It's simply a hilarious show--funnier than anything else on TV, and the best thing about it is you get a whole 90 minutes of humor.
Believe it or not, many notable films, such as WAYNE'S WORLD and MACGRUBER were spun off of recurring SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE skits. Also, various musical comedy groups, such as The Blues Brothers and The Lonely Island, began their careers on SNL, as well.
As bizarre as it may be, on the list of things I really want to do before I die, visiting the 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City (the place where this show is regularly filmed) is around number ten. It is impossible to not love SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, and even though the 37th season will begin on September 24, 2011 (meaning the show has been on television for a long, long time), it remains hysterical.

For example, the episode with Tine Fey was amazing, and the episode with Dana Carvey wasn't (No, he is not funny). Most of the cast is pretty good, except Kenan Thompson. He is the farthest thing from funny that I have ever heard of. They always have him in drag, and he is never funny. Anyway, if you are a fan of this kind of thing, you will love it. SNL fans will also love this season.… Full Review »
