Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • I love Emilio Estevez. He is hilarious in this.

    This cast was awesomely funny and the skits in this episode was hilarious. I can't wait until someone puts it up for viewing online. "Whatcha Bench?" is insanely funny. Pearl Jam gave an excellent performance. Who doesn't love Opera Man? Adam Sandler is one of my very favorites. This was definitely one of the best ensemble by way of "The Not Ready for Prime Time Players". They were one of SNL's best. I have looked high and low for this particular episode and I am unable to find it. It is one I could watch over and over again.moreless

  • NOTES (6)

    • Sketches/segments not shown in the 60 minute version: Pearl Jam's performance of "Rearviewmirror," "Whitehouse Folder," "Poker Billy," "Herihly Boy Grandmother Sitting Service," and Deep Thoughts

    • Pearl Jam's performance on this episode ranked #97 in VH1's 100 greatest Rock and Roll moments on TV, because it was considered Eddie Vedder's tribute to Kurt Cobain.

    • Pearl Jam performed "Daughter," a tribute to Kurt Cobain, and in the closing credits Eddie Vedder pointed out the letter K, for Kurt, on his shirt, over his heart.

    • In the game show spoof "Geek, Dweeb, or Spazz," Ellen Cleghorne's character's name is "Serena Williams," and she mentions that she's a star athlete at her school. Prophetic?

    • Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam symbolically salutes his rival Kurt Cobain at the end of this episode. This was just days after Cobain had committed suicide.

    • Dana Carvey was originally scheduled to host this episode.
