Jon Hamm showed up as the emergency host, which only made me really wish that Jon Hamm was actually hosting. Also, explain to me again why Jon Hamm didn't host this week?
I've been a fan of Saturday Night Live for as long as I can remember. There's something about a fresh host and strong cast members that keeps me comin...
There really were not a lot of opportunities for quality airtime during Maya Rudolph's reign as SNL host. (A show, I should add, that I ranked as the third best of the season.)
So, the talk this week centered on the question of "will she or won't she" in relation to Maya Rudolph's Whitney Houston impression -- and thankfull...
I usually hate it when a parody impression is done right in front of the person being parodied. Both Abby Elliott and Andy Samberg somehow pulled off this stunt on Saturday night without it being excruciating.
Zooey Deschanel's efforts as the host of were quite great. But when a news story as big as Whitney Houston's death breaks mere hours before the live show, it puts "SNL" in the weird position of being a "topical" live show, but not really.
Has the era of comedy royalty and sublime humor now reached its end? With a cast that can't hold a candle to the lords and ladies of laughter that once ruled the television airwaves, Saturday Night Live just may be seeing its demise.
I get the sense that Jason Sudeikis is just in his own little world on the show these days. Like in a, "Hey, Jason, after Romney, you've got nothing until 'Bongo's Clown Room.' Do you want to be in any other sketches?" "Nah, I'm good," kind of way.
Here's a great, easy game you can play when bored: Think of the most absurd pairings of Saturday Night Live host and musical guest possible. Everyone ...
"SNL" decided to really focus on Tatum's beefcake status. Put it this way: I saw Channing Tatum with his shirt off not one, not two, but three times. We get it: Channing Tatum is a good-looking guy.
It all started with Lana Del Ray. When I drive back and forth into New York City for work, I often listen to XMU/Sirius U Satellite Radio, which plays...
Anyway, I'm sick of it. I think most of the country is sick of it. The Kardashians don't have talent. Just a PR spin that never seems to end.
With his offensively named hunting ranch, drunken speeches and inability to remember all three of the government agencies he would shut down, there was plenty to make fun of in 2012's "Oops" candidate.
Wiig was everywhere this week, so, no surprises here! That's not to say that I enjoyed everything she did this week, but, yes, her presence was pretty undeniable.
Last week, I wrote a piece about Taran Killam being the future of "SNL." So of course in the Charles Barkley-hosted episode, which featured 13 segments, Killam was barely seen.
