently no one does because they have to tell everyone where we MIGHT'VE seen them before)....and the musical guest (which was The Killers)...i must confess that I did turn it back and forth in the allotted times that i KNEW the music sections were in just to see them....love them, but not the new stuff...anyways, I'm rambling...my point is that I do agree with you and even though I spend most of my Saturday nights at home these days, I will more than likely make them as LIVE as I can without the help from that tired old cast of barely funny people anymore :) ahhh..I feel better now...lol

mmm... Tina Palin. I mean, Sarah Fey. Oh whatever - nice to look at, and both talented in their ways, but I can see them later!

Sure, but Tina Fey's impersonation of Sarah Palin is dead on. And not getting into politics or anything, but that woman makes it easy to make fun of her. And Amy Poehler does an excellent impersonation of Hillary Clinton, who also makes it easy to make fun of her (see, I'm not taking sides ;-)) I only watched the first skit Tina Fey did (the one where Michael Phelps was hosting) and didn't watch the rest of the episode. The other Tina Fey/Sarah Palin skits I have watched online.

SNL sucks now. It hasn't been good for years. It's not worth 'staying up' for. And I didn't know anyone still did.

Immaculately Cruel

Sara is right...
SNL has been sucking ass for many years now.
Of course even when it was good we were like Shawn....not usually home to see it anyway!

The last time I actually caught it was when Rob Lowe hosted and he did the Shaggy impression....and I think Rob Lowe was the funniest person on that night...I don't remember any of the skits except the ones with him in it. Before that...I think Eddie Murphy was still on, lol......

..and you (we) are NOT amused..should be added to your blog title..
since when are political skits the ONLY thing to poke fun at? What about bad movies, pop music, trashy celebs and other headlines news or and I know this is a stretch but a new skit made up of characters the snl crew creates just to make people laugh?

I did laugh at the referee skit last night with Andy/Kristen where they competed for the win at random acts.

As Bill Shatner said at his roast - "Is that all you got? After all the material I've given you??"

To be fair to the SNL folks though, there's a diminishing pool of truly common pop culture. People can watch whatever they want whenever they want, so they're not stuck seeing the same three networks worth of schlock all the time. The political scene may be the only common thread left, and it is especially poke-fun-able this year.
