Hey 3.5 readers.
BQB with a complaint here. It seems lately that SNL has averaged like one show a month, if that. I haven’t sat down and figured out how long it is between shows, but it has been weeks since there has been a new one and that happens all the time.
WTF? It used to be that whenever a news story broke, you could go, “Oh, I bet SNL will have fun with that” but now by the time they do a new show the story is old news.
I’m not sure what the deal is. Maybe the actors are all working on movie deals, maybe everyone wants time off or something, I don’t know. All speculation on my part.
It just seems incredibly lame to me that they can’t do better than this. There should be a show every Saturday.
I’ve wondered if the Internet has had an impact on this. Perhaps people don’t stay up for SNL anymore because of it. However, for me, I watch SNL now more than ever because of the Internet. I just go right to YouTube and watch whatever sketches I want. I don’t know if that hurts their bottom line though I feel like there’s got to be some ad revenue even in posting sketches in the web. I like it because I don’t have to stay up late and can watch whatever I want and skip over whatever seems lame.
Just a complaint I’m putting out into the universe. A lot is happening in the world and SNL is missing out on it.
