Television expert Bob Thompson spoke with Boston Public Radio on Monday about the second pre-recorded edition of SNL at Home.

"I thought it was a real example of how alarmingly quickly all of these places are managing to adapt to this at-home production environment," he said. "Two weeks ago was the first Saturday Night Live at Home, which was clearly just feeling out how it is that they were going to do this — I didn't know they were going to do more of them."

Thompson noted that the second edition of "SNL at Home" was a clear improvement.

"This second one was so much more sophisticated, so much more embracing of the whole aesthetic of what it means to have these things online."

Thompson is a founding director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture and a trustee professor of television and popular culture at Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
