On last night’s Saturday Night Live, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson stopped by the Weekend Update as their Zoolander characters, Derek Zoolander and Hansel to discuss fashion in politics. “Listen, Colin, we’re not here to talk about fashion,” Hansel told host Colin Jost. “We’re here to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear […]

The return of Donald Trump to the stage helped lift ratings for last night’s Republican presidential primary debate on ABC, which has drawn the largest audience for a political gathering of either party in 2016 — and the network’s largest non-sports audience on a Saturday in more than 14 years.
Nielsen estimates that 13.2 million watched the Gop New Hampshire debate from 8:15-10:45 p.m. Et — up from the 11.09 million who watched the Fox Business Network debate on Jan. 14 and the 12.47 million tuning in for the Trump-less Fox News Channel debate on Jan. 28. It also was much higher-rated than the two Democratic debates of the year on NBC (10.16 million on Jan. 17) and MSNBC (4.47 million last Thursday).
The ABC Republican debate special delivered the network’s largest audience on a Saturday since September 2001. In January 2012, a Gop debate on the Alphabet drew 6.27 million viewers.
While the viewership for the Gop New Hampshire debate was very impressive, »

After rumors circulated that Bernie Sanders, Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate, would appear on Saturday Night Live, he did indeed make an appearance alongside host Larry David. Sanders was nowhere to be found during David’s initial skits channeling the politician. He didn’t make an appearance during the cold open or David’s monologue. But Sanders finally made […]

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson dropped by Saturday Night Live this week as their Zoolander characters, Derek Zoolander and Hansel, "to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics." However, during the Weekend Update, the men, reverted back to their old ways, and went on to assess Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's style. Hansel weighed in on Hillary's fashion sense saying, "Hillary's from the '90s, which is really hot right now," while Zoolander stated that her style reminded him of his icon, Kim Jong-un. The men also confused Ted Cruz for Tom Cruise before going in on Donald. Watch the clip above now, and then check out Larry David's triumphant return to SNL. »

Larry David, this week’s “Saturday Night Live” guest host, gave the show some political punch with his uproarious Bernie Sanders impersonation. He does a take-off of his own HBO show–with a twist–and plays a plutocrat on a sinking ship opposite Sanders himself. Feel the Bern! Sanders, the curmudgeonly Vermont Senator with stooped shoulders and grey hair, is tailor-made for David’s comedic skills. ...Read More »

Larry David reprised his role as Bernie Sanders when he returned to host Saturday Night Live this week, and we have to say, it was the best thing since Curb Your Enthusiasm. In an effort to spoof the comedy, David played out Bernie's campaign in Iowa as if it was an episode on the HBO series, refusing to shake hands with a woman (Leslie Jones) because she coughed, saying, "I am running for president. I do not shake disgusting hands," and then, not offering to help a lady (Aidy Bryant) who dislocated her shoulder. In true Curb Your Enthusiasm fashion, Bernie ends up losing the Iowa caucus vote by five votes, which is the same number of people he offended prior to the polls closing. Check out the hilarious spoof above now! »

Earlier this season on Saturday Night Live, Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David made a few surprise appearances, portraying Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in episodes hosted by Tracy Morgan and Donald Trump. Last night, Larry David hosted SNL, and, as expected, the actor/writer once again portrayed Bernie Sanders, but in a way most hadn't expected. One of last night's most popular sketches was a spoof on Larry David's own show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, entitled Bern Your Enthusiasm.
The sketch features Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail in Iowa, where the caucus was recently held, where the Presidential candidate is shaking hands with his supporters after a rally. The plot thickens when an avid fan (Leslie Jones) wants to shake his hand, but she coughs into her hand first, which creates quite a stir when the candidate refuses to shake her "germ-infested hand." The sketch also features »
Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, but the show was stolen during the regular sketch Weekend Update, with two surprise guests stopping by. Zoolander 2 stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an unannounced appearance as their beloved characters Derek Zoolander and Hansel. While they were supposed to discuss Fashion Week in New York City, they instead discussed the fashion style of this year's Presidential candidates, where they shared their thoughts on Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and, of course, Donald Trump.
Their appearance came just days after the final trailer was released, which revealed that the obscure character Evil DJ (Justin Theroux) from the original Zoolander will return. In the original Zoolander, Justin Theroux had a small part as Evil DJ, who challenged both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to a break-dance showdown, set to the original "Relax." While he wasn't very well-known at the time, »
For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.
Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.
And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.
Here’s the full list of winners from last night:

Ted Cruz’s dirty little trick on fellow Republican Ben Carson in the Iowa Caucuses was given the “Saturday Night Live” treatment in the show’s cold open. The presidential candidate is so unlikable not even his own daughter can stand him. But, hey, is he ever funny. SNL regular Taran Killam had the honor of playing the sleazy politician. ...Read More »

There’s only one thing hotter than fashion right now, and that’s politics — at least, according to male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel.
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson stopped by “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” segment as the ridiculously good looking men, giving their opinions on not fashion, but the current political environment, with the “Iowa couscous” having just wrapped up. Unsurprisingly, this confused co-host Colin Jost.
“We’re not here to talk about fashion,” Wilson told him. “We’re here to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics.”
Of course, the conversation inevitably turned to fashion, with the models commenting on the candidates’ styles. Clinton’s rocking a ’90s look, “which is really hot right now,” Hansel explained. Meanwhile, her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, who made his own elongated appearance on the show that night, dons a style best described as “99 percent off at JCPenney. »

There's something about Larry (David). The man who, by his own account, once quit his writing job at SNL only to come back the next day, pretending he didn’t, lit up the stage last night as a host in its 41st season — in his own particular way, of course. Last night's episode was as Larry David an offering as it could be. If a good portion of America hates “New York Values,” as Ted Cruz recently implied, then a good portion of America would have hated last night’s show. It was an SNL that understood, celebrated, and held its guest aloft, in all his curmudgeonly glory. It helps that we collectively have twenty-plus years of Larry David-speak in our brains to refer back to, be it from Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, or the mouth of Larry himself. It also helps that America (or at least, the New »

Saturday Night Live delivered an exemplary episode of television last night, offering host Larry David a chance to flex his comedic chops and riff to his heart’s content. However, one of the bets bits of the night didn’t even involve the host; it took place during Weekend Update and featured some very special, really, really, really ridiculously good looking guests. Derek Zoolander and Hansel appeared not only to promote their upcoming movie Zoolander 2, but also to tear apart the fashion sense of contemporary politicians. Check out the sketch below. Under the false pretense that they have arrived on the show to talk about Fashion Week, the pair of male models immediately delve into a roast of America’s top politicians. Derek makes the bold comparison that Hillary Clinton dresses like Kim Jong Un, while also pointing out that Bernie Sanders dresses like he buys his »
Larry David reprised his role as Bernie Sanders and even got to act alongside the Democratic presidential candidate while hosting NBC's Saturday Night Live. And it was pretty, pretty, pretty good. The actor, a former SNL writer, also parodied his hit HBO comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, while playing, yep, Sanders. The show has been on hiatus since 2011. David, 68, had first parodied Sanders on SNL last October. Also during Saturday's episode, the band The 1975 performed its tracks "The Sound" and "Love Me." In a skit titled "Bern Your Enthusiasm," David played a hybrid of »
There's still no word on when Larry David will be making a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm but, last night on Saturday Night Live, he gave fans perhaps the next best thing. While hosting SNL, David starred in a sketch that parodied Curb and (once again) played Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders.
Titled Bern Your Enthusiasm, the sketch shows Sanders upsetting voters (Leslie Jones and Aidy Bryant) in Iowa, despite the best efforts of his Curb-like friends (Bobby Moynihan, Cecily Strong, and Jay Pharoah).

Bernie Sanders and Larry David weren’t the only stars to get some big laughs on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Two of the world’s sexiest male models appeared alongside Colin Jost on Weekend Update to talk politics and fashion. “Zoolander 2” characters Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) argued Hillary Clinton may have beat Sanders in Iowa “because the ’90s are very hot right now.” “Hillary’s style reminds me of one of my all-time fashion icons: Kim Jong-un,” Zoolander said before bashing her competition. “Bernie’s a champion of the 99 percent — apparently the 99 percent off at JCPenney. »

With the Presidential primary campaign in full swing, Saturday Night Live delivered another solid ratings showing last night, with the show hosted by Larry David and featuring appearances by Democratic candidate (and David doppelgänger) Bernie Sanders drawing a 5.1 household rating in the metered markets and a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters. That was on par in households with the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler-hosted holiday SNL edition (5.1… »
It may not have the buzz or attention as last year, but Saturday Night Live is quietly having another great season. That's an incredibly unhip thing to say, as bashing the show seems like a national pastime for many, especially those that don't actually watch it. It's been a great 16+ months for the show, full of renewed energy and surprises. In that respect, Larry David fits right into the show's current renaissance: His impression of Bernie Sanders last fall was surprising yet, in retrospect, almost inevitable. It wasn't surprising that »
Manchester, New Hampshire — The TV production tents are on ice — literally — outside the Radisson Hotel in downtown Manchester today as news crews prepare for action in the first-in-the-nation primary on Tuesday.
The snowfall last week made for chilly temperatures in the tents housing equipment and some personnel for NBC News, ABC News and other outlets. Inside the hotel, news orgs have overrun the lobby and restaurant area.
A Bloomberg News suite is carefully marked “invitation-only.” MSNBC has taken over Jd’s Tavern with plans to produce its daytime shows from the bar attached to the Radisson’s restaurant starting on Monday. Today’s edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press” originated from the hotel’s Armory Ballroom.
In the Radisson restaurant this morning, virtually every patron had a news credential hanging around his or her neck. Production staffers have been in the hotel long enough that server Jackie can guess what they want for breakfast. »
