Justin Timberlake joined Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Martin Short, Chevy Chase, Paul Simon, and Candice Bergen in the 5-timers club on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with a special opening sketch (above).

The singer and actors were on hand for a celebration that carried on throughout the show and later featured the Festrunk Brothers (Aykroyd and Martin) in a parody of "The Dating Game" (below) called "It's a Date." The retro-inspired number pitted Aykroyd and Martin's characters as disco-dancing ladies men against the "Mother Lover" singers (Andy Samberg and Timberlake), and a solo Bobby Moynihan.

You can watch more clips from the show, or the entire episode, on NBC's website.
