The Shoutbox
Eh, he does Weekend Update and standalone short stuff. By all accounts he's kind of a pain, he got in trouble for saying some stuff, too.

The celebrity stuff is overwhelming the writing, though, for sure, both with him and a lot of the guest stars.

The Pete Davidson stuff is weird. He's this big star, or people talk about him a lot, he's got buzz...and they never write for him.

Makes no sense. He's on the show, but not really.
Give the bill to Bill he's got lots of bills.
I don't have an answer for that, bill.
I also kinda blame the overload of celebrity cameos and political sketches, I mean it's ok at first but then it begins to get on your nerves.

The Sam Adams bit was the only one that worked, but I dont really count the pre-produced segments.

Id like to know what goes through Mulaneys head this week working with the current writers.

I had to give up halfway through during the season premiere.
