"Hollywood Minute" was a weekly sketch on Saturday Night Live. It consisted of David Spade sitting behind a desk viciuosly lampooning celebrities. The "Hollywood Minute" was originally a section of "Weekend Update" but in the 1996 season it got an off-shoot called "Spade in America" which was basically that exact same format, but Spade got his own desk.
Memorable jokes include:
- "Roseanne threw a massive tantrum and walked out on the set of her show this week. Oh wait, did I say this week? I meant every week."
- "I like Friends. I especially liked it back when I first saw it... and it was called Seinfeld" —said while sitting next to Jennifer Aniston.
- "Ally McBeal, maybe she should try an 'Ally McMeal'."
- Again, to Jennifer Aniston: "Hey, Jen, I think I know sombody else with your haircut—America."
- Pondering whether or not Fleetwood Mac should still be allowed to refer to themselves as legends: "Fleetwood Mac were singing 'Don't Stop.' I've got a message for the new Fleetwood Mac—DO stop! Stop touring, performing, saying you're legends."
"Hollywood Minute" was also the name of an entertainment news segment on CNN's Headline News network in the 1980s
