and his ability to make me laugh declines more and more
This skit is fine, in every sense of the word. Unfortunately that seems to be the case for the entire show...
was the March Sadness at the beginning supposed to rip on MSU?
These are always pretty good skits. Maybe I'm racist, maybe I'm not.
Maybe I should get off your lawn.
The entire thing is not a rip on MSU, I really think they just arbitrarilly picked MSU as the setting for this show. The March Sadness thing was about "Jeremy, who goes home every weekend." I laughed at that one.
One the main writers, Michael Patrick O'Brien, is a UM grad. Some people complained on Twitter that the graphics & letters at the very beginning were in maize and blue. If it was a knock on MSU, pretty subtle.

Look at this gem that was written after the last MSU SNL skit:
(Paragraph directly under the video)
If he's one of the main writers of this consistent crap, then every single show is a knock on UM.
Does that mean that most of the MSU fans here married UM grads?
I immediately saw this skit on snl and couldn't wait to come to your board to see what you would say. I must say the skit was absolutely horrendous and had no idea what it had to do with MSU, I was even highly intoxicated and drew no laughs. What were ya'lls thoughts.
Horrendous, like the rest of SNL for the last couple of decades. Just awful.
Did the same thing, I've heard of the skit a bunch of times, but haven't seen it. Pretty dumb, just like all their other skits. I don't know how people can watch snl, it's just not funny.
That was a chink in the armor for SNL!
I used to love SNL, but since about 5 years ago I feel it has just had its steady drop. Back in the 90's though it was just phenomenal.
Normally it's pretty easy for me to find something funny in a skit. By "something" I mean anything that I find remotely humorous. I didn't find anything in that skit that was really humorous and I really didn't understand where the joke was supposed to be. There was nothing in the news about that was there? They didn't even go anime geeky or something that would have at least been funny laughing at a "nerd". I really did not get all the MSU references, but for the most part I was glad that we got the show it was cool to see the Logo in the background of the "professor" talking.
I've been watching since the early 90's and think this cast is as good as any I've seen. Early 2000's were the best. Other than Phil Hartman I could take or leave the 90's casts. Haven't watched the show yet but I presume there was another Japanese fun pop show time hour or whatever?
The last time they did this sketch we went on a fifteen game win streak
I think this sketch is mocking WKAR, which MSU owns and broadcasts. I've seen some weird programming on WKAR, especially later in the evening.
Or I could be totally wrong and this is just a stupid sketch.
Agreed, the "March Sadness" line was the funniest line of the whole skit, and that was in the first 10 seconds, should have stopped there.

Anyone remember when SNL used to be funny? Like fifteen years ago. I loved the Spartan cheerleaders. Ferrell and Cherri Oterri?
SNL is either really good or really bad, has almost always been that way. It kinda depends on the host, if they are good then the show will be good. It is funny how everyone says it sucks now, I've been watching regularly since 1990 and people told me it sucked back then. I am sure in five to ten years there will be people who say "remember when bill hader/jason sidekus/kristen wigg/andy sandberg was on SNL, those were the days"
The main reason it's bad is because they punted for 4 years on Obama. He's had more to make fun of than anyone, but they refuse to do it. When you pass on great comedy because it doesn't fit your political ideology, you know it's the end of the show. I hope they cancel it.
