If your parents are the type who only get to see you a few times a year and gush about you to anyone who will listen in between, going home for Thanksgiving probably means being treating like a queen the whole weekend. After living in a tiny city apartment, eating a steady stream of takeout and lugging your clothes to the laundromat, your childhood home can feel like a five-star resort. “Saturday Night Live” brought together Cameron Diaz, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Vanessa Bayer, Sasheer Zamata and Lil’ Baby Aidy Bryant to celebrate spending Thanksgiving back at home.
You know that moment when you suddenly realize you’re a Taylor Swift fan even though you don’t want to be? And that feeling of epic vertigo that comes immediately afterward? No? Well, the music fans in this “Saturday Night Live” sketch do, and Swiftamine is here to save the day. Even Taylor would like to buy herself some.
On Saturday, Bill Hader made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” and his legendary character Stefon paid a visit to Weekend Update for the first time since Hader left the show. The segment’s “city correspondent” hasn’t changed a bit — and that’s how we like it. Watch him do us all a public service by delivering the latest news about the city’s hottest clubs while attempting to stifle his own laughter. [HuffPost]
Aidy Bryant is very quickly becoming my favorite cast member (okay, besides Kate Mackinnon) on “Saturday Night Live.” On last night’s season premiere, hosted by the drool-worthy Chris Pratt, Bryant slayed the best skit of the night, which featured her and Pratt getting over their shyness and flirting with each other via raunchy, booty-heavy rap lyrics.
There’s a Stefon-sized hole in my heart that will never be filled. And when Bill Hader visited “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” the two former “Saturday Night Live” co-stars made clear they are every bit as emotional about Stefon as the rest of us. Filming the last-ever Stefon sketch, when he leaves Anderson Cooper at the altar and runs off with Seth, made both of these guys cry. Aw, I get choked up just thinking about it.
