    This sketch had so much potential but the writers dropped the ball. SO much to work with

      Jess Lyn
      True. I agree with you.

    • Simpel Jay says:

      Maybe it’s their format, it just isn’t working anymore, I think actors with memorized lines would go a lot better than people reading off a fucking screen for their dialogue. But yes, there was so much to work with it really is sad.

    • L.E. Munoz says:

      full nightmare? …. full nightmare? what? ……huh?

    • Sean Raines says:

      Yes, yes it could of been better. But, I’m glad it ain’t me lol. I think they got the servant people’s reaction right. Btw team johnny

    I don’t get the impression that anyone who wrote this was actually really watching the trial

    • outerrealm says:

      @Joe Schmo And your career and expertise in the TV comedy business is what exactly? Being in the entertainment business myself I can assure you that they do in fact keep up with anything that could be a source of material, and that’s especially true for the writers, who are solely responsible for the script. To them the news is an overflowing resource and not the least bit boring as their evil comic minds peruse the stories, seeking out the absurd and the twisted, from which to divine a livelihood. It’s actually absurd to suggest that these professionals are not up to date on events from which their material is derived. The writing might not be that good, but they’re paying attention. They can’t afford not to.

    • Glenn Williams says:

      @Joe Schmo If you are writing comedy for a real life situation, you have to watch it to poke fun at it. Otherwise it is just freaking fiction from end to end. You could just as well be writing about an imaginary drug hallucination then, because none of it would be real or even hint at real.

    • Bryon Miller says:

      @Joe Schmo Their careers revolve around making fun of current events. Watching part of the trial to which they’re making comedy that people can relate to is part of their job.

  3. Alexandru V. says:

    So nice to see SNL do skits even though all the writters are away on holiday.

  4. Calming Voice says:

    They could have literally just reenacted the part about the muffins word for word and it would have been funnier.

  5. Mimi Huisenfeldt says:

    How could they not refer to it as a “grumpy “ like Depp did????

    • Диана Певцова says:

      I don’t know if they were trying to not repeat what TikTok had already covered or what the hell, but they avoided a lot of seemingly fertile stuff.

  6. Janet Claire says:

    I sense that they were so terrified to do the wrong thing with this sketch and be criticised, that they dropped the ball on making it funny.

    • Luke Smith says:

      As they have done for the past 10 years

    • TheDesk says:

      Well, that’s what happens when cancel culture and censorship arises. Comedy goes out the window.

    • outerrealm says:

      I think that most of us who thought this was funny aren’t going to bother with comments. I don’t mean side splitting funny, just funny. Everyone’s sense of humor is different. These guys aren’t cutting edge comics like Norm MacDonald and Dana Carvey, but they don’t have to be. wasn’t the best skit in the world but I liked it. Posted it on Facebook.

    • Mr Wooden says:

      thats a good point

    • frosty says:

      ​@Диана Певцова you can’t steer clear of abuse component when you are making fun of an abused man whose demented wife defecated in his bed. That is an act of abuse.

  7. dillon says:

    Wow, a skit with so much potential and they blew it big time

    • Glenn Williams says:

      Just like 99% of their sketches for years. I don’t know why I even watch, but I am an eternal optimist. I keep hoping for something good. I am like Charlie Brown thinking Lucy will hold that damn football long enough to get a kick out of it.

    • Agent Disciple says:

      @Amber cuz this skit was terrible

    • Amber says:

      why do people keep saying that?

  8. openskies11 says:

    I see they were too frightened to have someone impersonate Amber Heard.

    • Tom Langan Realtor - Your Home in Carolina says:

      I guess they were too frightened to have someone impersonate Johnny Depp too? WTF was that?

  9. Laura Perez says:

    Yeahh not once did I laugh or even smile during that. The writers really did drop the ball.

    • deltafour1212 says:

      @cjg1029 You have more respect for every skit than I do. I expect them all to be not funny and shocked when one of them finally is. I finally just stopped watching SNL and among other reasons

    • Tasmanian Walrus says:

      @deltafour1212 Hell nah

    • cjg1029 says:

      @deltafour1212 nope there’s a lot of funny snl skits. I respect that not every one is going to be a hit. Especially disappointed with this one though

    • deltafour1212 says:

      Isn’t that with every SNL skit?

  10. daracamille says:

    I don’t think the writers for this skit have been watching clips from this trial because there is so much ridiculousness that they just missed. Amber’s mannerisms when she testifies, her incompetent defense, the exhausted judge. The poop in the bed is actually one of the LEAST hilarious parts!
