Saturday Night Live being a comedy institution has pumped legendary comedy stars from Chris Farley to Will Ferrell, and most of these stars who first break out as a cast members on the show go on to big careers in other TV shows or movies, to triumphantly return as a host. For whatever reason, treasured American smart ass Adam Sandler has not done this since he left the show for a long movie career and a recent return to the stage for live stand up comedy until now.

Here is my personal favorite from 1993, Sandler plays a talk show host who uses his entire show to agonize over his ex-girlfriend, Denise who was played over the phone by ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ star Shannon Doherty.
