News & Interviews for Saturday Night Live: Season 42
Saturday's "SNL" was a good start for the season and a triumph for Alec Baldwin.
This episode definitely feels like a finale, insofar as there are a lot of excellent sketches that may have been held back for this week and a few calculated risks that pay off.
Season 42 of Saturday Night Live had some undeniable high points, but it often felt like a case of style over substance.
If President Trump's shock-and-awe attack on truth, decorum and liberal sensibilities is intended to bludgeon his opponents into submission, "Saturday Night Live" felt like his latest victim this weekend.
In a season that's going to have a lot of Clinton-Trump sketches, there's a lot that's encouraging here.
But all this is meaningless when asking whether this was a good year for the show creatively. Because if we look at SNL in terms of how groundbreaking and funny it was this season, "spectacular" is not a word that comes to mind.
Audience Reviews for Saturday Night Live: Season 42
May 03, 2020The writing is terrible.
Aug 20, 2019Greatest late-night show!
Sep 05, 2017SNL has officially gone downhill.From what was once a show that barely had every episode making fun of the president and making politics be funny and sometimes not, to now becoming the anti-trump show has become very boring.I am not saying I love politics that much, but if it is mentioned and used on a late-night comedy show every week,it becomes boring
Jun 25, 2017SNL Season 42 is old-fashioned hit and miss, kind of like an assorted chocolate box, there are horrid sketches and there are good sketches. Speaking of chocolate, I loved the sketch where they turned Putin into the Chocolate Man who wants to apologize for being such a woman-hunting sexual predator...... by offering free chocolate.
May 13, 2017So far the season is mediocre with perictably written skits.
Mar 11, 2017They just focus too much on politics and isolate their audience that way. Their humor just isn't original or funny, and the guest appearances seem to be a revolving door of unfunny, political people.
Mar 04, 2017SNL hasn't been funny in 30 years. Why on earth is it still on the air?
Feb 13, 2017Alec Baldwin is amazing as The Groper. When I first saw him, I thought he really was The Groper.
Dec 10, 2016The emperor has no clothes! With the exception of weekend update the show is unwatchable. There are some talented cast members but the writing is painfully unfunny. It is a tough job but the material is VERY weak. Sadly, has not been funny for MANY years.
