Jimmy Fallon & Jon Hamm, 'Saturday Night Live'Robert Smigel's signature creation returned to 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) with another installment of 'The Ambiguously Gay Duo.' But this time, he took the superhero buddy parody to the next level with a "flesh ray" that turned the entire cast into live-action.

The story was as you'd expect, but made even funnier when you replace the animated Ace and Gary with Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon respectively. The costumes, stretching and innuendo were even funnier.

The pair were joined by Steve Carell as Bighead, Stephen Colbert as Dr. Braino, Fred Armisen as Lizardo and Ed Helms as a Two-Face inspired villain. We loved the fight scene between the Duo and the henchmen, but not nearly as much as their "good stretch" with the super-villains looking on.

Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon Team Up for Live-Action 'Ambiguously Gay Duo' on 'SNL'

Ambiguously Gay Duo, Jimmy Fallon, Jon HammIt's been almost four years since we last saw crime-fighting duo Ace and Gary stop a bad guy with a slew of unintentional sexual innuendos on 'Saturday Night Live.' But last night, during the Ed Helms-hosted penultimate episode of season 36, the Ambiguously Gay Duo returned in a very special installment of Robert Smigel's Saturday TV Funhouse.

The cartoon started out normally, but halfway through turned from animation to live-action, with former 'SNL'-er Jimmy Fallon and frequent 'SNL' host Jon Hamm playing the flesh-and-blood superheroes. Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, who originally voiced the caped heroes, played the live versions of Brain-io and Big Head, with Ed Helms and Fred Armisen as two of their evil counterparts.

Watch the skit after the jump, and tell us: What did you think of the live-action Ace and Gary? What about the rest of last night's 'SNL'?

The Dana Carvey Show: Complete Series - DVD review

The Dana Carvey ShowI had forgotten how very funny The Dana Carvey Show was until several months ago when I decided to watch a bunch of episodes online. It may sound cliched to say, but I think this was an underrated show, ahead of its time, and would probably survive for a few more seasons today on Comedy Central or FX or FOX. I can picture that.

We won't get a revival, of course, but we now have a great DVD set (in stores today) to keep forever. All of the episodes are here (including one that didn't even make it to ABC), and a couple of good extras.

The Dana Carvey Show: Episode 2 - VIDEO

(S01E7) Originally aired on April 30, 1996.

It's easy to forget just how funny this show was. It's not just that it had a bunch of funny material and a talented cast (including Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, and Robert Smigel), it's that the batting average for each show was damn good. There's more funny stuff in each 30 minutes of a Dana Carvey Show episode than in 90 minutes of Saturday Night Live or even SCTV. No dead moments to sit through. I'm not sure why this show was so short-lived (other than the fact that the first episode featured Carvey as President Clinton, suckling a bunch of cats on his teats). And ratings, ratings, blah, blah, blah.

It was actually kinda hard to pick a standout episode since so many episodes have a lot of great stuff. But I think the video after the jump has some classic moments.
