Dennis Miller is a comedian who was Weekend Update anchor on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' from 1985[[note]]during the show's 11th season, which was so fraught with mediocre writing and acting that NBC nearly had the show cancelled. Dennis Miller's turn as a Weekend Update anchor was the reason why season 11 was considered tolerable[[/note]] to 1991, making him the first long-running Weekend Update anchor[[note]]with Tina Fey tying his record and Creator/SethMeyers breaking it[[/note]] and the first ''SNL'' cast member to stay on the show for longer than five years. Prior to that, most cast members either were dropped after one or two years (or episodes in the cases of Ben Stiller, Laurie Metcalf, most of Jean Doumanian's cast[[note]]just Charles Rocket, Gilbert Gottfried, Ann Risley, Patrick Weathers, Matthew Laurence, and Yvonne Hudson, not Eddie Murphy, Joe Piscopo, Denny Dillon, and Gail Matthius[[/note]], Emily Prager, Dan Vitale, Siobahn Fallon-Hogan, Morwenna Banks, and Michaela Watkins[[note]]short-lived cast member from season 34 [2008-2009 season][[/note]]) or stayed on until their fourth or fifth year (often leaving to star in feature films or other television shows). Miller opened the door for other long-running cast members like Darrell Hammond, Phil Hartman, Tim Meadows, Kenan Thompson, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and fellow Weekend Update anchors Creator/TinaFey and Creator/SethMeyers (the only other Weekend Update anchors to stay on past the fifth-year mark).

** Subverted once by Creator/JaneaneGarofalo on his [=HBO=] show. She talked about doing a photo shoot and wanting it to be like Kim Deal of the Music/ThePixies, and ''he'' didn't get the reference, saying "I've never felt older."

** In his ''Raw Feed'' special, he trolled liberals by welcoming global warming because he hates winter, and how he didn't care if his grandkids had to live through environmental devastation. "I'm not going to be here, [[ChildrenAreAWaste what do I care?]]"

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: His schtick, and professed political ideology. He once declared himself a pragmatist, which is to say "everybody is an asshole except me."
