News & Interviews for Saturday Night Live: Season 43
Sadly, SNL goes into another break of sorts on a weak note.
Let's face it, this is why you write for Will Ferrell, to come up with characters like Gareth - the Southwest Airlines flight attendant who's back after a month-long sabbatical and ready to share his hot take on how death is final.
Simply put: The Saturday Night Live Season 43 premiere makes it seem like it's going to be a long year.
It's completely narratively unjustified, its politics are messed up, and it wards off any lingering doubt that SNL has no idea what it's talking about when it talks about sexual harassment. Surprise, surprise.
Despite its reputation for political comedy, last night's season premiere proved that Saturday Night Live is much better when it avoids politics.
If, like me, you've been groaning through Baldwin's bafflingly bad impression of President Trump on SNL for the past nine months, last night's episode should have represented an apex of embarrassment for the apparently shameless 59-year-old actor.
