Despite their best efforts, the professionals at Saturday Night Live find themselves laughing right along with us every now and then. It’s such a storied tradition that Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler even sang a song about breaking during the show’s 40th anniversary special.
Although the performers are supposed to avoid it at all costs, getting the giggles during sketches has led to some of the funniest moments in SNL history, and since notorious mid-sketch laugher Jimmy Fallon is returning to host this week, we’re looking back at some of those classic crack-ups.

Earlier today, we reportedly the sad news that Hollywood has lost another legend, with comedian Don Rickles passing away at the age of 90.

When the cast of Will & Grace reunited for a sketch supporting Hillary Clinton, it was the first time Debra Messing had been the same room with all three of her former costars - Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally - in over 10 years. For any fan of the long-running sitcom, that fact might be hard to believe (you're telling me Karen Walker and Jack McFarland don't hang out every day?!), but it's also the reason NBC's upcoming revival of the series is going to be that much sweeter. As fans of the show might remember, the eighth season finale ends with a pretty massive time jump, which sees Grace and Will reuniting in 2026 after years of feuding, but ends on a happy, hopeful note. How will the reboot continue their story? With information about the show being kept extremely close to the vest, we recently sat down with Messing »

I’ve mentioned that I’ve been against a Will and Grace reboot for a long time now. To be honest I’ve never been a fan of the show but I’ve always respected the hell out of it. When a show is that popular you know they’re doing something right. It was just never my cup of tea. And the show’s cast have all gone on to have great careers after the show ended, which is quite rare in comedy sitcom history. So now that Eric McCormack, Megan Mullaly, Debra Messing and Sean Hayes are back on the set of Will and
