I find it kind of funny that most of the people who say "SNL hasn't been funny in years" are people that never even stop to watch it and give it a chance.
The reality is, that over the last 3 - 4 years there has been a lot of really talented young performers on the show, including Amy Poehler, Andy Sambergh, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig.
I never stay up to watch it because as I've covered ad-nauseum on the site, I'm not exactly a night owl. I do love the show though, so the lady and I usually DVR it and watch it on Sunday morning. I know, isn't that cute.
