Bush (played by Will Ferrell)—but let's just say our fine president isn't holding back at all now that he's on the last leg of his term.

How Saturday Night Live Hit a High in the '90s

Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri, Saturday Night Live

Despite stumbling through much of the 1980s, NBC's Saturday Night Live returned to its place as a comedic touchstone in the 1990s. The ratings and critical response at the time didn't always show it, but in retrospect it's hard to argue with the results. Revisit the roster of talent that passed through the halls of 30 Rockefeller Plaza during the decade and names like Chris Rock, Tina Fey, David Spade, Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell immediately jump out at you. And from "Wayne's World" to a request for "more cowbell," numerous sketches from the time still resonate in the cult read more

Basinger or Ricky Bobby: Why'd Baldwin Drop CAA?

Alec Baldwin's abrupt decision to leave CAA for as-yet-to-be-determined pastures may have been fueled in part by a video spoof posted at FunnyOrDie.com, a website cocreated by another CAAer, Will Ferrell, and placing poor Dora the Explorer on the receiving end of his answering-machine harangue. "Baldwin asked CAA to take it off [the site], and they didn't," a source tells the New York Post's Page Six. Others, though, contend that Baldwin parted ways with the 10-percentery because they still pimp his ex-wife, Kim Basinger. Baldwin's rep quips about the video spoof, "Three-year-olds everywhere are upset that Dora... and her friends are being dragged into this." Or as Swiper would say, "Oh, man!" read more
