World, meet new celebrity power couple #Jaidy. Oh, you hate them? Sorry. Jim Carrey and “SNL” star Aidy Bryant are the type of comic actors that will do anything for attention, even if that means using this week's “Saturday Night Live” promos to create a fake Hollywood relationship, complete with an obnoxious nickname and hashtag — which in their case, is #Jaidy. So maybe the results weren't well-received and the hashtag didn't trend, but it made for a pretty funny (if awkward) commercial for the upcoming episode.

Saturday Night Live writer Leslie Jones has been promoted out of the writer’s room and onto the stage. She was hired back in January along with Lakendra Tooks and Sasheer Zamata in response to criticisms of the lack of African-Americans on SNL. Jones has done some sketches in the past, but a recent Weekend Update skit drew some controversy.
“Number 1 Slave Draft Pick” involved Jones congratulating Lupita Nyong’o for her Oscar win, then moved to how Jones had problems with men. She said she would have more luck in the Old South, as a strong baby-making slave. Many had problems with the message, but Jones stood by it, saying if a man said something similar in a rap it would be fine.
No word yet on when Jones will make her debut.

Fey said from the stage during her speech. "And the answer was like, 'Yeah, you can get her.' She was living in Woodstock and the phone was not ringing. And we called her and were like, 'Do »

It's official! Saturday Night Live has promoted Leslie Jones from writer (and frequent guest star on Weekend Update) to full-time cast member. The announcement comes on the heels of a big shakeup for the weekly segment, with The Daily Show's Michael Che replacing Cecily Strong just last month.

Jones has been working at 30 Rock as a staff writer for the show since early this year and was one of the 12 finalists vying for a cast member role last year. Deadline was the first to break the news. The spot »
For the first time in its 40-year-history, the Saturday Night Live cast includes two black women
Saturday Night Live is starting to look a little bit more like the rest of America, at least in terms of diversity. First the NBC staple installed Michael Che as the first black anchor for its long-running Weekend Update segment, and now Leslie Jones has been promoted from a writer on the show to a featured player. Her first official episode as a cast member will be the 25 October episode featuring Jim Carrey as host. The poor woman always to have her time at SNL linked to Jim Carrey.
This is the first time in its 40-year history that SNL will be the home to two black women, Jones and Sasheer Zamata. Both women found their way to the show when SNL came under fire in 2013 for not having any black women in its »

40 years after Richard Nixon's resignation, Harry Shearer is playing the 37th President's shady White House dealings for laughs. Shearer is the star of Nixon's The One, a six-episode series that is now available via My Damn Channel. In Nixon's The One, Shearer steers the former President through a series of conversations with his aides and confidants. The series' main gimmick is that the script is entirely true to life; Shearer and co-creator Stanley Kutler combed through hundreds of hours of White House tapes in search of “bizarre, funny, spooky, crazy, weird conversations." The result is a profile of a man who Shearer calls "the great American comic character of the 20th century. The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live cast member has been fascinated with Nixon from a young age; grew up in California in the 50s, when Nixon served as one of the state's Us Senators. "He was so »
