A lesson in why SNL struggles. They’ve got the makings of a decent gag here: Melissa McCarthy as a female Mike Rice, firing T-shirt guns at her players, can’t go wrong (assuming you’re comfortable with goofing on the Rice saga at all) unless you drag the joke out two to three times longer than it needs to be. At a bare minimum, you’d think they might have had some fun with people like Eric Bolling who defended Rice on grounds that American culture has grown too “wussified.” Imagine a Bolling-type here grasping for ever goofier reasons to excuse McCarthy’s boorishness. But no, they’re intent on beating this one joke to death for five full minutes. Too bad.
