A Farley motivational speaker I think made the top 10. Personally, I was not a big Farley fan. Poor man's Belushi wannabe. As for Ferrell, can't argue with his movie career, but it took him a long time to get going on the show.
I thought they were very light on the first cast. Lord and Lady Douchebag could have made the list, but I think they were light on some of what was OK in the 70s but not PC later. The Wild and Crazy Guys sketch with the vacuum cleaner smuggled out of Bratislava and the fashion models that needed to go to the nearest national park to obtain birth control? The Killer Bees? I don't even think any of the "Todd and Lisa" nerd sketches made the list. The Cheerleaders sketches were trying for that. "Mr. Luepner was born without a spine." No Fernando's Hide Away ("So Hulk, what are your Passover plans?" "When you laugh, your chest bounces like Dorothy LaMore's tush!").
As good as Samurai Delicatessen was, the best was Samurai Night Fever, with OJ Simpson.
Loved the samuri skits.
A few others:
- Richard Pryor's job interview with Chevy Chase (that could never air today)
- male synchronized swimming with Short and Shearer

For all the crap they put on, they do air some pretty funny stuff as well.
