Does anybody know the name of the shouty guy with a mustache who was on all those home shopping channels in the 1990s, the one who is parodied in this Saturday Night Live sketch?

Do you mean Ron Popeil, of Ronco Inc.?

You may also be thinking of Billy Mays, but he was found more on infomercials rather than HSN.

(Edit: Apparently Billy Mays *did* get his start on HSN. That'll learn me to post wikipedia links without actually looking at them.)

Best answer: It's a parody of Don West of Shop at Home Network.

Example of him getting ridiculously excited about something stupid. My fav: the Joe Montana Trilogy Cards. Only 250 IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

Response by poster: Yup, it looks like it's Don West.
