John Goodman has hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ a lot—13 times, to be precise—and the veteran actor has seen plenty of sketches come and go, including a few that probably just couldn’t be salvaged (even if they did star Will Ferrell and/or a bunch of very expensive chairs). On last night’s ‘Late Night,’ Goodman shared some of his very favorites with host (and former ‘SNL’ co-writer) Seth Myers.

"Pete! What did I say?! We're not doing an Aaron Sorkin sketch!" The Aaron Sorkin parody sketch has been done before, done well, and then ceaselessly imitated. It's old material, people, and the world doesn't need any more old-- wait. Wait, no, no, we were wrong, because Seth Meyers has just breathed spectacular new life into the Aaron Sorkin sketch, thanks to a cleverly designed send-up from last night's episode of 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'
Here's a terrifying idea: what if you thought that your apartment was haunted by various ghosties, only to learn that it was you specifically that was haunted by, well, just various ghosties. This is the apparent pickle that 'SNL' star Cecily Strong finds herself in, as a medium recently advised the comedienne that her "lack of boundaries" means that she's bringing home all kinds of weird spiritual stuff. O...kay.
'Late Night' host Seth Meyers has basically invented a new subset of trivia with a consistent question he likes to ask on his late night talk show: amazing 'SNL' sketches that never aired, no matter how much their creators loved them. Meyers has made it a (totally awesome) habit to ask other 'SNL' alums who hit his show what sketches they're most bummed about never making it on the air, and the results are so far incredible.
Dear all other hosts of late night: if you were hoping to somehow sang the 'Game of Thrones' demographic by bringing stars of the hit HBO series on to your stage for a friendly chat, you're going to have to do much, much more than that now. Seth Meyers has bested you in a big way.
Have you ever wondered what Gotham City is really like? (For the sake of this exercise, please ignore that the city is a fictitious comic book construction.) Do the people there really care about Batman? What else does the city have to offer both residents and visitors? Is it nice? Where is it located? All these questions and more...well, might not be actually answered by this hilarious 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' sketch, but it comes pretty close.
Former 'SNL' head writer Seth Meyers has made it his business to bring some of those sketches cut from 'SNL' to his own 'Late Night' show, and the results have so far been uproarious. While Will Forte's cut bit got the full sketch treatment a few months ago, Bill Hader didn't need those same bells and whistles. After all, his snipped sketch just involved him putting on a weirdly nuanced impression of '60 Minutes' anchor Bob Simon.
You know what's scary? That 'Jurassic Park' never got a theme song with catchy, snappy, and applicable lyrics. You know what's even scarier? The possibility that such a song does indeed exist, and that Jeff Goldlbum wants you to hear it. No, really. He's here to sing it for you, too. Get in on this, fans of dinosaurs run amok, because this is a game-changer.
America's most patriotic newsman and late night host, Stephen Colbert's interests tend to run quite firmly to the red, white, and blue, so it should come as little surprise that the funny man is obsessed with Marvel's own Captain America. But he's not just run-of-the-mill, "oh, I like comic books" obsessed -- he's obsessed enough to land his very own Captain America cover, which he shared with 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers last night.
Seth Meyers has been taking a little bit of time off from 'Late Night' to prep for a very big, very primetime gig as host of the 2014 Emmys. He's even had to temporarily decamp to Los Angeles to get ready for the show, a trip that apparently involved some very fraught air travel. Turns out, when you're hosting the Emmys, you need TV props, and most of our most lauded shows involve items that, well, just aren't air travel friendly.
