Although it didn't quite reach "Wake Up and Smile" levels of desperation, "Saturday Night Live" opened this weekend's show with a parody of how the CBS Sports crew handled the Super Bowl XLVII power outage.
Buffalo Bills legend Steve Tasker hasn't been able to crack the list of Pro Football Hall of Fame semifinalists, but being lampooned on "SNL" is a pop-culture badge of honor.
SNL player Taran Killam played Tasker, who had his Anderson Cooper moment during the Superdome brownout. Tasker had the only working earpiece-microphone combo when the power went out and delayed the game for 35 minutes.
