Customer Reviews

Having SNL "on demand" is perfect!

I'm a true "morning person." When I try to stay awake long enough to watch SNL *live,* I'm so tired, nothing seems all that funny. That's why this app is great. Why it's NOT so great is the weird "here's what you re going to watch!" way the content is presented. I've never been able to find watch an entire show on this app- it seems to shove about one-fourth of the previous weekend's show down your throat the minute you click on the icon.....And from the. until you give up and depart the app, the only choice you get is between two really old sketches. I would so much rather be able to just watch the last weekend's show all the way through, just the same as if I could successfully keep my sense of humor intact that late on a Saturday night

Perfect design, tons of content

This is a great app for both casual and die-hard fans of SNL and/or certain cast members. If there is a particular sketch you are trying to find, it can be found in seconds with the search feature that shows results for cast members, sketch names, and even sketch character names. The way the seasons are laid out with clickable cast members and their specific content is really fantastic. I probably sound like a shill, but assure you I am not. I am just pleasantly surprised and happy when an app like this is as good as it possibly can be without being bogged down by advertisements or lack of content. It also has had no glitches for me so far. Very satisfied with this app!

Thank you to everyone involved

I just really love this app. I'm a college student, about to graduate with a music performance degree, and I've always loved sketch style shows. I got a chance to play drums for a small theater in Atlanta recently doing a sketch style show, and had so much fun. Long story short, I've been watching sketches every night on my phone and I've come to the conclusion that my dream job would be to be a musician on SNL or a similar sketch style show. I just love them so much. Side note - it is so refreshing to see the actors be so accepting and non-discriminatory even in the older sketches. SNL has and always will be a great show run by amazing people. Thank you all.
