Yeah remember when cast members used to be able to make their career either on Weekend Update or playing someone in the presidential sketches. Now those are reserved for a celeb or former cast member doing either a bad or overrated impression of a political figure.

Tired of the stunt casting. Baldwin was fun as Trump for a time or two, but after getting it time and time again the novelty has worn off and you’re just left with a dogshit impression.

I was gong to point that out. A bunch of technical errors last night. Which has been common the last few years. What the hell is going on in the production side?

I just watched the debate sketch. Carrey's Biden voice is great (the makeup not so much and he's kind of just doing Fire Marshall Bill again with his face), but the writing and comedic material stunk. Just the blandest and most milquetoast shit with celebrities grinning and repeating the exact same shit from the debate while the audience cackles. The timing was all off in the sketch too. It would really be funnier and more ballsy if SNL just didn't have anyone do Trump and just use a bag of compost as a Trump stand in. The Baldwin impression is as obnoxious and unfunny as the real Trump.

A bunch of the non political sketches last night came off Nickelodeon-ish to me. The constant mugging is really annoying but maybe that's the direction they are given.

Rock seemed underutilized as well

I saw a picture of one of the new recurring players and he looks like he's young enough that he could be on the current iteration of All That so maybe they are heading in that direction. I mean Baldwin could take tips from the girl on All That's Ross Perot impression on how to make a ridiculous impression amusing.

Bill Burr/Jack White is the dream lineup for thirtysomething white dudes. Me and my friends are all (remotely) high fiving rn.

There are people who think Burr's monologue was homophobic?

I can do without comedians complaining about "cancel culture", but it doesn't really elicit anything more than an eyeroll anymore.

White women getting mad at it is pretty funny, though.

On next week's show, we'll get the comedy stylings of...Adele?

Non actor host that doesn't exhibit any signs of comedic chops + fourth week in a four week in a row stretch= potential for an epicly bad show.
