‘Saturday Night Live’ Ratings Rise In All-Live Episode Hosted By Jimmy Fallon

16 April 2017 10:48 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Saturday Night Live‘s first episode to air live on both coasts averaged 7.880 million viewers and a 2.27 rating in adults 18-49 for the live broadcasts in all time zones and the encore 11:30 Pm telecast on the West Coast in live plus same day fast nationals from Nielsen Media Research.

Saturday Night Live review – Jimmy Fallon's monologue misses mark

16 April 2017 6:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

An elaborate song-and-dance number had no place in the cold open, but the Tonight Show host redeemed himself with a couple strong skits later in the show

Jimmy Fallon made his name on Saturday Night Live in the early 2000s, and for years was one of the show’s most reliably great hosts. He can dance, he can sing, he can do impressions – what a catch! Unfortunately, it’s his skill in these areas that apparently makes him unwilling to do what SNL are hosts are actually meant to do – tell jokes in sketches.

Jimmy Fallon on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

16 April 2017 6:36 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Fallon took a lot of heat for rubbing now President Donald Trump's hair on The Tonight Show last summer, and neither he nor the program have truly recovered since. With Stephen Colbert and ex-head Saturday Night Live writer Seth Meyers turning increasingly political pre- and post-election, Fallon has kept his show as non-topical as possible. That's his preference and temperament, but it's also kept him increasingly out-of-touch. Yes, people want to be entertained when they tune into late-night television, but escapism is almost impossible at this point in time. »

Breaking on Saturday Night Live

15 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Despite their best efforts, the professionals at Saturday Night Live find themselves laughing right along with us every now and then. It’s such a storied tradition that Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler even sang a song about breaking during the show’s 40th anniversary special.

Although the performers are supposed to avoid it at all costs, getting the giggles during sketches has led to some of the funniest moments in SNL history, and since notorious mid-sketch laugher Jimmy Fallon is returning to host this week, we’re looking back at some of those classic crack-ups.

Tig Notaro on Louis Ck ‘SNL’ Controversy: ‘I Just Want to Stake My Claim’

15 April 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Earlier this week, fans pointed out similarities between a recent “Saturday Night Live” sketch starring Louis CK as a lonely guy who hires a clown and comedian Tig Notaro’s 2015 short film “Clown Service” about … a depressed and lonely woman who hires a clown to cheer her up.

While CK has yet to respond, Notaro released a statement saying she couldn’t ignore the “cacophony of voices reaching out personally and publicly about the potential plagiarizing of my film.” (A representative for “Saturday Night Live” declined to comment.)

Before she headed south to start production on the second season of her Amazon series “One Mississippi” (which counts CK as an executive producer), Notaro opened up to Variety about the controversy and why the film is so important to her.

Why did you decide to speak out about “Clown Service” and the “SNL” controversy?

Jay Pharoah Opens Up About SNL Exit: 'You Go Where You're Appreciated'

14 April 2017 6:41 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Jay Pharoah has kept quiet about Saturday Night Live since he and Taran Killam were both let go ahead of Season 42. Now, in a candid new interview with New York radio station Hot 97, the comedian is speaking out about his tenure on the late-night sketch comedy series.

“You go where you’re appreciated,” he says, reflecting on his 2016 exit, before suggesting that many of his former castmates would tell him that he was underutilized during his six seasons on the show. “They put people into boxes [on SNL],” which in his case meant relying on his impressions, such as Jay Z, »

Louis C.K. Under Fire for Plagiarism but His Skit was 100 Times Funnier

13 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Louis C.K. has been the subject of plagiarism rumors before but he’s never been the one accused of doing the plagiarizing.  Remember a couple years back when it was Dane Cook accused of stealing Louis C.K. material?   Now it’s C.K.’s turn to face the fire.  If any of you saw his most recent hosting gig on SNL you might remember a skit called “Birthday Clown.”  In it Louis C.K. plays this lonely guy who hires a clown for his birthday.  Only C.K. is an adult, is alone, and has no one else in the house.  Bobby Moynihan, who plays the

Tig Notaro Says Louis Ck’s ‘SNL’ Clown Skit Copycatted Hers: ‘Extremely Disappointing’ (Video)

13 April 2017 7:03 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tig Notaro is speaking out about “Saturday Night Live” and Louis C.K. “potentially plagiarizing” her short film “Clown Service,” calling their similarities “extremely disappointing.” Ck and the NBC sketch comedy staple recently teamed up on pre-taped skit “Birthday Clown,” which strikes a strong resemblance in premise to Notaro’s earlier and lengthier project. In both, a depressed, middle-aged(-ish) and apparently single person calls a clown service to their home for a one-on-one cheer-up session. C.K.’s request is for a personal birthday party, while Notaro’s is to help her get over a breakup. A certain amount of hilarity ensues in his, »

Tig Notaro Calls Out Louis C.K.’s ‘SNL’ Clown Skit For Plagiarism: “I Find It Extremely Disappointing”

12 April 2017 4:46 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Tig Notaro is calling out Louis C.K.’s Saturday Night Live “Birthday Clown” short, saying that it resembles her short film Clown Service and that a writer/director who “was fully aware” of her project worked on C.K.’s piece for the show. In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, the One Mississippi co-creator states that she finds the SNL short “extremely disappointing.” Notaro also adds that she has “not communicated in any way for nearly a year and a half” with C.K. or… »

Tig Notaro Responds to Plagiarism Accusations Against Louis C.K. ‘SNL’ Short

12 April 2017 3:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tig Notaro has responded to claims that Louis C.K.’s “Saturday Night Live” skit “Birthday Clown” bears too strong of a resemblance to her 2015 short film “Clown Service.”

In a statement released to Entertainment Weekly, Notaro said she finds the situation “extremely disappointing.” She also wrote that she had no communication with C.K. for almost a year and a half prior to the release of the skit, and that no one asked her permission to use any material from the film.

She also adds that, to her knowledge, one of the writer/directors who worked on C.K.’s “SNL” skit had definitive knowledge of her film during its production.

The similarity between the two pieces is primarily in set-up, as both feature depressed people, played by Notaro and C.K., who invite clowns into their home to perform solely for them. In C.K.’s version, the skit takes a dark turn at the end »

One of the funnier sketches from this week’s edition of “Saturday Night Live” came when host Louis C.K. played a guy who hires a clown — played by Bobby Moynahan — who slowly comes to realize that there are no children at the birthday party at which he’s performing, just one middle-aged dude.

Tig Notaro Blasts Louis C.K. 'SNL' Clown Sketch as "Extremely Disappointing"

Tig Notaro is breaking her silence about Louis C.K.'s recent Saturday Night Live appearance.

The Louie star raised eyebrows when he appeared in a sketch that many believed strongly resembled Notaro's short film Clown Service.

"It has been impossible for me to ignore the cacophony of voices reaching out personally and publicly about the potential plagiarizing of my film Clown Service (a film that I screened at Largo in Los Angeles for over a year and it premiered at Vulture's Comedy Festival in NYC as well as numerous film festivals around the country and I am currently screening on »

This 13 Reasons Why Actor Has Already Starred Alongside Some of Hollywood's Biggest Names

11 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There is always a little anxiety when one of your favorite books gets turned into a TV series, but 13 Reasons Why has surpassed our expectations. Even though there are quite a few tweaks from the original, we couldn't have picked a better cast to play the memorable characters. While we can't get enough of the show's stars Dylan Minnette and Katherine Langford, we are curious to know more about the rest of the ensemble's previous acting experience. Even though some of the actors are well-seasoned professionals, for others, this is their big break. While Devin Druid, who plays Tyler, has a pretty short résumé, at 19-years-old he's already worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. In 2016, he starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe in Imperium, and later that year he had a guest spot on Netflix's House of Cards. While he's gaining a lot of traction for his 13 Reasons Why character, »
