best SNL sketch EVER

With seeing the SNL sketch first, the song seems really inappropriate for the original clip. I lolled when it started playing after he got shot.
I thought the more jarring part was that they crescendo into that melodramatic song and then there's a sudden immediate cut into the boilerplate pop-crap they play on ending credits.
I like how HBO does their shows - usually the ending credits theme is either a one-off standalone song or a variation on the main theme that matches the episodes' overall feel. One of the best was when Moletsante is trying to get in the music biz and they play the shitty song that his shitty rock band had been recording all episode - I forget the lyrics but they were hilarious!

it looks like NBC cracked down on most SNL content so they can peddle the shitty DVD collections of the era people REALLY want to watch

If you haven't seen Lost, DO NOT PLAY THAT FUCKING VIDEO! It's like an uberspoiler.

Lol, that wasn't too bad.
But they really need to cancel SNL, bring back Mr. Show on HBO, then edit it for television so it can be rebroadcast in SNL's place.
This. But I don't know if a watered down version would be all that great. I've seen a few episodes on Comedy Central and it was totally weird with commercials and edits. Mr. Show is definitely the best show ever created and needs to come back. I can't wait to see the new show Bob and David are working on.

^ Lol, actually, that was a joke directly tied to the video sample. Watch and it'll make perfect sense why Mr. Show would never work on broadcast TV.
Yeah I figured, Pallies was one of my favorite sketches from the show.
