Added DiffLines:

* UnderminedByReality: The show's turn towards mocking the Trump presidency is undermined by the fact that [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong they ignored viewer complaints that they were promoting Trump's then-candidacy when he hosted in November 2015]], with several performers later admitting that they were uncomfortable working with him.

* HollywoodHomely: One of the "Kirby" sketches is a spoof of ''{{Film/Aliens}}'', where one of the space marines claims that they've been on the ship for so long that even the CaptainErsatz of Vasquez is "starting to look good". "Vasquez" is played by resident hottie Cecily Strong.

* MemeticLoser: Garrett Morris is the prototypical example of a cast member whose career went absolutely nowhere after leaving the show. Many later black cast members have said they took pains not to end up like him.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: A lot of ''SNL'''s sketches from the 1970s were drug-influenced (such as one that had an Abraham Lincoln portrait calling Richard Nixon a "dip.") and a lot of the writers and cast members at the time were high as kites. These days, the writers and cast members aren't like their 1970s counterparts (at worst, they get high from sleep deprivation in writing and planning the show; at best, some of the cast and crew members smoke weed, but only in their off-hours), but there are some crazy sketches and characters that seem like they're the product of a drug-influenced mind (''Toonces, The Cat Who Can Drive a Car'', WillFerrell's impression of Harry Caray, Bill Hader's Stefon[[note]]who is heavily implied to be on cocaine, meth, prescription pills, and possibly ecstacy, according to [[WordOfGod Bill Hader]][[/note]], just to name a few).

Added DiffLines:

** The increased emphasis on political skits and humor in the wake of the Trump presidency. Many people have enjoyed the coverage of the extreme chaos of the Trump administration and find the skits hilarious. Other people think the show is relying too much on anti-Trump humor at the expense of other current events and the jokes have become stale.

* FollowTheLeader: Creator/NormMacDonald has admitted that "Celebrity Jeopardy" was inspired by the recurring "Half Wits" sketch on ''{{Series/SCTV}}'', but says that he got Martin Short's blessing before debuting it.
* FridgeBrilliance: [[Fridge/SaturdayNightLive Has its own page.]]

** After Trump bashed the show for its SeinfeldIsUnfunny reputation due to an episode that parodied a debate during the 2016 Presidential Election, complete with a steady stream of [[TakeThat Take Thats]] against him, the show's reputation ended up rising massively and finally [[{{Irony}} broke out of said reputation]]. Under his very controversial presidency, the shows' newfound reputation continued to rise. However, the political skits ended up being [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive even by SNL standards]], and while plenty of people have enjoyed them, there are also many people (including people who don't support Trump) who feel the anti-Trump humor is overdone and too similar to that from other comedy shows.
