Paul McCartney Makes Merry With Fallon and Timberlake on 'SNL'
Remember the day before your school's Christmas vacation, when you and the other kids were so wild with excitement that you couldn’t even stay in your seats, so your teacher just passed out candy canes and put on a video and got the hell out of the way? I'm pretty sure that was exactly how it felt in Studio 8H last night, as Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake delivered a near-perfect Christmas episode to an ecstatic crowd. These guys were the ideal choice to finish out the year: They

Studio 60 Predicted SNL’s Wise Men Sketch

Studio 60 Predicted SNL’s Wise Men Sketch
This past Saturday's John Goodman–hosted Saturday Night Live was not the best episode of the season. A few bright spots (like Goodman's "Last Call" sketch with Kate McKinnon) and one serious low point: "Three Wise Guys," which found Goodman flanked by noted comedians Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. It's a spoof of the three wise men. Get it? They're in tracksuits, but they're on camels. The sketch was bad. How bad was it? So bad it was pitched as a sketch on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, a show notorious for its awful show-within-a-show sketch ideas.On the Christmas episode (itself deeply terrible), Tom (Nate Corddry) and Simon (D.L. Hughley) sit in on a writers meeting with Lucy (Lucy Davis) and Darius (Columbus Short, now on Scandal), where Darius pitches a sketch called "We Three Wise Guys." He's mostly ignored, which we now know is the correct response.

Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro and John Goodman are the 'Three Wise Guys' on 'SNL'
Track suits and turbans came together in star-studded fashion on "SNL" last night thanks to "Three Wise Guys," in which host John Goodman and "Grudge Match" co-stars Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone played "lesser" versions of the Biblical Magi present at the scene of the baby Jesus's virgin birth. "Do we even know his last name, this Jesus?" asks one. "Christ, I don't know," answers another. Also, the inevitable camel toe joke. Merry freakin' Christmas, everybody. Follow Riot on Twitter

Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone Ride Camels With John Goodman on Saturday Night Live—Watch Now!
Just call John Goodman, Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro the Three Wise Guys. Goodman, who was hosting Saturday Night Live for the 13th! time on Dec. 14, teamed up for a humorous Christmas-themed skit with the Grudge Match stars. The trio, riding their camels in bright tracksuits, was on their way to deliver gifts to the baby Jesus. Except, they weren't from the Far East, but "rather from the east coast, mainly Long Island and New Jersey." And the whole journey consisted of the men telling jokes and gossiping about the baby. "Do we even know his last name, this Jesus?" Goodman asked his pals. "Christ, I don't know," De Niro responded as the audience laughed....

Watch: Highlights from a Very John Goodman Christmas SNL (Video)
Not even John Goodman's jovial versatility and past hosting experience (this was his 13th time around) could revive this week's paltry set of Saturday Night Live sketches. While there was no great standout, several skits gave us at least a little something. In the cold open about Obama's various hiccups at Nelson Mandela's funeral, while Kate McKinnon presented one of her best impressions--Angela Merkel--the skit centered on the inept sign language interpreter, a variation of a used joke that was far better the first time. It looked like little effort was made with "Inside Llewyn Davis" star John Goodman's monologue: he just introduced himself and then sang a song called "All I Want for Christmas is Booty."  Judging from audience response, the favorite sketch of the night was "Three Wise Guys," which brought out Grudge Match" co-stars Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone to join

'Saturday Night Live': John Goodman brings Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone for 13th hosting gig

When it's a host's 13th time on "Saturday Night Live," there are a few givens: first, there will be mad special guests. Second, it's definitely going to be funny. Both were true for John Goodman, whose lucky 13 on Dec. 14 saw special guests like Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone perform in a solid lineup of funny sketches.

Let's revisit them:

Mandela Sign Language Interpreter Cold Open

The "SNL" opening sketch is often a snoozer -- something political-themed and not laugh out loud funny -- but Kenan Thompson as a "sign language" interpreter gesturing nonsense behind Jay Pharoah's President Obama was hilarious.

Monologue

Nailed it -- we assumed Goodman would sing in his monologue, though it wasn't a folky "Inside Llewyn Davis" tie-in, instead a duet with Thompson on the surprisingly catchy "All I Want for Christmas is Booty."

Host John Goodman Makes 13th Trip To ‘SNL,’ Stallone & De Niro Cameo For ‘Grudge Match’: Video

Last night marked Saturday Night Live hosting gig #13 for John Goodman, who noted that he’d last hosted in 2001 but stopped “because I had to work.” Speaking of having to work, the Inside Llewyn Davis co-star wasn’t the only veteran actor who showed up to promote a new flick: Grudge Match duo Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro dropped by to cameo alongside Goodman as the “Three Wise Guys” in a pre-holiday Nativity sketch (Sly & De Niro’s old-guy boxing pic hits theaters on Christmas Day). Unfortunately they lacked the ease Goodman had elsewhere even dressed as a snowflake and a woman. Meanwhile Kenan Thompson got significant screentime in multiple sketches through the night, including a stint as Black Santa as Weekend Update poked fun at Megyn Kelly‘s recent yuletide comments.

Is 13 an unlucky number?

Based on John Goodman‘s hosting gig on this week’s Saturday Night Live — no lie, it was his 13th time on the job — I’m pretty much convinced the answer is “yes.”

Indeed, Goodman was saddled with such grimly unfunny material, I half wondered if the Grinch had arrived at Studio 8H, loaded all of this week’s punch lines into a sack and took ‘em back up the chimney. Or maybe he just hurled ‘em into a blazing fire.

'Saturday Night Live'. Recap: John Goodman Hosts For 13th Time

John Goodman hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend – his 13th time overall and first since 2001, when Ja Rule seved as the sketch show’s musical guest.

Obama On Mandela Funeral

Jay Pharoah reprised his impersonation of Barack Obama in Saturday Night Live’s cold open, while Kenan Thompson played the now infamous fake sign language interpreter from Nelson Mandela's funeral. Kate McKinnon joined him at the podium as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and asked for a selfie with the president, saying, “I feel like you kind of owe me after that wiretapping mein cell phone thing.”

Dearborn Community Playhouse Holiday Pageant

Donning a Midwestern accent, Goodman played a doctor who moonlights as a snowflake in the Dearborn Community Playhouse Holiday Pageant. As he teetered back in forth, he was joined by Aidy Bryant, Vanessa Bayer and Thompson. All of the snowflake dancers were heard in voiceover cursing themselves for

John Goodman brought mainstays from his comedic bag of tricks to this week's Saturday Night Live: drag, yelling and good old blues. The actor, who hosted for the 13th time, teamed up with Kenan Thompson for a soulful opening monologue song, "All I want for Christmas is Booty." Later, he played a woman suing her employer, claiming she was fired for being too hot. (She wasn't.) Goodman also teamed up with surprise guests (and Grudge Match costars) Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone to tell the story of “Three Wise Guys." This camel-riding trio was on

Mark Harmon to Star in ‘Certain Prey’ for USA

Mark Harmon, star of television’s highest rated program, will be stepping out briefly to headline a new two-hour movie, Certain Prey, for USA Network.

The NCIS star has signed on for the network’s first original movie since the 2005 flick Three Wise Guys. In Certain Prey, Harmon will play Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport, who is on the trail of a hit-woman, all the while being hunted himself by a crazed killer.

The script for Certain Prey was written by Chris Gerolmo (Citizen X, Mississippi Burning), and will be produced by Harmon, Michael Jaffe and Howard Braunstein. Harmon’s role as producer and star is no doubt a suitable perk linked to his recent resigning with his top-rated CBS drama ...
