Lorne Michaels is talking about producing a couple of reality shows surrounding Saturday Night Live. One of the shows would be a viewer vote on sketches in the dress rehearsal to see which of them makes it onto the live show. As you probably know, the SNL dress rehearsal is almost three hours long, and gets cut to make time for the show. You'd be able to vote on which sketches actually made it.
There's another idea in which the American people would be able to vote on the newest cast member. Seems like a good idea, until you realize that Americans are big Larry the Cable Guy fans. You never know who you're going to get. We have a better idea. How about we take SNL behind the shed and shoot it? It's time, you know? Or, you can compose a cast of the best of the still-living veterans of the show, at least for a season, doing the best sketches of the last 30 years.
Just an idea.
