    And yes, we can already see the Nat X skit where he complains that not only does the white man only let him have a 15 minute show, they only allow it on the air once every 21 years…

    Chris Rock AND Prince, YES! And, I haven’t been a regular SNL viewer in a l-o-n-g time.

  3. Ross says:

    They keep getting great hosts, but that hardly seems to matter when most of the writing is so bad. I’d like to see a show with more than two good sketches.

    • Agreed. I would rather watch Leave it to Beaver. I used to make sure I was home every Saturday night to watch SNL, but no more after today. The show always had a good hour of funny skits and 30 minutes of maybe funny stuff. Now the first skit is not good enough to crack a smile and hard to sit still and watch 90 minutes of bad to worse. Who is writing this stuff, Donald Trump?

  4. Tran says:

    Very happy to see Chris Rock back on SNL come November 1st. This isn’t the first time he hosted SNL but as I recall he did the first time during Season 22.

  5. FtheFrey says:

    I approve! Can’t wait.

  6. I would not be worried about SNL. The funniest thing tonight, 11/1/14, was Prince. Prince was hilarious and was not even trying to be. The rest of the show was hum drum and probably why NBC is airing older shows before the crap they put out now. SNL is dead and there is no life for SNL after 40. SNL was cutting edge comedy and now the show should just be cut. SNL is now as funny as reruns of Gilligan’s Island; actually Gilligan’s Island is funnier.
