Totally Cool 60 Second Weekend Update (Better Than SNL)

Remember the days of Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin, Kevin Nealon & Tina Fey’s Weekend Updates, and Lonely Planet videos? Remember when Ashlee Simpson was busted lip-syncing on live TV, then covered up doing a hoedown dance?

Not sure about you, I used to watch SNL religiously every Saturday night. Guaranteed smiles and gut-busting laughs.

But…

…I hear SNL (Saturday Night Live) isn’t doing too well with their new cast. True?

Either way, here’s some fun “stuff”-in-a-box that’s guaranteed to put a smile on yo’ face this weekend- and actually every week:

“What about the rest of us who watch So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars? There’s no place for them to…” Read rest of feature on Want To Dance website
