Who are you talking to?

I've seen multiple articles with political commentators wondering if Larry David's impression of Bernie Sanders will help him win votes. This is so strange to me. It feels like a conversation between political analysts, discussing how this or that action will play with the voters. But presumably CNN and the Christian Science Monitor (which is a real mainstream news source, despite its weird name) have a few actual voters in their audiences. Or maybe that's not the case. Maybe everyone who reads the news already has fully formed opinions of the candidates, and we're all only interested in how people who don't read the news but do watch Saturday Night Live will react. We're all insiders now.

i'm stuck on the fact that people watch SNL and think it's at all funny. it's a horrible show, and it's almost never funny. and the unfunny stretches for endless minutes.

i am amazed that a) it's still on the air and b) it continues to bring in new generations of viewers.

we tried watching the Larry David bit and i had to ask fnord12 to turn it off, it was so awful.

I would have to respectfully disagree. Having watched SNL for decades, it's clear that there are talented people on the show. Just look at the Alumni - Steve Martin, Dan Akroyd, Chevy Chase, Will Ferrell, Etc. I could go on for pages and pages. All these actors have gone on to have very successful careers. Perhaps the show is an acquired taste. That's just my opinion.
