    Take your pick or add your own

    1. Christopher Walken: Now Officially The Master
    a. Hardball as French Embassador: "We oppose war to be how you say douchebag." (no pause whatsoever)
    b. Blue Oyster Cult: "Look, guys (pause, cue card) I put my pants on (pause pause, cue card cue card) one leg (pause) at a time."
    c. Luvahs: "Her breath rich with far-away spices."
    2. Alec Baldwin
    a. Young Doctors In Love: "That's right, the Big C. Canker."

    3. Tom Hanks
    a. Mr Short Term Memory: "Hey, you're Tony Randall!"

    4. Kevin Spacey
    a. David Letterman Show, unbelievable imiatation of William Hurt
    b. Star Wars outtakes, unbelievable imiatation of Jack Lemmon
    C. Star Wars outtakes, unbelievable imiatation of Christopher Walken

    Worst host might have been Johnny Mosely, except it provided Amy Pohler the opportunity to do an incredibly offensive / genius parody of the Canadian Figure Skater.

    Jay Mohr does the best Christopher Walken imitation I've heard. Fromobile's is damned good too.

    Oh yeah, Tom Hanks and Kevin Spacey were the 2 best I've seen. Everytime I see the re-runs I hope to see them. I have only seen those shows once. I think Spacey did Deniro as well.

    Walken has been on there a few times right?

    I thought Jack Black was fantastic. He threw himself into the skits with pure abandon -- including playing a shirtless redneck and copping a feel on Will Ferrell.

    There is a classic Christmast epsidode from the early 90's or late 80's with Steve Martin, where he does his "Christmas Wish" list.

    That's a classic!

    Much as I hate to admit it, Britney Spears was a good host (but terrible musical guest).

    Even though I didn't think she was that great as a host I enjoyed seeing Heather Locklear. Did anyone notice that by the end of the night she had kissed everysinge male cast member as part of some skit or another?

    Best for me- David Alan Grier and Julianne Moore.

    Worst- Senator John McCain and Robert Deniro.

    I have to agree with you, she had no problem mocking herself in the name of comedy and Tracy Morgon's Doo-Doo Pie song for her was hilarious.

    John Goodman is always a good host and I think he holds the record for hosting the most.

    The Rock was good his first time around. He sucked his 2nd time.

    That was one of my favorite shows they ever did, the one with the skit with Alec Baldwin as the scoutmaster making a pass at Canteen Boy. Freakin' hilarious!

    John Goodman
    Christopher Walken


    Rob Lowe did a great show a few years back, he had a skit as Shaggy that was classic.


    I also like MJ back in the early 90's, Stuart Smalley.

    There's a book out there on Saturday night live, and it seems that Chevy Chase is pretty much universally despised.

    The book is called Live From New York

    I own it, it's a great read if your a fan of the show. They interviewed everyone, except Eddie Murphy, who apparently wants nothing to do with the show that started his career.
