Saturday Night Live is NOT getting worse

It seems like every time I try to talk to someone about new SNL sketches, they're always like,"Yeah, I don't really watch it anymore, now that Mike Meyers and Adam Sandler and Chris Farley gone,". I understand that there are a lot of really really funny people who are no longer on the show, but I've got to be honest with you, the people who are still on the show are almost MORE funny than any other line up that they've had. Seriously. The writers are writing way better sketches too. Oh, boo hoo, Will Ferril and Tracy Morgan and Chris Katan left, have you seen ANY new sketches since they've left? Really funny stuff, people.

A friend of mine once said,"Well who's on there now?" Guess what, there's still an actor thats been there for eight years. It's Darrell Hammond. That dude is HILARIOUS! They've also got Jeff Richards, another long-time veteran. Lets see who else, Maya Rudolf, Tina Fey, Horatio Sanz, Chris Parnell, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Seth Meyers. Thats not all. If you've seen SNL in the past three years or so, you may have seen a couple of guys there who you didn't recognize but were really funny (if you didn't think they were funny there is seriously something wrong with you). Their names are Fred Armison and Will Forte. I'm not joking, these guys will be legends someday. Absolutely hilarious comics, these guys. And the two newest featured artists on SNL include KENAN THOMPSON, from Nickelodeon's original line up of "All That", and Finese Mitchell(still getting his feet wet).

You can't just take my word for it, watch the freakin show! You won't be disappointed or un-intertained. SNL is not getting worse. Dare I say it, its funnier now than it ever was. Not even joking guys, just watch it.
