Kenneth Bowser is the man behind Saturday Night Live In The 90s: Pop Culture Nation, which airs May 6 on NBC.
He says that if he ran all the SNL Is Dead headlines since the shows first broadcast, he would be able to fill all 90 minutes of the show.
Unlike some doomsayers, Bowser feels this years cast is particularly strong, although he believes the 90s cast, which featured future stars like Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler and Chris Rock is still the best.
And that opinion strikes actor Tim Meadows as very humorous.
He was also a cast member back then and remembers being taken aback by the many SNL is deadcomments that were also prevalent then.
As Meadows puts it, We were trying to carry the torch, so its tough to feel as if youre responsible for killing the show. Still, we dished it out so we had to be able to take it.
