The 10 Best Guest Stars of 'The Middle'

September 24th, 2014 3:05pm EDT
The Middle
“The Middle” is one of the most charming, underappreciated sitcoms on television today. It has attracted a similarly charming, often unsung cadre of guest stars. With the show heading into its sixth season tonight, here is a look at the best of that cadre.

1. Norm MacDonald - Norm MacDonald is a relatively successful entertainer who strikes me as someone who lives a fairly well-adjusted life. So it is amusing that as Uncle Rusty, he is basically playing himself, even though Rusty is a bit of a drifter. He excels in the sort of small-time scheme-pulling persona that Norm is mischievo...

Norm MacDonald Shares Legendary Robin Williams Story, Celebritie
Millions of people are sharing their fond memories of the late Robin Williams, who tragically passed away yesterday. Among those paying tribute was Norm MacDonald, who told an almost-unbelievable tale involving Robin.

In a series of tweets, each punctuated with "#RIPRobinWilliams," MacDonald told the story of his first time on David Letterman's show. Robin Williams was also on the show that night, which only made Norm's anxiety worse.

It was my first stand-up appearance on Letterman and I had to follow the funniest man in the world. #RIPRobinWilliams

Underrated/Overrated 'Saturday Night Live' Weekend Update Anchors

October 20th, 2008 12:48pm EDT
Kevin Nealon
Last week and for the next few, "Saturday Night Live" will move its oldest property, "Weekend Update" to primetime.

It seems we can no longer call the cast the Not-Ready-For-Primetime Players as they bring their cornerstone segment to a timeslot previously occupied by shows like "Frasier" and "Friends". This gives SNL a chance to enter the mainstream in a way it never has before, and with the endless wave of news (both straightforward and comedic) "Weekend Update" is the perfect vehicle to bring late night to primetime.

Unfortunately, those who don't like to stay up late are forc...

The 10 Greatest Cast Members Of 'Saturday Night Live'

April 7th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Eddie Murphy
Live from New York, it's Saturday Night! These seven words have been shouted from Studio 8H of Rockefeller Center since Lorne Michaels created "Saturday Night Live" in 1975. The original name of the show was simply "Saturday Night" because at the time ABC had a show entitled "Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell."

Choosing 10 of the show's best cast members is not a task to be taken lightly. We looked at what qualities go into making a perfect cast member as opposed to just picking performers who went on to greater fame after they left the show (though sometimes this happened anyw...
