News & Interviews for Saturday Night Live: Season 42
Saturday's "SNL" was a good start for the season and a triumph for Alec Baldwin.
But all this is meaningless when asking whether this was a good year for the show creatively. Because if we look at SNL in terms of how groundbreaking and funny it was this season, "spectacular" is not a word that comes to mind.
Saturday Night Live Season 42 kicked off with a super-charged, finely-tuned episode that felt more like mid-season than a premiere.
This episode definitely feels like a finale, insofar as there are a lot of excellent sketches that may have been held back for this week and a few calculated risks that pay off.
Season 42 of Saturday Night Live had some undeniable high points, but it often felt like a case of style over substance.
