Former Green Bay Packers QB and NBC Sports guest host Brett Favre sat down with Bob Swerski and Carl Wollarski to discuss their differing perspectives on the long-running rivalry between The Pack and Da Bears.

New HBO Shows

New HBO Shows

Game of Thrones is coming to an end, and HBO will need some new programming to help pick up the slack after it’s gone. SNL decided to give the network some ideas for spin-offs, with a little help from guest host Kit Harington. We’d so tune in for that Arya show.

Bodega Bathroom

Bodega Bathroom

After watching the short film Water Closet this week, we’ve got another cautionary tale about using public bathrooms. SNL’s hilariously weird sketch is a Willy Wonka-esque tale of a young man who visits a particularly nasty toilet.

SNL: Roach-Ex

SNL: Roach-Ex

There’s nothing worse than walking into your house to discover a cockroach doing push-ups on the carpet. But the roaches in this SNL commercial parody are even more of a nuisance than in real-life. Don Cheadle seems to enjoy playing slimy vermin these days.

SNL: Cue Cards

Cue cards have been an instrumental part of Saturday Night Live since its inception back in 1975. In this behind the scenes video, meet SNL Cue Card Supervisor Wally Feresten, and learn how his team makes countless handwritten cards to keep the show running smoothly.

SNL: Beta Force

SNL: 80’s Music Video

SNL: 80’s Music Video

“…Trix are for cereal. And this is the truth.” A jilted lover chastises his girl. But not before doing some regrettable things. Saturday Night Live and Donald Glover do a perfect parody of Oran “Juice” Jones’ classic The Rain, which was really asking to be made fun of.

SNL: Jurassic Park Auditions

SNL: Jurassic Park Auditions

Bill Hader’s return to host Saturday Night Live featured this sketch, featuring hilarious cast impressions of numerous 1990s celebrities as they each tried out for a role in the Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park. That Sinbad joke. Ouch.

SNL: Stranger Things 3

SNL: Stranger Things 3

Mike and Eleven meet up with more kids with unusual – and often unnecessary powers in this silly parody of Stranger Things from Saturday Night Live. For decades, the show could have used someone with Three’s power.

Will Ferrell’s SNL Audition

Will Ferrell’s SNL Audition

Will Ferrell is slated to host Saturday Night Live on 1/27/18. To celebrate his long-awaited return to the series that made him a star, SNL has released this gem – the actual audition tape that landed him the gig back in 1995, and includes his hilarious Harry Caray impression.

SNL: Fresh Prince

When The Fresh Prince bailed from West Philly for the West coast, it turns out that things didn’t quite go the way that his auntie planned. A darkly comic parody of the 1990s TV classic, courtesy of Chris Redd, Jessica Chastain, and Saturday Night Live.

Penn and Teller’s Best Trick

Back in 1986, magicians Penn and Teller turned up on an episode of Saturday Night Live and pulled off an a series of tricks which poked fun at other well known magicians, and culminated with a big surprise at the end.

SNL Playing Cards

SNL Playing Cards

Theory11 presents a unique deck of cards inspired by classic moments from Saturday Night Live. The deck features an art deco style closely associated with NBC’s Studio 8H and Rockefeller Center. We love that they included Brian Fellow’s Safari Planet.

SNL: The Chosen One

SNL: The Chosen One

Pete Davidson finds himself pulled into the fantasy world of his RPG, where the characters believe he is their one true savior. Unfortunately, all they really got was totally useless dudebro Chad instead. Okay.

SNL: Levi’s Wokes

SNL: Levi’s Wokes

“They not brown, but they not NOT brown.” Saturday Night Live’s fake commercial for the most ridiculous jeans ever teaches us that refusing to be labeled and put into a box is sometimes a bad thing – at least when it comes to fashion.

SNL: Papyrus

SNL: Papyrus

Ryan Gosling stars in a hilarious sketch that will be most appreciated by graphic designers, as he portrays a man who just can’t seem to get over the fact that James Cameron’s blockbuster Avatar used the Papyrus font for its subtitles and logo.

Binging with Babish: Taco Town

Binging with Babish: Taco Town

To celebrate his millionth YouTube subscriber, Andrew Rea of Binging with Babish decided to give a tour of his kitchen, then replicated an SNL fan favorite, the 15-layer Taco Town taco we were first introduced to back in 2005. The cook starts at 5:21. Guacamolito sauce ftw!

Amazon Echo Silver

Saturday Night Live presents a special version of Amazon’s voice-based assistant, which is designed specifically to help out older folks who are slightly less tech savvy than their typical customer.

Creating SNL’s Visual Effects

Creating SNL’s Visual Effects

While we don’t normally think of Saturday Night Live for its visual effects, the show actually requires quite a few of them these days. Take a look at some of the work their VFX artists must deliver under the gun each week, often with less than 12 hours before airtime.

SNL: Olive Garden

SNL: Olive Garden

“The people act like they’ve never seen a restaurant… or eaten food before.” SNL pokes fun at the over-the-top expressions seen on the faces of happy customers in commercials for family restaurant chains, as a group of actors are given direction for their reaction shots.

SNL: Youngblood

SNL: Youngblood

An old man sees a young punk bragging in the park, and decides to teach him a lesson by challenging him to a game of chess. But Pete Davidson’s character isn’t about to fall victim to the clichéd scene set up by Kenan Thompson.

SNL: Drill Sergeant

SNL: Drill Sergeant

In one of a handful of non-political sketches from his latest SNL appearance, Alec Baldwin plays a drill sergeant who has a son among his group of recruits. Naturally, he shows his boy no favoritism. Also, a cookie chillout sounds like our kind of party.

SNL: Dunkin Donuts

SNL: Dunkin Donuts

Saturday Night Live takes on the overly fake and hackneyed customers typically found in commercials, and gives us a much more realistic view of a typical customer at your neighborhood donut shop, courtesy of Casey Affleck.

SNL Celebrates Halloween

SNL Celebrates Halloween

Saturday Night Live put together a reel of some of its silliest and most memorable spooky sketches, from Laraine Newman and Richard Pryor’s classic Exorcist bit, to Bill Hader’s hilarious Vincent Price. We’re betting David S. Pumpkins will make the list next year.

SNL: The Librarian

SNL: The Librarian

Margot Robbie completely blows up an old stereotype with this hilariously weird take on the overplayed 1980s cliche of the librarian who becomes a sex kitten when she lets her hair down. Though Margot is still hot no matter what she does.

Ooh Child

Ooh Child

Directors Matt and Oz’s hilariously warped SNL digital short from a couple of years back starts out as an uplifting rendition The Five Stairsteps’ 1970 classic, but quickly turns into an episode of The Sopranos.

SNL: Farewell Mr. Bunting

SNL: Farewell Mr. Bunting

A group of prep school students is upset that their school has fired their beloved teacher, Mr. Bunting (Fred Armisen), so they’re going to stand up for what they believe in. We won’t give away the punchline, but the payoff is well worth the lengthy setup. Well played, SNL.

SNL: Near Death Experience

SNL: Near Death Experience

After being abducted by aliens, Kate McKinnon’s hilariously uncouth Ms. Rafferty shares another of her out of body experiences, which is decidedly less awe-inspiring than what her friends encountered after heading towards the light after a car wreck.

SNL: Mercedes AA Class

SNL: Mercedes AA Class

Saturday Night Live guest host Julia Louis-Dreyfus pokes fun at electric cars with a hilarious mock commercial for Mercedes-Benz’ new green luxury vehicle – an amazing new car which runs on battery power, yet needs no charging stations or power outlets.

SNL: Pogie Pepperoni’s

SNL: Pogie Pepperoni’s

A couple of dudes get hired by one of those kids’ pizza party joints, a job that most of us would put towards the bottom of the list of desirable workplaces, but these guys just can’t seem to contain their enthusiasm for their awesome new careers.

SNL: Mafia Meeting

SNL: Mafia Meeting

A group of mobsters meet up to discuss a very serious issue, but nobody can seem to concentrate on the business at hand, thanks to the performer up on stage. Peter Dinklage seems to have borrowed his wig from Sia, and his song from DEVO in this silly SNL sketch.
