This show has been dying for a few years now. Ever since Tina Fey left. The writing for this show is incredibly bad. The cast members don't know how to carry a sketch. The Will Ferrel years were great(great cast members). This show has just fallen so far in recent years,it's hard to watch. Sat. Night Live can't afford to lose any good cast members,because they haven't replaced the one's they've lost since Ferrel and Jimmy Fallon left. I missed it on Sat. night , sounds like a good one.

@R.Harris: My favorite Kristin Wiig performance was when she played an early 80s fitness instructor on a Weekend Update sketch. Hilarious. But you're right, she really brightened the screen with her characters whenever she appeared in any scene. She will be sorely missed on that show, but I'm not worried because Michaels has an uncanny, decades-long streak of finding new talent, even if there's small lulls in-between finds.

@Joe: it's true, the show has sorely missed Fey, and this season wasn't that great, bar Wiig, Weekend Update and some Samberg stuff. But again, I think that it will pick itself back on its feet as it always has. I remember the mid-late 90s was a really bad period for them, everyone thought the show was done for then, and then the "F's" (Fallon, Fey, Farrell) were hired and it was up and running again.

I don't get it. What do you mean?

Wiig was very versatile, she appeared in many more sketches than the others, and was very talented in them. I didn't really like the neurotic characters she played (found them very annoying), but even for those I could see that it took a special actress to pull them off.

People have been saying "SNL is going downhill" since as far as I can remember, and yet its still here, in its 37th year, releasing another new soon-to-be star into the world. Everybody has their favorite era/decade/cast members, sure not all the sketches are going to be classic, but to say the show is going downhill just because you dont "get" the sketches is cliched.

IMO I really hope Bill Hader becomes a star he's absolutely hilarious in everything he's in and his impressions are spot on, Andy Samberg's Digital Shorts have inarguably brought new life to the show, for a while you couldn't go with out hearing Dick In A Box or I'm On A Boat from everyone including non-fans of the show, and as far as the new cast members Jay Pharoah is going to be something special, if only they gave him more sketches...

How about a new tour with Mick Jagger (vocals), Jeff Beck (guitar), Steve Jordan (drums) and Tab or Pino on bass? I'd go see that in a heartbeat. :)

R. Harris says:
yes you're probably right. If history shows us anything about SNL, it's that the show just keeps going, re-inventing it's lineup and re-making itself relevant. From all reports Michaels may be a fascist to deal with personally, but he obviously knows what he's doing with his franchise.
And it seems that Jagger is positioning himself for another new phase in his already long career. More power to him (and he'll need it).

Good points on Jagger and SNL. Jagger did join with Beck for a blues show at the White House that really rocked. Maybe they could combine catalogues and go on tour with a crack band, and play a few personal favorites. Both are really vital and still exciting musically.

SNL for a while had the political satire mojo each week even in Washington they wanted to know what they would say. They are now in a building time. But the current cast is great. Not every show will be great and ups and downs is part of it. Sometimes i just don't care about the guest or musical act, more my age than anything else. SNL seems to be a institution that can grow and bend with time, and therefore last?

After 37 years I think SNL has run out of steam. The show was always hit and miss,even in it's best years. They have a laundry list of writers who come up with nothing but garbage anymore. The Spanish show where everybody dances, the woman with deformed hands,the family that kisses everyone they meet. Please give me a break and hire a team of WRITERS that know comedy. And hire cast members who know how to act and do a TV show. There, I feel better now.

It was refreshing to see a band use real amplifiers and actually play live for a change. It used to always be live back when it started, until we got into the lip sync era. What is the point of performing to a recording? It's absurd. Some of the skits were funny, some were'nt but overall a little better than usual. Jam band groupie dancing segment was PFF. Jeff Beck tore off some licks, but the song itself was pretty weak, and an opportunity squandered IMO.

It was an excellent show. The karoke of start me up and Sympathy FTD was very funny. That group: arcade fire that played with Jagger was dynamite. Jagger hadnt played with a band that competent in nearly 40 years.

Mr. Jumps, obviously you haven't seen the Stones live the last 20 years.

And Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikes are all leaving the SNL.

I saw the stones on steel wheels tour. Also saw them on emotional rescue tour which was better. Couldnt hold a candle to their early 70s period when they were truly the worlds greatest rock roll band. I havent followed arcade fire but based on their SNL appearance they are first rate musicians with enough dynamicism to play alot of different stuff well.

Hopefully SNL can put together great live shows like that in the future. Remember when Ashely simpson was performing SNL and the lip synch directive went down? That was awesome in a different way. In fact I think I will go watch that on you tube.
