I'm not sure what you want Hollywood to do. More conservative actors? More conservative characters? More shows that preach conservatism?

You know, when I watch a sitcom, I generally don't give a rat's ass what political leanings the actors' characters have - or the actors themselves, for that matter. If they go extreme one way or another, it's funny, you know? Sitcom? Funny? It's not a propaganda campaign.

Now I get that the thread is SNL, but it strayed into Last Man Standing and Roseann and everything else. I will grant that SNL is somehow different because they do portray as pushy with it, but it's still a comedy sketch show. If you find it funny, good. If you don't, there might be something else you could find to occupy that segment of your life.

Outside of something portraying itself as News, and not being intellectually honest about what they say or skewing it, I don't much care. Its entertainment programming, and it shouldn't affect anyone's lives one way or another.

In response to who, though? I feel like I kind of started this "SNL is too liberal" discussion (in this thread) and my point was that it's too one sided to be funny, so I don't watch it.

The only one getting a little irrational is a certain guy who lives in the mountains and likes the Bucs.

Dude I had this conversation while having beer and wings. When I fly off the handle, you'll know it.

I'm sorry you don't like it when SNL makes fun of your guy, but it goes with the territory, I promise you.

I haven't immersed myself into the SNL are meanies to conservatives hysteria. Mostly because I really don't give a ****. It stopped being funny a good 2 decades ago or more, so I never watch it. I was only commenting on the incorrect part of your post.

Yeah, and I'm still struggling with what it is you want.

Trump is President. So as far as SNL is concerned, its his turn to get fucked with. The man has a 35% approval rating and practically writes the jokes for them because he's a total buffoon.

Are you asking them to stop picking on the slow kid?


Funny enough, i dont even think they mentioned Trump once this past week..


Alec must be shooting an epic film somewhere.


And it was funny to see Matt Damon trying to throw shade on BK, considering who his BFFs in Hollywood were for over the last decade... im sure Weinstein and Afleck got a good laugh. Lol

I think it's probably been 10 years since I saw SNl, actually probably more. I have no idea who is on it now. Or what the common characters are.

To me its always been a show aimed at under 30's.

I'm impressed that you could search for and post like 10 different pictures (last page) in the middle of wings.

Yep, you got me, I'm a yuuuge Trump guy.

No, my beef isn't them making fun of Trump. It's that I watched the show starting when I was little and continued until last season. It was always hit or miss but now it's completely miss because like I said, they go for cheers instead of laughs.

That was after wings.

But okay. If that's the way you feel about it. I just don't see it that way. Must be all that bias I'm carrying around.

Man, wish Selmon63 aka Hollywood was still around for this thread.

I agree with Kress. I'm a Jersey boy so was predetermined that I'm obsessed with Springsteen. I've seen him / E Street live over 20 times. Don't agree or support his ultra left views but doesn't affect my passion for his music and story telling.

I agree with everything here .. you can find something (or someone) entertaining without having to align with their beliefs or whatever.

Problem is (for me) ... SNL just isn't funny anymore. I did see the Damon skit and it was spot on, and I laughed. As a Conservative Christian who desperately can't stand Damon, I think that says it all.

I'd agree with this with one exception, I can't remember them ever going at Obama too hard.

Then again, I watch almost no TV. My TV viewing consists of Netflix Marvel shows, the Expanse and Lucifer. That's really about it over the last 2 years. Oh, and Rick and Morty.

I’m glad a topic about a sketch comedy show could be about liberals vs conservatives.

That’s refreshing in today’s climate. I’m happy we were able to break the mold of every topic being a political argument

This and they had a good Trump parody that wasn't just vitriolic. Darrell Hammond was a much better Trump.

But that was before they had to go all in on the hate bandwagon:

Single handedly saved SNL ... correctly stated .. Murphy was solid back in the day ... and there was never a "race" card.. he was just funny ...

The fact that Darrell Hammond just kills with his impersonation makes it all the more sad that instead of going with a pro, they toss Alec Baldwin out there to make an ass of himself.

Another example of political comedy done right:



Glad Murphy is coming back, a shame he's fallen off since his glory days, but I look forward to seeing him.
