The Funniest SNL Skits With Celebrity Parents That Make Us Laugh

Melissa McCarthy

The verdict is out on Lindsay Lohan’s cringe-worthy and cue-card reading performance on Saturday Night Live, and it doesn’t look good my friends.

Thank goodness for Melissa McCarthy, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. Especially Melissa McCarthy.

Let’s take a good look at some SNL skits from the past year that didn’t suck so we can erase the Lindsay Lohan mess that we were all forced to watch last night. Check out our gallery of some of the best celebrity parent moments on SNL and tell us what you think.

    Alec Baldwin Apologizes To Himself
    Can't a man finish a game of Words With Friends in peace? Actor Alec Baldwin went on SNL back in December to apologize to himself over the ordeal that got him kicked off an American Airlines flight and it was game over.

    We so wish these women were back on SNL full-time. Here, the two celebrity moms do a great job of spoofing my Tri-State area aunts. Love the hair, ladies. Justin Timberlake's cameo is pretty hilarious too.

  • Tina Fey as Sarah Palin 3 of 8

    We really don't need to tell you why this clip is hilarious. Tina Fey should just be Sarah Palin. She'd have my vote then.

  • Kim Kardashian’s Fairytale Divorce 4 of 8
    Kim Kardashian's Fairytale Divorce
    Ok, so Kourtney Kardashian wasn't actually in this clip, but technically she's there, so that gave us enough reason to add the funniest SNL clip of 2011 on this list. I could watch this over and over again and laugh like it was Oct. 31, 2011 and I just heard the news of Kim's divorce filing all over again. Tabloid fodder gold, people.

    I heart Melissa McCarthy and after watching this video, you should too. The woman is fearless. I so wish she'd become BFFs with Angelina Jolie already.

    Forget you, people. Forget you. Props to Cee-Lo Green for putting up with both Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna in one year.

    We love Maya in this Beyonce and Blue Ivy spoof so much, we almost wish Beyonce would actually take a stab and host SNL for one night, too. Love the Taylor Swift bit the most, though!

    After watching this video, we're all going to want a brownie husband - with caramel filling!
