Phil Hartman was probably their last great comedic genius and he has been dead almost 20 years.
    I agree, as far as s.park goes, never was a simpson fan.
    Snl has only had a mediocre amount of my intention as well. It is the rise in popularity that has me interested now rather than the history of it. and i do have to admit that i am not making any claim of what will be or even might be.
    Americans do have some good comedians but they are for the most non political.

    If this was england or new zealand i would have a stronger argument because both have a good history of using political satire effectively. But neither have used a late night show as a platform either. So this is new ground that america is going for.
    Can snl do something? I hope so. One, because it is very effective and two because it will give us a good laugh which is probably needed badly in america right now.

    I wonder how the trump supporters react to this. Do they realise there is a danger or are they dismissive?

    Mockery can be very effective in moving peoples opinions and at the moment SNL is getting stronger.
    Vital? I don't know. I haven't watched SNL in 25 years and I'm still doing OK. But if it is entertaining people then there is nothing wrong with that.

    Is SNL all you guys have left after Trump destroyed the democratic party ? Do you really think SNL will last Trump's 7.99 years in office ??

    I do not even think america will last through his office if it is that long.
    But at least you have demonstrated that trump followers do have a sense of humor. Even if it is only for others to laugh at them.

    Can't wait fro this version of SNL after the 77 minute psychotic rambling of his press conference proving he is incompetent and lost. "Tear him up SNL"!!!!!!!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
