Saturday Night Live: Season 43 (2017 - 2018)



Critic Consensus: Saturday Night Live goes full-bore into the current political moment throughout this stilted season, showing an eagerness to engage with the national mood but never matching the series' past insight or laughs.

Critic Reviews for Saturday Night Live Season 43

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

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.

Oct 2, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

SNL was was the emptiest show of 2017, and the fact that it was so over-praised makes me worry we'll learn nothing at all from this particular moment in pop cultural history.

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.

[Gal Gadot's] enthusiasm seemed genuine... Alas, Gadot is not very funny and nor are the people who wrote her monologue.

Besides the cold opens and the show's general reliance on outside celebrities (past cast members or not), writing to and trusting the voice of the host has been a big problem of the year, though it has gotten better towards the end of the season.

This 43rd season of Saturday Night Live went out the same way it came in: Unsure how best to tackle Trump's America.

May 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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.
