There will never be a show whose backstage workings are as interesting as “SNL.” The breakneck pace, the quickly jettisoned material, the power struggles — it's all intriguing. Can't wait for that updated “Live from New York” oral history.
Last night on Seth Meyers' show, Andy Samberg (whose show “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is damn cute!) discussed a couple of characters he created that never made it to air on “SNL.” They are so dumb. And hilarious. I say they deserve a shot.
