Watching Saturday Night Live in the streaming video era is often an exercise in frustration. Maybe there will be something outrageously funny (this happens every other week, maybe?), but while it's always more entertaining to watch whatever happens when it's actually on, you can save yourself a lot of trouble by just waiting until clips show up on Facebook or some blog the next day. Of course, some of you might have a social life and are actually doing something out with actual people on Saturday nights, too busy to care about network television. I used to be among you once. Enjoy it while it lasts.
However, if you're going to watch any episode of the show, tomorrow's season finale should be worthwhile, if only for the re-appearance of the "Dick in a Box" guys, played by this week's host Justin Timberlake and SNL cast member Andy Samberg. TMZ leaked a photo of the guys in costume taping a segment for this week's show, with special guests Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson.
If you need to catch up or just want to recall the memories of the previous two installments, the wildly unsafe for work videos are below the cut.
