After barely watching it for at least the past ten years, I've been tuning in more frequently lately, mainly to see guest-hosts I like (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peter Dinklage). I have to say that I like the two guys they have doing the news segment right now.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I'm the opposite, i don't think they're that funny.

To see if it will get better. I have to give it a chance.

Chappelle was funny on SNL. Though the crowd's reaction to his stand up was something of a nervous laughter. I don't know why but I think I'd be a little uneasy around him, kinda worried he'd jump on something i'd say. Nothing to prove it, just a feeling I get.

I keep hearing about SNL these days. So much of what I've watched on Netflix lately (A Futile and Stupid Gesture, The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee) is at least tangentially linked. Its history interests me, but the bits I've seen lately lead me to believe I'm not missing much. The satire is broad and the delivery is shrill.

Anyway - now there's this:

- anyone seen it?
