SNL Pokes Fun at Beyoncé and Jay Z's Lemonade Drama During Black Jeopardy

15 May 2016 11:54 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Drake brought his golden sense of humor when he hosted Saturday Night Live this week. In between rapping about his issues with the SNL cast and impersonating Rihanna, the rapper participated in a fun round of Black Jeopardy with Amir (Jay Pharoah), Keeley (Sasheer Zamata), and host Darnell Hayes (Kenan Thompson). While the game poked fun at Drake's Canadian background, things took a hilarious turn when the show dared to poke fun at Beyoncé and Jay Z's recent Lemonade drama. Prepare to laugh and watch the clip above now. »

Saturday Night Live Review: Brie Larson Hosts

8 May 2016 3:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight’s host is Brie Larson: indie film actress, recent Oscar winner, and former singer of pop punk album Finally Out of P.E, whose single She Said featured pretty heavily on the rotation of my first ever square iPod nano. Larson brought a solid enthusiasm to an episode that featured a heavier amount of good sketches than bad, proving that maybe long hiatuses are good for this show, since their cast and crew, if legend is to be believed, subsist on very little sleep and very much junk food. Glad those guys got some rest, and brought some laughs to this enjoyable Mother’s Day episode.   Cold Open: Church Chat: Dana Carvey’s Church Chat Lady returns to interview Ted Cruz and Donald Trump with her signature judgy passive aggression. The Church Chat Lady isn’t a person I would typically consider a voice of reason, but election »

Twitter Debate Rages on After Larry Wilmore Drops the N-Word to President Obama at Whcd

2 May 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Larry Wilmore had a mic-drop moment of his own when he said the N-word to President Obama the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night. The host of Comedy Central's The Nightly Show has received mixed reviews for his closing cry - "Yo Barry, you did it my n---a" - with Rev. Al Sharpton calling Wilmore's use of the word "at best in poor taste" and Saturday Night Live's Sasheer Zamata tweeting, "This is the blackest correspondents dinner ever and I Love it." Two days later, the Twitterverse is still buzzing about the jaw-dropping moment. Here's how some on social »

Saturday Night Live Review: Ariana Grande Hosts

13 March 2016 5:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ariana Grande is shiny haired and beautiful and also fully believes in ghosts and one time licked a donut in a display case, and honestly, I’m kind of a fan of her whole weird vibe. Additionally, I enjoy how she has a tiny speaking voice and a huge singing voice, like Sister Mary Robert from Sister Act. And although tonight’s sketches were a little hit or miss, Ariana handled her hosting/musical guest double duty fairly well. Let’s dig in!   Cold Open: CNN reporter Jake Tapper cuts between coverage of Donald Trump’s rally with Ben Carson and an interview with Bernie Sanders. Listen, I was going to miss Jay Pharaoh’s Dr. Ben Carson impersonation as much as the next SNL reviewer, but I would have rather never seen him again than watch another former Republican candidate throw his support behind this orange monster who won’t go away. »

Larry David Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

6 February 2016 11:04 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Larry David refused to promise a great episode of Saturday Night Live during this week’s opening monologue, instead suggesting the end product would be “so-so.”

RelatedSNL: Shouldn’t the Current Cast Play Sanders, Trump and Palin? Plus: Where’s Jay Pharoah’s Obama?

Nevertheless, it was more than a case of lowered expectations that led to the Curb Your Enthusiasm star presiding over one of the funniest, sharpest-eyed episodes in recent memory.

Sure, there were a couple of low points — that Learning Annex songwriters’ workshop was a kernel of an idea gone fetid — but when Bernie Sanders »

SNL: Shouldn't the Current Cast Play Sanders, Trump and Palin? Plus: Where's Jay Pharoah's Obama?

4 February 2016 8:01 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

With Larry David set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend, viewers are all but guaranteed to see a sketch — maybe even two or three of ’em — featuring his beloved take on Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

While that thought probably makes you happier than Rosie O’Donnell fantasizing about a Donald Trump concession speech, allow me for a moment to sound as crusty and cantankerous as David’s version of the Vermont senator.

Saturday Night Live Recap: Ronda Rousey Hosts

24 January 2016 4:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our host for tonight is Ronda Rousey, who has won a lot of medals and championships for being Very, Very Strong. Like, seriously. She could knock you out in a second. It is a little terrifying, but also inspiring in a “You go, girl” kind of way. And now she’s got a burgeoning acting career, with roles in The Expendables 3, Furious 7, and Entourage 1 and God Willing Only. She will make her comedy debut in the upcoming Do Nothing Bitches, based on a script by Sisters writer Paula Pell in which Rousey plays a bootcamp instructor putting suburban housewives, one of which is played by Tina Fey, in their place. Tonight seemed to be Rousey’s chance to prove her comedy chops, but she honestly didn’t get much of a chance-- she only truly starred in one sketch, and made minimal to no appearances in all of the others. »

Ronda Rousey Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

23 January 2016 11:01 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Wait, remind me again, who hosted Saturday Night Live this week?

No, I’m not trying to say that Ronda Rousey isn’t necessarily famous or funny enough to be the emcee of NBC’s sketch-comedy staple, but merely pointing out that with a few fleeting exceptions, the mixed martial-arts champ was as significant to the success or failure of the episode’s sketches as a beach umbrella in the middle of a blizzard.

Who knows? Maybe Rousey turned out to be less adept with a punchline than SNL boss Lorne Michaels had originally anticipated. »

Should Arrow's Felicity Be Angry? How Did Hawkman Forget? Can Emmys Get Young? Nancy Drew Too Old? More Qs!

22 January 2016 11:03 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Good Wife, New Girl, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow!

1 | Did SNL forget Sasheer Zamata is a full-time cast member? And as fun as the Undercover Boss: Kylo Ren send-up was, shouldn’t it have been 20 percent more clever? (Surely Stormtroopers grumble in the galley about pulling duty on an assuredly doomed planet/weapon.)
