SNL Flashback: Bruce Springsteen Visits Weekend Update for Thanksgiving

Not to be unkind, but Adam Sandler and Kevin Nealon fall near the very bottom of my list of favorite Saturday Night Live cast members. Nealon's tenure as host of SNL's Weekend Update was just plain awful, and the fact that Sandler can command between $20 and $40 million per picture tells me all I need to know about just how morally bankrupt the entertainment industry has become. But the pair did manage to score with the following Thanksgiving-themed sketch, which aired on November 20, 1993, and featured a holiday visit from Bruce Springsteen:

NBC will air a special episode of Saturday Night Live tonight at 9 PM (8:00 Central) featuring some of the show's best Thanksgiving-related sketches of the past 40 years. Sounds like fun.
