Just know that I am not writing this as someone who was a friend of Gilda Radner's. Or who was a writing partner. Or even as a father whose three children, to this very day, refer to their godmother as Aunt Gilda.
In the wake of the Connecting school shooting, "SNL" has to truly decide, right now, if it wants to help start the national discussion, or if it just wants to tell us which fake nightclubs tourists should seek out over the holiday season.
From the best political bits on late night to a few unintentionally hilarious moments from the politicians themselves, 2012 was a great year to laugh at politics in America.
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.
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.
Since the Madison chapter of Gilda's Club announced this week their plans to change the name of their organization by removing reference to late comedian and Saturday Night Live great Gilda Radner, after whom the non-profit was named, there's been an incredible amount of backlash.
The Turkey Day Top 10 features YouTube favorites like Ryan Higa, freddiew and Fred! But perhaps the most notable addition is Nicole Westbrook's breakout "It's Thanksgiving" viral video, which has only been on YouTube since November and already comes in at #2!
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.
The election is over, but fortunately for the nation's late night hosts, there was plenty of news to joke about this week. First and foremost, the David Petraeus affair scandal gave us the type of soap opera story we hadn't seen since Herman Cain sexually harassed his Godfather's Pizza employees.
We pride ourselves on knowing all kinds of Sapphic pop-culture facts. Each week we share some of the best tidbits on The Huffington Post in our series "Best Lesbian Week Ever." Here's who and what was on our raging gay radar 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.
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.
When we brush off a slurring newscaster, it's a little like having your great aunt pass out, face first, into Thanksgiving dinner while your grandmother says, "Well, look at that, she's just worked herself to the bone."
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 ...
Tuesday is Election Day and we are still alive, just not allowed to leave the house for a little while, all of us. Thankfully, there are Internet videos for that. So we've compiled this definitive list of the 20 best videos of the 2012 election cycle.
Louis C.K. has developed the reputation that he's only happy when he's in charge and on last night's show, at times, that seemed evident. When he was comfortable, he was electric. When he wasn't comfortable, he broke character.
