Thursday Night’s game between the Bears and Commanders has been truly awful. A 3-0 game at halftime and 7-6 early in the 4th quarter, it has not been an enjoyable watch for football fans. It’s reminiscent of last week’s game with the Broncos and Colts that featured zero touchdowns and a 12-9 final score.
Not to worry, though. Amazon Prime had us set up with some halftime entertainment in the form of former SNL Cast Member and sitcom star Taran Killam. Except, somehow, it was worse than the actual game.
Taran Killam completely bombed his skit
At halftime, the comic attempted to do some weekend-update-esque jokes. Sadly, they were not funny.

Yikes. these are just not funny, and they’re stale, too. Everyone has already made the Kyler Murray-Hillary Clinton joke, and it wasn’t that funny the first time.
But then, he gets into some strange rift about the names of quarterbacks, making fun of pretty common names like Skyler and Bailey. That part has to be the worst single piece of comedy I’ve ever seen. In a better society than ours you’d go to jail for telling a joke that unfunny.
Everyone agreed that it was incredibly unfunny
I searched Twitter for 20 minutes and could not find a single person that thought his jokes were funny.
I like taran killam but yikes that was awful #TNFonPrime

Finally, an Amazon joke.
Amazon really does suck the life out of everything: football, Taran Killam, bookstores

Let’s hope this segment doesn’t come back.
