It went into a slow, then much faster decline from too much Trump.
Even loyalists to the satiric network tabloid stopped tuning in.
Its signature is the rabbit-nose nervous whatever Kavanaugh couldn't shake. There are enough but not too many tears. The main prop is the calendar tracking all the activities with his buddies with odd nicknames. Here is that online video.
The Damon version of Kavanaugh transmits an overwrought guy who probably shouldn't have been admitted to the state bar. Never mind, confirmed for the U.S. Supreme Court.
The meme of beer dominates. That's a severe blow to the beer industry. Likely college students watching "SNL" made the decision to switch to cheap wine.
That returns them to the counterculture years.
Back then at the free (propaganda-filled) outdoor concerts we all had bottles of 99-cent Boone's Farm sweet flavored wines, such as apple. After all, we grew up on Coca-Puffs cereal. And, you bet, we wouldn't have been seen with beer. We had been to Europe where we learned to discern wines.
Good news for nostalgia buffs: Boone's Farm, in sweet flavors, can be ordered online from Walmart. Inflation has galloped since the end of the 1960s, though. A bottle will set you back $3.33. Click here and return to the final days before we had to knock off all that fun and go to work. Even then there were student loans to pay off.
A clever retirement community in the Hudson Valley, New York, could organize a special event, serving Boone's Apple Blossom and having the talented musicians there lead a sing-along of "Puff The Magic Dragon." Yes, I can be hired to live-tweet/live-blog the event.
Meanwhile, back at "SNL," no one got all the hook.
Democrat Saint - Dianne Feinstein - was alluded to as one of the oldest white folks in the Senate.
And the Democrat who brought the nation state-level class action public nuisance lead paint litigation - Sheldon Whitehouse - looked like a nerd trying to look cool.
His early-adopter advocacy for children with lead in their blood also qualifies him for sainthood.
Now that the lead issue returned via California, Whitehouse should re-promote his commitment to wiping out that health hazard. Among the supposed "bad guys" are Sherwin-Williams, convicted in the bench trial of "Santa Clara v. Arco."
Go after 'em, Saint Sheldon. Along the way you might catch the Whitehouse in 2020. Sure, I will volunteer in your campaign. (In 2005-2006, I had blogged the second run of the lead paint litigation in your home state of Rhode Island. The hotels, restaurants, and parking lots made out like bandits.)
Let's just hope that "SNL" knows when to let go of the Kavanaugh fun. Humor, like everything else in a digital era, has only a moment in time.
There are myriad other topics to deride.
At the top of the list are those elite prep schools in New England rural areas where both professors and administrators dipped into the pool of youth for sexual frolics. The victims didn't rat. Not at the time. Now they have hired high-priced law firms to gnaw at the reputations of those who were No Mr. Chips.
Guess, way back then, they were afraid the predators would retaliate with bad grades and lousy recommendations. That would have been the end of their careers proudly leading the nation's courts, BigLaw firms, Congress, Fortune50, and fine research universities.
Full Disclosure: From the hood, I went to public high school. Since I had no advantage I had no reason to put up with exploitation. Kavanaugh and all his buddies with those too-cute nicknames would have known to steer clear of me. Yes, they would have smelled a rat.
