"Saturday Night Live" did a skit last night poking fun at TCM.

Guest host for show was John Goodman and he was in the skit.

Skit was about a black and white classic film "The Christmas Whistle":

Unfortunately, Canadians who missed the show last night are unable to watch any of the video of the skit. Only Americans have that pleasure...

 

For Canadians who missed the show, a reviewer wrote this summary of the skit (have to agree it wasn't all that funny, despite Goodman):

 

"The Christmas Whistle

 

Goodman stars in this fake black and white movie presented on TCM as a father and husband who learns that every time you hear the sound of a Christmas whistle, someone is watching over you. As he tries to explain to his wife and kids (McKinnon, Pedrad, and Milhiser), the whistle keeps annoyingly going off in the background ? also maybe dad is an alcoholic and this angel with the whistle has something to do with that, and the neighbors are getting ****. Aidy Bryant gets to do one of her awesome melodramatic characters, which is good because she just hasn?t been around enough between this week and last week. This sketch is just a bit annoying thanks to the repetitive whistling sound ? it just doesn?t work as intended."
