Default SNL season finale was a mishmash of everything it needs to fix

https://www.theatlantic.com/entertai...ason-44/589789

The Paul Rudd-hosted Season 44 finale should've been special. Instead, says David Sims, "there was the same slightly lackluster mix of topical material and unmemorable goofy sketch writing that has defined the show in recent years. SNL has survived for so many decades by knowing when to pull the trigger on a revamp, and (Alec) Baldwinís dismal karaoke work (Saturday) night was the surest sign yet that something needs to change. It was about as laugh-free as the cold open of the previous yearís finale, which also involved Trump, his sons, and Mueller in a Sopranos spoof, mocking the idea that whatever resolution was promised from the special counselís investigation might never arrive. A year later, theyíre all singing 'Donít Stop Me Now' together, rather than 'Donít Stop Believiní,' but the message remains the same." Sims adds: "Baldwin probably should move along, as his heart really hasnít been in the role since Trump won the presidency. A reshuffle is also badly needed behind the 'Weekend Update' desk, where Colin Jost and Michael Che have never quite managed to distinguish themselves after five seasons on the job. Some of the other sketches in (Saturday) nightís episode pointed to opportunities that SNL let go stale over the years."

I hate to sound like a downer but, I think SNL ran it's course a long time ago. It's long past time to pull the plug on it IMO.

SNL needs to do something better when show kicks off its 45th Season this autumn. Too Bad the 44th Season Finale of SNL did not work out as it expected.

I enjoyed it the last few weeks. Adam, Emma, and Paul were good hosts. Many funny sketches.
