Written, shot and edited fresh each week, sometimes just before the live broadcast, the "SNL Digital Shorts" have captured the attention of "SNL" viewers, the press and are some of the most-watched videos on the internet. This special will include the Emmy winning holiday short with Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake -- "D*** in a Box"
