There will be no new “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. The episode which was supposed to be hosted by Pete Davidson has been cancelled because of the writer’s strike.
There are only two more installments this season. If the strike continues, that may be the end of this season. “SNL” can’t function without writers unless Lorne Michaels is going to let everyone just improvise. And that would be a big mistake.
“SNL” is in the same position as “The View.” You’d think they couldn’t keep going without writers. That troupe has improvised for two days, but it’s not a success. They’re very brave, but we’ll see how long that can last.
