Tim Meadows

'I Will NEVER Watch SNL Again'

Tim Meadows WENT OFF on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend -- saying he'll NEVER WATCH THE SHOW AGAIN after they excluded him from a throwback sketch.

Meadows -- who appeared on the show from 1991 to 2001 -- swore off the show after watching the "Brasky Bar Guys" bit ... a reoccurring sketch he often appeared in during his time with the show.

Meadows tweeted: "They did Brasky without me" ... adding, "Not even a 'hey would you want to come to do one line and bring your kids to see the 5 directions...?' Nothing... Wow..."

"I will never watch SNL again."

Meadows also explained why he thinks he's persona non grata -- and it traces back to his movie, "The Ladies Man."

"Sorry the ladies man bombed," Meadows wrote ... "If it would have done better they wouldn't treat me like a red-headed step child."

After the rant, Tim cooled down and seemed to back off his comments ... saying, "I'm not mad at the show. I know what it takes to produce those sketches in a short amount of time. I talked to a friend on the show who said it WAS a last minute sketch."

"I acted like a baby. I'm happy for all of my friends success and will always be grateful and proud to have been a part of SNL. That being said don't forget to see 'Anchorman 2' coming soon to a theater near you."

Fun Fact: "The Ladies Man" bombed so bad it took SNL 10 years to make another movie.

Can't you just not watch for the same reason most of us stopped watching a couple of decades ago? Because it hasn't been consistently even 'okay' for that long and consistently funny for several years longer.

Anyone who knows real comedy does not watch SNL anymore anyways. They stopped being funny in the late 90's.

I saw him in an interview recently and he complained about a lot of stuff... namely PILLOWS. I had no idea he was such a jerk... maybe that is why they didn't call him back.

We would would also like to let you know in advance, just so there will be no confusion, we will also be accidentally not inviting you to any other future sketches. And please don't bother to stop by with the kids, security has been alerted.
