  • Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Andy Samberg Sing About '3-Way' Love

    Posted May 22nd 2011 at 09:14 AM by Christine Fenno

    Justin Timberlake gave a strong performance hosting the 'Saturday Night Live' season finale this weekend, especially when he reunited with Andy Samberg for a new spoof music video. Featuring cameos by Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson (from the 2009 Timberlake-Samberg duet 'Motherlover'), the new track is the best buddies' funky-fresh ode to the joys of getting freaky in a ménage...

  • 'Ambiguously Gay Duo' Returns to 'SNL' With a Live-Action Twist

    Posted May 15th 2011 at 10:33 AM by Christine Fenno

    This weekend's episode of 'Saturday Night Live' saw the return of that animated favorite, Robert Smigel's 'Ambiguously Gay Duo.' But for the first time, Ace and Gary morph from (always rather unambiguous) cartoon superstuds to real live-action heroes! Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon suit up as the crimefighters, looking both ludicrous and hot. But mostly ludicrous -- for instance, who knew male...

  • 'SNL' Host Elton John Mocks Bono's 'Spider-Man' Musical

    Posted Apr 3rd 2011 at 11:36 AM by Christine Fenno

    Sir Elton John was joined by Tom Hanks (playing Michael Caine) for a goofy 'Saturday Night Live' sketch called 'Knights of the Realm,' featuring a short list of British celebs who have been knighted. The conclave gathers to brainstorm a solution to the U.K.'s newest, greatest threat: a dragon attack. Andy Samberg, as Bono, donned giant shades and waxed on about artistry, until he was rudely cut...

  • Elton John Goofs Around in 'SNL' Promo

    Posted Mar 30th 2011 at 11:30 AM by Zach Dionne

    Elton John is set to pull off a double play this weekend, hosting and performing as musical guest on 'Saturday Night Live.' Sir Elton is the first guest in the 36th season to perform this feat. Although the episode promo with Jason Sudeikis [via Vulture] is shorter than the usual midweek clips hyping the upcoming show, there's some silliness going on and a goofy tribute to English comedy staple...

  • Zach Galifianakis Uses 'SNL' to Hire an Assistant

    Posted Mar 13th 2011 at 08:44 AM by Christine Fenno

    In his return as 'Saturday Night Live' guest host this weekend, 'Hangover: Part II' star Zach Galifianakis was uniquely versatile, his understated deadpan humor somehow elevating almost every sketch he was in. He took on characters such as a lumberjack, an earnest 'View' fan, and Hannibal Lechter; he even donned a Little Orphan Annie dress and sang. Saving one of the biggest laughs for last,...

  • 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...

  • Anne Hathaway Impersonates Katie Holmes on 'SNL'

    Posted Nov 21st 2010 at 04:43 PM by Christine Fenno

    Know what's pretty cool? A new 'Miley Cyrus Show' sketch, starring cast newcomer Vanessa Bayer as the Disney darling, stole the show again (check out the first clip if you missed it) on 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend. This time, the faux talk show features an interview segment with sleekly styled Katie Holmes, impersonated to a T with an intense-yet-vapid breathlessness by 'SNL' host Anne...

  • Pop-Ed: Who's In and Who's Out at 'Saturday Night Live'?

    Posted Sep 2nd 2010 at 04:30 PM by Mike Ryan

    The past week saw some major shakeups at 'Saturday Night Live.' Will Forte, a cast member since 2002, chose to leave. Taran Killam, Paul Brittain and Venessa Bayer (and maybe Jay Pharoah) are in as -- we assume -- featured players. Yes, it's entirely possible that there are no more changes before the 36th season premiere. But 'SNL' history will tell you that's not likely. 'SNL' certainly...

  • The Betty White Effect: Fans Launch 'SNL' Campaign for Carol Burnett

    Posted May 11th 2010 at 06:30 PM by John Mitchell

    During her smashing 'Saturday Night Live' monologue, living legend Betty White gave credit where credit was due, thanking (with the odd back-handed joke) the massive Facebook campaign that helped successfully land her on stage at Studio 8H at 30 Rockefeller Center. "Now, I'm here tonight because you wanted me to be," White said sincerely. "I just want to say I feel so loved. Thank you." The...
