It's a hit & miss thing at best, for sure, but there are some new/recent repeat/carry-on characters/sketches that can tickle...

...like that idiotic 'you look like a rabbit' couple

...and the hyperactive kid with Rick, her stepdad

...or the one-up woman

What are some of your favorite shows/segments, c'mon let's reminisce a bit.

Let's not forget The Joe Pesci Show:

And the classic West Side Story parody:

It appears that this season is bound to be as shit-tastic as last year. Yeesh.

Any show that can't even let Will Forte and Bill Heder be hilarious on a constant basis is a broken show. And the show's increasing dependence on recurring characters is breaking it more.

That said: Vincent Price's Thanksgiving Special 1958. GENIUS.

I find myself flipping back and forth during the show, until something strikes me funny bone. The Seth Rogen show was pretty average...can't wait for that Jon Bon Jovi hosting gig...no, really...

Confused

I taped it this weekend, and then Foo Fighters only got to play once! I taped an hour and a half show for five minutes.

I clicked over to a "Seinfeld" rerun the minute Richie Sambora started flubbing his lines, went back a while later, something about New Jersey...went to bed.

Sad

It's something I watch the first five minutes of, and then get bored and switch the channel. Unless of course a favorite presenter/preformer is on, that'll entertain me an extra 20 minutes.

I used to be a loyal viewer but now I usually only watch when I really like the host or musical guest...

I used to watch it as a kid, haven't in probably the last 5-6 years...not really even to see what the episode is about. i sometimes watch the reruns when they had adequate and actually funny actors. It's just not funny anymore. hasnt been in a long time

I've changed my tune since Tina Fey, and then Amy Poehler, left...
.
.
Has there ever been such a gender-unbalanced cast?
.
.
Kristen Wiig's still on so why can't they at least inject some 'Penelope' skits or the 'Two A-Holes...' with her and Jason Sudeikis?
.
.
I can't stand those MacGruber pieces!
.
.
I rarely watch it anymore...
