    Eddie Murphy became a comedy legend during his early Eighties run on Saturday Night Live. But he hasn't graced the show's iconic stage since hosting an episode on December 15th, 1984 – months after leaving the series during Season Nine – with bad blood souring the relationship over the years. Now Murphy is making his long-awaited return for the series' three-hour 40th anniversary special, scheduled for February 15th. "It's just timing," the comedian-musician told News One in a recent interview. "It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it. . . They're actually having a 40th anniversary I think in two weeks. I'm going to that, and that'll be the first time I've been back since I left."

    If they said he's going to be doing Buckwheat, Mr. Robinson, Gumby skits, then maybe I'd DVR it.

    What was the last funny movie Eddie Murphy did before he became a colossal failure?

    I thought the movie where Eddie makes out with the Tranny in the car was pretty funny.

    "Lorne called and asked if I could be on the Fourtieth Anniversary show and talk about how my TV show was the only thing ever to beat SNL. But I'm way to busy for that. Right Robin? ...... Robin?"

    Howard must be in heaven. The TV show he loves to pimp the most is going to have the comedian he is modeling his late career on. Howard has been emulating how Eddie Murphy went from one of the bluest comedians in the history of comedy to doing $200 million grossing kids movies. You look at Murphy and you see where Howard got the idea of doing AGT and changing his image.

    You know what would be uproarious: forcing the SNL audience to sit through "A Thousand Words." Rotten Tomatoes score: 0.0%. Anyone who can squeeze a laugh out of that pile of dreck truly is a genius.

    He has been living off of the evaporating fumes of his 1980s fame and fortune for 30 years now. At this point, he should be crooning in Catskills supper clubs.
