"The worst [expletive deleted] humor in the world." That's what Chevy Chase has to say about today's Saturday Night Live, FOX reports. Chase, an original SNL cast member, made the comment during a lengthy interview with the Washington Post, during which he also took shots at a couple former cast members. Will Ferrell's George W. Bush? "Just not funny." Tina Fey? He liked her, but "didn't see what all the folderol was about." As for SNL co-creator Lorne Michaels: "I'm amazed that Lorne has gone so low. And the audience of millions? "A whole generation of s---heads." So when, in Chases' estimation, was Saturday Night Live worth watching? The first couple of seasons, he says, adding "Why am I saying that? Because I was in it? I guess." (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
