1. Those have been my favorite sketches on SNL.

Burt Reynolds and Sean Connery - what a hoot. And most other gameshow sketches too, especially if Keenan Thompson if involved.

4. He liked the skit.

It should be mentioned that Trebek stoically endures every “Jeopardy” sketch drowning in hopeless disbelief for the celebrity stupidity around him, so for Ferrell’s last episode as an SNL cast member, the real Alex Trebek made a cameo. Trebek said that he loved SNL’s “Jeopardy” sketches and was “extremely disappointed when Will left. We’ve never had any contestants as ornery as the Sean Connery character that Darrell Hammond portrays. I’ve been asked how I would feel if we had Sean Connery on Celebrity Jeopardy! I tell everyone I’d just walk up to him and punch out his lights.”

7. Gene Roddenberry loved the Last Voyage of Starship Enterprise skit.

That episode won an Emmy.

The cool breed get it. Of COURSE Trebek loved the skit.

8. Como, Connery, and the Chair...

man of the Board.

Not sure what Connery thought of his portrayal but I recall reading that Sinatra did not care for his..




Perry Como hated this SCTV skit with the great Eugene Levy...
