6 hours ago

The 41st season opener of SNL gave plenty of air time to featured player Leslie Jones.

Crude, Rude “Message From Donald & Melania Trump” Launches Season 41 Of ‘Saturday Night Live’

7 hours ago

Donald Trump got the full-on SNL parody treatment in the 41st season opener, including the cold open featuring Taran Killam, in his debut as the mouthy mogul, and Cecily Strong as latest wife Melania. She blabbered mindlessly about his intelligence and love of women; he indicated his fondness for immigrants by pointing to her. Rare was the sketch in the rest of the show in which Trump didn’t also come up as object of ridicule, amusement or abject fear. Look for the… »

Playing amiable barkeep “Val” to Kate McKinnon’s anxious Hillary Rodham Clinton, the real Hrc walked away with the premiere outing of SNL’s 41st season, kidding herself, singing “Lean On Me” and even hanging around long enough to introduce Miley Cyrus, who was doubling as host and musical guest. It was an A+ appearance (video above) in a solid B show. The cold open featured Donald and Melania Trump (Taran Killam, new to the imitation game following prior Trump… »

2 October 2015 3:53 PM, PDT

The most ominous musical chord on TV is no more, as HBO’s The Leftovers gets a plucky alt-country opening title sequence to replace the grim, spooky (but quite wonderful) bombast of its debut season. The new main title song, Iris DeMent’s spry, winsome 1992 bluegrass tune “Let The Mystery Be,” kicks off with Sunday’s Season 2 debut at 9 Pm.
