This show is not good
13 August 2005 | by dawgfan1982See all my reviews

I went from being obsessed with this show to wanting to stick a knife in my eye because it is so horrible. I rarely crack a smile when watching this show, which is really depressing because I used to be in stitches. It's way too political now. I'm all for a good political joke every now and again, but it seems like every other sketch has to do with current events and politics. Entertainment is supposed to be a break from reality, not remind you of it.

Lindsay Lohan hosted TWICE last season. I don't want to see that teenage yo-yo twice. And Kate Winslet? She's about as funny as my left ankle, plus her accent grates on my nerves. Bring back Walken, or something.

If I ran the show I'd fire everyone except Poehler.

Hate me if you want, but this crap sucks.
