All the sketches are so lazy. It's like they're not even trying.
I think the problem is they have too many disparate talents operating in their own little silos.
The show was best (most cohesive, most consistently entertaining) when it had a core of people who were highly trained in sketch/improv and used to working as a group and rescuing flat writing. The original cast, the 1985-90 cast, the 1995 cast, Amy Poehler.
Right now they seem to have a bunch of people who are standups or did random comedy nights in Brooklyn or online videos. They're not clicking as a troupe. And the political satire is just so weak, outdated, off the mark.

I know I'm in the minority, but the one person on the show that makes me laugh is Michael Che. And Colin is okay too in the Weekend Update sketches. Though if they are the head writers, they obviously give the best stuff to themselves as the rest of the show always suck. I'm really tired of Kate McKennon too. I think she's far more limited than someone like Cecily Strong, but even the best of them can't do much with shitty writing.
And the 80-81 season looks brilliant next to this one. The one sketch that I remember from that was someone doing Irene Cara running around the building singing, "Same! I'll sing this song forever! I'll sing this song till I die!"

Carrey has turned out to be a huge misfire, Issa was pitifully neglected, and the writing has been sloppy and unimaginative. SNL is sinking to a new low.

Issa, a great comic actress and good writer, pretty much had nothing to do. Wasted.
Jim Carey was 98% rubber-faced Jim Carey skit, 1% Biden, and 1% lost in the ozone. Not even remotely funny or relevant.
Bieber was lip synching, wasn't he?

I think they should stay away from newbies during this time of adjustment and transition and pull out their regulars, especially those five timers. Hell, they’ve got Baldwin, Carrey and Rudolph on retainer, just have one of them be the host.

Just wanted to add to the Cecily Strong love. Not only is she one of the funniest cast members, male or female, doing some great characters but she's also very attractive and has an excellent singing voice although the show hasn't done any musical sketches in some time. Surprised she hasn't been had much air time in the recent shows.

I love Chloe Fineman - she always really commits to each sketch and goes for it. She can play anything. Kristen Wiig had that talent - you could play young, old, pretty, deformed. I thought Kate would be Kristen's successor on the show and I thought she was very strong 4 years ago with Hillary, Kellyanne, and had a wide range. Maybe with success she can be more choosy with her sketches. If so, she does feel so one note as many others have said. Cecily really has proved to be an amazing asset. I love Maya, but her Kamala is so much weaker now that her primaries Kamala. Maybe she has to pull back a bit more. Also Kamala is the VP, so she is not out there as much as Joe so there isn't much organic material to work with, highlighting the writers weakness. I actually like the women who was posted as unattractive. I think she's pretty funny. I also like the black woman that's a regular - both were in the ebay commercial, which I think was my favorite.

I think Jim Carrey's Biden has too much energy. Biden is far more calm that Carrey is showing.
I think that made a mistake by not putting Justin Bieber or Chance the Rapper in any of the sketches, as they're both really funny.

I think the only reason the show continues to air is because the alums - many of which have huge careers - keep it going by keeping it seem relevant. After all, SNL MUST be funny, if Murphy, Fey, Myers, Poehler, Fallon, Sandler, Davidson, Strong, McKinnon etc were/are on it!
Along those same lines, it's one of the surest way to have a long, successful career (whether deserved or not.) So it will always seem more important than it should to the comedy world.

No way can I spend the next 4 years watching Jim Carrey as Biden. I would rather poke needles in my eyeballs. He's not funny!
And unfortunately since doubling down is the thing these days, I am sure the next few weeks will be even more Carrey on steroids shoved down our throats. I would be nice just for once for someone to say we heard all of you and agree we fucked up with Carrey. Look for a change in comedian in our upcoming skits. But no they wont to that, they will push Carrey on us and drive everyone away instead.
Carrey is a rich man, his humor is past his prime. Cut him lose and find someone better. The only think hurt will be his ego.

It all seems so...dated.

Kyle Mooney needs to go. Painfully unfunny.
Beck is great.
Bowen and Chloe are nice additions.
On the whole, the show is a bloated, self-satisfied mess.

They have such a huge cast. And there is another lady who looks like Aidy. Im fine with most of the cast, but Kyle and Pete are useless. Melissa is pretty useless and a big letdown, great mimic but bad actor and comedienne who smiles through the punchline. Chloe pretty much is the better Melissa. Beck, Kenan, Kate, Aidy and Cecily play the older non gen z people— if they leave, who is gonna play the old guys? Everybody who’s left looks like they are out of college. Bowen has found his niche, he is ok and makes the most of what he gets. Ego and Chris are generally good. Heidi is generally ok, but limited.
