its been like this since the show started, the cast evolves and there are periods where people just call it saturday night dead, and as usual it always picks up and sometime later they say its awesome again.
That's funny, because I thought every "period" before this had many good points. Seems to me the only funny part of the new SNL cast is Horatio Sanz. Not because he's funny, but because he breaks character so often. And Darrell Hammond's impressions are unfunny and inaccurate. Tina Fey is head writer and it shows. She isn't funny. Robert Smigel alone isn't enough to save this show, and he's been writing for SNL since 1985.
And Conan wasn't a cast member he was a writer.
SNL, Simpsons, and MADtv are no longer funny. They're beating a dead horse. They should have taken a cue from In Living Color and quit while they were ahead.
EDIT: Actually I like some of Hammonds impressions, such as Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Ted Koppel, and Cris Matthews. But more recent ones like Schwarzenegger, Trump, and Cheney aren't as funny to me.
Robots, machines, mechanical beings
Automatic and synthetic, we have the means
To take control of this planet and the human race
With our electronic rhythms and the Armageddon Bass
