DVD Purgatory: 'Spring Breakdown'

Spring Breakdown
In between box-office heaven and unreleased hell lies DVD Purgatory, where movies with popular actors, big budgets and bigger problems rest in eternal damnation on the shelves of your local Blockbuster.

April 16th, 2009 10:09am EDT
Scott Adsit
In the pilot episode of the Emmy Award winning 30 Rock, Scott Adsit's character, Pete Hornberger, is fired. In an example of art imitating life, Scott himself was, at least at first, also being cut from the show.

Scott was nice enough to discusses with us that very incident along with his roots at Second City, his time on Mr. Show, his favorite moments on 30 Rock and answers some reader qu...

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...
