Critic Consensus: Despite some effective political skewering, SNL's overreliance on celebrity cameos and uneven writing continues to overshadow its occasional moments of comedic catharsis.

Critic Reviews for Saturday Night Live Season 44

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

I know the season of trash-talking "Saturday Night Live" has begun, but I don't care. I'm glad the NBC show is back, and I will watch it regularly, even though I know it will disappoint me more than it will please me.

"Saturday Night Live" no longer stands as our appointed dispenser of satirical truths. It probably never did. Butsomewhere along the line, it turned into a weekly embalming. We no longer watch it with hope but from sheer inertia.

With the headlines continuing their spiral into conflict and uncertainty, full of heated if necessary social debates, SNL is back to provide a bit of a tonic for it all.

Sometimes, all that matters is that the show noticed all of the things you noticed, and then made jokes about them.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

We need shows like SNL to get us through times like these. But anger was largely missing from Saturday night's show, which instead played like a shrugged business-as-usual when it comes to staging political sketches...

SNL keeps trying to have its cake and eat it, too: earning the easy credibility of parroting liberal talking points while also harnessing the nonpartisan allure of extreme fame.

Matt Damon, a previous "SNL" host, masterfully took on the Kavanaugh role - sniffing compulsively, turning pages with an aggressive snap and slamming water so hard he was dribbling on his lap.

Still, whatever this show's faults, it was just good to have "Saturday Night Live" back to find humor in these divisive times.
