Decades before the term "snarky" caught on with the public, Dennis Miller embodied that snappy, smart-alecky style of humor for six seasons (1985-91) as anchorman on the "Weekend Update" segment of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" (1975- ). Miller not only became the show's first cast member since Chevy Chase to make the parody newscast his own, he launched himself as one of the top political comedians of his generation. Following "SNL" and a failed 1992 talk show, the former stand-up comic's topical news-driven "Dennis Miller Live" (1994-2002) ran for nine successful seasons on HBO. Miller's follow-up TV effort - providing colorful commentary on "Monday Night Football" (1970- ) - proved to be a severe fumble, as his signature esoteric references and wild metaphors seemed jarringly out of place during a sports broadcast. Always anti-authoritarian, the liberal-leaning Miller shifted his political views to the right following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Miller's conversion was controversial, but it propelled him into new life as a media personality. After nearly a decade of TV flops, Miller hit it big again in 2007 via talk radio with "The Dennis Miller Show," which propelled the host back to TV by way of Fox News and World Wrestling Entertainment; all of which solidified his status as one of the more important commentators on entertainment and politics.
