‘SNL’ Sought Conservative Viewers With Shane Gillis Hire



Sources tell Variety that Lorne Michaels hired Shane Gills to appeal to conservative viewers. Lorene is worried that the show appears to be too liberal due to the political sketches about Trump.

Sources close to SNL are still saying that SNL needs to have a better vetting process but they also say that Gillis was well-known in comedy circles for racist, homophobic, and sexist remarks.

Representatives for “SNL” have no comment.
