Truth Vs Fiction

Just finished watching Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip. We've always liked Aaron Sorkin shows and this one, about a Saturday Night Live type show, seems to be a good one as well. Compare that to this past week's season premier of SNL. I've been a huge fan of Saturday Night Live since high school, and have probably seen at least part of every episode for the last 13 years. They've had some incredibly talented comedians during this time, but it seems that the sketch writing continues to get worse and worse. I found just a part of one sketch funny this past week. It just can't compare to the nightly punch that The Daily Show and The Colbert Report offer. Perhaps after a 32 year run, the show needs a complete overhaul or even the death sentence.

So if you're scoring at home: I now enjoy a scripted show about a live comedy-sketch show more than the actual live comedy-sketch show that the scripted show it's based on.
