With all the shakeups at Saturday Night Live recently, and a 40th-season cast that's made up almost entirely of unknown up-and-comers, it's difficult to remember that there was a time when Studio 8H was populated by the biggest names in comedy

At one point the likes of Mike Myers, Chris Rock, Phil Hartman, and David Spade all shared screen time on the iconic late night sketch fest.

But despite opening credits that read like a who's-who of the early '90s comedy world, Adam Sandler and Chris Farley may have been the cast's biggest breakout stars.

That's why the revelation made by Sandler in a recent interview with The Daily Beast is nothing short of astonishing:

These hoes may not be loyal, but Saturday Night Live and Dancing With The Stars are sticking by Chris Brown, who will reportedly perform on both shows this fall.

T H U G

The singer's sixth studio album X is set for a September 16 release, and Brown is already lining up a full promotional schedule to push the crap out of the thing.

“In support and promotion for X, Chris will be doing the typical promotional slate to get the word out that the album is coming," says an insider.

"That will include appearances and performances on both SNL and DWTS."

“Everyone is very excited for this to happen and Chris really wants to make all of his appearances very memorable. Should be a very fun time.”

Whether that's true remains to be seen, but at least he's focused on music.

Did Leslie Jones cross a line this weekend on Saturday Night Live?

The cast member appeared on Weekend Update in response to Lupita Nyong'o being named People Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman in the World, giving praise to the actress and then going on to explain how she deserves the title of Most Useful Woman.

Especially if this were the slave era.

Referencing pre Civil War-America, Jones quipped:

"I would have never been single. I’m six feet tall and I’m strong. Strong! I mean, look at me, I’m a mandingo... I’m just saying that back in the slave days, my love life would have been way better. [Master] would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation... I would be the No. 1 slave draft pick."

Anna Kendrick hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and her most notable moment likely came in a musical sketch called "Dongs All Over the World."

For obvious reasons.

Kendrick, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Sasheer Zamata - The International Nasty Girls - singing about traveling the globe in search of ...

Well, you know.

Not unlike Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg's classic "D--k in a Box" sketch from 2006, the raunchy clip featured the fab five singing about dongs.

A lot.

Their globe-trotting itinerary leaves little time for sightseeing and is jam packed with as many dongs as they can possibly "destroy" on this planet.
