What are you favorite and least favorite Saturday Night Live skits, running characters, and hosts?

I'm a big fan of David Spade's Hollywood Minute. HURRAH for cynical humour in all it's forms!

Chevy Chase is a dickhead, Norm Macdonald is God.

That Wayne's World skit was pretty good.

Of course, Phil Hartman was a star of the highest order and Will Ferrell was excellent, and is good in films which makes a change.

And lest we forget Chris Farley R.I.P, he was a wild and crazy guy.

John Goodman is one of my favorite hosts, and Will Ferrel, Tracey Morgan and Jimmy Fallon are my favorites from current years. I also like past castmembers like Norm MacDonald, Colin Quinn, and Phil Hartman -- who was, indeed, a god of the highest order.

Adam is alright, but I love that wild, sexy man that is Chris Farley (R.I.P.   cry ). My favorite skits are "Nerf Crotch Bats", "Old Glory Robot Insurance", and "Deep thoughts". I also like the TV funhouse cartoon, by Rob Schmiegl (I think that's how you spell his name.)

The show was good until will ferrel left. My faviorate sketch is when tracy morgan goes around space and he has a acoustic guitar. Horatio sanz is quite funny. I also like when chris kattan does "mango"...hillarity ensures. my faviorate guest has to be christopher walken. I love that guy. The most recent time he hosted was so funny..stifly stiferson.

Who?    laff

(John) Belushi might've been a comedy genius but he was a bit of an arse in real-life from what I've read.

Yeah, so what? As you said yourself, he was a comedy genius, and in the end, that is all that counts ... in this case.

Gocad, didn't Belushi and Akryod (never knew the spelling...) just release an album together?  Saw a performance by them on Regis And Kelly the other day (Hey, i was bored... I'm not a morning person)

John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd were The Blues Brothers! And they released several albums under that name, not mention to the film ...

If you're talking about John Belushi, this is impossible since he's dead.

If you're talking about Jim Belushi, well, I guess it's possible.

You better believe it.

For any who cares here in Blighty, the Farley/Spade movie Tommy Boy is on BBC1 on Tuesday.

Some of my favourite skits:

Sprockets, Wayne's World, Toonces the driving cat, Farley's motivational speaker guy, Deep thoughts, All those Jeopardy parodies, Robert Smiegel's cartoons, The Sweeny sisters,  man way too many to list.

There were of course tons of really crappy recurring skits like those two annoying cheerleadrs, the making copies guy,  skits like that make me dive for the remote.

All in all SNL was and still is to a lesser degree, cool.

Some of my fave cast members:

John Belushi
Dan Ackroyd
Will Farrel
Christopther Guest
Eddie Murphy
Molly Shannon
Dennis Miller
Colin Quinn
Chris Farley
Adam Sandler

SNL seems to have become crap now (well maybe not totally). Seriously I can't watch a whole episode anymore....  I liked the 90's and late 80's. Isn't Chris Kattan gay?  What about Kevin Nealon?  Norm MacDonald was good too, they should make a show or something together.  I wonder what Kevin's doing right now?

The one where they're tearing down the set around Kirk/Spock/Bones?  Yeah, that's the one.

Hey, how about Cheri Oteri and her famous character, Spastic Crazy Idiot Who Screams The Same Thing Over And Over?

Wait... that was every character she played.

I don't know why it matters but even if it does the most recent episode (or at least the Dan Ackroyd one) was Chris and Tracy's last episode. Besides John Lovitz was gay and no one had a problem with it.

John Lovitz: I'm not gay!

Critic fans will appreciate this, well maybe not.

Actually, I got a book detailing the history of SNL, and in it, in an interview with Chris Kattan he says he's not gay. He says that one time he did a gay guy really good and funny, and the writers just kinda got lazy and gave him all the gay roles.

And thus an actor is typecast...

Couple years down the road, I bet we see his autobiography: "I Am Not Mango."

The classic SNL episodes were great, it sucks that Comedy Central seems to like the newer seasons with "big name stars" who are just bad hosts... For a while they showed some early 80's episodes which was fun because you never saw them but they stopped that after about a week.

Best SNL skit ever:

Chevy Chase: Weekend Update recognizes its obligation to present responsible opposing viewpoints to our editorials. Here to reply to a recent editorial, is Emily Litella.
Emily Litella: I'm here tonight to speak out against busting schoolchildren.  Busting schoolchildren is a terrible, terrible thing. I hear this is going on all over the country. Mean policemen arrest little children and put them in
jail in the wrong neighborhood, so they can't even play with their little friends. Imagine, busting schoolchildren! The food in jail isn't good, and even though they get bread, I don't believe they can get toast. Or nice cake.  Now, who will tuck them in? Where will they hang their leggings? Where will they set up their little lemonade stands? Well, they don't have toys in jail, except maybe..
Chevy Chase: [ interrupting ] Miss Litella?
Emily Litella: Yes?
Chevy Chase: I'm sorry. The editorial was on bussing schoolchildren. Bussing. Not busting.
Emily Litella: Oh. I'm sorry. Never mind.

I like the Anally retentive carpenter sketch with Phil Hartman.

Also, anything with Dana Carvey.

I could have swore she (Tina Fey) was being interview somewhere and said that she was going to do Weekend Update alone this year, or at least that's how it was looking to be.
