Chevy Chase bashes Saturday Night Live and more in his ‘comeback’


In a Washington Post interview, Chevy Chase talks getting sober and wanting to get back to work, and then proceeds to bash the institution that made him famous.

Chevy Chase doesn’t have the best track record as of late. From making a racist comment to Donald Glover on the set of Community to apparently making the lives of the original Saturday Night Live cast miserable, he’s proving he might not be great as some thought he was.

According to him, he blamed his behavior on his alcohol abuse and now that he’s sober, he wants to get back into the game. But — as if he didn’t take his own advice — he’s starting to make the same kind of comments all over again, this time bashing Saturday Night Live as if it wasn’t the institution that made him. So is he a changed man or is he still just as problematic as he’s always been?

In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Chevy Chase claims that the series went downhill after he left the show. You know, in 1976. Currently, the show is on its 44th season and is still one of the most tuned-into shows on NBC and on television in general. But sure, Chevy. You were their golden charm.

He goes on to bash the show and what “humor” is, saying that the new generation doesn’t know what comedy is. In a statement he thought should be off the record (though the Washington Post clarifies that he definitely knew they were recording), Chevy said:

"First of all, between you and me and a lamppost, jeez, I don’t want to put down Lorne or the cast, but I’ll just say, maybe off the record, I’m amazed that Lorne has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—— believe it.That means a whole generation of s—heads laughs at the worst f—— humor in the world. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s— than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts."

If it wasn’t clear by now, it seems most people understand that Chevy Chase is over. The case in point? Right now when all these articles are coming out talking about how he’s sober and ready to work, yet no one seems to want to work with him.

You can see the new season of Saturday Night Live premiering Sept. 29 with host Adam Driver and musical guest Kanye West. Chevy Chase is old news now, and maybe it’s just time that we leave him and his controversial point of views in the past.
