Oh, Stefon, how we have missed you so! The “Saturday Night Live” skit featuring Bill Hader cracking up at his own jokes actually managed to top itself this week. I cannot even tell you the major snorts I snorted after hearing Stefon’s impression of “Donald Duck waking up from a Vietnam dream.” Also, maybe the best line ever? “This place has everything: shutes, ladders, the outdoor concert from a Zoloft commercial.” Indeed!

On this week’s criminally unfunny “Saturday Night Live,” featuring underused host Jennifer Lawrence, there was one actually hilarious moment; the show did a faux commercial for Starbucks’ new enhanced Verismo system, which gives you the authentic Starbucks customer experience. Nobody spelling your name right? Check. Getting your drink wrong? Yup. Excessively long wait times? Uh huh. And a cornucopia of gross coffee refuse strewn about everywhere? You betcha.
The last time Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live,” he performed a musical number and did a righteous backflip during his opening monologue. Oh yeah, and Number #1 Fan Julie Gerstein was in the country to watch him on TV. Not this time! JG is on vacay while JGL is on “SNL,” but hopefully she’s got it on her TiVo. OK, TTYL. [NBC]
The man who taught several generations about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll is hosting this week’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.” Sadly, Mick Jagger’s probably got less of a drug problem these days than certain other recent hosts who shall remain nameless. [Pop Culture Brain]
Maybe you love Andy Samberg and co.’s weekly “Saturday Night Live” Digital Shorts. Maybe you don’t. Either way, you have gotta watch this clip if only to catch Jon Hamm thrusting his pelvis in Justin Bieber’s teenage face.
This past weekend, new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon made her debut, and by all accounts, was a hit. And that’s a good, especially since rumors persist that key lady cast member Kristin Wiig will be leaving at the end of this season. Here, McKinnon appears for a scant 30 seconds, doing a pitch-perfect impression of Bravo TV’s Tabitha Coffey. And after the jump, check out her impersonation of Penelope Cruz, appearing in a Pantene commercial with host Sofia Vergara. Enjoy! Keep reading »
Squee! Rumor has it “Saturday Night Live” has added a female cast member named Kate McKinnon and she is someone we already know and love around these parts! Kate starred in “Vag Magazine,” the kickass webseries that spoofed women who work at a feminist magazine, as the flaky girl Bethanny. Comedic Kate hails from the Upright Citizens Brigade, appeared on LOGO’s “The Big Gay Sketch Show” and has a movie coming out called “Hannah Has A Ho-Phase,” which sounds right up our alley. Deadline Hollywood reports that “SNL” head honcho Lorne Micheals has been auditioning several ladies for the show and Kate will debut next Saturday in the episode hosted by Sofia Vergara. The Mary Sue tells us that Kate is the first out lesbian to ever appear on the show and she’ll be the first openly gay cast member in 27 years. Mazel tov, Kate McKinnon — we’re a fan already.

Well lookie here, it appears that Lindsay Lohan’s promos for her episode of “Saturday Night Live” aren’t looking so bad after all. This weekend will be her fourth time hosting, so she knows what she’s getting into, and supposedly has told producers that “nothing is off limits.” Hopefully they’ll be mildly kind (while still packing a punch). We’re rooting for you Lindz — though we’re really not sure why! [Pop Culture Brain]
Anyone else convinced Anna Faris on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend is going to be baller? I, for one, am psyched to see her loopy-loo goofy girl humor go head to head with Kristen Wiig. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll bring that hottie husband of hers, Chris Pratt, along for the ride, too. [NBC]
Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend. She will be hosting while Ellie Goulding, aka the chickadee who played the royal wedding, does the musical guest thing. “SNL” promos are never quite as funny as I want them to be, but still—just had to share these because we love Tina that much.
