This episode features a clip from Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, where Jon is responding to the right-wing media's reaction to news that he will be stepping down as host of the show sometime this year.

In recognition of Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary, this episode features a couple of my favorite old SNL commercial parodies, which have been impossible to watch until recently, including Wilson Countersink Flanges, and Bad Idea Jeans. And it's not on the show, but who could forget the awesome classic Leevi's Three Legged Jeans?!
