Rolling Stone put out their rankings of all the cast members from 141-1. Some I didn't even know were on the show like Ben Stiller,
Laurie Metcalfe(Jackie from Roseanne),
Anthony Michael Hall, Robert Downey Jr and
Paul Schaffer.
Most overrated on the list is Tina Fey
Most underrated was Norm McDonald and Cheri Oteri.

AMH and RD Jr. were members of the worst season of all. The 85-86 season was the one that was so bad they joked of it being a dream at the beginning of 86-87. It sucked.

I read over on Tvline.com that tonight they are airing the very first episode of SNL. I am not a huge fan,monkey watched it once in a while through the 90's to now. I seriously think they need to hang it up. It hasn't been funny since the 90's with Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, David Spade, etc. it's so bad it makes me cringe.

I was wondering about that cause it said 1975on my guide. Im gonna check it out. cheeboogy cheeboogy.

Pittsburghgirl. who is monkey

Yeah I think they could have ended it around the mid 90s. Chris Farley is the only one I like out of, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, David Spade, David Spade wasn't funny on his own he was only brought along by the glory of Farley. His character in Rules Of Engagement was just a sleazy little pervert. He is more on the drippy runt side of unlikable.
Adam Sandler, he had one and a half movies I liked, Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer, (that's the half).

The 70's/80s were Saturday Night Lives heyday.

Terd, that was some sort of mistake- darn autocorrect!!! It should say "I only watched it once in a while". Lol

HAHAHAHA! Autocorrect can be annoying but that one turned out to be quite funny.

Devolution here,

This was excellent. Even the new skits were great.

We are DEVO

I enjoyed it also Devo. The Jeopardy skit is always a winner with Sean Connery. Found it odd that Eddie Murphy didnt do more.

I loved SNL in the Sandler/Farley/Spade days. Loved the Church Lady too, and Mr. Robinson's neighborhood. Except for the Roxbury guys, I haven't enjoyed a SNL skit since 1995.

I thought Phil Hartman was funny.
"I GOT CHUNX OF GUYS LIKE YOU IN MY STOOL!"

A bit sad to see Chevy's aged that much, though. Let's hope he isn't closing in on something bad.

Watched this SNL compilation The Best of Eddie Murphy (1998). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0274795/?ref_=tt_rec_tt

Some fun but mostly mediocre skits in this one. He was star of the show in 1980-84 (62 episodes) so there must be lots of better stuff out there.
He imitated many musicians so he wasn´t afraid to sing in his early days, the James Brown skit was the best.

For Murphy I liked Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood the best; it was a scream to see the Mr. Rogers format taken into the slums.
