Prepare for more commercial parodies and fewer actual commercials on Saturday Night Live. Today, NBC announced there will be 30% fewer commercials during the sketch series in the 2016-2017 season.
The change comes after years of increasing advertisement time.
From SNL creator Lorne Michaels:
As the decades have gone by, commercial time has grown. Saturday Night Live. This will give time back to the show and make it easier to watch the show live.”
What do you think? Do you watch Saturday Night Live? Do you think the show will benefit from fewer commercials?
