When Conan O'Brien was host of Saturday Night Live on March 10, 2001, his monologue featured a visit from the SNL studio to the studio for Late Night With Conan O'Brien, where Conan discovers Weinberg engaged in sexual intercourse with a woman on his desk (played by Max's real-life wife, Becky). In the past several years, especially since the departure of Late Night co-host Andy Richter, Max's role in the show began to decrease; however, lately, it seems his appearances have increased substantially, especially during the monologue. He is also featured in several sketches, many of which portray him as a pervert. Once Springsteen reunited the E Street Band in 1999, Weinberg began taking leaves of absence from the show in order to go out on tour.
