'The Best of Fridays'
The success NBC has had with "Saturday Night Live" inspired ABC to try its own variation in the early 1980s. Some talents who would go on to bigger fame, including "Seinfeld" factors-to-be Michael Richards and Larry David, were involved in the comedy sketches here.
As seen in this collection of 16 episodes, the show also borrowed the "SNL" approach of featuring weekly guest hosts (such as William Shatner and the infamous Andy Kaufman) and musical acts (i.e. the Cars and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers). DVD extras: "The Andy Kaufman Incident: What Really Happened?" featurette; cast-and-writers-reunion featurette; photos. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
