Saturday Nights...Not the same

"Jane, you ignorant slut!" Find a sound bite for it here.

I have loved to watch SNL since I had to sneak out of bed to watch it as a 13 year old. I was really spying on my older sisters, isn't that the best place to discover cool new things. Anyway,

My favorite skits were the satirical news updates from SNL and the humorous banter between Weekend Update anchors Jane Curtin & Dan Aykroyd were the best. I loved the old news teams.

Sadly, SNL is not as good these days. What is your favorite quote from SNL? I have bolded mine below :)

Chevy, Dan, John, Jane, Gilda they were the all time best! Now I watch the Daily Show instead, hate the new SNL bunch.

I loved it all. Killer bees. LAND SHARK!

Have you seen the new show, Studio 60? It's a drama/comedy about the production of a show like SNL. It's interesting....
