TMZ, can I make a suggestion re: the spam comments...
Bring back the flag button, after so many hates/flags the comment is hidden. I'd also appreciate an edit button...please and thank you. Or for that matter, sign up with Disqus - they already have it.

SNL has so few rare moments of true recognizable humor now, I stopped watching regularly a long time ago. I guess only the yuppies find it funny now.


No humor in slavery skits. No humor in holocaust skits. Some history is too tragic and when humanity itself is affected negatively, it is NOT something to joke about.

Youphemism    

Most people simply don't understand that when they say a joke "went to far," that is exactly the same as saying the joke "wasn't funny enough."

People who disagree or fail to understand that assertion are unclear on how humor works.

If you are laughing your butt off then, by definition, the joke did not go too far.
