^They are, but there's still quite a bit on there. But no church chat. They took down my favorite SNL sketch of the past 4 years a few weeks ago. It was Maya Rudolph singing the National Anthem for the World Series in 06, and it was the most frickin' hilarious thing ever.

I think my favorite SNL fake commercial of all time is for "colon blow" cereal. I can name tons of others, like you all can, but that one just always cracked me up.

There was also a great fake Budweiser commercial with Robin Williams and Joe Piscopo in it...it dealt with a hockey game and was a great take off on Bud's at the time ad campaigns. "Bring ouuuuut your best...."

How about the Canon Powershot with Stevie Wonder playing tennis?

Holy shit.

What's with the personal attacks?

The "imo" is implied sometimes, you know, since a large amount of what is said on this site is opinion. Especially when talking about things in terms of good and bad - of course it's opinion.

And to be perfectly honest, since I haven't watched any old-school SNL in a long time, it really did slip my mind that Crystal or Lovitz were even ON SNL....if I had remembered, they would've been included. You gotta remember I'm only 23.

As for forgetting Belushi....that was stupid. I knew I was forgetting someone when I typed that, too, but I couldn't put my finger on it.

My favorite is Happy Fun Ball.

"Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball."

Or maybe the car commercial with Will Ferrell ... I don't remember the fake-brand name, but it was a car marketed to crazy people. The tag line was, "The car your neighbor's dog has been telling you to buy."

And the last shot is of Will Ferrell jumping into the air and singing "There's a radio in my fingernail .... car!!!!"

Awesome.

It's not a personal attack, but, you hit the nail on the head in your 2nd to last paragraph. You say things like "the only casts worth watching" as if you're an SNL historian, then hide behind your age later on. Maybe just say "my 2 favorite casts are......" as opposed to taking a piss on every cast you dislike? Just a thought, and, nothing personal.

Enjoy Larry Hughes.

Happy Fun Ball was awesome.

Schmitt's Gay was also funny. "If you're gay, and you love beer, then Schmitt's Gay is for you".

Then there's the Bass-o-Matic '76.

"Mmm, that's terrific bass."

Anyone remember the first time Alec Baldwin hosted? It was amazing. He's great all the time, but that one still stands out to me. What a revelation it was at the time, his ability to do comedy that well.

I'm sure I've seen his first hosting stint, but I don't remember which ones are which.

Did that episode have that "Hello, I'm a Handsome Actor" one? That was hilarious.

Or where he played a doctor who mispronounced everything?

"It could be ..... canker. But it might be benig-in."

I'm glad he finally found that niche as a supporting actor, too. He's not charismatic enough to carry an entire film, but he can sure as hell steal it (re: Glengarry Glen Ross).

I do remember when he hosted with Kim Basinger (Bay-singer? Bah-singer? Bay-sin-gher?)

It was the opening monologue where he kept looking dramatically at the camera, speaking of his being a handsome actor......then there was a Greta Garbo sketch.....a sketch where he kissed Hartman full on the lips......a sketch where he is a trucker at a diner exchanging innuendo laced comments with Jan Hooks (who I think was amazing)....and a few others....

Tonight's opening sketch was hilarious!
Fred Armisen did a fantastic Obama. I'm impressed!
Btw, I hear Huckabee's supposed to make a cameo.

He carried his end of Red October fairly well....but, yes, when he supports like in Aviator or Departed or Glengarry, he's fantastic....not to mention 30 Rock, of course, a show written for him, basically.
