Re: SNL general discussion thread

I am still pissed Depeche Mode released a new album in 2023 and it came during SNL season last Spring and they never got a chance to perform.

Not a fan or a hater but how come Beyonce with the new country album did not perform on SNL this year?

I know Taylor Swift is Prince now and never performs on TV anymore so that is out of the question.

Yes. It's mostly a lot of very popular, top selling acts. Wish it wasn't, but here we are. But there's also a handful of "buzz" bands, bands that are up and coming, getting critical notice if not a lot of airplay. Recent performances by Maneskin, Japanese Breakfast, and boygenius come to mind. That's the niche I see the LLs, and their inclusion on big worldwide tours with very famous acts indicates they're on the rise, and it would be cool if Lorne would have them on now, and not after they blow up.

When Japanese Breakfast appeared on SNL, the band had already been nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy.

boygenius is considered an indie super-group that by the time they appeared on SNL had a hit album and won 3 Grammy awards.

Maneskin got their Best New Artist Grammy nomination after appearing on SNL, but were a European sensation that had already sold millions of albums and had many hits.

Now explain to me how your precious Linda Lindas are comparable to these acts. Because their Wikipedia page neglects to mention them ever being nominated for a Grammy or having any hits.

I bet this artist will appear on SNL in the 2024-25 season if they want to get the latest act in pop and be pissed somebody more deserving should have gotten on the show instead.

The SNL 50th anniversary special will be on February 16th, 2025. Once again, they're doing it around 8 months before the actual anniversary date.

My nine months before the special prediction is that it will suck.

If Lorne Michaelís is going to quit and hand it over to someone else when the show turns 50 Iím all for celebrating the 50th anniversary tomorrow.

I mean you'd want to do it during the show's 50th season, instead of at the start of season 51. Especially if Lorne anticipates stepping down after 50. And though Sweeps don't exist any more, between the Super Bowl, the Grammys and the NBA All-Star weekend, February is the biggest month for event TV programming, so it makes sense.

Re: SNL general discussion thread

Maybe they need to do it in advance to get as many stars on the show with a open schedule.

I forgot was the 40th anniversary live or was it pre-taped and aired at a later date?

I wonder how Nikki Glaser has not hosted SNL or she refuses to do it?

AWB has had no career in entertainment for decades. I guess the WTF on that podcast is WTF do you do for money?
