  • Miley Cyrus Silences Critics With Excellent 'Saturday Night Live' Hosting Gig

    Posted Mar 7th 2011 at 04:45 PM by John Mitchell

    Fans of 'Saturday Night Live' got a special treat this weekend when Miley Cyrus hit the stage at 30 Rock to deliver one of the best episodes in recent memory. You read that right, folks! The reviews (and numbers) are in, and Cyrus is a hit. Not only did the teen starlet prove she has a sense of humor about herself, mocking her now-infamous salvia-bong debacle, she also strapped on a wig to play...

  • Miley Cyrus Plays Justin Bieber, Fergie on 'SNL'

    Posted Mar 6th 2011 at 09:18 AM by Christine Fenno

    It had to happen. All season, cast newcomer Vanessa Bayer has been parodying Miley Cyrus in recurring 'Saturday Night Live' sketches. And this weekend, with Cyrus trying her hand at hosting 'SNL,' the 18-year-old got to share a 'Miley Cyrus Show' scene with Bayer -- coming face to face with the shrill, pleased-with-herself caricature the comedienne has perfected since the spoof's debut last fall....

  • 'SNL' Skewers Charlie Sheen With 'Duh! Winning!'

    Posted Mar 6th 2011 at 08:25 AM by Christine Fenno

    Making an ass of yourself on camera isn't just a specialty of Charlie Sheen's, although after his epic run of motormouth rants and erratic interviews, he's definitely captain of the team these days. Maybe that's why Sheen, as impersonated by Bill Heder in the opening of this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live,' is the ideal host for a new talk show giving airtime to "winners" like himself. His...

  • Russell Brand Brings His Stand-up to 'SNL'

    Posted Feb 13th 2011 at 11:33 AM by Christine Fenno

    Launching into his monologue, host Russell Brand kicked off 'Saturday Night Live' in his cheeky-manic comfort zone, with an extended stand-up routine about his fame, his foppishly tight pants, his fidelity to the Queen (and the "fake King" up for an Oscar award this month, Colin Firth) and his life as a newlywed. Anyone expecting to hear major dish about Katy Perry was disappointed. After all,...

  • Chris Brown All Smiles After 'SNL' Comeback Performances

    Posted Feb 13th 2011 at 08:05 AM by Christine Fenno

    Chris Brown has learned a lot of lessons in his young life, including how to generate controversy on Grammys weekend. After his turn as musical guest on this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live,' it's worth asking: Has the 21-year-old singer also learned that you can pound on your girlfriend's face so hard she calls 911 for rescue, and then -- just two years later -- be rewarded with a major TV spot...

  • Pretty Cool: Miley Cyrus to Host 'SNL' in March

    Posted Feb 11th 2011 at 10:50 AM by Sarah Crow

    Miley Cyrus has already proven she's a major TV draw with recently wrapped hit 'Hannah Montana,' and now the 18-year-old is returning to the small screen as the host of 'Saturday Night Live.' PEOPLE reports that Cyrus will host the late-night variety show, which often parodies her in sketches, on March 5. Despite Cyrus' hit music career, she will not serve as the musical guest on the episode...

  • Party On: 'Wayne's World' Returns to 'SNL'

    Posted Feb 6th 2011 at 10:51 AM by Christine Fenno

    Hosting 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend, Dana Carvey embraced old-school comedy. And as the episode kicked off, viewers (of a certain age!) shared a powerful time-travel moment seeing that old favorite, 'Wayne's World,' reunite Carvey and Mike Myers. The topic up for discussion/ridicule: the 2011 Oscar nominees. And the boys seemed to pick up right where they left off. (A nerd says what?) ...

  • Dana Carvey's Church Lady Is Hot for Justin Bieber

    Posted Feb 6th 2011 at 08:18 AM by Christine Fenno

    Pop culture past and present collided on 'Saturday Night Live' last night, when host Dana Carvey ('86-'93 alum, as he and Jon Lovitz reminded us in the monologue) revived his most famous 'SNL' character, the hilarious heathen-hater Church Lady. Cast members impersonated Church Lady's first guests (those "promenading prostitutes," the Kardashians, followed by "Jersey Whore" Snooki). But...

  • On 'SNL,' Nicki Minaj Is Crazy About 'The Creep'

    Posted Jan 30th 2011 at 02:33 PM by Christine Fenno

    What are the odds that three awkward dweebs with nerdy suits, greasy hygiene, and perverse social skills could get you out on the dance floor? With the right featured guest rapping on their hot new track, those odds actually go way up. As the musical artist dropping by 'Saturday Night Live' this week, Nicki Minaj worked overtime on the episode, joining the creeps of 'The Creep' -- a.k.a. The...

  • Mark Zuckerberg Faces Jesse Eisenberg on 'SNL'

    Posted Jan 30th 2011 at 08:37 AM by Christine Fenno

    Last night's 'Saturday Night Live' was hardly what you'd call a Mark Zuckerberg Production, but it did feature a spirited cameo from the Facebook co-founder. As predicted, Zuckerberg wasn't about to let Jesse Eisenberg -- newly Oscar-nominated for playing the young lawsuit magnet in 'The Social Network' -- hog the 'SNL' spotlight. During the 27-year-old actor's stammering monologue about his...
