It's from an episode of Saturday Night Live from a few years back.

Eh, not really. Everything worth watching from SNL's last few years is on the web now anyway. If you want an exhaustive "Quality Post mike Meyers SNL experience" hop online and track down all 30 watchable minutes. It won't take long, as almost all of them are either "TV Funhouse" or "Jeopardy" parodies.

Now, if you want a "Quality 90's and beyond SNL Experience" you can hunt down the "Wayne's Wold" skits as well. At that point, you'll have all the actually funny moments from the last 17 years of Saturday Night Live.

Let's put it this way.

Will Ferrell really IS the funniest performer to come out of SNL since Mike Meyers.

Think about that.

At the time he did "Elf" it was quite literally his best work, and he was STILL SNL's high water mark.

There's actually a very good reason for the SNL quality decline. A lot of performers were using SNL as a lunching ground, taking their acts, and often their characters with them to movies / television. "The Blues Brothers" was the first major example of this.

Think of all the comedic stars who got their first big break on SNL. Until the late 80's most the big American / Canadian comics were SNL Alumni.

The suits behind SNL got tired of all their good performers leaving. Their solution consisted of draconian contracts that made it harder to leave, and gave SNL a bigger slice of the profits when one did.

The result was predictable. Instead of having the stranglehold on talent that the SNL suits expected, they suddenly saw the more talented performers choosing alternate career paths, ones that bypassed SNL. This was true of writers as well as performers.

Within a few years, people were no longer watching SNL to see who the next big stars would be, they were watching it because they had nothing better to do on a Saturday night.

They alienated all the top notch talent, ensuring that only writers and performers who were desperate would sign up with them.

SNL is no longer the breeding ground for new talent, but a wasteland of people of marginal and questionable talent. There are exceptions, the occasional bit of talent that makes a major business mistake by signing with SNL, but they are few and far between.

Since when does ifilm allow people to post their videos in blogs? It's about time they didn't force people to watch their ads and delay their video enjoyment.
