  • I don't know if it's breaking character but there was snl skit where a family was baby birding food into each others mouths. I believe the cameraman was supposed to pan away when it was the guests turn but it stayed on and he was giving the camera a death stare the entire time.(it was a Thanksgiving episode)

  • I had to quit watching SNL when the cue cards became more important than everything else. Give me Belushi with a katana any day. I hate watching people read. I wrote this before watching the whole thing. I love that Belushi was included. Sadly, what made that episode classic was not shown. As the show progressed, more and more of the actors started wearing bandages.

  • Actors breaking is funny, like Bill Hader because they're trying hard not to laugh. But Fallon doing it every time is annoying, it's like he doesn't respect his colleages hard work. And even on his own show it gets annoying once in a while. 🤷
