Honestly, I completely agree to that since the show always had those really bad filler sketches that are just there to make sure the show is a half hour longer than it needs to be. And we certainly can't count on Robert Smigel-esque animated segments that at least have a funny tonal shift in humor. Though I do like when they have "We're not Porn Stars...Anymore" as a show closer. I'm partial to that one because it somehow reminds me of Senor Cardgadge. But yeah, even in the best seasons with the best casts, there's those 2 (maybe 3) skits that somehow take up a half an hour per show because of the insane amount of advertisements that aren't even funny by the unfunniest cast members standards. I think they only exist to pad around the second musical performance (that usually gets cut out anyway on certain rebroadcasts) so it doesn't get cut in its initial airing.Somewhat off-topic, but I wonder why SNL hasn't shrunk down yet. I don't understand why they even bother with the last half hour of sketches for broadcast when they're always completely omitted when they reduce the reruns to an hour from an hour and a half.
Because of course it does. Yeah, I agree with D*Snowth's frustraition. I can understand if it's some European thing we'd either see as filler on a cable channel (which the latest season of Oggy was until they stupidly didn't go through the episodes where they'd find an okay in European kid's cartoon hidden naked background woman and stopped airing it like it's the show's fault and not theirs for being lazy enough to let it slide), or years later on qubo or the new third option of Netflix and the like, but it's annoying that you can see the entire season of a show before it gets a proper TV show release...and the US is the one that funds the show!!! I'm incredibly ahead of the CN broadcasts of Robots in Disguise because of UK based uploads, which doesn't bug me since it's at like 6:30 on a Saturday.ABC Kids in Australia has shown several episodes of season 46 yet to air on HBO.
