It's been a while since SNL (Saturday Night Live) has been funny... And even longer since it was able to be both funny and decent.

Studio C is way funnier and actually pulls it off without resorting to trash.

What is it? Is it on BBC? I've never heard of it. SNL has actually had some funny stuff in it in recent months. Not TONS of funny stuff, but some. Plus, I think the women on there now are the best I've seen in years and years, maybe going all the way back to Jane Curtain, Gilda Radner and Laraine Newman

It could be I've just watched exceptionally bad episodes of SNL - but when I've watched, I see women flaunting their fake boob jobs, men pretending to be gay to get ratings and other not-funny unclassy attempts at theater, for the most part, with a few exceptions.

SNL used to be funny without resorting to trash.
They say that if you're really funny, there's no need to resort to cussing and other filth.
Your work stands on it's own.

over the years there have been many sketch comedy shows that have been way funnier than SNL; SCTV, In Living Color, Mad TV, etc.; but they didn't have the staying power that SNL has

So True!
I've watched from the beginning and this is by far, one of the best SnL women cast in the history of the show.
Now if those writers could just get them some better material.

It airs on BYU T.V.
