wow, SNL’s funny?

Filed under: — adrian @ 2:43 am

Maybe it was growing up during the early 90’s but for some reason I still tune in to Saturday Night Live every week. For a few years, I’d watch up until Weekend Update and then switch it off: during most of the Falon-Fey years it was certainly the funniest thing of the night. Since Fallon and then Fey left, even that hasn’t been all that funny recently.

But tonight I was surprised. The show was actually funny throughout. I laughed out loud during a number of sketches. Maybe it was Alec Baldwin (who hosted) who was great. Or maybe Tina Fey wrote some sketches (she cameo-ed on the show). And it probably wasn’t hurt by cameos by, Tina Fey, Tracey Morgan, Steve Martin, Martin Short (who appeared for about 22 seconds), Paul McCartney (similarly, 22 seconds), and Tony Bennett.

Anyway, funny stuff tonight. Maybe it’ll happen again next week…or again in six or seven years.

    I haven’t watched SNL consistently since the late ’80s. At some point, maybe 1991 or so, I got a paper route, delivering the Sunday Milwaukee Journal. Since I had to get up at like 4:30am on Sunday, watching SNL became impossible. I haven’t watched it much since then and I don’t think I’ve really missed much. The few times I have watched it, I’ve generally come away asking myself, “Why do people watch this show?” That said, this reaction isn’t unique to SNL. I watched Grey’s Anatomy for the first time last week and I had the same reaction to it.
