Alas the Alec Baldwin, GE exec and show micromanager, trumped Alec Baldwin Trump. So we’re stuck with the comedy writing on Medium.

BTW: When the women have been good, the show’s been good. Curtin, Dunne, Rudolph, Garofalo and Silverman (came and went too quickly), Gasteyer, Wiig, McKinnon, Jones, Poehler, Fey, and the best ever Gilda Radner. When the headliners were comics like Oteri and Dratch, the show dived.

The great female comics could do political comedy.
