'Saturday Night Live' and the best skits of its past 35 seasons
Every year, people complain about the sliding standards of "Saturday Night Live," and every year the show has people buzzing about the hilarious skit from Saturday's show. As the comedy ensemble enters its 36th season this Saturday, BlogPost looks back on five of its more memorable moments. Let us know which ones we left out below.
5. Peyton Manning can teach my nonexistent children to play ball any day of the week.
4. Andy Samberg may have plenty of fans who want to get a cupcake with him on a lazy Sunday, but he won our heart when he tried to win Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
3. Dan Aykroyd and his pink plaid jacket could sell us anything. Even a bass smoothie.
2. The Celebrity Jeopardy skit with its world-weary Alex Trebek played by Will Ferrell and an abusive Sean Connery played by Darrell Hammond celebrates "Saturday Night Live" at its best: with pitch-perfect imitations and great ensemble casting.
1. Christopher Walken and his droll instance for "more cowbell" would make this a memorable SNL moment on his own. But Will Farrell as the cowbell-wielding Gene Frenkle "exploring the studio space" steals the show.
