One of TV’s most revered traditions is to proclaim how Saturday Night Live is dying/dead/not funny anymore/hitting a slump/irrelevant. I’ve watched a fair amount of SNL this season, and while it’s not always great, I feel like it’s been pretty solid overall. Most episodes have 2-3 sketches that are pretty good, which, given previous seasons, is more than you can hope for. Of course it helps that the current administration is rife with material. Case in point, the above video of a typical Sean Spicer press conference. I wouldn’t say it’s appointment television, but rumors of the show’s demise have once again been greatly exaggerated.
