One of Saturday Night Live’s breakout stars, Chevy Chase said the late-night series has the “worst humor in the world.” 

“I’m amazed that Lorne Michaels has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t believe it. How could you dare give that generation worse than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts,” Chase said in an interview with The Washington Post.

The 74-year-old joined the SNL cast back in 1975 and helped create the “Weekend Update” segment which is currently managed by Michael Che and Colin Jost, who hosted Monday’s 2018 Emmy Awards. 

At the award show, SNL comedians Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson and Aidy Bryant took home an Emmy for best variety sketch series last week. 

Chase still remains unimpressed with SNL and believes that the show went downhill once he left. 

“I’d have to say that, after the first two years it went downhill,” Chase said. “Why am I saying that? Because I was in it? I guess… I didn’t see the same fun thing happening to the cast the next year.”

Chase still gives props to SNL vets, Kristen Wiig, Eddie Murphy, Dana Carey and first-year newcomers Gilda Radner and Dan Aykroyd, but when it comes to Will Ferrell and Tina Fey the former SNL star has made it known that he is not a fan.
