Saturday Night Live is a changing thing. It's not new like it was in the seventies, it's not a powerhouse like it was in the nineties, it may not be the training camp for NBC sitcoms anymore. Despite that, its still a big dog in the worlds of comedy and pop culture. Every time I hear or read " SNL was better when...", I cringe a little. As far as I can tell, this isn't true.

…it's becoming hateful. And the talent coordinator is seeing that there's a problem, because NBC is all about nice, and everything is going to be OK.

…making it the only streaming provider to now offer content from ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX, the "big four" of US broadcasting. Little by little they're getting the deals they need, they're moving in the right direction.

…and TV have replaced HBO, AMC, Showtime, NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, Comedy Central, Tower Music, Amoeba Records, etc., etc., etc. Pretty much every company in entertainment distribution which made money from me in the past has lost me to Apple.
