    The humor is so predictable and corny. It's an American thing I guess.
    It was only good when it began, with the first cast. There are reasons for this: Then, it was the first time young adults (mostly twenty-somethings) had their own network comedy show. Their irreverence and wit was new then. There were things happening and that had recently happened that deserved to be made fun of and disrespected, and they did it. It was surprising then. Now it has been old hat since about the time when the baby boomers elected Ronald Reagan. Young adults today are conservative, even if they think they are liberal. The country is bland. Weekend update is pointless because The Daily Show is better, and the Daily Show is a copy and evolutionary improvement on the original Weekend Update, which was invented by the original crew of the original SNL. Maybe SNL survives today because aging baby boomers sometimes watch it in the vain hope of occasionally being surprised and entertained by something. Funny how an originally non-conformist show, and it's producer, have been so mainstream for the past thirty years they seem like the fake creamer you get in those little plastic containers at a diner. Common and bland. And somehow always there.
    Go back and watch a lot of early episodes, very uneven. 1980-1986 was utter shit. The nineties got worse as key members left. It is only marginally watchable today. Worse, the show is predictable: you have the opening POTUS skit which is usually the highlight, a mediocre monologue by a host trying to look natural reading cue cards and plugging his shit, a somewhat funny fake ad, the obligatory fake game show bit when the writers have no ideas that week, a band you'll forget in a month, the weekend update (which is completely irrelevant because of The Daily Show), some odds and ends, a tv/movie parody featuring the host, the band playing a song you've never heard, an ironic skit about square middle America or hip-hop stars played by the one black guy, a quick time filler starring nobodies that dies a slow death because none of the writers wanted to bother putting in the effort for newbies, an ad-libbed repititve bit by one of the stars to stroke his ego and give him more air-time, and the farewell.
