    There was an article on this skit in a British newspaper today. I used to
    watch SNL but drifted away as time went on over the years. I was surprised
    at the violence represented in it almost endorsing or fantasizing on the
    use of voilent retaliation on your foes. I do not remember seeing this
    type of humor before on SNL. Sure there was physical slapstick comedy
    started by Chevy Chase for use in SNL. There was an article a year ago in
    US News about loss of viewers for SNL. It reached a high in 1979 or 1980
    with 38% when I used to watch it every week and now something like 12%. I
    can see why it has lost so much. The show is not funny and it appeals to a
    smaller and more select audience. I prefer to watch Fallon, Kimmel, or
    Ellen DeGeneres. Their skits are much better.

    This wasn’t funny…Bobby Moynihan’s first reaction shot was the best part
    of the whole thing.
