18 August 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Eduardo Castillo had no idea the sheet cake he made on Thursday morning would make its way onto national television.

The baker at Le Delice Pastry Shop, where a Saturday Night Live producer picked up the dessert for Tina Fey’s return to Weekend Update, says he received a rush order for a cake with an American flag on top but didn’t question why.

“We didn’t know,” he tells People. “Someone just came in to place an order and we tried to help them, but we didn’t know who it was or who’s going to be there. »

The Best Internet Reactions to Tina Fey’s ‘Sheet-Caking’ Movement

18 August 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On Thursday night’s Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, Tina Fey preached between mouthfuls of cake about the cathartic powers of “sheet-caking” as a “grass-roots movement.”

She closed out the SNL summer edition as herself, a University of Virginia alum, in reaction to the violent weekend happenings in Charlottesville—with the help of frosting.

With more far-right rallies planned in the near future, the comedian provided some some comedic relief with advice on how to handle white supremacist mobs going forward. To take her own advice, she nearly finished off an entire sheet cake by herself, preaching between bites. Obviously, »

Jon Stewart Takes Aim at Donald Trump and White Supremacists During Surprise Stand-Up Appearance With Dave Chappelle

18 August 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jon Stewart picked a hell of a time to end his tenure as host of “The Daily Show.” Several others have stepped up to fill the void left by his absence — that two of them, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee, first came to attention on his show is no coincidence — but no one does it quite like Stewart did.

He reminded everyone in attendance at Dave Chappelle’s show at Radio City Music Hall of that just last night, chiming in on Charlottesville and Donald Trump.

Like just about everyone besides Trump himself, Stewart was aghast at the notion that “many sides” were to blame for last weekend’s violence. “To the presence of two sides? Motherfucker? There are two sides? Motherfucker? Two sides? Two sides!” he exclaimed. “And I believe they are called the Allied powers and the Axis powers. »

TV Ratings: ‘SNL: Weekend Update’ Stays Solid With Surprise Cameos

18 August 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The second installment of “SNL: Weekend Update” is currently up significantly in both key ratings measures in its second week, according to Nielsen overnight data,

However, Thursday night’s numbers will likely be adjusted down later today due to local preemptions for NFL preseason football.

Airing at 9 p.m., the expanded version of the popular segment is currently averaging a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.8 million total viewers. That is up approximately 25% in the key demo and 24% in total viewers, pending adjustments. The episode featured cameos by former “SNL” cast members Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon, and Seth Meyers.

Earlier on NBC, “The Wall” (1.2, 5.8 million) was also up significantly in both measures. A new episode of “The Night Shift” (0.8, 4 million) is currently matching its season high in the key demo.

On CBS, “Big Brother” (2.0, 6.6 million) was the top-rated and most-watched show of the night. “Zoo” (0.6, 2.8 million) was up in total viewers at 10.

Tina Fey Angrily Eats Cake on ‘Weekend Update’ in Response to Trump’s White Supremacy

18 August 2017 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Weekend Update has returned for the summer because I guess NBC thought audiences couldn’t get enough of Colin Jost and Michael Che making smug, obvious jokes. But one of the upsides of Weekend Update coming back early is that they have guest stars do bits, and after the horrific events in Charlottesville, Viriginia this past weekend, Tina Fey, a Uva alum, stopped by to share her thoughts. But because we think comedians should also be activists, Fey angrily eating cake while denouncing Trump’s white supremacy and the Nazis who congregated in Charlottesville has been seen as “wrong” because … »

Watch Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers Play Founding Fathers on 'SNL'

18 August 2017 6:31 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The same day President Trump compared Confederate General Robert E. Lee to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson on Twitter, SNL alumni Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers appeared in character as the two founding fathers to clear their names on Weekend Update: Summer Edition.

Following the weekend's events in Charlottesville, Virginia, where protests against the removal of a Robert E.

Tina Fey Blasts Trump, Neo-Nazis and Paul Ryan While Eating Cake (Video)

18 August 2017 6:13 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tina Fey returned to the “Saturday Night Live” set for “Weekend Update Summer Edition” on Thursday, explaining that eating cake is more productive than trying to counter-protest white supremacy. Fey, who graduated University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said it broke her heart to see “evil forces” descend on her former campus last weekend. Fey “felt sick” after hearing President Trump’s remarks, in which he infamously said people on “many sides” were to blame. “I’ve seen ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,'” she said. “And I wasn’t confused by it… Nazis are always bad.” Also Read: Inside ' »
