“Saturday Night Live” opened the season stale with Alec Baldwin coming back doing what he promised
not to do. Trump. Even a few celebrity surprise appearances (Maya Rudolph, Larry David) couldn’t push this train uphill.
Saturday Night Live’s new season opener was a big fat flop this weekend, with a 30 percent drop in the key 18-49 market.
What happened to Weekend Update? Where’s the new blood? Pete Davidson was off making a movie with James Gunn, Bowen Yang got one line and Shane Gillis was thrown to the wolves entirely.
