    And so frightfully inventive.

    Bull. During the Myers/Carvey/Hartman years, such was not occurring.

    The Narnia thing was pretty funny. By this season's standards it was absolute genius.

    The Natalie Portman rap was pathetic.

    Jesus, dude, we've been getting NBC for fucking ever. Thanks for catching up to 1979.

    Agree with MadTV props. More skit/character driven, more edgy, unlike SNL which just tries to damn hard to be hip and cool. MadTV folks are great with the characters and occassional impersonations.

    SCTV was light years better than SNL. Unlike SNL, SCTV skits had a beginning, middle and most importantly, an end. Without an applause sign there would be no decent ending to 95% of the SNL skits.

    MadTV has been great for years. Love the reruns on Comedy Central.

    Wanna know how bad SNL sucks? ... Horatio Sanz is in the cast. Enough said.

    Forgot. This is supposed to be an inventive show, not a funny show. Our bad. ::)

    Sorry, but SNL is neither. It's had its moments through the years, but if it takes a constant infusion of new talent to keep it alive, then what happens when you no longer have anyone funny enough to keep it off life support?

    And before anyone makes the claim of ... "It's been around for so many years so they must be doing something right," just remember there were like, what, six or seven Police Academy movies? Doesn't mean any of them beyond No. 1 was funny or good.

    SNL goes through cycles. The late 80s and early 90s were absolutely hysterical, as were shows from maybe three or four seasons ago. However, the nicest I can say about it is that right now SNL has its moments. Just moments. But Lazy Sunday is definitely one of them.

    Overall, no. But that "Lazy Sunday" thing was hilarious. And to say "yeah, but it wasn't inventive" just seems stupid.
