Saturday Night Live has sold out

I swear, I saw more commercials on Saturday Night Live than skits.

SNL Original Cast

In 1975, when Saturday Night Live was launched, we couldn’t get out of our chairs when a commercial came on. We didn’t know if there was a parody afoot or if it was a legit commercial. Back then, bathroom breaks were rare and VCRs hummed in the night in case we missed something.

Last night, I spent more time in the kitchen grabbing a snack to stay awake than watching SNL. I rarely watch SNL these days, but I decided to give it a look, for old times sake. But the amount of commercials, legitimate ones, just bummed me out.

Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in
