SNL was great last Saturday. I agree it's quite hit or miss as a whole lately, but that was great. I also think Triumph is funny....sue me.

Dana was rarely funny unless you also define martin Short as funny...and if so.........

Up sh*t creek, without a paddle
Timberlake's new album is awesome. And, unless you've heard it, shut your pie hole.
Speaking of....I keep hearing one of his songs on the radio as I'm flippin' channels in the morning...I want to know what the hell that sound is in the background...sounds like some little squeaky toy gettin' the sh*t beat out of it. Or maybe Pokemon on X...I don't know...I just want to find out what it is....this is a source of great trepidation for me. Pls enlighten, thx.

You're going to have to clarify that a little...do you mean considered funny on SNL or in general?

Because if you meant in general, and you have Dennis Miller and Rob Schneider on your list by not Eddie Murphy or Jay Mohr, I have to think that you've been hitting the crack pipe.

(And I say that as a genuine fan of both the Deuce Bigelow movies...)

Yup, that was some funny. I loved the celebrity translator for mom's commercial.

The Target sketch was a good in a cringy sort of way. JT showin' off the chops.

Weekend update was pretty funny too. Bill Hader cracks me up.

Amy Pohler, Kenan Thompson, Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, are all hilarious
You have no conception of comedy.

SNL hasn't been consistently funny since the 70's. They do have flashes of brilliance, moments of funny, and a whole lot of trying too hard and failing.

Now, someone correct me if I am wrong, but isn't most of the writing done by a handful of writers and not by the actors/players themselves? (With a few exceptions)

crack is underrated...why do so many people dislike it?

eddie murphy was an oversight; w/ a list that large, i was bound to miss a few (ben stiller is generally funny as well). i have no idea who jay mohr is.
