I was really excited to listen to this book. I've been sort of an on-again off-again fan of Saturday Night Live, but it's got such a great history with so many famous comics.
Needless to say I was extremely disappointed, and ended up bailing on this book about a third of the way through. I had enough. It reads like a college textbook. There will be a test at the end, lol.
Shockingly, the author drones on and on about historical significance, the business aspects, the producer, the significance of the comedic style used and all sorts of other nonsense. What it doesn't do is spend time on what I care about: the classic shows, the stars, the behind the scenes stuff, the funny moments, the scary moment, the drama etc etc.
I can't imagine a worse book written on "Saturday Night Live".
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Nothing really insightful. I could have written this book by researching and compiling articles about the show or reading the Wikipedia page.
