Dana Carvey, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'If you let Dana Carvey talk long enough, he's almost always sure to find his way to talking about Arnold Schwarzenegger, as it is one of his best impressions. On 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), Carvey said that he thinks the former California governor is simply overwhelmed with testosterone.

"When he wakes up in the morning, he's like a giant penis Frankenstein," Carvey said. "'I gotta have sex with something!'"

The only solution for that situation, according to Carvey, is to service these needs every morning, and perhaps as often as needed throughout the day. Once this is taken care of, the charming Schwarzenegger we all know and love returns immediately.

Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. Have a Heart to Heart

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 15th 2010 9:02PM
I've always wondered what it would be like to watch George Bush Sr. and George Bush Jr. have a sit-down. It must the most awkward fly-on-the-wall conversation since King Richard III told Henry Stafford he was going to have to make some "cutbacks."

Now thanks to the people at Funny or Die, now I know. And knowing is half the battle.

The site released some cutting room floor footage from their recent "Presidential Reunion" PSA directed by Ron Howard featuring some funny, improvised dialogue between Dana Carvey and Will Ferrell as the presidential father and son.

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Kim KardashianThere's nothing like knocking back a few shots with friends. You know, a few beers, some pretzels, a couple shots of Quick Trim ... Yes, you, too, can be part of the popular crowd, and lose weight at the same time!

Kim Kardashian brought along a bottle of Quick Trim to share with Jay Leno and Dana Carvey on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (11:35PM ET on NBC).

Pay close attention to Leno when the shots are passed out.

'SNL's' Presidential Reunion Video Hits Funny or Die

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2010 8:45PM
Nearly 30 years of one of American television's most storied and beloved traditions (i.e. portraying our presidents as moronic simpletons whose inability to tie their own shoes could send the country to Defcon 3) came to a glorious fountain of awesomeness at Funnyordie.com.

The website premiered a new public service announcement on federal finance laws directed by Ron Howard in the form of a very funny "Presidential Reunion" sketch that features the likes of Will Ferrell, Darrell Hammond, Dana Carvey, Dan Aykroyd and even Chevy Chase reviving their classic impressions of former presidents including (respectively) George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr., Jimmy Carter and (the most hilarious in my opinion) Gerald Ford who come together to help the beleaguered Barack Obama, played by Fred Armisen. Jim Carrey also stepped in the room to play Ronald Reagan probably because Randy Quaid is nuttier than a Payday bar these days.

Holy 'Saturday Night Live' presidents reunion, Batman!

In a dream, Armisen's Barack Obama is visited by Hammond as President Clinton, Carvey as President Bush Sr., Aykroyd as President Carter, Chase as President Ford, Ferrell as President Bush Jr and Carey as President Reagan.

Leno Weekly: Bill Cosby, Jeff Dunham, Dana Carvey and more!

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 17th 2009 2:09AM
Bill CosbyThursday's return of 30 Rock afforded a pretty fun segue into The Jay Leno Show. 30 Rock has always been a little self-aware, and here they took that to the next level. During the closing credits, Jack (Alec Baldwin) said to Liz (Tina Fey), "Step into the light, Lemon. There's nothing wrong with being fun and popular and just giving people what they want." He then turns directly to the camera and adds: "Ladies and gentlemen, Jay Leno."

Unfortunately, when we cut to The Jay Leno Show, his dancing girls (an homage to Jenna's video in 30 Rock) were better at looking good in their tight shorts than they were at dancing. Then, after Leno came out, we got to overhear a woman wanting to get something signed. "Can I leave it?"

I did enjoy the smooth transition into the show. It creates a sense of synergy on the network where you feel like all these shows are one big happy family. Except for Southland. But I guess there's always that one relative nobody wants around ... Hey, I just wrote a Jay Leno joke!

Sketch Comedy Saturday: The Dana Carvey Show

This installment of Sketch Comedy Saturday is less about you pining for new episodes of Saturday Night Live and more about me having an excuse to use this old image of Stephen Colbert with a puppy. It makes me sick, it's so adorable. Unfortunately, The Dana Carvey Show wasn't just twenty-some minutes of Mr. Colbert nonchalantly holding baby animals, but it was still a pretty funny program.

Why isn't Jan Hooks famous?

by Eliot Glazer, posted May 9th 2009 12:50PM
Radner. Louis-Dreyfus. Poehler. Fey. Shannon.

jan hooks snlSuffice it to say, the number of women who became famous on Saturday Night Live before graduating to solo success is few and far between. Sure, Gilda Radner can be considered a pioneer in the art of sketch comedy. And Julia Louis-Dreyfus undoubtedly honed her comedic skills before becoming a sitcom icon on Seinfeld. And, yes, Tina Fey can easily be considered a heroine to comedy nerds everywhere who have witnessed her climb from Weekend Update anchor to Mean Girls scribe to single-handedly decimating the vice presidential chances of one certain gun-wieldin', six-pack-totin' Alaskan governor.

But, sadly, the number of men who left Studio 8 for the superstardom of Planet Hollywood (not the theme restaurant) easily outnumbers the ladies. For every Amy Poehler, there's a Will Ferrell. And a Bill Murray. And a Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler (although, to be fair, there's also a David Gary Kroeger, A. Whitney Brown, and Charles Rocket for every Melanie Hutsell, too). (And for the record, no, you shouldn't recognize those names.)

The Not Ready for Prime Time Players who made it to the big time: 1986-2006

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 24th 2008 12:04PM

The SNL cast of the early 1990s -- one of the most successful during the show's runAs AOL Television continues their look at the 50 Best TV Comedies -- Ever with numbers 20-11, we here at TV Squad are also looking at television comedy, but with a slightly skewed difference. Last week, we took a look at the Saturday Night Live cast members from 1975-1985 that made it to the big time. This week, we focus on the SNL casts from 1986 to 2006.

Aside from the first season of Lorne Michaels' return to the show he created and the 1994-95 season, this period was a very successful one for SNL, introducing a slew of characters and sketches that fans of the show still talk about today. It also produced a good number of Not Ready for Prime-Time Players who went on to bigger things in television and the movies (and some theater as well). Sometimes those bigger things were movies or television shows based on characters developed on SNL.
