After watching Lena Dunham take the reins on 'SNL', it was easy to see that she fit right in with the cast. In this just released web exclusive, we ge...

Aww, 'SNL' Made Seth Meyers A Sweet Goodbye Video

Sure, Seth Meyers is only moving down the hall from his old office at "Saturday Night Live," but not being part of the team putting the show together ...

How Was Jonah Hill On 'SNL' Last Nght?

HuffingtonPost.com | Mike Ryan | Posted 01.26.2014 | TV

Jonah Hill has quietly become a good “SNL” host. His name doesn’t get mentioned in the same sentence as Timberlake or Jon Hamm (who somehow hasn...

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

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.

Miley Cyrus Confronts Her Old Self On 'SNL'

The Huffington Post | Ross Luippold | Posted 10.06.2013 | Comedy

'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.

WATCH: 'Fox & Friends' Welcomes Ted Nugent On 'SNL'

The Huffington Post | Ross Luippold | Posted 02.18.2013 | Comedy

"Fox & Friends" returned to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, this time to react to President Obama's State of the Union address. And of course, the...

'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.

"Saturday Night Live" brought back "The Miley Cyrus Show" on this week's episode, and in the words of Miley, we guess that's pretty cool... it's prett...

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

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.27.2013 | TV
Mike Ryan

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.

Who Won Big On 'SNL' This Week?

Mike Ryan | Posted 12.17.2012 | TV
Mike Ryan

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.

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.

Who Won Big On 'SNL' This Week?

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 ...

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.

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 ...

'SNL' Scorecard: Louis C.K. Was, For Better Or Worse, Louis C.K.

Mike Ryan | Posted 11.04.2012 | TV
Mike Ryan

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.
