Report: Long-Running Political Lecture Show 'Saturday Night Live' Will Shift To Comedy Next Season
Entertainment · May 24, 2019 ·

NEW YORK, NY - A new report out of well-known political lecture show Saturday Night Live indicated Friday that the series will undergo a drastic genre change, shifting to a comedic format.

Insiders claim the series will attempt to have jokes, funny skits, and clever writing. It's a major change for the series, since it pretty much just lectures you on what to believe politically at this point.

"We wanted to try something different," one SNL writer said. "I know that just having angry, nonsensical lectures against the right has been a really popular format for the 682 viewers we have left, but we wanted to shake it up a bit. We started thinking, 'What if we make up funny parodies and do clever skits and stuff?' Someone dug up some old footage from the show 30 years ago and it seemed like they were doing that kind of stuff then."

"I don't know, maybe it is worth a shot," she said, shrugging.

In order to assist with the shift to comedy, showrunners have reportedly resurrected Chris Farley.
