    Instead of reruns, which don't get nearly the same ratings as the live shows, SNL should simply broadcast the entire dress rehearsal for the show they were going to rerun. I think that would be interesting, and get me to tune in where I wouldn't otherwise.

  • MeatHook

    Oh, no new SNLs.  I guess for the new years they're crying in their milk over Trump now that all of their attempts to stop him failed.  Liberal tears are delicious!

    This reminds me of a set change I did when I was in the crew of a local production. 3 huge platforms with tall walls, set pieces & props all over it. Thankfully we could wheel them offstage instead of breaking them down like they did here, but it was still like a ticking bomb to get them off before the curtain went out.

    Here is the practical guide to surviving the Trump presidency.. Wait for it.. Crawl up into a ball and bring plenty of food and a diaper because it's going to be a long 4 years. You will need other supplies: 1400 boxes of Kleenex.. 400 gallons of ice cream (your favorite flavor) a very very sad fucking novel and a shit load of self help books. Actually, you're going to need to double everything because it will be 8 years instead of 4. Then try to understand the smugness that is Rachel Maddow.. see if you can see through your own shitty party to understand why the democrats are literally dissolving in front of us. Part 1 of a 3 part saga.

    Part 2 of the survival guide includes an introspective look at why the Democrats thought that open borders would be a great thing, when they clearly took jobs away from already poor Americans, let un-vetted refugees in, who are now ravaging Europe, with crime wave and gang rape statistics, off the charts.. then there's the whole running over Europeans with buses thing + mass slaughter of innocent people on a weekly basis. We take a look at the trade deficit with the world and ask ourselves why we let China have all our manufacturing, all while we double our nations debt by $11 TRILLION to $22 TRILLION. We go further into the U.S. funding of ISIS, and take a good hard look at the reasons Obama felt it beneficial to fund the rebels, (now ISIS) to foster a regime change in a country that isn't ours. We dive deep into Obamacare and ask ourselves "did our government really just tell us that we had to pay for something (or we get fined), that costs $4,600 to cover free healthcare for their illegal immigrants?" A sane reporter rebounded with.. "Wait.. they are doing this all for votes so they stay in power??!!!" and the masses decried "but we were programmed to hate Trump!" and the Crying Games which are now known throughout the world as the new Hunger Games began.. The end.. of the beginning.. of the end. Part 2 of a 3 part saga.

    SNL should have made the unmade Sprockets movie adaptation in the first place and the other old released SNL films like It's Pat and Roxbury Night deserved making lots of money at cinemas.

  • George Jones
    George Jones 4 месяца назад

    SNL TV show should been cancelled back in 2000 and SNL movies should have continued in the first place, Adam Sandler should have turned his SNL character like Lunch Lady Land and Opera Man and Hanukkah Song into movies back in the 2000s decade between 2002 and 2004.

  • George Jones
    George Jones 4 месяца назад

    SNL, go back to making movies based on your sketches and characters, Stuart Saves His Family never deserved to fail at the box office back when it hit theaters in 1995, That movie never deserved to be forgotten, it deserved a remake movie just like Total Recall wad remade.
