According to this SNL Digital Short.

In honor of his new program, we’ve put together nine ridiculously funny Norm MacDonalnd moments. It’s a great way to pad an article with Youtube videos.
Dana Carvey hosted SNL this weekend, and Mike Myers joined him for the show’s cold open, featuring a brand new installment of Aurora, Illinois’ favorite public access show, Wayne’s World.

I don't watch "Saturday Night Live" anymore, but I do watch the popular videos that make their way to the web the following Monday. This week, Jon Hamm hosted with musical guest Rihanna. Of course Andy Samberg and Rihanna did a digital short sequel to "Shy Ronnie" entitled "Ronnie and Clyde." It's not as funny as the first, but Rihanna is hot and I like that she returns to the bank to snag hostage Jon Hamm so she can bang him.
Jon Hamm also appeared in a sketch in which he parodies Best Cry Ever Guy. If you don't know who that is, shame on you for not being more addicted to the Internet. You can check out the original video here and then the 'SNL'-ized, Hamm-ized version after the jump.
"Saturday Night Live’s" new cast member Jay Pharoah does an impeccable Denzel Washington. He did a sketch about Washington working retail as research for a part, and Pharoah totally captured Washington’s sound, his cadence, his laugh. Washington heard about that a lot as he spoke to reporters about his new movie, Unstoppable.
The thing is, when I asked him if he heard the impression, he kind of started doing the impression back to me. He’s in a press conference with costars Rosario Dawson and Tony Scott. From the opening laughter to the way he turns the question around on me and tries to prod me, that’s exactly how Pharoah played it.
After the jump, take a listen to an audio clip of Washington sounding very much like the "SNL" version of Denzel Washington.
Amy Poehler will host the 36th season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" on September 25 with musical guest Katy Perry. That's on a Saturday. Considering that everyone is either leaving (Will Forte) or getting fired (possibly Jenny Slate), the "SNL" alum and star of "Parks and Recreation" might have to calm the nerves of newbie cast members.
Hopefully it won't turn out like last year's season premiere, in which Jenny Slate uttered the word "f*ckin'" on live television. You can't do that kind of stuff, Jenny Slate! Now her head is on Lorne Michaels's chopping block. I don't watch the show anymore, but I've been told by people who do that Slate is groan-worthy. If you're going to shoot off at the mouth like sailor you should at least get people laughing. Off with her head, Lorne! (Deadline)
Sorry all you Fart Face fans, but the man behind the character you love so dearly is packing his fart face up and traveling on. Will Forte will not return to "Saturday Night Live" for the show's 36th season. Neither NBC nor Forte's people would offer a P.C. response as to why, but apparently the split is "amicable," like they always are according to lawyers.
The actor is now free to pursue other projects that aren't on Saturday night or live. The question is, can he remain relevant in movies for long if he's not continuely exposed to fans on "SNL"? MacGruber didn't do him any favors. I think Forte's a funny guy and all, but he's not exactly a household name like Will Ferrell was when he decided to jump Lorne Michael's ship. Unless your household is particularly fond of twisted, weird-ass sketches. In which case, your family should have dinner together more often. (Movieline)
Bad news for MacGruber and Co. Despite a relentless Internet marketing campaign and surprisingly positive reviews (relatively speaking), the film has completely tanked at the box office. The Village Voice is reporting that the SNL spin off pulled in a paltry $4.1 million over the weekend, included a disastrous $1.5 million from its opening night. Even with a budget of only $10 million, the results are disappointing. And the worst part of it all is that MacGruber's failure has basically killed any chance of me selling my Goat Boy spec script. Screw you, Will Forte! You've crushed my dreams, yet again! (Box Office Mojo)
With the Will Forte vehicle MacGruber due out in theaters this Friday, I decided to look into the funny little history of "Saturday Night Live's" adventures on the silver screen. Generally the movies were spun off from their more popular sketches (how the Roxbury guys were popular, I'll never know).I wanted to grade SNL spinoffs that were regular sketches with regular cast members. I also wanted to compare the merits of each using the two only barometers for success that Hollywood has: critical reception and, of course, money. Further, I studied a particular SNL cast member, and their career success as compared to their SNL movie vehicle.Here are the results.
