CHEVY Chase, one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, is no longer a fan of the show.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm amazed that Lorne has gone so low,‚ÄĚ Chase said. ‚ÄúI had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn‚Äôt f***ing believe it. That means a whole generation of s**theads laughs at the worst f***ing humor in the world. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s**t than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.‚ÄĚ
He also took a swipe at SNL alums including Will Ferrell, calling the actor known for his George W. Bush impressions overrated.
‚ÄúJust not funny,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúMakes $25 million a picture.‚ÄĚ
Chase also admitted he‚Äôs unimpressed by several other stars, including Tina Fey, who left the show in 2006.
‚ÄúI liked Tina,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúI didn‚Äôt see what all the folderol was about. She was good.‚ÄĚ
The actor also expressed disappointment with Kristen Wiig, who bid farewell to the show in 2012.
‚ÄúShe had two things going for her,‚ÄĚ Chase said of the Bridesmaids star. ‚ÄúShe had clear-cut chops, and she was pretty, too. But what happened to her? Where did she go?‚ÄĚ
During his time on the show, Chase became known for his Weekend Update segment and won two Emmys for his work. He left the show in 1976.
But despite his criticisms of SNL, Chase would come back in a heartbeat. He made an appearance at the show‚Äôs 40th-anniversary special in 2015.
‚ÄúI can‚Äôt tell you, to be up there, on that stage, doing that stuff,‚ÄĚ Chase said. ‚ÄúI‚Äôll tell you, I‚Äôd do it again in a minute.‚ÄĚ
