    I have the SCTV DVD box sets. On one of them, there are lengthy interviews with the cast and writers. When the inevitable comparisons to SNL are brought up, one of them, I think Dave Thomas, said that it really isn't fair to compare the two, as they were made very differently. SNL writes all of its sketches in a 2 or 3 day marathon before the show night, with attempts made to tailor to them that week's host and their strengths and weaknesses. Then they rehearse them only two or three times, and before performing them live with no re-takes possible. On the other hand, SCTV was a filmed show with no rushed deadlines, and they had a lot longer to get the writing polished and the performances just right before putting them on film/tape. I agree that SCTV was a funnier show sketch-for-sketch, but they had a lot of advantages to achieve such success that the SNL people didn't and still don't.

    SCTV-'- one of my all-time favorite TV series. SNL had singular talents at different times, but in general the show never came close to this Canadian gem.

    the big question

    SlingTV has its on TCM Demand with about 60 films available. Basically films that have aired in the past couple of weeks. I believe its only the east coast feed. If that matters to a person, they should take that into account. I really don't care when it airs, I can just watch it on demand the next day or so at my leisure.

    the big question

    True. No need for the Watch TCM app. Not sure if Sling TV has East/West feeds and On-Demand like Hulu with Live TV.
