Everybody speculated Taylor Swift would use her hosting powers to skewer Hennessy-swigging rude boy Kanye West in her “SNL” monologue and she kind of did, towards the end. But I heard myself shrieking, “Yeah, Taylor!” when she called out another jerk in Hollywood who’s done her wrong: ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, who she says cheated. Very ballsy. I love it!

My favorite “country” music singer, Taylor Swift, will be hosting and performing on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and the promo pays tribute to the Kanye West debacle at the MTV Video Music Awards. Yes, this incident was rather amusing and ridiculous, but I’m gonna be a little annoyed if there are multiple references to it during Saturday’s show. A joke can only be funny so many times. (Oh, and Taylor, please sing “Tell Me Why.” I like that one.) Keep reading »
This week has been a great one for my fantasy boyfriends Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ryan Gosling and thus it’s been a great week for me too. Let’s get to the big news:
- Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time on Nov. 21. By the looks of this video he posted on his blog, he is super duper amped about it. Me too, JGL, me too!
- Ryan Gosling has just been cast in the movie, “The Wettest Country in the World,” which is just soooo appropriately named given the state of my you-know-what whenever I see his handsome face.
The only that would make both of these pieces of news even better is if Ryan got tapped to host “SNL” the week after JGL and JGL was cast in “The Wettest Country in the World” (replacing that douche, Shia LaBeouf, Ryan’s current co-star). Make it happen, universe! Keep reading »
- Hearings have begun concerning Anna Nicole Smith‘s last painful days when she was too weak to walk and could only drink Pedialyte through a baby bottle. [L.A. Times] — The more that’s revealed about her story, the sadder and sorrier that it becomes.

- The International Glove Association fears for the future of mittens. Apparently, as people become obese, they store more heat and the extra comes out through the extremities, heating the hands. With more Americans being categorized as obese, fewer folks may require the mittens. [AOL] — International Glove Association? No more mittens? This is just too weird.
If Lady Gaga didn’t end up winning over some of her haters last night, after performing on “Saturday Night Live,” then they’re a lost cause. The pop diva absolutely knocked it out of the park, performing both “Paparazzi” and a medley of her songs, including “Poker Face” (in a gyroscope-enabled dress, natch) — showing off not only her ability to put on an entertaining show, but also her singing talent. Madonna showed up to join Gaga in one of my personal favorite regular skits, “Deep House Dish,” which came off a little awkward, but still was a nice little endorsement from the Queen of Pop. Clip of that, after the jump. Keep reading »
The 35th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” dropped a bomb on American TV screens – an F-bomb. On her first night on last weekend’s show, newest cast member Jenny Slate swore during the “Biker Chick Chat” skit. Slate’s only the most recent example of the “fleeting expletive” (an instance of profane language or images on a live broadcast). Here are some more examples of live profanity on television.
- “Saturday Night Live” has long been a bastion of bad language. The most famous instance came in 1981 when cast member Charles Rocket slipped up during a skit parodying Dallas and its “Who Shot J.R.?” episode, uttering “Oh man, it’s the first time I’ve been shot in my life. I’d like to know who the f**k did it.” (Rocket was fired later that year.) A year before Rocket’s expletive incident, future “Letterman” bandleader Paul Shaffer had let one loose. And in the ‘90s cast members Norm MacDonald and Cheri Oteri also cursed during the show. [NBC Miami]
- Rock stars have kept the FCC working overtime, too. When U2 appeared at the Golden Globes in 2003, frontman Bono described winning as “really, really f**king brilliant!” The government agency also looked into Motley Crue singer Vince Neil’s exuberant “Happy F**king New Year!” on the “Tonight Show”‘s Dec. 31 broadcast. After a 2005 “SNL” performance, NBC also had to answer for System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian, who yelled “f**k yeah!” (System was performing their song “B.Y.O.B.,” which frequently uses the line “Where the f**k are you?”).

Fall is in full swing, and your TV is probably your best friend right now thanks to all the new shows on air. The biggest news this week: tomorrow night “The Hills” are alive with the sound of Kristin. Also going down this week: a special guest star belts it out on “Glee“; “Private Practice” returns after a cliffhanger; and Ryan Reynolds and Lady Gaga team up on “Saturday Night Live.” Keep reading »
And this is her face just seconds after doing it. Jenny Slate, the newest addition to “Saturday Night Live,” kick-started her time on the seminal comedy show by accidentally letting the F-bomb slip during the show’s season premiere. (An NBC spokeswoman told Radaronline.com that Slate will not be fired. We should all be so lucky!) I would say that Lorne Michaels is probably pissed, except the episode was so not funny, that he’s probably grateful for the distraction. Watch the clip here. Keep reading »
