Saturday Night Live Spoofs Burn Notice in Game Show Skit

Buzz-Worthy Video: SNL Wants to Know What Burn Notice Is

Saturday Night Live's recent game show skits haven't killed me the way the old Jeopardy ones with Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek did — until this weekend, when Ashton Kutcher hosted. The game is called "What Is Burn Notice?" and based entirely on the notion that despite the USA show's popularity, no one really knows what Burn Notice is about.

SNL gets a lot of mileage out of the somewhat vague posters, promos and titles of the show, which I hadn't really pinpointed before (but now that they have, how many other shows fall into this category? I can think of a few). Guesses from the stumped contestants include premises like "a sexy doctor who can start fires with his mind," and "the detective team Michael Burn and Chet Notice."

Even if you do, in fact, know what Burn Notice is, you'll definitely get a kick out of the skit when you read more.
