Ten random things: October 11

Ten members of the Saturday Night Live Five-Timers Club:

  1. Sting (6 appearances)
  2. Dave Grohl (9 appearances)
  3. Drew Barrymore (6 appearances)
  4. Christopher Walken (7 appearances)
  5. James Taylor (6 appearances)
  6. Danny DeVito (6 appearances)
  7. Chevy Chase (8 appearances)
  8. Tom Petty (8 appearances)
  9. Candice Bergen (5 appearances)

Today is the 35th anniversary of Saturday Night Live. (Actually, during its first season, it was called NBC's Saturday Night, as ABC had premiered Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell a month earlier. ABC canceled the Cosell show in January 1976, and after obtaining the rights to the name, NBC renamed its show Saturday Night Live starting with the 17th episode of the second season.)

The Five-Timers Club was introduced in the episode that aired on December 8, 1990, on which Tom Hanks made his first appearance as guest host:

I love this skit. "Oh, please, call me Mr. Steve Martin" is one of my favorite lines ever.
