    BTW: I think its good SNL pokes fun at folks, sure it's left leaning and Trump's WH has gotten more than their share, but I also think they need to get over it.

    All sides gotta learn to take a joke and roll with the punches.

    Rosie is another story..................

    Once upon a time SNL was a comedy show and it was funny, now it is just liberal propaganda.

    If nothing else it ought to lead to some fun Trump tweets! Trump's election has been gold for comedians all over the world! Certain administrations are just easier and more fun to poke fun at than others. Clinton, W Bush, and now Trump were full of comedy gold, Obama was ok, same with HW Bush

    No conservatives just seem to have lost their sense of humor.

    She's just trying to get a piece of the fanfare about Melissa McCarthy's impersonation of Sean Spicer but McCarthy is immeasurably funnier than O'Donnell, who isn't funny at all, except maybe to a simple liberal.

    Even without the political lean, it has become just stupid. SNL has not made me laugh in a long time.

    Hate to tell you this, but it's a sign you're getting older. Seems like every age group has made that same comment over the years, usually saying that the group of performers from their high school/early adult lives were "the only funny ones."

    SNL used to have some very creative humor and sketches where now all they do is mock conservative political figures. Baldwin doing Trump is actually funny but they're wearing it out. Well before you were born, SNL was much more popular than it is now and it didn't have as much of a political slant.

    Chevy Chase was only a part of the SNL cast for the first season. I remember a number of skits in which he lampooned then president Ford. He was pretty brutal, and often played on Ford tripping as he deboarded (is that a word?) Air Force I.

    I later learned that Chase really dislike Ford and is a hard core democrat.

    There was also some skits aimed at President Carter when it was learned he suffered from hemorrhoids. Dan Akroyd, another liberal democrat, played the role of Carter. I remember one skit in which he was packing for a trip. He opened his suitcase to show his wife that he it packed full of Preparation H.

    Dana Carvey did a great HW Bush. Hartman did a really funny Bill Clinton for a bit when he was first running for president. I can't stand Baldwin, but you have to give the man some credit. His Trump impersonation is funnier than heck. I now call China, "Gina". (giggle)

    His Schweddy Balls skit is a classic too.

    I would watch Rosie O'Donnell jump into an active volcano, but not much else.
    Anyway, she vowed she'd leave the U.S. if Trump was elected. Whassa matter, nobody want to take in a foul piece of excrement like her? :roll2: I guess her and the rest of those Hollyweird has been actors that vowed to leave if Trump was elected were just acting, or just have no courage to match their convictions?:uhm:

    You mean SNL is not filmed in Canada? Does Baldwin commute from Canada every week?

    They found out that you can not just move to another country. Like people do here, other countries are not near as welcoming as the US

    I watched it from 1974 and a few years after. Those were the best years for SNL. After John Belushi died the show started going downhill, and I didn't really find it very funny anymore. Eddie Murphy and a few others gave it some life for a while, but after the Dana Carvey episodes there wasn't much to it anymore.

    Belushi was hilarious. I found myself laughing so hard sometimes, my stomach would hurt.

    I don't know abou that. I have the first four seasons of SNL in my iTunes library and they are still as funny as I remember them being. I've tried watching recently and it's unbearable...
    You're just proving me right....

    You're reinforcing my point, they always had skits poking fun at political figures but they were far fetched and just a small percentage of their show. Now the political skits are the greater majority of the show and try to make a statement rather than look for a laugh. In the seventies and eighties, a lot of the county was watching SNL weekly and now I'd be hard pressed to find anyone that could even tell me when it comes on. (And yes I do have quite a bit of contact with young people.)

    Eddie Murphy had some hilarious (delirious?) characters. Tyrone Green, Velvet Jones, Mr. White.

    This is too funny. A newspaper in the Dominican Republic accidentally used Alec Baldwin's picture instead of Trump's...
