SNL Throwback Of The Week #9, 4/10/2010

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 Will Ferell in the role of gameshow host Alex Trebek. Celebrity Jeopardy has been one of the all time funniest skits to ever air on SNL. It always features 3 celebrity contestants who are so dumb it is unbearable... unbearable, but hysterical. This episode features Ben Stiller as Tom Cruise, Jimmy Fallon as Adam Sandler, and Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery. For fans of the skit, you all know how great Hammond/Connery can be. If you never seen the skit... well then you better clear an hour of your schedule because you will be on youtube after this watching all the Celebrity Jeopardy skits. Live from my living room... It's Saturday Night!!!!
