SNL Throwback Of The Week #5 2/27/2010

I am a huge Saturday Night Live fan. One of my earliest memories was of my parents watching SNL every Saturday while we were tucked in our bedrooms, and sometimes being allowed to watch for a bit. The show has gone through its ups and downs over its 35 year run, but the fact that it is still on the air after 35 years is a testament to the staying power of the show. Lorne Michaels is a genius at finding and developing young, comedic talent. SNL has produced a bevy of stars over the years, from Eddie Murphy to Tina Fey. The show is doing well again thanks to Ms. Fey and the rest of the team, but I love watching clips from the old shows. Every Saturday I will give you guys one of my favorites. This weeks clip features Rachel Dratch as Debbie Downer. Its a birthday party for Ben Affleck, and everybody is having a great time... except Debbie. She never has any fun. So we get some funny, awardward scenes here between her and the rest of the partygoers. Pretty funny if you ask me. Affleck is always funny when he guest stars. Hope you enjoy the clip. Live from my livingroom, it's Saturday Night!!!
