they've been airing live 30-minute "thursday election specials" in one of the sitcom timeslots, mostly update desk w/ a political sketch here and there. did the same thing in '08.

some dude, Friday, 28 September 2012 13:36 (six years ago) link

ah, I remember the 08 ones. Nice! I'll seek them out and catch up.

Given that it was just a week and change away with no announcement, I suspected that they were having trouble pinning down a host for the post-Daniel Craig episode. Bruno Mars pulling double duty would seem to confirm my suspicions.

Old Lunch, Tuesday, 2 October 2012 00:02 (six years ago) link

yeah BM as host is worrying, i'm sure HE thinks he's funny but who knows

glad Christina Applegate is finally hosting again, which she hasn't done since way back in the Married With Children days

jaz a make wardance (some dude), Tuesday, 2 October 2012 00:23 (six years ago) link

Oh, I didn't see that bit. Totally okay with Applegate.

AV Club looks back at '85-'86 season. And holy shit, I don't remember this sketch at all:

this season’s Christmas episode opens with Wayans and Vance performing the “Wrapper Rap,” a Christmas wrap-themed rap song that’s maybe the most racist thing ever, and that includes Jim Crow laws, the political careers of Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms, and the founding of the Ku Klux Klan. I suspect that if the heads of the American Nazi Party were to watch the sketch, even they’d say, “Jeez, we would never insult the dignity of human beings that way.”

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 17:05 (six years ago) link

We are more than due for another weird failure of a season like that one. I'd say the cast changes have been so gradual, there hasn't been an awkward season like that since the mid-90s.

pplains, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:00 (six years ago) link

Well yeah, you only wind up with a season like that when an entire cast gets sacked and a new one comes in. 1980. 1985. 1995.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:09 (six years ago) link

Speaking of 1995, I never knew about this:

The season was also home to the Rage Against the Machine incident. On April 13, 1996, the band was the musical guest, and was scheduled to perform two songs. The show was hosted that night by ex-Republican presidential candidate and billionaire Steve Forbes. According to RATM guitarist Tom Morello, "RATM wanted to stand in sharp juxtaposition to a billionaire telling jokes and promoting his flat tax by making our own statement."[2] To this end, the band hung two upside-down American flags from their amplifiers. Seconds before they took the stage to perform "Bulls on Parade", SNL and NBC sent stagehands in to pull the flags down.[3] Following the removal of the flags during the first performance, the band was approached by SNL and NBC officials and ordered to immediately leave the building. Upon hearing this, bassist Tim Commerford reportedly stormed Forbes' dressing room, throwing shreds from one of the torn down flags. Morello noted that members of the Saturday Night Live cast and crew, whom he declined to name, "expressed solidarity with our actions, and a sense of shame that their show had censored the performance."[2]

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:12 (six years ago) link

i remember that episode, i think i taped it

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:13 (six years ago) link

So, wait. Is there really a clip somewhere out there of Steve Forbes saying, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Rage Against the Machine!"

pplains, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:14 (six years ago) link

Drunk Uncle was particularly good. "You are not a genius. You are in a t-shirt."

flavor blasted (kenan), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:47 (six years ago) link

is michaels more ruthless about getting rid of & replacing people one by one now than in the past? jenny slate, paul brittan, the 'bitch please' woman. dunno how it was in the past.

goole, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:49 (six years ago) link

I'm still sore about Michaela Watkins getting released. (Casey Wilson too, but that turned out alright thanks to Happy Endings.)

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:51 (six years ago) link

I don't feel like he ever had any qualms about getting rid of featured players. Main cast is another story.

pun lovin criminal (polyphonic), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 18:52 (six years ago) link

xp Fever OTM. Watkins was great, had so much potential. Genuinely surprised that she was let go, considering who they held onto that year.

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 19:08 (six years ago) link

And when whole casts were replaced, it was because there was a new producer. So the only years with 100% turnover were the Doumanian season, and when Lorne replaced Ebersol.

5-Hour Enmity (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 19:11 (six years ago) link

yeah featured players have always been as likely to bounce out as to make the cast - ben stiller and sarah silverman particularly prominent ones who made two or three sketches and then disappeared. genuinely curious about the anthony michael hall season now - that writing staff is incredible.

balls, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 19:17 (six years ago) link

trying to remember who lasted from the saturday night dead cast to the ferrell era - norm macdonald, tim meadows, who else?

balls, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 19:18 (six years ago) link

spade briefly right? i remember he felt very out of place and he had his own 'showcase', felt as attached to the rest of the show as albert brooks or andy kaufman. only instead of brooks or kaufman you got spade.

balls, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 19:20 (six years ago) link

Mark McKinney and Molly Shannon sneaked into the cast in the season previous to Ferrell's debut

set me on fire RAAAAH (DJP), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 19:41 (six years ago) link

o man forgot mckinney (i guess that means koechner was there too maybe?).

balls, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:01 (six years ago) link

I remember that 1995 premiere and the first cheerleaders skit, thinking oh what in fresh hell is this crap.

pplains, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:04 (six years ago) link

Took me a long time to come around to Will Farrell.

pplains, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:04 (six years ago) link

Same here.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:05 (six years ago) link

For a short while, it looked like the show revolved more around Cheri Oteri than anyone else.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:06 (six years ago) link

yeah those early episodes of that era of snl where ferrell is either second banana or glorified extra are interesting. it's like the snl's where bill murray still hasn't found his footing.

balls, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:11 (six years ago) link

i didnt learn to like ferrell until Old School, hated him on snl

turds (Hungry4Ass), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:15 (six years ago) link

you didn't like bill brasky?

balls, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:23 (six years ago) link

Will Ferrell was really only WILL FERRELL in a handful of sketches during his first season. Most notably:

http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/wake-up-and-smile/1400225
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xczm9g_ride-the-snake_fun

Old Lunch, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:26 (six years ago) link

Ferrell didn't take a long time at all to become hilarious imo, thanks to Harry Caray, Alex Trebek and Janet Reno.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:30 (six years ago) link

I'd forgotten just how awesome that Wake Up and Smile sketch was.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:43 (six years ago) link

I remember that 1995 premiere and the first cheerleaders skit, thinking oh what in fresh hell is this crap.

I remember that as well, I thought the same thing.

controversial cabaret roommate (Nicole), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:44 (six years ago) link

yeah "ride the snake" was killer

but hated ferrell for a long time, even after he came into his own it just felt like he was in every sketch doing the same thing in most of them -- a little of him goes a long way imo

jaz a make wardance (some dude), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:45 (six years ago) link

true SNL fans looked past the overblown comedic stylings of will ferrell and instead appreciated the nuanced humor of jim breuer

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 3 October 2012 20:48 (six years ago) link

lol

94-95 season was such a heartbreaker, how they could chris elliott, michael mckean, chris elliott and janeane garofalo and just get barely anything of value out of that cast

ferrell is one of the best SNL cast members of all time
