Madonna/Simple Minds
1985-11-09
No cold opening. In her monologue, the host Madonna talks about her and Sean Penn's recent secretive wedding and shows mockumentary clips from it. Hell beer commercial carries a warning for the soul. The Reagans spend a quiet evening with Prince Charles and Lady Di at the White House but tongues get loose after a few drinks and Nancy gets frisky. The musical guest Simple Minds perform their song Alive and Kicking. Twitchy street fences Jones & Jones offer the best cheapest goods in town. Dennis Miller makes his first appearance as the anchorperson on the Weekend Update. He comments on the USSR's paranoid reaction to Halley's Comet, the US and USSR's peace talks, Georgia's ironic anti-gay law, Ferdinand Marcos hold over the Philippines elections, the passing of Orson Welles, the new way to throw away the garbage, Libya, the Palestinian PLO and Jehovah's Witnesses clash, clinical death record, the Beatrice Company expansion, Louis Farrakhan's similarities to Pee-wee Herman, the ironic dilemma of illegal immigrant and US lottery winner Jose Caballero, the controversial policy of the World News Agency and Jordan King Hussein's arms deal with the Philadelphia police department. Finally, Dennis makes the wish of SNL's viewer Bobby to take on major league baseball pitcher Goose Gossage come true but hubris intervenes. Madonna performs a funny version of A-ha's Take On Me on a Spanish variety show La Cucaracha Motel. Penn bets the audience that he'll pull off a magic trick with cards before his partner Teller drowns in a tightly locked tank filled with water but things don't go as he planned. National Inquirer Theater's questionable reenactment of the violent death of Marylin Monroe involves the Kennedy brothers and a mentalist. Simple Minds perform their song Sanctify Yourself. The host of the Twilight Zone-esque Limits of the Imagination intervenes during the story. An awkward movie shoot with an ironic twist portrays a gay actor's fear of "Pinklisting", a new scare in Hollywood caused by the AIDS outbreak. An African American teenage mother promotes her educational "I Don't Want a Baby" coloring book.

1985-12-07
In cold open, President Reagan ignores Dr. Federico's appeal to use nukes against an incoming killer comet. In his monologue, jet-lagged John Lithgow mistakes the live show for a pre-show dress rehearsal. Hell beer ad has a warning for your soul. Uptight family man Bob Danielson has something up his behind. Master thespian Jonathan Yankolovichy and his mentor Baudelaire have a deadly acting duel. Texan car salesmen Rudy Randolph wants to sell you a Rolls-Royce. A time-wasting ad successfully wastes your time.

Garry Shandling/Los Lobos
1987-05-16
In the cold opening, President Reagan's former national security adviser Robert McFarlane has an emotional breakdown during his testimony at the Iran-Contra congressional hearing. In the opening monologue, the episode's host, comedian Garry Shandling, talks about his wacky ex girlfriend. Garry decides to do his first sketch, in which his character is to return an item to a clothing store without the receipt, in the same breaking-the-fourth-wall vein as his sitcom "It's Garry Shandling's Show (1986)" works, but his co-stars in the sketch, Jan and Phil, aren't all that happy about it. Dana's recurring character Puppy, the high class professional cat burglar, gets a visit from police inspector Phil. Can Puppy resist acting like a dog to avoid suspicion? Next, Garry shares his problems with his abusive mother with a support group, who then decides to intervene with his mother Jan on his behalf. However, Garry isn't telling them the whole story and the truth turns out to be much more twisted and psycho-sexual in nature than they thought. Musical guest, the popular L.A. rock band Los Lobos, play their song "Is This All There Is". SNL's regular anchorperson Dennis Miller talks news including U.S. Senator from Colorado Gary Hart's failed run for the Democratic nomination for President in 1988, The PTL Club's reported mismanagement of funds, late CIA director William J. Casey, the Iran-contra affair, New York City's AIDS awareness cartoon campaign, the reported disappearance of 10 million Disneyland dollars, overpopulation reports, the Bernhard Goetz case and the Reagans. Dana as Jimmy Stewart then shows up to passionately talk to Dennis about the controversial "black and white film colorization" senate hearings. In an elite restaurant, Nora and Jon perform, in French accents, a spoof version of Judy Collins' song Send In The Clowns. Tracey Ullman's short shows what a terrible self-absorbed new mother she is and she pays an ironic price for it. Gary and Victoria, stuck in the economy class, become victims of their inconsiderate fellow passengers, who keep spitting on them. Los Lobos returns to perform One Time One Night. Finally, Dana and Jan celebrate their anniversary in a restaurant by fighting and verbally abusing each other until Garry, the waiter, intervenes.

A woman(Janeane Garofalo) in a commercial pitching the latest plumbing product; "Bathroom Monkey." On "Coffee Talk," Linda Richman's latest guest is a man(Travolta) who takes his Barbara Striesand impersonations a little too far... and oddly, she's okay with that. Dracula(Travolta, again) invites a young couple into his castle, spends half the night trying to disprove their assumptions that he's gay with disastrous results. Two Guys from a Religious Cult(David Spade & Adam Sandler) do the weather on Weekend Update. Quentin Tarantino brings the Sweathogs to the big screen with his remake of "Welcome Back, Kotter," adding a couple of surprise guests along the way. At a women's self-defense course, a mock-assailant(Chris Elliot) gets more than his fair share of crotch-kickings and other clobberings. Larry King interviews Marlon Brando(Travolta) from his Beverly Hills home after Brando was accused of anti-semitism for the second time. A boss keeps two of his workers who hate each other in a cramped office. A dope-dealing mob boss(Travolta) genuinely can't hear the insults and threats from his victims.

Hugh Jackman/Mick Jagger
2001-12-08
Austrialian actor Hugh Jackman hosts this entertaining Christmas installment, with musical guest Mick Jagger. The "cold opening" features Will Farrell as George W. Bush, and Daryl Hammond as Al Gore speaking on the phone, as Gore hopes to negotiate possible new role for himself in the White House. Condy Rice and Dick Cheney listen bored, and Donald Rumsfeld eventually cuts the meeting short. In the opening monologue, after discarding other ideas, Hugh Jackman launches into a heartfelt rendition of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," backed up by the ladies in the cast. Skits include "Jared's Room," the web-cast from dread-locked Jimmy Fallon's dorm room, with Horatio Sanz as his stoner buddy, and Jackman as the nerd in the room next door. Jeff Richards as "Drunk Girl" makes a hilarious appearance on "Weekend Update." Next Jackman plays a doll designer in "Hello Dolly," where he presents some baby dolls doing unusual activities. Soon Jimmy Fallon and Mick Jagger square off through a mirror, as Fallon expertly imitates the rock icon as they both try to decide what moves to use on the program. Maya Rudolph aptly lampoons Donatella Versace, smoking in her bathtub as she interviews guests on her self-promoting show. Jackman plays a hot German male model (who's stayed with Donatella for eight months), and Mick Jagger does an expert Karl Lagerfeld. Lastly, Hugh Jackman recalls his Christmases in Australia, where a boxing kangaroo would visit each year. When Jackman's Dad, portrayed by Will Farrell, failed to best the kangaroo in a bout, the beast would take unfair advantage of the Dad in a rude way. Eventually, the young Jackman and his sister wonder if their Dad isn't purposely letting the kangaroo win.

Tom Brady/Beck
2005-04-16
This episode of April 2005 opens with Chris Parnell posing as beleaguered House of Representives Majority Leader Tom Delay. The opening credits roll and musical guest Beck and host Tom Brady are announced. Tom Brady soon takes the stage, and is soon joined by most of the cast to sing an outrageously egotistical song about himself. A fake commercial for an alternative to Viagra is show next. First skit then has Tom Brady at a carnival midway trying in vain to throw a football through a hole in the wall about six feet away. After that, Darryl Hammond impersonates Dr. Phil McGraw, and grills insensitive husband Tom Brady because he has no "emotional intelligence." Next is an involved episode of "The Falconer," which has the Falconer and Donald switching bodies. Tom Brady has a small part as a lost hiker. The TV funhouse segment is a mock industrial training film entitled "Sexual Harassment And You." It is filmed in 1950's style, and features Fred Armisen and Tom Brady as office workers who know the wrong and correct ways to approach women in the workplace. Next, Tom Brady appears in a genie costume to promote "Tom Brady's Falafal City," an Indian restaurant that he supposedly owns. Beck performs his first selection at this point. Following Beck is the "Weekend Update," with Tina and Amy, who are joined by a surprise visit by Jiminy Glick, an alter-ego of Martin Short. Next obnoxious and hyperactive "tween" Caitlyn torments her step-dad and her "Uncle Scott," played by Tom Brady. Then comes a fake episode of VH1's "Behind the Music," detailing the phenomenon of the 1985 Chicago Bears and their hit, "The Superbowl Shuffle. Tom Brady plays a head-banded Jim MacMahon. Another Beck performance comes at this point. The next skit features Maya Rudolph as a inebriated lounge singer, with Tom Brady accompanying her in a way not unlike Kenny G. The final skit has Tom Brady playing himself as he is challenged by Seth Meyers as Peyton Manning and Keenan Tompson as Donavon McNabb's mother. Lastly Tom Brady thanks Beck, the cast of SNL, and says goodnight.

John Mulaney/Jack White
2018-04-14
Robert Mueller interrogates President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, Meet the Parents-style. .John Mulaney hates modern party music almost as much as he hates captcha.

The Weekend Update covers such topics as President Trump's ongoing scandals and the Facebook data privacy scandal, while Fox News' host Laura Ingraham comments on businesses boycotting her show over her incendiary comments, and LaVar Ball overpraises his son's basketball genius. An 80s sitcom about body-swapping called "Switcheroo" with an extremely uncomfortable incestuous plot line is returning to TV, so a reporter interviews its creator. At the plastic surgeon's office, a woman tries to convince her boyfriend not to remove his horn implants. Jack White performs his song "Connected by Love." Parody of the Real Wives franchise closes the show.
