Latest Episodes

Episode 43: Jon Hamm/Coldplay (Oct. 25, 2008)

EThis week, Mad Men's own Jon Hamm stops by to deliver a modern day Halloween classic! We get two all-time great Forte moments, a guilty pleasure Digital Short, Bill Hader's Vincent Price and THREE Coldplay songs...if you're into that sort of thing. Solid as Barack indeed.

Episode 42: George Carlin/Billy Preston & Janis Ian (Oct. 11, 1975)

EThis week, we're going all the way back to the beginning. That's right. Season One. Episode One. The big one. The birth of SNL. It's one of the show's most unique episodes, with more discrete segments than nearly any other episode. Things come flying fast and we're breaking it all down (and manage to discuss a bit of the second episode as well).

Episode 41: Kyle MacLachlan/Sinead O'Connor (Sept. 29, 1990)

EWe're kicking off our third season with one of the show's most fondly remembered premieres! Take a trip back to a wonderfully weird time in America's history when Twin Peaks and Sinead O'Connor were both surprisingly popular and Chris Rock & Farley were just getting started on the show. Featuring fun with commercials!

Off Week 16: Pre-Season 45 Shenanigans

EIn an episode already semi-outdated a mere 24 hours after recording it, we sit down to discuss the upcoming 45th season of SNL! We deliberate the announced hosts/musical guests, the departure of Leslie (but NOT the new featured players) and take some questions from the audience.

Episode 40: Buck Henry/Jennifer Warnes & Kenny Vance (May 21, 1977)

EIt's our big ol' honkin' season finale and so, of course, we're rounding things out with SNL's second season finale with Buck Henry! We got Coneheads. We got Emily Litella. We got the Samurai. Hell, even the damn Land Shark shows up! And sadly, It all sounds better than it actually is.

Episode 39: Bob Saget/TLC (May 6, 1995)

EThis week, we return to a troubled time in SNL history by dipping back into the infamous season 20 with Bob Saget's episode. Is it as painful Deion Sander's show, the only episode to receive a zero on our podcast? Generally, yes.
