Fox is comedy Gold - Jeanine Pirro drunk on air, Tucker and Sean ranting like maniacs, Gutfled failing at being funny, Don Jr on a coke high....

But the best is Fox and Friends - they take stupidity to a whole new level...

I guess someone's gotta watch it. Lol

Yea, all the unvaccinated in the ICUs - of course as you say, Jeanine, Sean, and Tucker all have THEIR vaccines....LOL....

Tucker and Sean ranting like maniacs, 

I don’t watch them, 

Interesting, I guess they're too left for you...well, someone has to watch Newsmaxx....

I don’t watch them, I’m guessing you do. They have the ear of 50% + of the voting population. It’s just corporate news. intelligent folks don’t need to cite these right and left propaganda talking heads.

The guy was brilliant - the off-kilter stream of conscious, the stilted cadence, the giant ego....

Though have to admit fox is also funny at times, tucker talking about nicky minaj's cousin, don jr on the high, Judge Jeanine being herself...... No surprise they call it an entertainment channel!!!!

Can't remember when I watched SNL last. But it may have been the time they roasted Hillary. (2007?)

SNL used to be great until Chris Farley’s untimely passing and after that, the show ceased to be funny. Living Colour and MAD TV were way better, definitely made up for the loss.

The heartburn with the trump fans is even funnier than SNL sometimes.

The last 4 years were wonderful and trump might make us last for some more time , so looking forward to it!!!

Watch 'Spitting Image' on YouTube.

Now that's biting satire.

They were in need of a replacement for Al Baldwin, who is no longer in any position to take potshots at anyone.

His impersonation of Trump was one of the best I have seen and I like Alec Baldwin's impersonation too. A tweet by Preet Bharara where he said this was the best impersonation ever drew my attention to the SNL opening skit.

SNL has it's hits and misses with it's skits and crews. I have been watching the show on and off since it first aired during the 70's. I thought Pete Davidson's "Chad" skit with Miley Cyrus and Elon Musk where he was trying to save Space X's Mars habitat was hilarious. There are skits that have fallen flat but I will continue to watch the show whenever I can with the assistance of a VPN.

If you want Trump to run again and possibly get elected, keep paying attention to him. Amazing how he still commands such energy.

That might happen with or with the help of SNL

Jeez. Still fixated on Orange? Surely Biden is comedy gold......

Trump finished off SNL. It doesn’t even qualify as a shadow of its former self.

Though nothing can beat Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer, that was a riot!!!!

Johnson is even better than Baldwin, the voice is uncannily similar to trump’s.

We know trump watches SNL and I am enjoying the heartburn it’s causing that vain man and his followers!!!

SNL was already in a rut for years but 2016 and TDS did a number on them. Remember when they used to have characters and skits that weren't just social commentary masked as comedy? Good times.

All the talk nowadays is about the opening sequence, monologue and Weekend Update. This show is a sketch comedy made famous by skits. I have tried to give SNL a try these past few years and I found the skits to be dry and unfunny. It also seems that there are more and longer commercial breaks which makes the skits less and a shorter amount of time. The cast is OK but I can't see them having huge careers after their SNL tenure like members of the past.

To remain ‘fair & balanced’, here’s some Kyle Dunnigan with impressions of Biden.

(SPOILERS! Pete Davidson cameos in some later episodes.)

Gotta admit, Johnson is way funnier and more talented than any Pete Davidson! (Yeah,… “Who??”)

Here’s more of the Johnson’s impressions, while he’s driving:

@non

Approval ratings go up and down by the day, but I think it was actually Trump that had a 35% approval at the beginning of November, 2017. Right now I think Biden is just under 40%. Not great for the day but let’s wait and look at the average later…

'SNL, for too long, was so interested in Trump

Our nation is going to a cliff.. Gas prices are doubled and inflation a 40 years high and going up and up every day. Biden's popularity is below 35% Kamala if 18% job approval. Are we living in Rome 1st century? enjoying the entertainment even after they lost the half of the territory the end is near..
