** The 40th Anniversary sketch starts going ''completely'' off the rails, starting with Turd Ferguson arriving, apparently having "driven" his podium (he claims he was late because he had to pick it up from the garage). From there, celebrities start randomly replacing one another, with Alec Baldwin's Tony Bennett suddenly replaced by Jim Carrey as Matthew McConagahey, who apparently recorded his own voiceover for it, referencing his recent Lincoln car ads.

''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' is a sketch comedy show that, despite its near-constant changing of cast members and writers and occasional [[SeasonalRot dips in quality]] (often due to the aforementioned cast and writer changes), has remained on Creator/{{NBC}} for almost 40 years (completed 40 seasons and is currently on its 41st). And it stayed around for two reasons: 1) NBC didn't want to lose the show, even in the early-to-mid 1980s when it always seemed to be teetering on the brink of cancellation, and 2) because, even at its lowest point, it still turns out some memorably funny moments (your mileage may vary, of course).
