The once beloved show ‘Saturday Night Live’ is now under fire after airing a skit attempting to make fun of Joe Rogan and Ted Cruz.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“Saturday Night Live” is facing calls to be taken off the air by critics who charge that the show has fallen so much from where it once was that pulling it off the air might be the most compassionate move.
The calls for the show to be taken off the air and the mockery that it received over the weekend came in response to the show’s cold open, which mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and famed podcast host Joe Rogan.

Every time I think the comedic community has hit the bottom of the comedy barrel, they somehow find a new level of unfunniness https://t.co/ga7azYTqXy

Joe Rogan talking about this sketch will be funnier than anything on SNL in the last 10 years — and be to a bigger audience. https://t.co/0260sDyf8o
