Being on Television is Never Like Being in a War


You have to be careful when you make analogies to war, and I'm not going to criticize Andy Samberg for talking about seven seasons of Saturday Night Live as if he actually did go to war. This is a clumsy analogy that a lot of people take back when they think about it.

I will pay tribute to the fact that what he does is extremely difficult. There are a lot of people who would love to be a sketch comedy performer on live television. Only a very small number of people last seven seasons doing this sort of thing.
