STEFON!

'SNL' Scorecard: Kevin Hart Did What He Could

Mike Ryan | Posted 03.03.2013 | TV

Kevin Hart came with a ton of energy (perhaps too much at times), but the material was mostly second rate. It certainly wasn't a terrible show, but it wasn't a good or particularly memorable show, either.

Ted Nugent Slams 'SNL' For Calling Him Crazy

The Huffington Post | Ross Luippold | Posted 02.19.2013 | Comedy

Ted Nugent took to Twitter on Monday to respond to a parody on "Saturday Night Live" in last weekend's episode, where the often incendiary conservativ...

'SNL' Scorecard: Justin Bieber's Show Was All About Justin Bieber

Mike Ryan | Posted 02.10.2013 | TV

The entire show was about Justin Bieber -- and "SNL" is at its worst when the show is about the host as opposed to the host integrating him or herself into the cast.

'SNL' Scorecard: Adam Levine Does Double Duty (And It's Subpar)

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.27.2013 | TV

Adam Levine certainly didn't phone it in -- like we've seen other "SNL" hosts do this season -- but, like many a musical guest-turned-host before him, this just really didn't work out.

The 10 Best 'SNL' Sketches Of 2012

Mike Ryan | Posted 02.27.2013 | TV
Mike Ryan

I was going to title this post "My Favorite Sketches From 2012," but I started thinking how I've gotten up early, every post-"SNL" Sunday morning, on my day off, to write "SNL" Scorecard (which, I will note, I haven't missed once since it started in 2010 - I'm strangely proud of that) and then gotten yelled at by half of you, each and every time, for my admittedly subjective ranking system. (It's fine! Keep doing that because that is the point.) Because of this, I thought, well, just maybe, I've earned a "Best Sketches" title for my trouble? I mean, no, it's not a true title. These are certainly not the best ten sketches of 2012 (going back to the last half of the 2011-2012 season), because they are only my favorite ten sketches. Regardless, I decided to keep the title of "best sketches" even though it's a lie. Here they are:

Who Won Big On 'SNL' This Week?

Mike Ryan | Posted 12.17.2012 | TV

Like any "SNL" that features cavalcade of guest stars, it becomes a tough week to get significant airtime -- and that's not even taking into account that there were only nine segments that involved the cast.

'SNL' Scorecard: Samuel L. Jackson Calls 'Bullshit' On Martin Short's Show

Mike Ryan | Posted 12.16.2012 | TV
Mike Ryan

"SNL" had the difficult task of airing one day after one of the worst mass shootings in the US history. It was never specifically mentioned, but it presided over the night after a haunting children's choir rendition of "Silent Night."

Who Won Big On 'SNL' This Week?

Mike Ryan | Posted 12.10.2012 | TV
Mike Ryan

With "SNL" coming off a break, and only one more show until a long break, this week's show felt stagnant. As we all place are wagers on if we'll see the return Ed Grimly in next week's Martin Short-Paul McCartney, here's this week's Relevancy Poll.

'SNL' Scorecard: Jamie Foxx Upstaged By Dermot Mulroney, Somehow

Mike Ryan | Posted 12.09.2012 | TV
Mike Ryan

It's hard to build momentum without a major news story or scandal this week, this felt like a show with no purpose and no momentum. This wasn't Foxx's fault, who, with a sketch comedy background, is certainly a talented enough host.

Yeah, the Jeremy Renner-hosted installment of "SNL" certainly wasn't the strongest effort of the season. And no cast member had a truly outstanding ...

'SNL' Scorecard: Renner Was Not Bourne To Host

Mike Ryan | Posted 11.18.2012 | TV

Unfortunately, this week's "SNL" was just off from the start. An almost shockingly boring cold open followed by Renner's monologue with technical glitches, set a tone that never fully recovered.

Who Won Big On 'SNL' This Week?

Jason Sudeikis said goodbye to his interpretation of Mitt Romney on Saturday night. He seems to have a renewed energy that he was missing the last two seasons. It's a shame that this will be his last.

'SNL' Scorecard: Anne Hathaway Channels Her Inner 'Les Miz'

Mike Ryan | Posted 11.11.2012 | TV
Mike Ryan

Anne Hathaway deserves to be mentioned in the pantheon of the other "current great 'SNL' hosts" like Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Justin Timberlake. But, the material this time around was not as consistently strong as her last two appearances.

Is Kate McKinnon The New Kristen Wiig?

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.05.2013 | TV
Mike Ryan

Only nine segments aired on the Louis C.K.-hosted "Saturday Night Live." What's even more remarkable is that a grand total of five sketches were killed after dress rehearsal. So it goes without saying (but I will anyway, for some reason) that airtime was at a premium this week. On to the sixth Relevancy Poll of the season we go ...
