"This is the best night of my life," Amy Schumer addressed the exuberant crowd at Alice Tully Hall on Tuesday for the world premiere of her romantic comedy, Trainwreck. Director Judd Apatow stood nearby feeding the comedienne lines, reminding her to thank Universal and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, hosts of the spectacular launch, including the lavish after party at the refurbished Tavern on the Green.

Kerry Washington Helps 'SNL' Make A Point, But Will It Matter?

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.23.2014 | TV
Mike Ryan

Whelp, it's official ... this is officially one of the most troublesome seasons of "SNL" in recent history, even though it has nothing to do with the quality of the show. (Not that the quality has been great, but it's been OK considering all of the cast changes.)

Did Bruce Willis Save The Day While Hosting 'SNL'?

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.23.2014 | TV
Mike Ryan

Bruce Willis had not hosted "SNL" since September 30, 1989. On that evening there was a "Thirtysomething" sketch and the fourth ever appearance of "Wayne's World." It's nice that Bruce Willis was promoting absolutely nothing, so in my own little fantasy world, I picture him waking up one morning and thinking "You know, I haven't hosted "SNL" in 24 years, I better get on that."

Miley Cyrus' 'SNL' Was All About Miley Cyrus

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.23.2014 | TV
Mike Ryan

The most successful hosts of late -- Justin Timberlake, Emma Stone, Christoph Waltz -- never try to make the show about them. They try to integrate themselves into the cast, basically becoming a cast member. The Miley Cyrus installment was mostly about Miley Cyrus. And, it's funny, in the few sketches that she wasn't playing herself or an exaggerated version of herself, she was good. Unfortunately, there just wasn't a lot of that.

'SNL' Scorecard: Kevin Hart Did What He Could

Mike Ryan | Posted 03.03.2013 | TV
Mike Ryan

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.

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

Mike Ryan | Posted 02.10.2013 | TV
Mike Ryan

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.
