Andy Samberg, Paul Reubens on 'Saturday Night Live'In the latest 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) digital short, Andy Samberg and Pee-Wee Herman (aka Paul Reubens) bonded over tequila shots. This turned into a big adventure that included riding a mechanical bull, whopping Anderson Cooper with a chair and dancing on the bar -- Pee-wee style -- to the 'Tequila' song.

The pair returned home to find their friends conducting an intervention. Even a few of Pee-wee's buddies ("Chairy?!") got serious. "You're a b-b-b-bad influence on each other," said Conky the Robot.

Saturday Night Live, Digital Short, Zach Galifianakis 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) has been a bit lackluster lately, but Zach Galifianakis managed to bring some funny back into the show as host this week. In fact, he did that just by showing up.

In the digital short, Galifianakis showed up on various TV shows like 'Law & Order,' '30 Rock,' and 'The Dr. Oz Show.' He's probably been on a lot of others and we just haven't noticed him.

Watch the 'SNL' Digital Short: Flags of the World (VIDEO)

Saturday Night Live, Digital Short, Flags of the WorldIf you missed 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) this weekend, then you missed the digital short, 'Flags of the World.'

There are a lot more flags than we originally thought. Sure, there's the American flag and the Canadian flag, but don't forget 'The Hottie and the Nottie' flag, the We Love Betty White flag, and the Neo-Nazi Potsie flag.

Let's face it. 'SNL' is nowhere near as funny as it used to be, but the digital shorts are usually at least mildly amusing. But rest assured that none come close to 'Cool Guys Don't Look at Explosions.'

Saturday Night Live: Megan Fox/U2 (season premiere)

by Annie Wu, posted Sep 27th 2009 3:03AM
jenny_slate(S35E01) Alternate title for this post: "New girl's f-bomb overshadows Megan Fox's slammin' bod."

Yes, Saturday Night Live new girl Jenny Slate's f-bomb was the most thrilling part of the show's otherwise bland 35th season premiere. It's not like we've never heard that word before, and it's not like accidental verbal naughtiness has never happened on SNL (I still distinctly remember my extra-young self watching Cheri Oteri cringing as she contributed to the swear jar), but the pain still felt fresh with hot embarrassment.

This was partially due to the fact that it's just a generally bad thing to have happen on a player's first show (and in such a mediocre sketch, at that) but mostly because of this face that she made after she caught her boo-boo. Twitter exploded with people's camera phone pics of this one moment.

Jenny Slate, welcome to the big time.

Justin Timberlake heard you wanted "Motherlover" uncensored

by Annie Wu, posted May 13th 2009 10:05AM

Oh, Justin Timberlake. You know what your audience wants and you give it to them ... uncensored-style. Hot.

In the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg gave everyone and their mom a real treat in the form of the "Motherlover" Digital Short. The video was quickly uploaded onto NBC.com and promptly exploded all over the Internet in a mildly graphic and suggestive way. It was from the actual live airing, though, so audience laughter, bleeped words, and less-than-superb sound quality were inevitable.

Saturday Night Live: Justin Timberlake/Ciara

SNL Digital Short: Motherlover
(S34E22) Justin Timberlake returned for his third turn as host and it was tough not to keep expectations pretty high. I mean, if an vengeful warlock were to suddenly put a crippling curse on his music career (like they do), Timberlake could definitely fall back on being a professional SNL host. Yes, this would become a real profession, just for him.

As usual, some sketches fell a bit flat, but Timberlake's over-confident, hammy swagger made things a little more interesting. This particular episode also gave us another legendary musical Digital Short with Timberlake and Andy Samberg and a couple of all-around MILFs. It's tough to top a surprise appearance by Leonard effin' Nimoy, but "Motherlover" was certainly the highlight of the evening. Here are some other notable video moments!

SNL to broadcast short films special

by Brad Trechak, posted May 9th 2009 3:03PM
Andy SambergDo you remember the short films that SNL broadcast through the years? It started, I think, with Mr. Bill during the Not Ready For Prime-Time Players era and currently involves the Lonely Island songs. This could explain why SNL has chosen Lonely Island and SNL member Andy Samberg to host a special broadcast of the SNL short films on May 17 at 9PM.

I'm not sure which short is my favorite. There was an old one involving children's addiction to arcade video games and a doctor would use shock therapy via a Ms. Pac Man joystick to keep kids away from them. Eddie Murphy's "White Like Me" sketch is a classic. But I was laughing just as hard at the concept of Natalie Portman as a gangster rapper. Sadly, I wasn't as impressed by "Lazy Sunday" as apparently the rest of the Internet community.

So which SNL short film was your favorite?

How Samberg and company put together D**k in a Box

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 21st 2006 12:34PM
Andy Samberg and Justin TimberlakeJust like last year, when they broke down the process of making "Lazy Sunday," The New York Times is again diving into the creation of a popular SNL Digital Short. This time, of course, they're exploring "Dick in a Box", which aired last Saturday and made its way around the Interwebs soon afterwards.

This time, the article goes over the process of getting NBC to place the uncensored version on its web site and YouTube channel. Believe it or not, after Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake recorded the video, which wasn't finished until 4 PM Saturday, Lorne Michaels had to get permission from NBC late-night chief Rick Ludwin to put the uncensored version on the web site. After Ludwin saw it and liked it, he sought permission from his bosses, NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly and NBCU Television Group CEO Jeff Zucker. I can just imagine the phone conversations...

Anyway, Samberg and his buddies Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone have come a long way from the Lonely Island days, haven't they? Before, they'd do a sketch about private parts and just slap it up on the web. Now, excutives at the highest levels have to get involved. Ah, such is the price of fame, right?
