When the hottest sketch comic on the planet pays a visit to the most venerable sketch-comedy show in the world, expectations are going to be inevitably (and perhaps unrealistically) high. That doesn’t mean, however, we couldn’t hold out hope that host Amy Schumer would totally crush it in her Saturday Night Live hosting debut.
RelatedTVLine’s Performer of the Week: Cameron Monaghan
The bad news? The latest “Weekend Update” proved as tepid as a centimeter’s worth of coffee left in your cup at lunchtime. The good news? Schumer didn’t have anything to do with it! And »
And we’re back for episode two! This week’s host is Amy Schumer, a solid choice that should lead to an interesting show. Inside Amy Schumer just beat SNL for the “Outstanding Variety Sketch Series” Emmy, indicating that perhaps Comedy Central’s more cinematic sketch shows are beginning to take over a spot in American comedy long held primarily by SNL. It’ll be interesting to see how Schumer’s typically more polished comedy mixes with the loveably spotty “let’s put on a show” variety at Saturday Night Live. I’m hoping for the best on this one; Schumer is an incredibly game performer, and it’s always nice to have a host that can bring sketch ideas to the table in addition to performing. Let’s dig in!

The model will appear when filming begins at London Fashion Week next month.
Saunders told The Mirror: "I can confirm that Kate does have a part in the forthcoming movie.
"It's not yet decided whether she'll have a speaking part or not, but she'll definitely be in it.
"She's a big fan of the show and we're pals, so – aside from the fact she's the definitive model - it was a no-brainer."
"I'm still tweaking the script. I've only just got the greenlight. »
"Celebrity Deathmatch," MTV's claymation death-brawl with the stars, is returning with new episodes to MTV2! I support this. Along with "Daria," it was one of the network's chief forums for late '90s sarcastic commentary. I also remember hearing that the real members of Hanson wept upon watching their clay fight with the Spice Girls, and that is very funny. Let's pick our favorite claymation fight from the original series. While the "Michael Jackson vs. Madonna" showdown is legend, I remember at the time feeling like the duel between Jewel and Alanis Morissette was important. Maybe the "Alaska vs. Canada" element felt trenchant at the time? I don't know. I actually remember rooting for Jewel, which is such a funny childhood mistake. Clearly Alanis is the superior lyricist and performer. Get More: MTV Shows »

If you wanna be my Dance Mom, you gotta get with(out) your friends… make it last forever, cause this show never ends. So given that … zigazig ahhhh, Dance Moms nation. It’s time for the Spice Girls/Poison Apples version of the Dance Moms recap. Which starts out innocuously enough as everyone gathers in the Dancers Den to talk about how weird it is to be without Maddie again (it’s not that weird). This time, Maddie’s with Sia in New York doing SNL. And Melissa is lamenting about how she really should be in New York with her daughter, but she has to … Continue reading →

We're into our third week of blind auditions now and when the coaches aren't giggling about Rita Ora making a fart sound on her chair or grousing about the Welsh Mafia which is apparently led by Sir Tom Jones, they're bashing their buttons pretty heavily indeed to add members to their teams.
In fact, six acts - Daniel Duke, Emmanuel Nwamadi, Esmée Denters, Joe Woolford, Liss Jones and Stephanie Webber - made it through to the battles, while we sadly had to say goodbye to five hopefuls. But who had the best audition? Here we go with our attempt to rank again...
1. Emmanuel Nwamadi
Song: 'The Sweetest Taboo' - Sade
Team: Team Ricky
Alright, we'll admit it - the minute Emmanuel said he was inspired by the Spice Girls, we were on his side (even if his choice of favourite song was frankly bizarre - 'Mama'? Really?) But we had »
We're already into our third week of blind auditions! Yes, 11 more plucky hopefuls will take to the stage this weekend in an attempt to convince those coaches to turn around and add them to their teams.
If you can't quite wait until Saturday and want to know who's going to be singing their hearts out - and, in fact, what they'll be singing - then you're in luck, because we have the information and pictures right here for you...
1. Stephanie Webber - 25, Wales
Song: 'Mama's Broken Heart' - Miranda Lambert
What you need to know: Don't mess with Stephanie - she's a black belt in Korean kick-boxing. (For a day job, she works as a cleaner in a Cardiff gym.)
2. Josh McDonough - 19, Epsom
Song: 'Waves' - Mr Probz
What you need to know: Josh was a competitive swimmer but now teaches the sport to kids. Oh, and his granddad »
