Desperate SNL Releases 'Best Of Melanie Hutsell' DVD

NEW YORK—Having already produced best-of anthologies of such cast members as Will Ferrell, Phil Hartman, and Eddie Murphy, as well as compilations of popular guest hosts, Saturday Night Live on Tuesday released The Best Of Melanie Hutsell, a look back at the blonde woman who did the Jan Brady impressions.

"She was one of the original 'Bad Girls of SNL,' along with [Ellen] Cleghorne and [Beth] Cahill," reads a description on the back of the DVD, which features a bonus documentary titled "The Myth, the Legend: The Genesis of 'Delta Delta Delta.'" "At last, every single minute of Hutsell's classic performances are together on one DVD. From Tonya Harding to Tori Spelling to the time she had a line in one of Rob Schneider's 'Makin' Copies' sketches, Melanie did it all."

SNL also plans to release a two-hour retrospective, The Best Of The LeBron James Episode From Earlier This Year, in time for Christmas.
