SNL is very weak and childish, they remind me of the little whiners who don’t get there way.

Trump gives them new material every week. He needs to stop acting like a fool and starting acting intelligent and Presidential. Stop the tweets, name calling, bullying and delusional rants and they wont have sketch material. All presidents have been featured on the show but Trump is the only one to whine about it. Republicans, stand up and stop him or in two years…

Melissa, Melissa is funny. SNL has outlived it’s entertainment value. I haven’t watched it for a long time. Seeing current skits reminds me why.
February 16, 2017,11:51 am
SNL is so lame and has been one sided for a long long time! Not funny or clever anymore! Don’t watch it now!
February 16, 2017,5:16 am
not anymore. the jokes used to be light hearted & funny, but the last 20 or so years it’s gotten down-right mean-spirited. sad.

SNL used to be very funny 10 years or so ago…Today, those Liberal actors are racists, nutcases…They don’t know what real comedy is…
February 15, 2017,12:10 am
I do not watch ABC, NBC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC programming except for sports because they are totally liberal bias networks. SNL is not funny, it is mean spirited and not the type of entertainment it was years and years ago. Political agendas are ruining this country that is why I voted for Trump.

It used to be funny when they had people like Gilda Radner on. The show was more apolitical back then and anyone was fair game. Mostly it was just funny things like Emily Litella (Radner) talking about “whorled peas”, and the “deaf penalty”, etc., and when she was corrected would say “never mind” in a droning voice, an expression that would be said well into the future. The entrance of Jane Curtin into the mix started turning the show more liberal.

Haven’t seen an episode since the ’80s when Eddie Murphy left for fortune and fame. Based on the clips I’ve seen over the past 30 years; Lorne Michaels has turned into a bitter old bastard, and what was once biting, funny, and must see TV is long gone. It’s all bash conservatives, all the time, hahahaha I have put a full BAN on all liberal TV shows, news shows, movies with actors who are liberal ass-wipes, singers/bands who are liberal turds and so on and so forth. Just TUNE THEM OUT and life gets instantly better!!! I’d rather watch/listen to Greg Gutfeld on the FIVE or his show–that guy’s funny and bashes liberals too!!!!

not funny just stupid
February 14, 2017,4:09 pm
No, it’s not funny now, or has ever been, since you started trying to mimic our President, and disgracing this Country which he is trying to build back up. You have disgraced the AMERICAN people who support this COUNTRY and OUR PRESIDENT ELECT, You have made your show so intolerable to watch anymore, because we already know what your acts are going to be about and they’re not funny. You should be ashamed of what you are doing to embarrass this COUNTRY’S PRESIDENT ELECT, and the AMERICAN people, who support him, or at the very least, respect him for who he is!! (the PRESIDENT) You want something funny, try doing Obama, or Hillary, that would be funny!! I Think/feel that your writers and you so called comedians, who are trying to embarrass the President of the United States, should be at the very least IMPRISONED. How many other countries do you see on t.v., talking about, criticizing, embarrassing or trying to dehumanize their President?? None, because they would either be be-headed for treason or at the very least deported to another country or arrested. The same should happen to you !!!
February 14, 2017,3:25 pm
Ignorance is bliss on SNL. Haven’t watched it in years as their snippets that make the news I find repulsive!
February 14, 2017,2:18 pm
Haven’t watched this show in years. When it first started ,it was funny. It’s just too political and mean. I don’t watch it any more.
February 14, 2017,2:08 pm
Stupid and insulting to viewers.
February 14, 2017,11:58 am
Just mean mean mean. Not funny.
February 14, 2017,10:04 am
That skit on Kellyanne Conway last week was dispicable
They have terrible writers and can’t seem to come up with original material so all their jokes on based on Trump and his cabinet – getting old
February 14, 2017,6:41 am
SNL not only is not funny anymore, but in my recollections IT NEVER WAS!
February 14, 2017,1:53 am
The original cast from the seventies kept you rolling in the aisles 🙂 Now,,they were FUNNY !!!
February 14, 2017,12:23 am
Still funny ?? As funny as being an eighty nine year old and receiving a letter from SS that your benefits have expired ! No,,,,,,,they ain’t funny.!!
February 14, 2017,12:21 am
Don’t watch snl did not watch after the first couple of programs it is retarded and not funny at all, now snl is just a political tool for democRats and crybabies still upset because their darling hillary lost the election even with all the illegal votes
February 14, 2017,12:07 am
SNL has not been funny in a very long time…too many “self-absorbed” supposedly funny performers. No comedy, just skits of criticism and degradation of individuals and organizations. These are not comedians…nothing talented or amusing about their skits. And the world is laughing at the liberals, Dems and the filthy mouthed racist protesters who have lost touch with reality… not those of us Americans who voted for true leadership and a return to a prosperous life for everyone without the government telling you how to exist! Trump will live up to being the president we need. If ever anyone in the world wondered who is the domestic terrorists in the U. S. who march, destroy and disrupt others lives…well, the Dems have shown their true colors and the elite fools who think they are above everyone else! I was ashamed for the world to see the women in America who are such lowly scumbag, filthy examples. When morals become non-existent a nation will implode…check out real history!
February 13, 2017,11:23 pm
Yes, SNL is needed now more than ever. We need the voice of the people. Trump is a narcissistic bully. The world is laughing at us.
February 13, 2017,9:49 pm
No hasn’t been funny in 20 years. Watched for entertainment not politics
February 13, 2017,9:19 pm
Have not watched snl for years, I thought it sucked 10 yrs ago.
February 13, 2017,7:38 pm
Old hat! Don’t watch it and really tired of hearing about it! Why are we giving it so much attention?!?!?!
February 13, 2017,7:17 pm
Havent watched it in 20+ years
February 13, 2017,6:42 pm
Kate McKennon is terrible. News Update is the signal to raid the fridge. It has become “how do we trash Trump this week?”
February 13, 2017,6:00 pm
Still funny, but not by much.
February 13, 2017,5:58 pm
SNL is a political forum for the far left petulant liberals. It hasn’t been funny since the early 90’s.
February 13, 2017,5:52 pm
That guy Bowdwin doesn’t know how to impersonate the real Donald Trump. He wants to make him look and sound real stupid. The Kellyanne Conway impersonator went over the top last Saturday with her little sketch with the CNN guy Jake. I was not laughing at all. However, I laughed my head off the first time Melissa did Sean Spicer. But this last Saturday for some reason, I found the sketch unfunny. The libs are making a fool out of themselves now.
February 13, 2017,5:29 pm
I have never liked it or thought it was funny. John Fredericks played it this morning on his radio program in Chesapeake. He said he thought it was so funny. What he played was disgusting, not funny at all. I think his cheese slipped off his cracker.
February 13, 2017,5:05 pm
The Left have lost their sense of humor because they can not laugh at themselves
February 13, 2017,5:04 pm
All comedians have made fun of whoever the President is! The Prez n cute little KellyAnn do enough to make all of us laugh! I think he n she are doing it on purpose just to pull dems legs! Iffin’ ya’ll can’t laugh at yoself des gonna laugh at ya even mo!!
Oh and Susan, lol! “Politics should never be included with business”????? That’s what this election is all about!!!! That’s what is upsetting people about the Supreme Court decision to allow big business to make anonymous donations to campaign parties! That’s how the billionaire, Ms DeVos, w/no experience or education in education bought her position as the Secretary of Education. That’s why Kellyann got into trouble advertising for Trump’s daughters business. All of Trump’s cabinet are billionaires. They will see to it that the rest of us can earn some of their money. I think money is somewhat finite and if they have 98-99% of it and their taxes go down and our taxes go down just how are we gonna get some of it? I got it! Do away w/ healthcare, education. Keep pay low…?…. hmm well they are stupid people anyway. If they were smart they would pay thousands of dollars to go to college so they could come back and maybe if they are lucky make $15 /hr managing those retards. Right? Ya done good dummies!
February 13, 2017,4:47 pm
It stopped being funny a long time ago. I havent watched in years. Its more disgusting now than funny.
February 13, 2017,4:45 pm
Used to watch it every week, but not this anymore, too biased. If I wanted to see that I would just watch the news!
February 13, 2017,4:43 pm
February 13, 2017,4:40 pm
It never was funny and stopped even looking at it, never mind watching it, long, long time ago. A bunch of morons try to be satirical and fail week after week. There are so many other things to do in life than watching morons.
February 13, 2017,4:38 pm
I’m more conservative than 90% of the people out there, supported Trump 100% over Hitlery, and think SNL is hilarious; this thin-skinned mewling by new “conservatives” is getting embarrassing. They offended us, so yank ’em off the air!? Right… that will go over great. Let’s suck it up and stop pouting over everything. The worst was that completely benign Bud “immigration” Super Bowl commercial made months ago, that has idiots banning Budweiser because they think it slams the Leader. Please! Act like adults here. Take the joke for what it’s worth, and give it right back at them.
February 13, 2017,4:31 pm
I stopped watching SNL long ago during Slick Willy’s reign in the White House. It’s become nothing but a political forum for the far left communists in Hollyrotten.
February 13, 2017,4:28 pm
I have nothing against political satire; but when the show is only a nonstop mean, aggressive and irrational political agenda, it becomes predictable and boring. I stopped watching some time ago.
February 13, 2017,4:22 pm
SNL hasn’t been funny for decades. How is it still on?
February 13, 2017,4:17 pm
I used to love and look forward to seeing the show. I am no longer watching. Just like all the national news, has become insultingly biased!
February 13, 2017,4:15 pm
I haven’t watched it in years and years! They work too hard trying to be funny-not dan ackroid, bill Murray or chevy chase💩 Especially since it is so liberal and make fun of people kinda like bullies. I am surprised it is still airing. I prefer sleeping than watching this show . I would rate it at a 0. politics should never be included in business😡😡😡😡
February 13, 2017,4:15 pm
Many years ago, SNL ceased being funny. Since I haven’t seen anything from SNL in many years, I still believe, based on past experience, they are STILL NOT FUNNY !
February 13, 2017,4:15 pm
SNL has become predictable. Seeing the same repetitive skits is tiresome. Pat
February 13, 2017,4:13 pm
We are too old for that kind of humor. I realized something this past week. My Dad was 91yrs old when he past recently, and he was a republican his whole life. He never said a bad word about a man in office no matter who he was. SO, when I think about who might be elected by future generations, it could be worse.
February 13, 2017,4:10 pm
I stopped watching a long time ago when they disrespected President Trump
February 13, 2017,3:58 pm
sometimes the opening skit is good, as in this past Saturdaynight, but overall the show is not worth watching anymore regardless of politics, it is just not funny Baldwin is pretty good as Trump, but that is getting very old already
February 13, 2017,3:57 pm
Hasn’t been funny for a long time now. That’s about how long it’s been since I quit watching it.
February 13, 2017,3:55 pm
Not funny or entertaining for the past 15+ years.
February 13, 2017,3:54 pm

Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
Should Speaker of the House Paul Ryan resign after the 2018 midterm elections? Vote in our CBC reader poll!
