hosted “Saturday Night Live”
this weekend, and while it was an improvement over January Jones’ epic failing the previous week, the episode was meh. The best moments were definitely JGL’s singin’ and and dancin’ and back-flippin’ in the opening monologue (above), as well as his turn as Jason Mraz on “The Mellow Show,” featuring an appearance by Dave Matthews as Ozzy Osbourne, after the jump.

This weekend, January Jones
‘ guest-hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live”
turned out to be a disappointing failure. Fart jokes? Really?
But at least the “Mad Men”
princess got a few giggles out of me with a “Ladies’ Guide To Party Planning.” The best part is when she has to go to the bathroom and leaves for the woods with a paper bag. Keep reading »
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!
Keep watching for the cutest moment ever when Tay-Tay blew a kiss and mouthed “I love you” to her new guy, Taylor Lautner. Guess that means it’s official? Keep reading »
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:
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 »
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 »
Let’s talk about how mother-effing excited I am for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.” Yes, last week’s season premiere totally blew, but tomorrow night, Mr. Scarlett Johansson, aka my second favorite Ryan in Hollywood — Ryan Reynolds
— is hosting, with musical guest, Lady Gaga
. This shiz is gonna be hot. Promo above. 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?”).
