SNL 40: Local 4 anchors' and reporters' favorite sketches


As Saturday Night Live is set to celebrate its 40th anniversary Sunday night, we've been talking quite a bit at Local 4 about our favorite SNL sketches. Really, there are so many that it's nearly impossible to create a comprehensive "best of" list.

But everyone has their favorite moments, and here are some selections from Friday afternoon's anchors and reporters. And check back with ClickOnDetroit all weekend for more classic Saturday Night Live moments.


Guy Gordon: The Royal Deluxe II "It's a beautiful baby, and a beautiful car!"


Ruth Spencer: Roseanne Roseannadanna "I, Roseanne Roseannadanna..."


Bernie Smilovitz: Bill Murray as lounge singer Nick Winters (NOTE: Nick Winters clips weren't online, so here is Bill Murray apologizing on our behalf.)


Sandra Ali: Betty White's Dusty Muffins "It's surprisingly salty."


Ben Bailey: Jesse Jackson's The Question Is Moot "Who gets the car? I get the car. Why? The question is moot."


Lauren Podell: Schweddy Balls* "My balls are here for your enjoyment."


Shawn Ley: Beastie Boys musical performance (You had to know there was going to be one musical performance.)


Rod Meloni: Bass-O-Matic "The Super Bass-O-Matic '76 lets you use the whole bass."
