What do you think? Do you watch Saturday Night Live? Are you excited for the new season?
I have watched snl since 1975. I record and fast forward most sketches due to Trump bashing and Michael Che’s racism. I do not like weekend update any more. Keenan is terrific. Sad to say I prefer the reruns.
Cancel now! Run old Bugs Bunny cartoons instead. They’ll get better ratings.
