6:45 – Terrific summary of the different eras of SNL since it came on the air: from John Belushi / Dan Aykroyd / Bill Murray, to Eddie Murphy / Dana Carvey / Phil Artman / Mike Meyers, to Adam Sandler / Will Ferrell / Norm Macdonald, to Tina Fey / Amy Poehler / Seth Myers / Bill Hader, and into the current cast.
