Pull the Plug on SNL

snl sucks
It’s time to pull the plug on Saturday Night Live! I mean really, does anybody still watch it? The latest show, which included an animated sketch making fun of Rush Limbaugh’s drug problem, was the last straw for me. Sure the guy might be annoying, to some people, especially the majority of “entertainers”, but laughing at Someone’s personal drug addiction is not funny. Did they make fun of John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Chris Farley, or probably the vast majority of the cast’s chemical problems? Never. The show has had its ups and downs over the years with writers and cast, but the majority of seasons have been disappointing. Lorne Michaels has proven over the past few years that his time has come and gone. The show just isn’t funny. Pseudo-sophisticated New York humor doesn’t work anymore. The cast is horrible, the writing is lame and the music, when not lip-synced, sucks. NBC would be better off running Tony Robbins infomercials. Until the show is replaced, the new title should be, Saturday Night Lame! And maybe someone should tell Michaels that other than his Marxist entertainment friends, it gets pretty boring to watch the endless attempts to portray the President and anyone in politics who might be conservative, as an idiot or evil. It’s over. NBC needs to turn out the lights on SNL now!

They constantly made/make fun of their own shortcomings, including addictions, especially Belushi and Chase. They made fun of Farley's weight repeatedly.

The dumb ass who wrote that entry didn't foresee the future with the 2008-2009 cast. Michael's still has it. Rush Limbaugh is a liar and hypocrite, so he deserves to be made fun of. He attacked so many people for the their addictions while he was popping pills himself. He's a phony and a bigot so who cares. The fat fuck can take it.
